The spread of COVID-19 pandemic across the globe has impacted the market negatively. Increase in number of COVID-19 infections across several countries has resulted in delaying or postponing the non-essential surgical as well as minimally invasive procedures. Also, various companies witnessed a significant dip in their urology division in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, poor supply chain has restricted the operations for several companies.

Technological advances in ureteroscopy technique used in kidney stones treatment to propel the market progression

Recent years have witnessed tremendous technological advances in ureteroscopy technique. The advent of flexible ureteroscopes is one of the most significant advances that have revolutionized the treatment of intrarenal and proximal kidney stones. Flexible scopes are smaller in size offering an enhanced capacity to deflect as compared to rigid counterparts. This is accompanied with developed instrumentation in terms of addition of working channels, greater distal tip, active deflection and secondary deflection, and narrower shaft diameters. These advances have expanded the use of technique to treat other condition such as urothelial carcinoma and ureteral strictures. Furthermore, improvements in image quality owing to the use of digital imaging and high-definition cameras has further led to better visualization of stones and more accurate treatment, thereby augmenting the industry expansion.

Long-term adverse effects of lithotripsy may hamper the kidney stones management market value

Lithotripsy involves use of shock waves to disintegrate kidney stone into small pieces that can easily travel through the urinary tract and pass from the body. This is one of the most commonly used and effective treatment for kidney stones. However, side effects associated with shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) includes infections, bleeding around kidneys, stone recurrence, rise in arterial blood pressure and obstruction of urinary tract attributed to the broken stones. These side effects may hinder the industry size of kidney stones management. Moreover, lithotripsy cause tissue damage that may led to the adverse chronic effects, thereby hampering the industry progression.

Calcium oxalate segment will dominate the market demand

The calcium oxalate segment is set to witness 7.2% growth rate through 2028 timeline. Calcium oxalate is the commonly occurring kidney stones in the body that form due to the high level of oxalate in the urine and lesser intake of water. Also, various risk factors including intake of diet containing high levels of protein, oxalate, sodium or sugar may result in calcium oxalate stones formation.

Advantages of computed tomography increase its adoption

Computed tomography (CT) segment in the kidney stones management market is slated to reach USD 991.5 million by 2028. Computed tomography is widely used imaging modality for kidney stones diagnosis, as it enables three dimensional views of stone. The technology obtains multiple numbers of data points with the aid of radiation source rotating around the patient forming three dimensional images. These detailed images derived using CT scanners enable healthcare professionals to determine accurate treatment for patients, thereby offering better healthcare outcomes thus, driving the segment growth. Additionally, CT scan also provides additional information regarding the type of stones enabling better treatment plan, thereby increasing the product acceptance for kidney stones management, thus augmenting the industry demand.

Benefits offered by ESWL in kidney stones treatment to influence the market revenue

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) segment dominated more than 58.5% of the market share in 2021 and is estimated to attain a CAGR of 6.9% till 2028. ESWL is a minimally invasive technique that uses concentrated shock to distort stones into smaller pieces, that can be easily passed through urine, thus making the process painless, thereby fostering the segment expansion. In addition, these devices have been reduced in size occupying less space with more efficient targeting systems to deliver accurate energy to stones.
