NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hernia repair devices global market is expected to grow at a single digit CAGR from 2015 to 2022. Hernia is a health condition, where internal organs or tissues pushes through a weak or damaged tissue and cause mild to severe pain, it might happen anywhere in the body but is most common in the abdominal region. There are different types of hernias such as inguinal, incisional, umbilical and other types of hernias depending on its location. Surgery is the gold standard treatment for a hernia especially the open surgery through a large incision or a laparoscopic surgery through a tiny incision, with a camera attached to a video monitor is used to repair. Nowadays, robotic surgical techniques are also being used to repair hernia. Hernia repair devices are medical devices that are used for the treatment of hernia. An increasing number of patients suffering from obesity, the rise in aging population, rising adoption of tension free repair procedures and increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures, are driving the growth of hernia repair devices global market. However, Inconsistent reimbursement and the high cost of hernia repair procedure, High implementation cost and regulations posed on robotic surgery, operation failure and recurrence of hernia in obese and Geriatric patients and also the risks and complications associated with hernia repair surgery and mesh are negatively influencing the expansion of hernia repair devices global market. Technological advancements such as improvements in meshes including Self-Fixating (gripping) Mesh and the articulating fixation devices are designed to overcome the issues facing from the laparoscopic procedure and also helps surgeons with greater access to weak spots within the abdominal wall and enable them to more securely tack mesh into exact place. Furthermore, drug-eluting hernia meshes, which reduce the chances of infection rate due to its antimicrobial activity, are the new advancements in this market. Continuous technological progress in Minimally-Invasive procedures such as laparoscopic surgery is becoming popular globally due to their better clinical outcomes than open surgical procedures. In addition, the adoption of robotic-assisted surgical technique in hernia repairs is becoming popular as it can offer a low rate of hernia recurrence, low pain, and fewer hospital stays compared to the other procedures. Hence, all these factors are hindering the growth of hernia repair devices market globally.
