Ureteral stents are thin, flexible tubes that restore urine flow through blocked ureters due to various disorders. Innovative interface platforms available in the market for stent case management and patient safety are useful for both patients and physicians. Epidemiological data revealed that the prevalence of kidney stone disease is increasing, which further increases the demand for ureteral stents.

Market Dynamics

The global ureteral stents market is driven by the rising incidence of urological diseases, the rising geriatric population with kidney disorders, and an increasing number of kidney transplants.

The rising number of kidney transplants and the growing geriatric population fuel the growth of the global market.

The increasing number of kidney transplants is expected to drive the market. For instance, according to the Global Observatory on Donation and Transplantation, in 2020, there were over 80,926 kidneys donated, and in 2021 around 98,349 kidneys were donated. The median wait time for an individual's first kidney transplant is around 3.6 years and varies depending on compatibility, health, and availability of organs. According to the report published by NHS Blood and Transplant, which works in collaboration with NHS England, the active waiting list as of 24 February 2022 has 4,658 patients waiting for a kidney, including 98 children. This number is expected to rise. Thus, the growing number of renal transplants and raising concerns related to urological dysfunction have surged the demand for ureteral stents for post-operative convenience.

Furthermore, the growing geriatric population is expected to drive the global ureteral stents market. For instance, as per World Health Organization, the number of people aged 65 is expected to rise from an estimated 1 billion in 2020 to 1.4 billion in 2030; the world's geriatric population will double (2.1 billion) by 2050 and between 2020 and 2050, the persons aged 80 years or older will reach to 426 million, with most of the increase in developing countries. This increase in geriatrics will be reflected by the rise in medical problems such as kidney stones. It requires coordinated care by multiple specialties, with geriatricians and nephrologists playing a vital role in treating these patients.

The high risk of complications post-stent removal will hamper the global market growth.

However, the high risk of complications after the removal of stents is likely to restrain the market. Some complications related to dislocation, blockage, and infection may arise because of the usage of a urinary stent. The patient may also feel an increased urgency or frequency of urination, kidney pain, and blood in the urine. These factors surge the medical research and development departments to develop a better alternative to ureteral stents and can affect the market growth in the forecast period.
