The market is majorly being driven by increasing prevalence of urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women, surging geriatric population, and rising prevalence of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) procedures.
On the basis of product, the market has been categorized into consumables and accessories, urology endoscopes, endovision systems, and peripheral instruments. The consumables and accessories category is predicted to lead the urology surgical instrument market, both in terms of size and growth. The category contributed a 45.3% share in the global market in 2017 and is expected to progress at a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period. This leading position is mainly attributable to the high use of guidewires, stone basket, stents, catheters and dilator sets in urology surgery.
Consumables and accessories are further classified into guidewires, stone basket/retrieval device and extractor, catheter, stent, biopsy device, fluid flushing device, connecting tube, clamp, overtube, and distal attachment, dilator set and ureteral access sheath, drainage bag, surgical dissectors, needle forceps and needle holders, and other products. Among these, guidewires led the urology surgical consumables and accessories market and generated a revenue of $818.6 million in 2017. This can be ascribed to its features like smooth tracking, easy advancement, maximum maneuverability, and precise control during surgical procedures. This adds to the growth of the urology surgical instrument market, globally.
