Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
According to a new report by iData Research (http://www.idataresearch.com), the leading global authority in medical device market research, the European urological device market is expected to grow to over €2 billion in 2020. Growth will be fueled by an increase in the number of procedures for the treatment of BPH, nephrostomy, urinary and kidney stones. This market includes TURP devices, laser BPH devices, brachytherapy, urinary catheters, nephrostomy devices, urinary incontinence slings, stone treatment devices, urological endoscopes and erectile dysfunction devices.
Fastest growing market is urological endoscopes which comprise of cystoscopes for endoscopy of the urinary bladder, ureteroscopes for examining the ureter, resectoscopes used in transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and nephroscopes used to examine the kidneys. Growth in this market will be sustained by the range of procedures that require the use of urological endoscopes. It is estimated that over 1.6 million urological procedures will be performed in Europe by 2020.
Players driving the European urological device market are Coloplast, a prominent player in the markets for nephrostomy devices, urinary incontinence slings, stone treatment devices and erectile dysfunction devices as well as, Wellspect HealthCare, Teleflex, C. R. Bard and Olympus.
Other key findings from the European Urological Device Market Report:
The number of TURP procedures continued to overshadow the number of laser BPH procedures in the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia. The procedure is nearly as effective as open prostatectomy, but has a lower risk of serious complications such as blood loss, incontinence and impotence.
Growth of the brachytherapy market in Europe will vary by country, with some experiencing a contraction of the market and others experiencing an expansion. The largest percentage of brachytherapy procedures performed are in Germany. Procedures performed in France, the United Kingdom and Italy were also relatively large, although they all experienced moderate declines in procedural volumes.
The nephrostomy device market is dominated by the percutaneous nephrostomy set and balloon dilator segments. Sustained growth in these two segments will drive overall market expansion through 2020.
