Kidney stones are small deposits of mineral & acid salts, for example, calcium crystals, that form in the kidneys. It’s one of the most common urological ailments across the globe.

The most common sign of kidney stones is severe pain in the abdominal side, which is usually associated with nausea. The treatments for it include various pain relievers and drinking a lot of water in order to help it pass through the urinary tract. However, proper clinical procedures or surgeries may also be needed to break up or remove stones, if they are larger.

The rising occurrences of this ailment, available treatments, and various technological developments in minimally invasive methods are the key growth driving factors for the global kidney stones management devices market. Some of the main risk factors for increasing occurrences of the ailment include unhealthy dietary habits, deskbound lifestyle, high rates of obesity, and rising occurrence of hypertension and diabetes.

The kidney stones management devices help provide treatment for kidney stones by breaking down these stones allowing their elimination from the body. Lithotripsy is the most common procedure for kidney stones management. 

There are three major kidney stone management methods namely Intracroporeal Lithotripsy or Uteroscopy, Percutaneous Nephrolithotripsy (PCNL), and Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL). Among these, uteroscopy is gaining popularity and adoption. It is highly preferred over PCNL and ESWL to treat symptomatic kidney stones. Moreover, the advent of flexible endoscopes and associated accessories also spurred the popularity of uteroscopy in the global market.

Geographically, North America, specifically the United States, is the biggest regional kidney stones management devices market. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) and the Middle East & Africa (MEA) regions will also experience the fastest growth in near future. Rising kidney stone disease occurrences and rapid healthcare infrastructure development coupled with the increasing endoscopic surgical procedures adoption are the key drivers of the region.
