Renal Function Test Market: Global Industry Analysis (2012 - 2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017 - 2026)

Kidneys are one of the most vital organs in the human body, and act as blood filters by reabsorbing essential elements and discarding water-soluble waste products. The renal function tests are used for diagnosing any defect in functions of kidney. Symptoms that indicate kidney-related problems include blood in urine, high blood pressure, frequent urges to urinate, swelling in hands & feet on the back of fluid build-up in the body, and difficulty in urination. Some commonly used products in renal function tests include dipsticks, reagents, and disposables.

Technological Advancements providing Early Disease Identification & Diagnosis of Specific Conditions

Prevalence of chronic kidney disease is witnessing a surge globally on the back of unhealthy lifestyle of people. This has prompted clinicians in using renal function tests in order to diagnose various kidney-related diseases. Technological advancements in the renal function tests has provided early disease identification, and diagnosis of specific conditions. Some of these advancements include computer-assisted interpretation, usage of automated analyzers, and advanced parameter estimation, which have offered numerous benefits such as efficient parameter monitoring, automatic variable adjustment, enabling real-time automation, and greater process control. These tools also deliver analysis of a wide variety of samples, providing rapid results, thereby reflecting their potential applications in emergency wards, outpatient clinics and hospitals in the foreseeable future.

Private and public healthcare organizations are increasingly taking initiatives and providing recommendations, in a bid to attain efficient management of chronic kidney disease. For example – the CDC has launched the Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Initiative, which is dedicated to developing exhaustive public strategies and promoting awareness for curbing down the incidences of CKD. Initiatives such as this encourage clinicians in using early diagnostic procedures such as renal function test, which in turn influences expansion of the market. According to a recently compiled report of Future Market Insights (FMI), the global market for renal function test will ride on a steady CAGR through the forecast period (2017-2026). Over US$ 900 Mn revenues are estimated to be amassed from worldwide usage of renal function tests by 2026-end.

North America to Remain Largest Market for Renal Function Test

Presence of highly supportive government initiatives, along with their consistent implementation by several healthcare organizations have led to a widespread awareness and adoption of renal function tests in North America. North America will remain the largest market for renal function test, in terms of revenues. Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is projected to register the fastest expansion in the global renal function test market through 2026. This mainly because of robust outsourcing of contracts by leading market players to organizations in APEJ countries, such as China and India. In addition, gradual rise in investment for research & development activities by the region’s market players, and potential untapped opportunities will drive the market expansion in APEJ in the near future.
