The Global Urology Laser Market size is expected to reach $1.3 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period. Urology laser surgical equipment is used for incision and resection of soft tissue and tumor ablation. Laser therapy is a medical treatment that utilizes a strong light beam to cut, burn, or destroy tissue. In many fields of medical treatment, therapeutic lasers can be used. The oldest known medical lasers have been used in ophthalmology and dermatology. A medical laser is a non-invasive and efficient source of light for tissue treatment that offers fast healing without scarring or discoloration.

The accelerated need for medical lasers to treat multiple diseases and the growing need for non-invasive treatments are among the factors that drive growth in the medical lasers industry. The extensive demand in developing countries for aesthetic laser procedures is expected to raise the market share of medical laser. The use of lasers in the treatment of urolithiasis, urinary strictures, and bladder tumors has made it safe to treat older patients with several comorbidities without further need to change the treatment with anticoagulant medications. Furthermore, laser procedures are less invasive, minimize hospitalization time and allow for a shorter time for bladder catheterization, sometimes even removing the need for bladder catheterization.

More stable performance and a lower number of reoperations are also characterized by these procedures. There are also expectations that laser equipment will become a necessary and indispensable asset in all urology wards due to increased competition among laser manufacturers, decreased purchase and maintenance expenses, as well as increased operational safety.

To order to maintain its market position, factors such as increased availability of innovative portable laser surgical devices and versatility and effectiveness play an important role in the segment of portable laser surgical devices. In addition, market studies on laser devices for urology discuss factors such as the increasing prevalence of urological disorders, product and technology launches, and the growing value chain M&A. Nonetheless, higher costs associated with urological surgical procedures, product recalls, complications associated with laser surgical devices can impede the proliferation of laser technologies in the medical industry.
