Global Hernia Repair Devices Market Overview


Hernia Repair Devices Market was valued at US$ 5.3 billion in 2024 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% to reach US$ 8.5 billion by 2034.

One of the most common procedures done worldwide is the treatment of a hernia. A hernia is when the intestines or other organs emerge through a weak area in the abdominal wall. The muscle rupture enlarges and additional tissue or organs are squeezed through the opening to form a bag if treatment is not done. This seeming lump or swelling is one of the primary signs of a hernia. The weak abdominal wall may be present from birth or develop later in life. Although they can form in other areas, such the navel, groin is where hernias most commonly arise. If a bulge is readily pulled back through the abdominal wall, it is called a reducible hernia. If the lump is not responsive to physical pressure, it may be a non-reducible hernia, which can have serious repercussions.

Men are more likely than women to suffer from hernias. Based on statistical data, around 25% of men and 2% of women get inguinal hernias. Age, smoking, obesity, an unhealthy lifestyle, and bad lifestyle choices are risk factors for this condition. Approximately 75% of adult hernias develop in the groin, which has led to a rise in the use of hernia repair devices in this population. Over the course of the projected period, the increased prevalence of hernias is likely to create need for effective hernia repair, which will propel market expansion.

In recent years, there has been a remarkable surge in the technological developments of hernia repair equipment. Innovations like meshes and articulating fixation devices are created to solve issues that arise during laparoscopic procedures. Furthermore, these devices provide surgeons with improved access to weak areas of the abdominal wall and allow them to firmly implant the mesh at the appropriate body site, which is anticipated to stimulate market expansion in the forecast period. Thus, the hernia repair devices market is anticipated to rise in the given period due the rise in hernia cases, rising obese and geriatric population, and technological advancements.

Global Hernia Repair Devices Market Dynamics

Hernia Repair Devices Market Key Drivers:

  • Increase in hernia prevalence

The main driver driving the hernia repair devices market is the rise in the hernia disease cases all across the world. There has been a significant increase in the prevalence of illnesses and lifestyle diseases including diabetes, obesity, lung disorders and age related complications. These factors give rise to hernia in the body. For example, according to a Wolters Kluwers’ article from April 2022, groin hernias are the most common surgical condition treated by primary care physicians in the United States. Each year, 1.6 million diagnoses and 500,000 surgical operations are made for this condition. Therefore, a high incidence of hernia cases drives up demand for hernia repair devices and propels the market's expansion.

This is in turn driving the healthcare professionals and researchers to come up with new and innovative ways to treat hernia based on the patient’s preferences. As a result, this has led to improvements in healthcare systems that enable the rapid and early detection and treatment of hernia, rising population specifically the geriatric and bariatric pool of the population, consequently driving the Hernia Repair Devices market further.

  • Rising number of obese people

In the treatment of hernias, treating obese people has become increasingly important due to the increase in the prevalence of hernias and their numbers. Obesity and being overweight place additional strain and pressure on the abdominal muscles, weakening them and increasing the incidence of hernias. In addition, after undergoing surgery to repair a hernia, those who disregard the recommended lifestyle modifications and carry heavy things still have a higher chance of developing new hernias. Obesity increases the risk of umbilical hernias and hernia recurrences in patients, both in the male and female populations. This is also giving rise to increased sales of hernia repair devices and therefore is driving the market further.

Hernia Repair Devices Market Restrains:

  • Costly Equipment

Costly equipment for the treatment of hernia often are disregarded by the working class of people. They cannot afford the high cost of procedures or expensive equipment. Hernias are common disorders that need to be repaired surgically. They occur when an organ or tissue protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. But the expense of correcting a hernia goes beyond the operation.

Hernia Repair Devices Market Opportunities:

  • Advancements in Minimal Invasive Surgeries

As hernias become more common, there is a growing need for hernia repair devices, which is creating opportunities for the development of novel and advanced hernia prevention strategies. Due to its reduced risk of discomfort, shortened hospital stay, and decreased complications, minimally invasive surgery is becoming more and more popular. Due to the increased demand for minimally invasive procedures and their advantages over traditional open operations, which include dangers such as wound infection, hernia surgeries using these techniques are becoming more and more common. Recent advances in technology and a better awareness of the unique demands of each patient have led to a greater focus on personalized and patient-specific hernia repair options. This method seeks to customize treatment by acknowledging that every patient's hernia is distinct in terms of its size, location, and other anatomical characteristics.    

Global Hernia Repair Devices Market Segmentation

Hernia Repair Devices Market is segmented based on Product Type, Repair Type, Hernia Type and Region.

Product Type Insights:

  • Fixation Devices:

In hernia repair, fixation devices are medical devices that hold meshes in place once they have been inserted to seal a hernia defect. By keeping the mesh from moving or detaching, they are essential to the long-term effectiveness of the repair.

  • Sutures:

Sutures are thread-like materials that are mainly used to stitch the repaired tissue together with the help of needles. Over the course of the surgery, sutures are utilized to close wounds, secure other components, and link the mesh to the surrounding tissue. Since they have a lesser chance of causing foreign body responses, absorbable sutures are the recommended choice for minimally invasive operations.

  • Tackers:

Tackers are small, metallic staples hat are used to fasten the mesh to the tissue with a special applicator. They are quicker to apply than sutures, and also provide strong and secure fixation for large hernias.

  • Permanent:

Small, metallic fasteners known as permanent tackers offer a firm, long-lasting connection. They do, however, have a somewhat larger chance of migrating and can be more noticeable beneath the skin.

  • Absorbable:

Absorbable tackers provide a less invasive alternative to patients with good attachment strength since they dissolve over time.

  • Sealants & Adhesives:

Sealants are derived from naturally occurring proteins, such as fibrin, that are produced from human blood plasma. They coagulate and surround the mesh, encouraging adhesion and healing. Adhesives are especially helpful for bigger meshes or intricate repairs since they provide fast fixing.

  • Meshes:

Meshes are small, flat sheets of material that are surgically placed during hernia repair to reinforce weak tissue and prevent the contents of the abdomen from visible through the breach.

  • Synthetic:

Synthetic meshes are composed of polypropylene, polyester, or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). They are commonly available, reasonably priced, and long-lasting, but for certain people, they may result in inflammation or persistent discomfort.

  • Biologic:

Biologic meshes are made of animal tissues such as the dermis of cows or pigs or are from synthetic materials covered in biological materials. Compared to synthetic meshes, they may be less painful and inflammatory because they are more biocompatible. Nevertheless, their cost is higher and their durability can be inferior to that of synthetic meshes.

  • Surgical Instruments:

Surgical instruments like minimally invasive tools are used for the treatment of hernia as they provide faster recovery rate with minimal pain to the patients.

Among the segments mentioned above the segment that dominates the market the most is the meshes segment due to their excellent resistance to infections and the accurate tensile strength required to prevent recurrence.

Repair Type Insights:

  • Tension Repair:

Tension repair is a conventional method that effectively repairs the hernial defect by stitching the weaker tissue together. Usually, non-absorbable nylon or polypropylene sutures are used to establish closure.

  • Tension Free Repair:

In a tension-free repair type, the defect is bridged and the weak spot is reinforced using a mesh implant, which eases the stress on the surrounding tissues. Devices like meshes and fixation devices fall under the tension-free repair type.

Among the segments discussed above the one that dominated the hernia repair devices the most Is the Tension-free hernia repair segment due to its lower recurrence rates, it is minimally invasive, it has improved long term outcomes and it is optimum for large hernias.

Hernia Type Insights:

  • Incisional Hernia:

At the locations of surgical incisions, incisional hernias develop. Due to greater stress and a higher risk of recurrence which could lead to the sepsis and infection near the tissue, repairs frequently require bigger meshes and permanent fixation.

  • Umbilical Hernia:

Both adults and newborns regularly get umbilical hernias. For minimally invasive repair, smaller synthetic or biologic meshes are usually used with absorbable sutures or adhesives.

  • Inguinal Hernia:

The most prevalent kind, which affects both men and women, is inguinal hernia. Because of their large volume and lower defect size, absorbable fixation and synthetic meshes are frequently used in devices.

·         Femoral Hernia:

Femoral hernias are more prevalent in women and are less common in men. owing to their placement and possible problems, it requires specific meshes and fixation devices.

  • Others:

Rare hernias like parastomal and hiatal hernias fall into the others category. The choice of device for various sorts of hernias varies according to the particular type and intricacy.

Among the segments mentioned above the inguinal hernia segment dominated the target market more than the other segments due to numerous tension-free procedures available and wide application and adoption of the surgical procedures.
