Industry Trends

In the U.S. urology market, the demand side of the market continues to undergo consolidation, with hospitals acquiring outpatient facilities and expanding the reach of the group purchasing organizations (GPOs), coupled with the reimbursement cuts across the urology space, average selling prices are expected to remain under significant pressure, negatively impacting the future growth of the market.

Since NeoTract launched UroLift®, an implant for the treatment of BPH, in the U.S. in 2013 and in Europe in 2010, the device has been rapidly adopted by urologists, following the trend from other regions where it is available, such as Canada, Australia and more. The UroLift® procedure is minimally invasive and can be performed in a relatively short amount of time, making it an attractive treatment option for BPH. In 2017, NeoTract was acquired by Teleflex, which is expected to further drive adoption of UroLift® by leveraging the large presence and sales distribution network of Teleflex.

In Europe, the adverse effects of urinary incontinence slings have been up for discussion since 2008, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released warnings regarding the use of surgical mesh for stress urinary incontinence. Since then, the market for urinary incontinence slings has been on the decline. In 2018, the National Health Service (NHS) suspended the use of female urinary
incontinence slings in NHS hospitals in the United Kingdom. This has had negative impacts on the overall urinary incontinence sling market.

In the U.S. urology market, the leading competitor is Boston Scientific. The company holds the leading positions in the stone management device market, BPH treatment device market, and erectile dysfunction market. BARD is the second-leading competitor. The company also holds the leading position in the urinary incontinence device market, solely attributed to its dominant position in the urinary catheter market. Coloplast was the third-leading competitor. The company currently stands in the second-leading positions in the urinary incontinence device market and erectile dysfunction device market.

Statistics and Procedure Trends

In the urology market in the United States, the largest segment was prostate cancer treatment, which accounted for approximately 58% of
the total procedure volume. The relatively large size of this segment is attributed to the high prevalence rate of prostate cancer and the various therapies available for treatment. The second-largest segment was stone management, which accounted for approximately 20% of the total procedure volume. Growth of this segment will primarily be driven by ureteral stent placement procedures and transurethral procedures.

In 2018, over 2.7 million urological procedures were performed in Europe, a small increase from the previous year. With a procedural share of over 45%, stone management procedures accounted for the largest portion of all procedure types discussed. This was followed by prostate cancer, interventional BPH procedures and nephrostomy procedures.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia is one of the most common diseases for men, especially for men older than age 50. The prevalence of BPH increases with age, starting at 8% in men between ages 31 to 40, to 60% at the age of 60 and 80% over the age of 80.

A study published in The Canadian Journal of Urology reported that 23% of diagnoses seen by urologists in urologic practices are BPH diagnoses, making it the second most common diagnosis after UTIs. There have been no clear patterns regarding age-adjusted relative BPH risk and ethnicity, as epidemiological studies have reported inconsistent results.

There are over 436,128 urological procedures being performed in Japan annually. Prostate cancer procedures represented 42.5% of the total number of procedures performed that year, followed by BPH procedures, which accounted for 34.5%. Stone treatment procedures accounted for 23% of the market.
