Kidney Stones Management Device Market: Global Share, Size, Growth, Trends & Outlook ( 2022 – 2032 )
Stone formation within the kidney is known as urolithiasis and is the most frequent, common and painful urological disease or disorder.
The primary causes behind stone development can be associated with decreased urine volume and increased excretion of stone-forming substances such as oxalate, calcium, cysteine, urate, phosphate, and xanthine. Minerals and acid salts crystallize to form stone-like structures within the organ itself or parts of the urinary tract. It may also be caused due to less water consumption, obesity, weight loss surgery, eating food that contains excess of salt or sugar also.
Kidney stone management devices with treatments or surgeries aid in providing effective treatment for urolithiasis by breaking down the stones and assisting in their removal from the body.
The devices are available in a wide range of stone retrieval tools which are used for various purposes. These devices or tools are tube-like structures are attached to cameras that visualize the position of stones within a ureter.
The global kidney stones management devices market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 4-8% over the period of next 5 years.
The growth of this market is attributed towards major pertaining factors including; the increasing prevalence and recurrence of kidney stones across the globe mostly among the old population, the increasing research and development activities in the field of urology, the growing number of supportive reimbursement policies from both the government and non-government organizations in different regions, the emergence of minimally invasive procedures for removing kidney stones combined with its growing demand among patients and the increasing popularity of digital flexible ureteroscope etc.
Additionally, a plethora of public and non-profit private organizations are seen to be majorly emphasizing on spreading awareness regarding the treatment and prevention of kidney-related ailments by conducting health related activities in the form of online quizzes, expert consultation, free screenings and others. Along with that, the increasing implementation of various initiatives in the form of physician education, and clinical training and others are also being rapidly witnessed. Such initiatives and training programs are expected to fuel the adoption of kidney stones management device, which in turn, will aid in the growth of the market progressively.
Moreover, private and public hospitals and clinics are allocating huge funds on the research and development activities for treatment of several kidney diseases like kidney stones. Major technological progress and innovative product launches have enabled therapy optimization and better management of the stones recently. With developments in minimally invasive procedures, advancement in the field of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) and ureteroscopy, the emergence of flexible ureteroscopes and enhanced image quality resulting from high definition cameras as well as digital imaging, the market for kidney stones management device market is expected to flourish stupendously in the near future.
Furthermore, other factors such as the treatment methods for kidney stone getting more simple and easy, the rising cases of urolithiasis and malnutrition, the growing geriatric population worldwide, the increasing adoption of unhealthy eating habits among population and the growth in global warming further contribute in the growth of this market considerably.
However, one restraining factor to the market growth is the side effects associated with the kidney stone therapeutic procedures such as with that of lithotripsy.
