Lithotripsy is a medical procedure used for treating kidney stones and stones in other organs, such as gallbladder or liver. Kidney stones usually exit the body through urination, however, sometimes the body cannot pass large stones through urination and may cause bleeding, severe pain and urinary tract infections. Lithotripsy uses sound waves to break large kidney stones into smaller pieces and the most common form of lithotripsy is extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. Although not all the kidney stones can be treated with extracorporeal lithotripsy, its relative safety and other cost cutting factors make it one of the most preferred method for the treatment of kidney stones. Intracorporeal lithotripsy is able to treat all compositions of kidney stones and has a high success rate for ureteral stones without any major complications.
Increasing prevalence of Kidney Stones is the major factor expected to drive the growth of the Lithotripsy Device Market over the forecast period. Lithotripsy, over the years has become the most preferred method for the treatment of kidney Stones. This has largely been due to the advantage of its relative safety, low cost, less recovery time and positive patient outcomes. Additionally, the intracorporeal lithotripsy devices are able to treat all compositions of kidney stones and have a high success rates for ureteral stones without any major complications. On other hand, lack of innovation and the industry’s interest in funding younger technologies are the major factors restraining the growth of the global Lithotripsy device market.
Market Value and Forecast
The global lithotripsy device market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period 2018–2026 and a reach value of US$ 1,095.2 Mn by the end of 2026.
The impact of modernized agriculture remains today, and this is reflected by the epidemic in obesity seen in various regions globally. Obesity rate has rose from roughly 15% in the 1980s to approximately 35% in the 21st century. Based on various research articles on kidney stones, there has been an increase in the prevalence of kidney stones globally. Changing life style pattern is believed to be one of the leading factors increasing the prevalence rate of kidney stones. Diminished fluid and calcium consumption have also contributed to the growing number of kidney stone cases. Various epidemiologic studies have also demonstrated that increased sodium and animal protein intake increases kidney stone risk. Therefore, increasing prevalence of kidney stones is expected to fuel the growth of the lithotripsy devices market.
