Key Market Trends

Urinary Tract Infection Segment is Expected to Exibhit a Significant Growth Rate in the Ureteral Stent Market

  • The urinary tract infection segment is expected to exhibit significant growth in the ureteral stents market, owing to a higher incidence of urinary tract infection and higher adoption of ureteral stents. According to the study published in 2018 by Urology, around 92,000 stents are placed every year in the United States.
  • Furthermore, according to the Therapeutics Advances in Urology, 2019, the incidence of urinary tract infection in adult women was around 50%- 60% globally. As the age increases, the risk of acquiring the urinary tract infection is at par and the prevalence rate is almost double in 65 years and above aged women than the rate in the overall population of the female. Hence, these factors are expected to impact positively on the ureteral stents market in this segment.

Furthermore, almost 37 million population of the United States are affected by CKD and almost 90% of the population is unaware of the situation. Furthermore, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, chronic kidney disease is commonly found in the older population. The prevalence rate of chronic kidney disease is approximately 38% in the population of 65 years and above. Thus, the rising geriatric population and higher prevalence of chronic kidney disease are expected to be major contributors in the ureteral stents market for this region.
