Surgical Mesh Consumption Analysis (2017-2021) in Comparison to Market Growth Forecasts (2022-2032)

Well-established use of surgical meshes for abdominal-wall reconstruction and hernia repair prominently governs the surgical mesh market. The risk of hernia increases with age; hence, rising geriatric population is a major propeller of the product market.

Hernia complications are also associated with stress and obesity. Constantly increasing sedentary lifestyle is significantly contributing to the use of surgical meshes. These factors are expected to lead to 1.7X growth of the hernia mesh devices market during the forecast years of 2022-2032.

Surgical mesh market forecast by Fact.MR

Key players in the surgical mesh market are using a blend of organic and inorganic strategies to dominate the landscape. Partnership and acquisitions are the most preferred strategies for consumer base expansion. Several collaborations with field surgeons and robust investments in R&D have guided product innovation. Standard and certified quality surgical meshes have established the brand identity of leading manufacturers in this space.

Fact.MR projects that the hernia mesh devices market will witness growth at 5.5% CAGR during 2022 and 2032, a little lower as compared to 7% CAGR recorded for 2017 to 2021.

What Market Trends are Set to Drive Surgical Mesh Consumption?

“Inhibited Recurrence Rate in Mesh-assisted Hernia Repair to Propel Surgical Mesh Demand”

Because of the noticeable difference they bring to the table, surgical netting is most commonly employed in hernia repair surgery. Traditional hernia repair operations are carried out by sewing the hole with no extra support to the tissues. This can lead to weakening of the tissue surrounding the suture and the recurrence of hernia.

Around 30% of standard hernia procedures are followed by a recurrence. Reinforcing the injured tissue with a surgical mesh increases tissue strength and reduces the risk of recurrent hernia to 2%.

As such, long-term tissue reinforcement is likely to drive surgical mesh product market growth by 1.7X over the assessment period.

“Product Customization into Different Shapes, Sizes & Textures According to Site-specific Needs”

The texture, porosity, nature, and tensile strength of a surgical mesh determine its application spectrum. Surgical netting that can withstand at least 180-mmHg pressure are more widely used, since meshes implanted to repair big hernias are subjected to 170-mmHg abdominal pressure during coughing and leaping.

Similarly, the type of mesh determines its application in various bodily locations. Although synthetic meshes are widely used for inguinal hernia repair procedures, these can cause serious consequences when used to treat pelvic floor issues. For pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence operations, biologic meshes and absorbable surgical meshes are highly preferred.

Thus, the availability of surgical netting (meshes) in various sizes, textures, types, etc., has expanded their application across regions, which bodes well for hernia surgical mesh suppliers.

Furthermore, innovations and advancements in surgical meshes will drive wider application and augment hernia mesh material market growth by US$ 909.9 Mn over the forecast years of 2022-2032.

What Do Surgical Mesh Manufacturers Need to Look Out For?

“Post-surgical Complications Such as Tissue Adhesion & Mesh Erosion”

Use of surgical meshes in tissue restoration promotes the body's non-self-response against the mesh. To facilitate natural healing, this reaction must be normalized over time; nevertheless, repeated incidents of extended foreign-body response resulting in tissue adhesion and fistula development have hampered product adoption.

Mesh erosion is a common post-surgical complication in pelvic floor dysfunction repair operations. Mesh erosion causes significant discomfort and increased susceptibility to a variety of urinary tract infections. This has resulted in a ban on the use of surgical meshes in transvaginal pelvic organ prolapse repair, significantly affecting market expansion.

Region-wise Insights

Which Region Accounts for Highest Demand for Surgical Mesh Products?

The North America surgical mesh market accounts for the largest market share of 40.1%.

This regional market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast years, driven by growing health awareness and health literacy among the population.

Moreover, increasing government health expenditure in North America is driving the accessibility of surgical meshes and mesh-assisted repairs.

How is the Market Faring across the APAC Region?

The Asia Pacific holds 18% of the global surgical mesh market share. However, market behavior varies significantly in different geographies of APAC.

East Asia has the most advanced healthcare systems and increasingly population senescence, marking 9.7% of the global market share of surgical meshes.

South Asia & ASEAN and Oceania contribute 6.1% and 2.2% to the global surgical mesh market, respectively. The East Asia, South Asia & ASEAN, and Oceania surgical mesh market is projected to grow at CAGRs of 5.1%, 5.1%, and 5.5%, respectively, during the forecast period of 2022-2032.

Extensive regulatory networks and universal health insurance coverage aided by the growing health literate population is adding to surging surgical mesh demand in the region.

However, surgical mesh repairs are beyond the affordability and accessibility of a major chunk of the population because of less government health expenditure in some APAC countries.

Category-wise Insights

Which Surgical Mesh Type Holds Away in the Market?

The surgical mesh market, under product type, is segmented into synthetic surgical meshes, biosynthetic surgical meshes, biologic surgical meshes, and hybrid/composite surgical meshes.

Amongst these, synthetic surgical meshes held the largest market share of 40.7% in 2021, and the segment is projected to witness a CAGR of 6% during the forecast years of 2022-2032.

This dominance is due to the limited or marginal advantages provided by alternative surgical meshes that are substantially more costly. Synthetic meshes are non-absorbable and offer permanent strengthening of the tissues in the body, but this property renders them prone to difficulties in long-term use.

However, because synthetic meshes meet the fundamental criteria of surgical repairs at a reasonable cost, polypropylene surgical meshes dominate the market, and this trend is projected to continue going forward.

The next leading segment is of composite meshes and biosynthetic meshes, which held 38.1% and 15.5% of the overall market share in 2021, respectively, and are projected to register CAGRs of 5.3% and 4.5% through 2032.

Which Use Case is Estimated to Drive Surgical Mesh Market Growth the Most?

Under the use case segment, the surgical mesh market is segmented into hernia repair, pelvic floor disorder treatment, breast reconstruction, and others.

Hernia repair held 74.1% of the market share in 2021 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast years. Surgical meshes are often referred as hernia mesh devices or abdominal meshes, owing to their use case dominance.

Escalating use of surgical meshes for hernia repair is guided by the benefits of mesh-based repairs over other techniques. Decreased hernia recurrence and increased longevity of repairs are key propellers of mesh based repairs and the surgical mesh industry.

While breast reconstruction holds 3.7% of the market share, it is also expected to accelerate the fastest and register a CAGR of 6.3% over the assessment period. Favoring innovations and studies supporting the use of surgical meshes in breast reconstruction will escalate their demand in the years ahead.
