Urinary Stones Treatment Devices Market is Expected to Reach $1.98 bn by 2026

The Global Urinary Stones Treatment Devices Market was valued at US$1.48 billion in the year 2018 and is expected to reach US$1.98 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.4%.

Urinary stones are mainly formed due to the inability of an individual to empty the urinary bladder. Due to urine accumulation, the minerals in the concentrated urine start crystalizing leading to the formation of stones. Depending on the location of the stone development it may be classified as a kidney stone, bladder stone or ureteral stone. These stones are diagnosed using, abdominal X-ray, CT scan, MRI scan, ultrasound, etc. During the early days, the stones were removed through surgical procedures. But the development of technologies such as lithotripsy, ureteroscopy, nephrolithotomy had reduced the hurdles in treatment and the removal of urinary stones. Also growing popularity of digital flexible ureteroscopes and rising focus on the development of lasers alternative to conventional once are the factors that contribute to the market growth.

Urolithiasis and Nephrolithiasis are the main conditions that contribute to the development of kidney stones in individuals and chiefly contribute to market growth. Besides, the recurrence of kidney stones in the adult population has also risen to 50% in recent decades due to enormous changes in the lifestyle, poor dietary habits, an increase in obesity, less intake of water and many other associated morbidities. Moreover, as recent research suggested, the probability of recurrence of nephrolithiasis in adolescents or children is about 50% within 3 years of the first occurrence. According to the National Kidney Foundation, over half a million people across the globe visit emergency rooms every year. International Federation of Kidney Foundations and the International Society of Nephrology are taking several initiatives to create awareness among the people regarding the equitable and inexpensive access to treatment options, screening, and diagnosis. This is set to drive the Urinary Treatment Devices market during the forecast period.

Implementation of imaging technologies for scanning urinary stones is expected to drive the growth in the upcoming years. Among diagnoses, the ultrasound segment emphasizes reducing the amount of ionizing radiation delivered to patients during routine imaging. It has also become a mainstay tool in the urologists' armamentarium for the diagnosis and management of nephrolithiasis. New advancements in ultrasound technology had also facilitated its use as a therapeutic and therapy guidance aid. Ultrasound is being used as the first line for the diagnosis of urinary stones for more than 14 years and is set to grow with a healthy CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Other diagnostic techniques such as MRI, intravenous pyelogram, non-contrast CT are said to contribute very little when compared to ultrasound.

Adoption of an alternative way of treatment such as Chinese herbal medicine, Ayurveda, acupressure was minimal during the yesteryears. However, after the rediscovery of the ancient techniques, the options for treating urinary stones with herbal medicine, acupressure, etc. are being researched more and few options have also become successful in minimizing the urinary stones. This is set to hamper the market growth as WHO had already initiated a global level initiative to study and standardize the usage of medicinal plants including that of the folklore medicine.

However modern medicine offers an effective way of treatment. Among them, the lithotripsy segment has a huge demand in the market treating urinary stones and also to sidestep the invasive surgical procedures that were used for stone removal. Lithotripsy uses ultrasonic energy or shock waves focused directly on the stone to identify the place which was previously located with fluoroscopy or ultrasound of the stones. The patient is positioned in such a way so that the stones are targeted precisely. By using this lithotripsy, the complications, hospital stays, costs and recovery time are reduced. The treatment using lithotripsy is expected to fuel market growth until 2026.

Among stone types, the calcium oxalate segment has been reported to propel the urinary stones market till 2018. The formation of calcium oxalate stones is strongly linked to the consumption of foods consisting high amount of oxalate that naturally occurs in plants and animals. This includes beets, black tea, chocolate, nuts, potatoes, and spinach. Also, calcium in the form of supplements for several other bone-related disorders may increase the chances of forming new calcium oxalate stones in the urine. Also, consumption of more leguminous foods such as dried beans, peas, anchovies and drinking of beer may increase the chances of uric acid crystal formation due to the deposition of purines in the kidney.

North American region highly dominates the urinary stones treatment devices market due to extensive prevalence in the occurrence of urinary stones. The favorable conditions for research and development, increased healthcare expenditure and growing utilization of advanced technology for the treatment aspects are evident in this region. The US market holds a market share of about 65% to 35% whereas the Canadian market share is set to increase by around 2% during the forthcoming years due to more immigration from other countries. Further, government initiatives towards strengthening the healthcare infrastructure are accelerating the growth of the urinary stone treatment devices market in this region. Followed by the North American region is the European region, where Germany alone contributes to more than 27% of the total European market growth due to more occurrence of Urolithiasis among German individuals followed by France, the UK, Italy, and Spain. Besides, the Asia Pacific and the Middle East countries are also expected to contribute to the market growth having potential opportunities falling under the kidney stone belt of the world.

Some of the key players in the urinary stones treatment devices market are, Becton, Dickinson and Company, Boston Scientific Corporation, EDAP TMS S.A., Olympus Corporation, Coloplast A/S, Siemens Healthineers, Convergent Laser Technologies, Cook Medical Inc, Direx Group, Dornier MedTech GmbH, Elmed Electronics & Medical Industry & Trade Inc, KARL STORZ GmbH & Co.
