Stone Removal Basket Market Size & Trends

The global stone removal basket market size was valued at USD 589.3 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.6% from 2023 to 2030. This growth can be attributed to the high incidence of nephrolithiasis, the growing demand for minimally invasive procedures, and technological advancements. Elderly people are at a higher risk of getting affected by nephrolithiasis. The surge in the geriatric population globally further creates opportunities for the market. Globally, a significant number of people suffer from nephrolithiasis. For instance, according to research published by the National Institute of Health in 2021, over 12% of the world's population suffers from nephrolithiasis. The rise in obesity rates, unhealthy eating habits, and a lack of exercise are some major factors contributing to the disease burden of nephrolithiasis. A significant number of people leading an unhealthy lifestyle worldwide is expected to increase the burden of nephrolithiasis and support the market growth of stone removal baskets.

U.S. stone removal basket market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

There is a wide adoption of minimally invasive procedures in hospitals; moreover, patients usually prefer minimally invasive procedures as they lead to faster healing of the wounds. Kidney stone removal surgery is a minimally invasive surgery. Moreover, there are also a significant number of health insurance plans that provide coverage for kidney stone removal surgery. The high demand for minimally invasive procedures and reimbursement for this type of surgery is expected to promote the market for stone removal baskets.

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have affected the demand for stone removal baskets, as during the pandemic the majority of elective surgeries were postponed as physicians gave preference to COVID-19-infected patients. In the post-pandemic period, this scenario is changing as many elective surgeries have resumed. For instance, as per the research published by the NCBI in August 2022, the post-pandemic waiting list for elective surgeries in England accounted for 2.3 million. A high number of people on the waiting list for surgeries is expected to improve the surgeries in the post-pandemic period and thus support the market growth in this period.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is segmented into nitinol stone retrieval basket and stainless steel stone retrieval basket. The nitinol stone retrieval basket segment led the market with the highest revenue share of 52.6% in 2022. In stone removal surgeries, it is essential to navigate in particular areas without causing any discomfort to the patient. Nitinol stone retrieval baskets are flexible and can also endure high amounts of strain. These baskets are much safer and less damaging as compared to other baskets. These baskets also effectively lead to the fragmentation and extraction of the stone. These factors are supporting the demand for nitinol stone retrieval baskets in the market. 

The stainless steel stone retrieval basket segment is anticipated to witness a growth rate of 3.8% CAGR over the forecast period. Stainless steel stone retrieval basket are used to remove and entrap renal calculi using a rigid endoscope. They have better grasping efficiency and can also be used to remove large stones. These types of baskets are usually less expensive than those made of nitinol, owing to which the demand for stainless steel stone retrieval baskets is expected to rise with the fastest growth over the forecast. 

Shape Insights

Based on shape, the market is segmented into spherical , paired wire, helical. The helical shape segment led the market with the highest revenue share of 52.9% in 2022. The helical shaped stone retrieval basket helps in securing the grasp of calculi and small stone fragments. This type of basket is designed to open and retain its shape within the ureter. This improves its flexibility during the surgery. All the above mentioned factors promote the demand for helical shape stone retrieval baskets in the market. 

The spherical-shaped stone retrieval basket segment is anticipated to witness a growth of 3.8% over the forecast period. This type of basket is usually used in lithotripsy where the size of the stone is so large that it cannot be passed through the ureter. A spherically shaped basket prevents stone migration and retropulsion, and it also grabs and collects stone fragments during lithotripsy. The high number of people suffering from large stones is expected to boost demand for spherical-shaped stone retrieval baskets and thus support the segment market's growth.

Number Of Wires Insights

Based on number of wires, the market is segmented into 4 wire basket, 6 wire basket and 8 wire basket. The 4-wire basket segment led the market with the highest revenue share of 43.6% in 2022. The 4 wire basket is widely used by the surgeons. This type of basket helps in the effective repositioning and capturing of stones in the kidney. It also assists in effective retrieval in the calyx and facilitates stone and fragment retention during retrieval. These factors are promoting the demand for 4-wire stone retrieval basket in the market. 

The 6 wire basket stone retrieval basket segment is anticipated to witness a growth of 4.0% over the forecast period. This type of basket is designed to remove several small fragments of stone in one pass and is also used to prevent inadvertent stone escape. This type of basket also saves time when the patient has multiple small stones in the kidney. This type of wire also has a high radial dilation force. All the aforementioned factors support the demand for 6-wire basket in the market, hence promoting its growth in the market.

Tip Insights

Based on tip, the market is segmented into tipless and with tip. The tipless segment led the market with the highest revenue share of 62.9% in 2022. The tipless stone retrieval basket helps in the atraumatic retrieval of stones in the calcyes and ureter. This type of basket facilitates caliceal calculi extraction during the ureteroscopy, and, with high safety and efficacy, extracts stones during the surgery. These factors are promoting the demand for tipless stone retrieval basket in the market. 

The with tip segment is anticipated to witness a growth of 3.2% over the forecast period. This type of basket has radial strength and rigidity, which effectively removes the stone from the ureter during the surgery. However, this type of basket can cause trauma to the patient during surgery. Due to these reasons, the adoption of tipped baskets is relatively lower than that of tipless baskets. This is expected to slow the growth of the segment market across the forecast period. 

End User Insights

Hospitals dominated the market in 2022, with a share of 32.8%. This segment's growth is mostly due to an increase in the number of patients suffering from various urological diseases, which has resulted in an increase in surgical treatments. Hospitals see a substantially higher inflow of patients for urological procedures or other treatments than other healthcare settings, owing to the simplicity of managing any emergencies that may develop during surgical procedures and the availability of a wide range of treatment alternatives. As a result, the hospital segment is likely to be driven by the aforementioned variables.

Global stone removal basket market share and size, 2022

The ambulatory surgical centers segment is expected to expand at a rate of 3.5% CAGR across the forecast. This high share is attributable to the increase in the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries in outpatient facilities and favorable reimbursement policies in these centers. The segment is also expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period as there is a growing demand for cost-effective and convenient healthcare services, which has led to an increase in the number of these facilities. These facilities offer medical care that does not require overnight hospitalization, making them a more affordable option for many patients.

Regional Insight

North America dominated the stone removal basket market with the highest share of 39.2% in 2022. The developed healthcare infrastructure in North America, increasing burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and along with the ageing population in region are the major factors supporting the regional market growth. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2021, CKD is more common in those aged 65 and up (38%) than in those aged 18-44 years (6%), or 45-64 years (4%). Furthermore, CKD is significantly more common in women (14%) than in males (12%), which is predicted to boost the region's growth in the near future.

Stone Removal Basket Market Trends by Region, 2023 - 2030

The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth of 3.9% CAGR over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030 owing to various factors such as the growing geriatric population, increasing prevalence of CKD, and the rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries in the region. In addition, the increasing healthcare expenditure by governments, favorable reimbursements for the renal surgeries along with a surge in disposable incomes, has further promoted the growth of the regional market.
