Global Lithotripsy Device Market – Key Driving Factors

The global market for lithotripsy device is being shaped due to several macro as well as microeconomic factors. Some of the major driving factor for the growth of the market are listed below:

  • One of the biggest driving factor for the development of the global lithotripsy device market is growing prevalence of kidney stone disorders. Lithotripsy is a non-invasive procedure that is used for breaking these stones in different organs such as pancreas, gallbladder, liver, and/or kidney.
  • In recent years, due to robust medical policies, a favorable reimbursement structure is in place for people undergoing lithotripsy procedure. This is too is helping to drive the growth of the global market.
