DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Japan Market Report for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Repair 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.
The primary driver of growth for this device market is an increase in procedure numbers, driven by an aging female demographic. However, in 2012 there was a sharp decline in procedures triggered by reports of negative and serious side effects including numerous litigations surrounding the vaginal mesh market. The majority of the concern was about transvaginal mesh. Overall, the combination of these factors has led to a stable market overall with a small growth in unit sales expected over the forecast period.
The market has begun and is expected to continue a substantial shift from transvaginal mesh to sacrocolpopexy mesh. While transvaginal mesh sales currently comprise the majority of the market, their dominance will decrease as physicians move towards sacrocolpopexy mesh at increasing rates. While the FDA warnings issued in 2011 had the greatest effect on the United States market, the Japanese market was also impacted. Modifications to the mesh, extra clinical trials to prove safety and pre-emptive marketing is helping to clarify the safety and health risks associated with mesh to curb the decline in procedures.
Even though the transvaginal mesh market is declining, a smaller but solid demand for this product will remain over the forecast period. ASPs for both types of mesh have been relatively stable, with a slight decline on average over the past few years. Changes in the market due to companies choosing to leave the market, notably Johnson & Johnson's transvaginal mesh products, have created a competitive market environment as market share is reallocated. Combined with recovering unit sales, there is a high incentive to increase affordability and help procedure numbers recover through stable prices.
