Nephrology and urology devices are medical devices that are used for the treatment of urinary system and kidney diseases such as chronic kidney diseases (CKD), urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, kidney stone, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and end stage renal disease (ESRD). According to WHO, more than 190 million patients suffer from chronic renal failure and undergo renal dialysis and over 220 million males suffer from diseases associated with prostate glands such as swelling that results in blockage of the flow of urine through the body. This rising incidences of kidney and urology diseases has shifted the inclination of physicians towards use of highly advanced nephrology and urology devices that significantly reduce treatment and recovery time.
The major driving factor for this market is the growing aging population and prevalence of chronic kidney diseases. Innovation in urology devices and an increase in healthcare expenditure will also supplement the growth of this market. However, the high cost associated with these devices hinders the growth of this market. Growing awareness about benefits such as reduced treatment and recovery time among renal disease patients is fuelling the demand for nephrology and urology devices.
