Global Hernia Repair Devices Market 2017-2021
About Hernia Repair Devices
Hernia is a condition in which a tissue, organ, or surface of an organ bulges through the weak area of a muscle. It is commonly seen in the abdomen area. Smoking, poor nutrition, lifting heavy objects, malformation of abdominal wall, obesity, and congenital defects are the risk factors associated with hernia. Hernia repair devices can be classified into mesh products and fixation devices.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global hernia repair devices market to grow at a CAGR of 5.74% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Hernia Repair Devices Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global hernia repair devices market: B. Braun Melsungen, Cook Medical, C.R. Bard, Ethicon, and Medtronic.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: A.M.I., Advanced Medical Solutions Group, Allergan, ANGIOLOGICA, Aspide Medical, Atrium, Baxter, Betatech, BioCer Entwicklungs, COUSIN BIOTECH, Dipromed, DynaMesh, GRENA, Integra LifeSciences, Péters Surgical, Purple Surgical, THT BIO-SCIENCE, TransEasy Tech, Via Surgical, and W.L. Gore & Associates.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increasing popularity of robot-assisted surgeries in hernia repair. Robot-assisted surgical techniques are gaining popularity compared with open hernia repair procedures. Robotic surgeries offer high accuracy and consistency, and reduce the possible risk of human errors.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is wide acceptance of tension free repair procedures. Most surgeons are preferring tension-free mesh repair techniques such as Lichtenstein and laparoscopy over highly invasive Bassini and other conventional techniques. Lichtenstein hernioplasty is considered to be the gold-standard tension free repair procedure, which is widely practised by surgeons. This procedure involves the use of a piece of mesh to bridge the hernia and decrease the tension on the weakened abdominal wall.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complications and risks associated with hernia repair devices. With the increase in the usage of mesh products for hernia repair, there has been a rise in incidence of mesh-related complications. Though implantation of a mesh reduces hernia recurrence rates (7% for non-mesh technique and 1% for mesh repair), the possibility of mesh-related infections is high post-surgery, and also in the long run. Common complications of hernia repair include inflammation of the abdominal wall, seromas, chronic severe pain, mesh migration, and rejection of mesh adhesions and mesh-related infections.
