Kidney stones are hard deposits that are usually formed in kidneys and cause pain when passed through ureter and bladder. Apparent symptoms of kidney stone include pain in the back or belly, blood in urine, nausea and vomiting . Kidney stones are formed when urine contains uric acid, oxalate and calcium in larger quantities than normal. Medical conditions including urinary tract infection, hyperparathyroidism and medullary sponge kidney among others further increase the risk of nephrolithiasis. Kidney stones treatment involves medical therapy to remove the hard deposit from body. In addition, drinking enough water and pain relievers offer instant relief from kidney stone problems, however, severe cases require appropriate symptom management and hospital treatment. Availability of several treatment options including ureteroscopy and extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy among others boosts the overall business expansion.

The history of kidney stones industry can be traced back in 1980, with the development of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), that revolutionized kidney stones treatment. ESWL, a non-invasive kidney stones treatment was highly preferred amongst the population in developed countries. Currently, with technological advancements, variety of other treatments such as PCNL and others are also being used extensively. Moreover, industry players such as Siemens and Boston have integrated advanced technology within the computed tomography and ultrasound devices used in diagnosis of kidney stones. Also, kidney stone industry experiences high competition and hence, key industry players take efforts to introduce technology within the devices to sustain industry competition.

Recent years have witnessed tremendous technological advances in ureteroscopy technique used in kidney stones treatment

Advent of flexible ureteroscopes is one of the most significant advances that have revolutionized the treatment of intrarenal and proximal kidney stones. Availability of smaller size flexible scopes offering enhanced capacity to deflect as compared to rigid counterparts should foster its adoption over the forecast period. Advances in ureteroscopes including greater distal tip, active deflection, secondary deflection and narrower shaft diameters should augment the product demand. Furthermore, improvements in image quality due to use of high definition cameras and digital imaging has further led to better visualization of stones and more accurate treatment. Also, other advancements in accessories such as access sheaths and guidewires also play a crucial role in the ureteroscopy procedure. Several such factors associated with ureteroscopy should augment segmental growth over the analysis timeframe.  

However, lack of treatment awareness in underdeveloped economies may hamper the kidney stones management market progress during the analysis timeframe. Also, long-term adverse effects of lithotripsy may limit the business demand.

Diet containing high levels of protein, oxalate, sodium or sugar increases the risk of calcium oxalate stones formation

Type segment of the kidney stones management market covers uric acid, calcium phosphate, calcium oxalate, struvite and cysteine stones. The calcium oxalate segment is anticipated to witness over 4.5% CAGR during the analysis timeline. Calcium oxalate is amongst the commonly occurring kidney stones in the body that occur due to high levels of oxalate in the urine. Also, various risk factors including intake of diet containing high levels of protein, oxalate, sodium or sugar may result in calcium oxalate stones formation . Hence, above mentioned factors leading to kidney stones formation will generate a need for effective diagnosis and treatment options.

X-ray imaging emits relatively low ionizing radiation as compared to computed tomography that should increase its adoption over the coming years

The diagnostics segment is fragmented into abdominal X-ray, computed tomography, ultrasound, abdominal MRI, intravenous pyelography (IVP) and others. Abdominal X-ray accounted for around USD 250 million in 2018 and will witness similar growth over the forecast period. Abdominal X-ray is one of the foremost imaging modalities used for diagnosing kidney stones, since 75% of stones can be detected by this technique. Moreover, ability of this imaging technique in ruling out other causes of pain such as appendicitis, diverticulitis or ovarian cyst in women, should further propel segmental expansion.

Availability of smaller and flexible ureteroscopes with high-definition cameras proves beneficial for kidney stones treatment

Treatment segment of the kidney stones management market is divided into extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), ureteroscopy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and others. The ureteroscopy segment will witness more than 20% revenue share in 2018, as ureteroscopy is commonly used procedure for treatment of kidney stones. This treatment is particularly recommended in case of large size stones in kidney or ureter. Furthermore, improvements in image quality due to use of high definition cameras has led to better visualization and specific treatments. Various advancements in ureteroscopy should thus accelerate the market progress.
