Kidney stones, also known as renal calculi, are solid crystal masses that develop in one or both the kidneys due to the accumulation of dissolved minerals. Kidney stones can originate in kidneys or anywhere along the urinary tract, which includes: kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Kidney stones are predominantly made up of calcium oxalate; however, they may also be composed of numerous other compounds like uric acid, struvite, and cystine among others. Kidneys filter the blood by removing waste products and passing them as urine. Kidney stones form as tiny crystals and may grow to an inch or bigger over time. The presence of kidney stones in the urinary tract is known as Urolithiasis, while the presence of stones in the ureter is referred to as ureterolithiasis. Small kidney stones may pass through the urinary tract unnoticed. However, bigger kidney stones cause severe pain once they fall into the ureter.
There are five types of kidney stones: calcium oxalate stones, calcium phosphate stones, uric acid stones, struvite stones, and cystine stones. Kidney stones made up of calcium are the most common type of kidney stones. The calcium stones are often composed of calcium oxalates. These stones could also be composed of calcium phosphate or maleate. Calcium oxalate stones are formed when the urine has a low pH (acidic). High calcium and oxalate diet could be a reason for the formation of calcium oxalate stones; however, it is not the only reason. Calcium phosphate stones are the less common type of calcium stones. Calcium phosphate stones are formed when the urine has a high pH (alkaline). Constant acidic urine leads to the formation of uric acid stones. A diet with a high amount of animal proteins and purines-substances (found predominantly in fish, organ meats, and shellfish) is a major reason for acidic urine. Struvite stones are found predominantly in women with urinary tract infections (UTIs). These stones are formed due to kidney infections. Struvite stones can lead to urinary obstruction. Cystine stones are one of the rarest types of kidney stones. They occur in people with genetic disorder cystinuria.
Kidney stones can affect people of all age groups; however, they are predominantly found in people between the ages of 20 and 40. According to kidney.org, 1 in 10 people will be diagnosed with kidney stones at some time in their lives. Diet and climate are the most important factors that lead to the formation of kidney stones. Obesity is a major risk factor. Increased consumption of fast food that contains a high volume of fructose corn syrup is responsible for the growing incidence of kidney stones. People living in hot, dry, and arid climates are at higher risk of getting 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 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 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 treatment, kidney stones management market has been segmented into extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, ureteroscopy, and others.
North America will be the leading region during the forecast period. Availability of the 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 moderate rate during the forecast period. The Middle East and Africa are expected to experience appreciable growth in the near future.
Some of the key players in the kidney stones management market include Coloplast Group, Bard Medical Division, Boston Scientific Corporation, Allengers Medical Systems, Cook Medical, Lumenis Ltd., Electro Medical Systems, Storz Medical AG, Richard Wolf GmbH, and Dornier Medtech, among others.
