In addition, technological innovation in urology products are providing an immense opportunity for the manufacturer to produce technologically advanced ureteral stents. For instance, in June 2018, HydrUStent has developed the Hydrustent Biodegradable Ureteral Stent from its patented material, which prevents the need for a second surgery for stent removal, and also prevents bacterial colonization and biofilm formation which leads to infection.

Moreover, increasing prevalence of urological and kidney related disorders is expected to lead to high demand for ureteral stents over the forecast period. For instance, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), October 2018, an estimated 1 to 19% of the population in India is suffering from urolithiasis.

Furthermore, increasing demand for kidney transplant procedures is expected to contribute to the market value. For instance, according to the Global Observatory on Donation and Transplantation, 2016, around 89,823 kidney transplant surgeries were performed worldwide in 2016, which was an increase by 6.5% from 2015. Thus, the increasing number of renal transplants and growing concerns related to urological dysfunctioning has increased demand for ureteral stents for post-operative convenience.

Acquisitions by key players in order to enhance their product portfolios is also facilitating growth of the global ureteral stents market. For instance, in June 2019, Merit Medical Systems, Inc. acquired Brightwater Medical, Inc., to align Merit’s Resolve drainage catheter portfolio with the Brightwater’s ConvertX biliary stent system, and enhance the company’s sales outside the U.S.
