The European urology market included devices for urinary incontinence, benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), erectile dysfunction (ED), brachytherapy, nephrostomy, stone management and urological endoscopes. This market includes the segments for TURP devices, laser BPH devices, brachytherapy, urinary catheters, nephrostomy devices, urinary incontinence slings, stone treatment devices, urological endoscopes and erectile dysfunction devices. While each individual segment is expected to exhibit growth at varying levels, the overall market will continue to increase to meet a rising demand in urological procedures.

As a whole the urological device market is very well established. This limits potential for substantial growth. Although companies continue to provide novel adaptations to their products, the general trend within the market is a slightly declining ASP. However, some segments are an exception to this – lasers (for both BPH and stone management) have recently seen some exciting developments.

Although a highly commoditized market, an increasing global awareness of infection rates is helping to drive a single-use device preference. This results in higher unit sales and an associated growth in market value. Despite this preference, there is an ongoing push within the U.K. to gain acceptance of reusable catheters.

The shift within urological endoscopes from fiber devices to video devices is not complete and therefore the urological endoscope market should continue to exhibit strong growth for the near future. Additionally, the urinary catheter market is expected to exhibit strong growth, particularly hydrophilic catheters.
