In the global fiber ureteroscope market, the Flexible ureteroscopes segment was valued at USD 1.04 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 2.42 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period (2018-2028). The flexible ureteroscopes segment accounted for 27.0% of total sales in 2018 and will continue to dominate with a share of over 45% by 2028 end. The semi-rigid ureteroscopes segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.8% from 2019-2024 and accounts for about 54% share by 2024 end.
A fiber ureteroscope is a medical device that can be used to visualize the inside of the kidney and urinary tract. It consists of an optical fiber that transmits light from an endoscopy camera, inserted through one or more small incisions in the body wall (percutaneous) into various parts of the upper abdomen including kidneys, bladder, tubes connecting them, etc. Fiber means it does not have any wires attached so it is flexible and easier to use for doctors than rigid devices with multiple cables. It has many advantages over traditional metal-based endoscopic instruments such as less trauma on insertion due to its flexibility; large diameter range between 0.017-0.20" allowing access even if there are strictures present; high image quality due to its small diameter, and lightweight.

The fiber is inserted through one or more small incisions in the body wall (percutaneous) into various parts of the upper abdomen including kidneys, bladder, tubes connecting them, etc with an endoscope camera attached at one tip of it which transmits images back for viewing by a surgeon.
On the basis of type, the global fiber ureteroscope market is segmented into flexible ureteroscopes, semi-rigid ureteroscopes, and rigid ureteroscopes.
Flexible ureteroscopes can be used to diagnose and treat urinary tract disorders, including renal colic. The flexible endoscope is inserted into the patient’s bladder through the urethra; it then enters the ureters (the tubes that transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder) and provides a direct view of these structures in an effort to identify possible obstructions or other abnormalities.
Semi-rigid ureteroscopes are used to examine the inside of the urinary tract. They can provide a clear picture and usually reach farther into the bladder than flexible ureteroscopes. These devices, which measure 12 inches in length and have an outer diameter of about one inch, were first introduced in 1997 for use when examining patients with renal stones or other conditions that might require looking at urine flow from inside the kidney pelvis. However, their popularity soon exploded because they allowed doctors to see tissue better during procedures such as prostate biopsies and endoscopic partial nephrectomy (where only part of a diseased kidney is removed).
The rigid ureteroscope is used to diagnose the cause of an obstruction or stone and remove it if present. The tip has a cutting wire inside which can cut through obstructions that are in the right location. They may also be used for other procedures such as injection therapy, catheterization, and bladder biopsy.
A rigid ureteroscope does not have any bendable parts like flexible scopes do so they cannot enter some areas where there may be fluid build-up or large stones blocking the way.
On the basis of application, the global fiber ureteroscope market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, others.
Fiber ureteroscopes can be applied in hospitals for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. It is employed to obtain direct visualization of the patient's urinary tract, without using contrast media or radiation like x-rays. The procedure is done with minimal invasiveness as it does not require any invasive procedures such as open surgery that may cause complications at later stages of life. This minimally invasive approach also allows physicians to perform endoscopic techniques which were difficult when surgical instruments were used traditionally.
Fiber ureteroscopes are used in clinics to diagnose and manage various benign problems of the urinary tract. Fiber optic technology is employed for effective light transmission that makes it possible to view structures deep within the body, such as the bladder, kidney, and renal pelvis region (groin).
A fiber ureteroscope is an imaging device that produces a clear image of the urethra and bladder. It is used in ambulatory surgical centers to examine patients who have urinary retention, recurrent infection, or other symptoms. Fiber optic endoscopes can be inserted into the natural opening without surgery.
On the basis of region, the global fiber ureteroscope market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is the major consumer of fiber ureteroscope as it accounted for more than 50% share of the market in 2017. The demand from the North American region was driven by a rise in kidney transplant surgery cases across Canada and the USA. The rising population along with increasing awareness about preventive care has led to an increase in therapeutic procedures such as nephrectomy which has resulted in an increased number of surgeries. This will continue to have positive effects on growth over the forecast period during 2028-2032.
The Asia Pacific followed closely behind North America accounting for a 45% Share of the global fiber ureteroscope market revenue share owing to the high adoption of medical equipment and healthcare facilities in this region.
Europe accounted for the third position with a 25% share of global market revenue. The adoption rate is low as compared to other regions owing to strict regulatory norms imposed by EU countries on high-risk or life-threatening procedures, which has resulted in a decline in demand from Europe over the forecast period during 2028-2032.
Latin America followed closely behind Europe accounting for a 15% Share of global fiber ureteroscope market revenue but its growth rate will be higher than North American due to the rising number of medical device manufacturers who are investing more time and money into research and development projects conducted across Latin America that can help them gain competitive advantage in near future.
Middle East & Africa accounts for less than 15% of the global fiber ureteroscope market revenue and will witness a decline in demand over the forecast period.
- Increasing incidence of urological conditions such as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), Kidney Stones, and other diseases in the aging population.
- Increase the adoption rate of minimally invasive procedures for treating urinary tract disorders.
- Increasing the adoption of new technologies such as flexible and semi-rigid ureteroscopes.
