Report Overview

The global nephrostomy devices market size was valued at USD 940.26 million in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2019 to 2026. Increasing cases of kidney stone disorder, a rise in demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures, and increased awareness about the product are a few factors driving the market. According to a study published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), urolithiasis affects around 12% of the world population.

U.S. nephrostomy devices market size

Also, around 13% of men and 7% of women develop a kidney stone in their lifetime. Nephrostomy devices help restore the urine flow through the blocked ureters and return the kidney to the normal function.

The increasing popularity of minimally invasive procedures is also driving the market. Moreover, growing cases of lifestyle-related disorders are likely to contribute to the market development. Improving healthcare infrastructure in the emerging economies is also influencing the global market.

Nephrostomy catheters are extensively used for drainage of a blocked urine collecting system. This blockage causes hydronephrosis, which is operated with the help of nephrostomy catheters. Hence, a rise in the number of hydronephroses is expected to impel the demand for catheters, thereby fueling the nephrostomy devices' market growth.

Increasing cases of bladder, ovarian, and prostate cancers are also estimated to have a positive impact on product demand over the forecast years. Furthermore, growing incidences of post-operative infections in patients with a kidney transplant is another key driver.

Product Insights

Guidewires segment is expected to hold the maximum share of the market in the forecast period owing to the less-invasive nature of the product. The growing elderly population and the prevalence of urinary and bladder disorders are expected to increase the demand for the product, thereby influencing the growth of the segment.

The manufacturers of the guidewire are focusing on collaborations with the healthcare practitioners to increase their customer base and strengthen their presence in the industry. Hence, such initiatives by the manufacturers and the presence of well-established and skilled practitioners in the developed economies are expected to increase the demand for guidewires. Technological advancements in nephrostomy devices, such as the introduction of balloon dilation catheter with original multilayer technology, are anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities to the market.

End-Use Insights

Ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) are likely to witness the fastest CAGR from 2019 to 2026 as they offer more personalized services. Furthermore, the better outcome of results as compared to hospitals and other healthcare settings is also driving the segment.

Infection risks during surgery in ASCs are half than that of the hospitals, which also helps boost the segment growth. Besides, ASCs ensure that patient receives personalized service with the improved patient experience since they do not have the challenge of treating different types of illnesses and disorders.

Global nephrostomy devices market share

However, the hospital segment accounts for the major market share due to the availability of skilled physicians in hospitals and the rise in spending power of consumers. Also, improving healthcare infrastructure in the developing economies and growing adoption of innovative products by physicians are expected to drive the segment.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest share in the past. It is expected to witness substantial growth in the future as well due to favorable reimbursement policies, increasing awareness about the product, availability of highly skilled physicians, and the presence of well-established healthcare facilities in the region. Moreover, the quick adoption of technologically advanced medical products is expected to drive the market in the region. Increasing funding by the government for R&D activities in surgical devices and procedures is also positively affecting the regional market growth.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2019 to 2026 due to increasing cases of kidney disorders, positive government initiatives, and various programs by NGOs to raise awareness about the product. Moreover, the presence of a large number of key companies in China and India is contributing to market growth. Rapidly expanding medical tourism market in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific is further expected to boost the product demand, thereby augmenting the market growth.
