The hernia repair product market consists of products such as mesh materials, devices including fixation, equipment such as endoscopes, and instruments such as hand tools. The market has experienced steady demand and hernia repair procedures are consistent from year to year.
This report, Hernia Repair Device Markets and Procedures looks at the hernia repair industry segment. New product innovation, a steady demand for superior products by surgeons, and increasing procedure volumes will likely fuel growth over the next five years. It is expected that the hernia repair segment will become increasingly competitive over the next five years as small, niche companies expand product development and licensing options.
The report breaks out the market by product type: The worldwide hernia equipment market is composed of four major product types:
The development of prosthetic materials ushered in the current era of hernia surgery, allowing a tension-free repair to be performed even for the largest defects and the most difficult procedures. Tension-free mesh-based repairs (e.g., Lichtenstein, plug and patch) began to increase in number in the late 1980s. More recently, with the advent of laparoscopy for general surgery, various laparoscopic techniques have been developed for hernia repair. Laparoscopic mesh-based techniques dominate the inguinal hernia repair marketplace. The Lichtenstein tension-free mesh onlay repair is the most frequently performed inguinal hernia operation, with a recurrence rate of less than 1%. Although the use of laparoscopic techniques for bilateral or recurrent hernias is now accepted, the application of laparoscopy to unilateral primary inguinal hernias remains controversial.
