Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Urethral Dilators Market size is expected to cross USD 593 Million by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of Urethral Dilators was USD 218 Million. The reason behind the growth is impelled by the increasing prevalence of chronic kidney disorders. The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been identified as a major global public health issue, which is majorly caused by stress, and hypertension in all high- and middle-income nations.

Chronic kidney diseases can result in various urological conditions, which involve the use of urethral dilators. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects more than 8% of people globally, and millions of people pass away each year because they lack access to effective treatment.

The rising popularity of minimally invasive procedures are believed to fuel the market growth. The popularity of minimally invasive surgery among patients has grown owing to its advantages such as smaller incisions, less discomfort, and shorter hospital stay.

Urethral dilation is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of bulbar urethral strictures where a permanent catheter is used to drain the bladder, which offers a faster recovery, and minimal scarring.

Urethral Dilators Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Spiking Cases of Prostate Cancer – In some cases, prostate cancer may lead to urethral strictures, which necessitate the use of urology devices including urethral dilators to manage urinary function. For instance, depending on the type of cancer treatment used, there is more than a 5% risk of urethral stricture after prostate cancer therapy. In 2020, there were over 1 million new cases of prostate cancer detected worldwide.
  • Growing Geriatric Population- Aged people may have weakened immune systems which can decrease the capacity of the bladder and weaken the pelvic floor muscles. This can lead to several urological disorders, leading to increased demand for urethral dilators. Lately, the number of individuals over 65 across the globe is more than 610 million, or roughly 8% of the population.


  • Availability of Alternative Treatment Options – There are many other treatment options such as laser therapies, behavioral therapy, medication, surgical options for rUTI management, and endoscopic or percutaneous are easily available for the treatment of urological condition. This, as a result, limits the adoption of urethral dilators.
  • Stringent Regulatory Standards
  • Lack of Awareness

Urethral Dilators Segmentation

Usage (Reusable, Disposable)

The disposable segment is estimated to gain a robust market share of 62% in the coming years owing to the benefits offered. Disposable urethral dilators are designed for single use with consistent quality standards. They don’t require any sterilization which reduces the risk of cross-contamination between patients. In addition, these dilators are cost-effective as compared to reusable dilators and can be easily disposed of.

Application (Meatal Stenosis, Urethral Stricture, Kidney Stone Removal)

The urethral stricture segment in the urethral dilators market is set to garner a notable share of 51% shortly on the account of growing surgical procedures. Surgical procedures involve the repeated use of catheters which may cause irritation or swelling and scar tissue formation, which can restrict the urethra and cause urine to back up in the urinary tract, resulting in urethral stricture. This can be treated by using the urethral dilation technique where a doctor puts a very little wire into the bladder through the urethra by stretching the urethra's sidewalls. Every year, more than 300 million major surgical procedures are carried out worldwide.
