COVID-19 Complications Trigger Growth of Global Kidney Function Test
Global surge in renal disorders has propelled the demand for kidney function tests. The primary causative factors for rise in kidney disorders include chronic diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, hypertension, infections, renal calculi, cysts, and cancer. Certain specific and genetic diseases such as amyloidosis, alport’s syndrome, lupus nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and renal tubular acidosis have also been responsible for the growth of Kidney Function tests market. In addition, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has led to significant risk of developing Acute Kidney Infection in people reported to have COVID infection. Thus, high risk patients with co-morbidities such as cardiovascular diseases and Type 2 Diabetes have been recommended to undergo Kidney Function tests as a part of COVID treatment guidelines thereby boosting the demand for Kidney Function Test.
The global kidney function test market will reach US$800 Mn in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2022 to 2027. The market by products includes dipsticks, reagents, and disposables. The dipstick market is expected to foresee the highest growth during the forecast owing to ease and convenience of these tests. These dipstick tests are extremely helpful for geriatric population as they do not need blood withdrawal thereby avoiding needle stick injuries consequently depicting a slow growth for blood kidney function tests.
Growing awareness coupled with rise in significant investment made by the major players and favorable reimbursement policies including healthcare insurance coverage for such tests has enhanced the overall growth of kidney function tests. Recently in 2019, Renalytix AI plc announced CPT reimbursement code 105U for its KidneyIntelX test. Renalytix AI plc is a developer of clinical diagnostics tests for renal disorders using artificial intelligence. This company also intends to seek coverage from Medicare and private insurance payers for kidney diseases arising from type 2 diabetes. Moreover, there has been huge grants flowing in support of chronic kidney diseases, organizations like Kidney International and International Society of Nephrology which have been collaboratively building, connecting, educating, training, and conducting research through obtaining of these grants. Thus, encouraging support from governments, companies and global professional associations are boosting the growth of kidney function test market.
