Global Nasal Implants Market - Introduction

Nose is a vital organ, which plays a significant role in respiration and facial appearance. The prominent and central position of the nose, makes it susceptible to injuries, deformities, and fractures. Congenital deformities, septal perforations, malignant destruction, trauma, nasal valve collapse, inflammation of the sinuses, nasal airway obstruction, and nasal polyps leading to difficulty in breathing are major causes for nasal reconstruction, which propels the demand for nasal implants.

Nasal implants are devices inserted in the nasal cavity during a nasal reconstruction surgery, which is used to correct deformities of the nose. Nasal implants are made of different materials including metal, ceramic, and polymers such as silicone, PTFE, and polyamides. Patient nasal anatomy, esthetic qualities, pathological defect, level of injury or deformity, patient perception for adoption of implants are significant factors considered during nasal reconstruction procedures.

Global Nasal Implants Market - Dynamics

Increase in prevalence of nose and sinus disorders, globally, drives market

Rise in prevalence of nose and sinus diseases such as chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, and nasal airway obstruction across the globe is a major factor driving the global nasal implants market. For instance, According to Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), in 2017, approximately 30.0 million adults were affected with chronic rhinosinusitis in the U.S. Deviated septum in chronic rhinosinusitis patients is a major factor propelling the demand for nasal implants. Moreover, nasal airway obstruction (NAO) affects 20 million people in the U.S. each year. All these factors are anticipated to boost the demand for nasal implants in the near future.

Increase in demand for cosmetic procedures propels nasal implants market

Deformities, congenital malformations, injuries, and fractures of the nose are common reasons that boost the demand for augmentation rhinoplasty procedures. Rise in awareness about improving facial appearance among patients is expected to further propel the demand for nasal implants during the forecast period. According to International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), 877,254 rhinoplasty procedures were performed, globally, in 2017. Introduction of novel bioabsorbable implants is another factor driving the nasal implants market. However, complications including high risk of infections post-surgery, movement or dislocation of implant prosthesis, implant protrusion, and nasal height change are likely to restrain the market during the forecast period.
