Global Lithotripsy devices market size is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period from 2018 to 2024.

The industry should witness significant expansion due to increasing prevalence of urolithiasis over the last few years. Urolithiasis affects nearly 12% of total global population once in their lifetime, as per U.S. National Institutes of Health report. Technological advancements and rising number of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy procedures will act as major driver for market size expansion.

Growing elderly population base, will significantly increase demand for lithotripsy devices during the forecast period. As older people are more at risk of suffering from kidney or urinary tract diseases. Low fluid intake and low urine output may result in stone formation among the geriatric population. However, availability of alternative methods for stone removal and associated side-effects of these devices will hamper industry size expansion over the coming years.
