The American Urological Association, July 2016, has estimated a 3% prevalence rate for kidney stone in all individuals and stated that it affects 12% of the population during their lifetime. Such a high rate of kidney stone drives the market growth in this region.
Europe is expected to be the second largest flexible and semi-rigid ureteroscopy market during the forecast period. The increasing occurrence of kidney cancer and obesity drive the market in this region. According to Cancer Research UK in 2015, there were12,547 new cases of kidney cancer. Thus, the growing cases of kidney cancer facilitate the market growth.
Asia-Pacific was estimated to be the fastest growing region for the global flexible and semi-rigid ureteroscopy market in 2017. The market is expected to witness high growth owing to the rising prevalence of obesity and kidney cancer in this region. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information publication 2016, 121,099 cases of kidney cancer were recorded in Asia in 2012 in which 66.12% patients were males. Such a high prevalence of kidney cancer influences the market growth.
This is expected to provide favorable backgrounds for the market to grow.
The Middle East and Africa accounts for the low share due to lack of awareness, low per capita income, and lack of well-trained healthcare professionals. However, the rising oncology and health care services in hospitals and in the community are expected to influence the market in a positive way.
