Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL)
is a common non-invasive treatment for kidney stones and ureter stones. The lithotriptor applies external high-intensity acoustic pulse to crush the stone causing minimal damage to the normal tissue. The shock waves break the stones into small fragments. ESWL is currently used by physician worldwide due to characteristics such as non-invasiveness, reduced pain and recovery time and reduced hospital stay. With advancements in health care infrastructure by and availability of technically developed equipment to carry out the procedure are the vital drivers for the extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy market. Moreover, the rising prevalence and incidences of kidney stones and ureter stones are expected to fuel the extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy market in near future. Additionally, the rising prevalence of obesity and patient awareness about the latest technological advancements will be a prime factor that will be contributing to the growth of the market. However, failure of crushing large stones through ESWL is the challenging factor for the extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy market.
