Urology Surgery Supplies Market Is Driven by Increasing Number of Urinary Tract Infection Cases


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2019 -- Urology is a branch of medical science used for the treatment of urinary tract disorders in both male and female. Urology helps to diagnose, evaluate, and provide treatment for diseases of organs such as kidney, bladder, and penile. The number of urology surgeries is increasing every year across the world. Postoperative pain, blood clots, fatigue, muscle atrophy, and infections are various complications generally seen in traditional open procedures.

Hence, surgeons prefer minimally invasive techniques (which include single incision procedures and robot-assisted surgeries) over conventional open surgeries. Every year new laparoscopic procedures are developed for urology surgery. The most common urology surgeries are kidney surgery, surgery of ureters, bladder surgery, and prostatic surgery. An urologist needs supplies to perform any urological surgery. Transplantation and kidney surgery are the largest segments of the urology surgery market.

Based on product type, the urology surgery supplies market has been segmented into consumable & accessories and devices. Guidewires, retrieval, and ureteral catheters are some of the devices used in urology surgery. However, the consumables & accessories segment is expected to grow at a faster rate. Most of the supplies are disposable and are for single use only. The supplies include needles, clamps, urine collection bags, and drainage bags. The guidewires and retrieval devices sub-segments are likely to grow at a steady rate. These devices are generally used in urological stenting and kidney stone management procedures. These are used as supportive devices during surgery.

Uretheral catheters are used for several functions such as uretheral dilation, infusion of contrast media, and maintaining drainage during surgery. Hospitals, clinical laboratories and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) are the key end-users of surgical supplies. Increasing number of urinary tract infections and kidney diseases has led to the growth of the global urology surgery supplies market. In underdeveloped countries, inadequate healthcare facilities, infrastructure, and high cost of surgical instruments are the factors restraining the market.
