The symptoms of a kidney stone include intense pain in the side and/or groin, nausea, vomiting, blood in urine, and reduced urine output among others. Lack of water inside the body is the leading cause of kidney stones. The urine turns more acidic when the required amount of water needed to dilute the uric acid is not available. Certain medical conditions such as urinary tract infections, Crohn’s disease, renal tubular acidosis, Dent's disease, and hyperparathyroidism can also increase the risk of kidney stones. Several studies have suggested that kidney stones are more common in males. Kidney stones have a high recurrence rate. If preventive steps are not taken, there are high chances the kidney stones will form at regular intervals. Some medications also increase the risk of kidney stones occurrence.
Imaging techniques like ultrasound scan, computerized tomography (CT) scan, and intravenous urogram (IVU) or intravenous pyelogram (IVP) are used for diagnosing kidney stones. In addition, urine tests are performed to check for stone pieces and infections. Blood tests are also performed sometimes to check the functioning of kidneys. Symptom management is the primary focus of kidney stone treatment. Kidney stones that are less than 5 millimeters in diameter are flushed out of the body easily through urine. Treatment is necessary for kidney stones that are larger than 10 millimeters. Sound waves are used to break the kidney stones that are more than 10 millimeters in diameter. Other techniques such as endoscopy or surgery are also used sometimes to remove bigger kidney stones.
Factors such as technological advancements in the field of ureteroscopy, increasing repetition rate of kidney stones, increase in accuracy of kidney stone detection due to the use of imaging techniques like CT scan, development of minimally invasive surgeries, growing consumption of fast food in developing regions, and global warming will be the growth drivers for the global kidney stones management market. Ongoing research and development activities in the field of kidney stone management and increasing awareness regarding kidney stones by implementing campaigns like the World Kidney Day will act as an opportunity for the market players in the kidney stones management market. However, lack of awareness regarding the treatment of kidney stones in some regions and potentially harmful effects of some of the treatment methods will restrict the growth of the global kidney stones management market.
The global kidney stones management market has been segmented into diagnostics, type, treatment, and region. The diagnostics segment has been segmented into Computed Tomography Scan, Abdominal X-ray, Ultrasound, Intravenous Paleography, Abdominal MRI, and Others. Computed tomography scan segment holds the maximum share of the product segment owing to its high accuracy. Based on the type, kidney stones management market has been segmented into calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate, uric acid, struvite, cysteine. Calcium oxalate segment holds the maximum share of the type segment owing to its high incidence rate. Based on the treatment, kidney stones management market has been segmented into extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, ureteroscopy, and others. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy holds the maximum share in the treatment segment due to high accuracy and non-invasive nature of this treatment.
North America will be the leading region during the forecast period. Availability of advanced imaging techniques for detection of kidney stones and increased government funding for increasing awareness regarding kidney stones will drive the market growth in this region. Europe will be the second largest market. The Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid rate over the forecast period. Increasing consumption of fast food will boost the kidney stones management market in this region. Latin America market will grow at a conservative rate during the forecast period.
