Hernia Repair Devices Market Overview 2013 - 2019

The global hernia repair devices market was valued at USD 3,578.21 million in 2012 and is estimated to reach a market worth USD 5,936.43 million in 2019at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2013 to 2019.

Hernia is one of the major health concerns worldwide. Occurrence of hernia is characterized by the protrusion or bulging of internal organ or tissues through weak muscle areasand is classified on the basis of its anatomical location of occurrence. The different types of hernia include inguinal (inner groin), umbilical (belly button), hiatal (upper stomach), femoral (outer groin) and incisional hernia. Of these inguinal hernia is the most common type of hernia accounting for around 80% of the total hernia cases worldwide. This occurs most commonly in men majorly due to the observed weakness in this area. The exact cause of hernia is unknown but the most prominent risk factors which contribute in the development of hernia are old age and obesity. These factors feature weakened muscles and pressure in the abdomen. Other factors contributing towards development of hernia are poor nutrition, smoking, change in lifestyle habits, and family history.

Escalation in hernia prevalence directly influences the need and demand for hernia repair devices globally.Consistent rise in geriatric population, increasing adoption of tension free hernia repair procedures, rise in preference for technologically advanced biologic mesh and consistent elevation in obesity epidemic are some of the major factors positively impacting the growth and acceptance of hernia repair devices globally. However, inconsistent reimbursement policies coupled with high costs involved in the development of effective hernia repair devices are expected to hamper the growth and development of hernia repair devices market.

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 recovery and negligible post-operative pain. Currently, there has been an increased preference for tension free repair procedures such as laparoscopic tension free and tension free mesh technique majorly due to its minimal invasive nature followed by less susceptibility to infection compared to conventional incisional repair procedures. Owing to aforesaid factors, tension free repair procedures are anticipated to record a steady growth rate during the forecast period from 2013 to 2019.

At the regional level, North America was the largest market in 2012 for hernia repair devices market followed by the European Region. Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at a highest CAGR of over 8% from 2013 to 2019. This is majorly due to large and expanding population base, increased participation of the respective governments in healthcare sector and rising disposable incomes of the population. In addition, high prevalence of hernia in low or middle income countries compared to high income countries due to undiagnosed and untreated hernia cases will further propel growth and development of hernia repair devices market.

The hernia repair devices market is characterized by the presence of well-established as well as new players solely operating in this market. The major companies competing in this market are Covidien Plc, Ethicon, Inc., C.R.Bard, Inc., Cook Medical, Inc. and Stryker Corporation.

Pre-Owned Medical Devices Market Trends 2013 -2019

The global pre-owned medical devices market was valued at USD 2.4 billion in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.6% from 2013 to 2019, to reach an estimated value of USD 4.9 billion in 2019.

Pre-Owned medical devices are defined as the devices that were owned earlier by any healthcare institution and that are now subject to sale or repurchase after refurbishment. 'Refurbishment' is defined as restoration of the device to its original specifications including replacement of basic wear parts and aesthetic changes to a complete end-to-end refurbishment. The pre-owned medical devices market study is thus, of interest to the refurbishment service providers.

Globally, the pre-owned CT Machines accounts for a high growth market segment - expected to grow at a CAGR of over 10% during the forecast period. The new CT machines are comparatively expensive; typically the demand for refurbished pre-owned medical devices is price-elastic i.e. directly proportional to the price of the new medical devices. Hence, due to the high price of the new CT machines, the demand for the refurbished pre-owned CT machines is expected to be high during the forecast period. Currently, in terms of value, the refurbished pre-owned CT machines market accounts for the second largest segments in the refurbished pre-owned medical devices market.

Considering the lucrativeness of the refurbished pre-owned CT machines market, many OEMs have included refurbishing of pre-owned CT machines in their proprietary, organized and accredited programs. Due to this factor, although third-party refurbishers do exist, the OEMs have garnered a leading market share of the refurbished pre-owned CT machines market. The trade terms differ accordingly, as the OEMs offer discounts of only ~20% on refurbished pre-owned CT machines, whilst third-party refurbishers offer ~40% (or higher) discounts on refurbished pre-owned CT machines. The OEMs command premium price of refurbished pre-owned CT machines that is attributable to the branded service/solutions or accredited programs. Due to all afore-mentioned factors, the refurbishment business of pre-owned CT machines is a high-margin business for the OEMs.
Currently, in terms of geography, North America represents the largest market for refurbished pre-owned medical devices; the U.S. market has garnered a majority market share as the refurbishment of pre-owned medical devices originated in the U.S. There exists favorable perception and buying behavior of customer entities such as public hospitals, large private hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centers. A host of other factors contributing to the high market share of the U.S. include downturn in the economy, favorable supply-side infrastructure with large number of all categories of market participants - OEMs, third-party and standalone refurbishers.

The RoW market represents the smallest market for refurbished pre-owned medical devices (as compared to other geographical markets). Many of the countries in the RoW region have banned or discouraged the usage of refurbished pre-owned medical devices. None of the supply-side or the demand-side are developed due to such binding regulatory restraints. Due to this factor, the market growth rate is also expected to be the least (as compared to other geographical markets) during the forecast period.
The global (organized) market for pre-owned medical devices is dominated by the OEMs. The organized market for pre-owned medical devices is a consolidated market with OEMs namely GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare and Siemens Healthcare garnering leading market share. There exists high entry-barrier for refurbishers in the organized market. The unorganized market for pre-owned medical devices is dominated by third-party and stand-alone refurbishers.

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) Market Trends 2013 - 2019

The global NIPT market was valued at USD 0.22 billion in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 37.6% from 2013 to 2019, to reach an estimated value of USD 3.62 billion in 2019.

The market for non-invasive prenatal testing is evolving rapidly due the advantages it offers over the conventional prenatal screening and diagnostic methods such as maternal serum screening, nuchal translucency (NT) scan, amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS). These advantages include safety, accuracy, and no risk of miscarriage. An NIPT is a non-invasive genetic screening test for the common chromosomal abnormalities (trisomy 21, trisomy 18, trisomy 13, monosomy X, etc.) observed in the fetuses of high risk pregnant women (above the age of 35 years). Owing to its ability to detect the presence of chromosomal abnormalities in fetuses of pregnant women as early as 9 to 10 weeks of gestation, the market for non-invasive prenatal testing is witnessing a rapid increase in demand from all parts of the world.

MaterniT21 PLUS, verifi, Harmony, Panorama, NIFTY, PrenaTest and BambniTest are the commercially available NIPTs in the market which are based on the direct analysis of cell-free fetal DNA in the maternal blood. In 2012, MaterniT21 (a proprietary product of Sequenom, Inc.) accounted for the largest share (36.6%) of the global NIPT market in terms of revenue, owing to the fact that it was the first mover in the market place. During the forecast period 2013 to 2019, it is likely to lose some of its share due to increasing market penetration by other aforementioned NIPTs such as Panorama and verifi.

High incidence rate of babies born with certain type of chromosomal abnormalities, growing trend of child bearing at advanced maternal age and enhanced popularity of NIPT among gynecologists and high risk pregnant women are some of the major factors anticipated to drive growth of the NIPT market during the forecast period. Some of the most commonly detected chromosomal aneuploidies include Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome, Patau syndrome and monosomy X. On the other hand, ethical and regulatory hurdles are expected to pose significant challenges before the NIPT market to grow. Various professional committees across the world believe that the implementation of NIPT and the subsequent rise in uptake of prenatal testing is likely to increase the incidence of abortions. Therefore, professional groups such as The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), International Society for Prenatal Diagnosis and The Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology have set up guidelines that limit the use of non-invasive prenatal testing only to pregnant women at high risk of chromosomal aneuploidies.

Geographically, North America was the largest regional market in 2012 with a market share of 64.5% of the total revenue generated globally, followed by Europe. Almost every company operating in this market is adopting the same business model of marketing their tests via alliances with hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and physician offices. The increasing penetration by test developers in European, Asia-Pacific and Middle-East countries indicates promising growth in the near future in these markets. Sequenom, Inc., Verinata Health, Inc. (now a part of Illumina, Inc.), Ariosa Diagnostics, Natera, Inc., BGI Health, LifeCodexx and Berry Genomics are the companies engaged in providing non-invasive prenatal tests worldwide.
