Hernia repair devices market can be segmented based on the type of product and equipment and procedure. The products and equipmentare further categorized into polymer and prosthetic mesh, biologic materials, surgical instruments and endoscopy equipment. Manufacturers are focusing on developing innovative and novel hernia repair products and equipment. The market for biologic materials is expected to grow faster compared to polymer or prosthetic mesh system as they render more advantages over the latter such as high flexibility, strength, less chances of rejection and infection. At present there has been increased adoption of biologic mesh and biologic allograft mesh systems which aid in fast recovery and negligible post-operative pain.
Continuous technological upgradation in developing endoscopes will further support growth and development of hernia repair devices. The rationale behind this is that these hi-tech endoscopes assure high reliability and accuracy of the surgical procedure with the minimum possibility of errors. Hence, with the perennial need for high performance oriented medical devices, the need and demand for effective hernia repair devices also increased.
Surgical procedure is the best option to deal with hernia as it provides long term results as compared to watchful waiting process for reverting hernia with the aid of certain medications. Tension repair and tension free repair procedures are the two main approaches employed for hernia repair. Tension free procedures are more advantageous than tension repair methods as they provide fast reco
