Industry Trends

Throughout the forecast period, the ventral hernia market share will increase at the expense of the inguinal hernia market. This shift will be a result of lower growth in the inguinal hernia market, compared to the ventral hernia repair market, and not an actual decline in the inguinal hernia market. The rising frequency of elderly and obese individuals will contribute to the continuous increase in the number of hernia repair procedures, which, in turn, will lead to demand for all types of hernia repair devices.

A hernia is a condition in which part of the intestine bulges through a weak area in the abdominal muscles. Hernias can cause pain and discomfort in the patient, and in more severe cases, can even cause the twisting of the intestine, which would subsequently require removal. Hernia repair involves re-positioning the intestine into the body cavity. It is one of the most commonly performed procedures in Europe and the U.S. The rising demand for hernia repair is intrinsically linked to the growing elderly and obese populations, as individuals from these groups are at a high risk of developing a hernia during surgical procedures.

Hernia Repair Market Share Insights

The leading competitor in the U.S. hernia repair market is C. R. Bard. The company competed in the allograft, xenograft and alloplast segments. In the allograft segment, C.R. Bard offers an ADM device, AlloMax™. AlloMax™ undergoes a process of tissue-graft cleaning and preservation known as the Tutoplast® process beginning with a comprehensive donor screening, followed by standard serological screens. This product is used mostly for ventral hernia repair but can also be used for inguinal hernia repair.

The leading competitor in the European hernia repair market is Medtronic, and the company’s product line includes a biologic matrix and synthetic mesh. The company led the biologic segment. Their flagship product, Permacol™, is an ADM derived from porcine dermis.  The product is purified using a gentle process that is not damaging to the 3D collagen matrix, before being chemically cross-linked with non-calcifying hexamethylene diisocyanate (HMDI). This purification process separates this product from other biologic tissues as it makes the product highly resistant to breakdown collagenases.

Other companies analyzed include: Ethicon, Aesculap/B. Braun, LifeCell, Cook Medical, and Tutogen.
