SELLBYVILLE, Delaware: Global Kidney Stones Management Market is poised to cross USD 2 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights.
Kidney stones management market is set to showcase stable growth over the coming years due to rising incidence and repeat occurrence of kidney stone disease generating a need for effective management devices and treatment options. More than 10% of people aged between 20 to 60 years are affected with kidney stone disease globally.
Introduction of advanced treatment options such as ureteroscopy for treating kidney stones should augment the market growth in the coming years. Developments in flexible ureteroscopes have transformed proximal and intrarenal kidney stones treatment. Apart from this, the use of digital ureteroscopes and imaging allow for better quality visualization leading to efficient treatment. Inclination towards minimally invasive surgeries due to advantages offered such as less recovery time and reduced pain trauma has further led to increased popularity of ureteroscopy.
CT scan and ultrasound are most frequently used techniques for accurate diagnosis of kidney stones. CT scan dominated the global kidney stone management devices market in 2017. However, ultrasound segment is likely to witness lucrative growth during forecast period. The field of urology is likely to witness resurgence in the use of ultrasound for diagnosis of kidney stones due to less amount of radiation exposure as compared to CT scans. Moreover, this technology underwent remarkable advancements over past decades with trend likely to continue to make ultrasound even more simplistic over time.
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) held largest share in 2017 in the total kidney stone management devices market. The largest contribution of ESWL is credited to convenience and ability of procedure to treat kidney stones using shock waves making it non-invasive in nature. The ESWL devices are now being developed with new piezoelectric and electromagnetic sources for generating shock waves. Moreover, these devices are now developed with highly efficient targeting sources and in small sizes that occupy less space.
