Acute Kidney Injury Treatment Market (Treatment: Dialysis and Supportive Care; and End-user: Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, and Others)- Global Industry Analysis, Share, Growth, Regional Outlook and Forecasts, 2022-2030

According to Nova one advisor, the global Acute Kidney Injury Treatment market was valued at USD 2.5 billion in 2022 and it is expected to hit around USD 4.18 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a sudden episode of kidney failure/damage that can range from minor loss of kidney functions to complete kidney failure. Diarrhea, feeling sick or being sick, dehydration, drowsiness, and confusion are some of the common symptoms of acute kidney injuries.

Treatment for kidney injuries primarily depends on the cause and extent of the injury. Experimental treatments for the management of AKIs primarily comprise vasoactive peptides, growth-factors, endothelin inhibitors, adhesion molecules, and bio-artificial kidneys. Aminophylline has also been used experimentally for prophylaxis, specifically against renal failure (RF).

 Increase in Geriatric Population and Rise in Incidence of Acute Kidney Injury

The geriatric population has increased in the past few years, especially in developed countries such as the U.S., Japan, and most countries in Western Europe. These countries have high geriatric population vis-à-vis their developing counterparts. This can be ascribed to the improvement in health care infrastructure, favorable reimbursement policies, and advancements in health care facilities. Access to multiple diagnostic and treatment services has improved, specifically in developed countries. This has increased the life expectancy of the population.

Studies indicate that a majority (60% to 70%) of the elderly population is susceptible to acute kidney injury. Increase in geriatric population leads to high rate of ailments. This, in turn, is likely to augment the demand for acute kidney injury medications across the globe in the near future.

Around 13.3 million people across the world are estimated to be affected by acute kidney injury. The patient population is expected to rise substantially in the next few decades. Increase in incidence rate of acute kidney injury is creating a significant socioeconomic impact across the globe.

Surge in Number of Critical Care Admissions

According to an independent research, multiple system organ failure (MSOF) and other comorbidities contribute to high mortality rate among intensive care unit (ICU) patients. However, the mortality rate of AKI stands at 50% to 80% in ICU patients. Acute kidney injury (AKI) often occurs in intensive care units (ICUs), thus leading to high expenditure along with adverse clinical outcomes.

AKI is primarily associated with incomplete kidney recovery and increase in mortality and cost. This is likely to lead to a surge in demand for effective acute kidney failure treatment, which is projected to accelerate acute kidney injury treatment market progress.

Lifesaving Treatment Propelling Dialysis Segment

In terms of treatment, the dialysis segment accounted for major market share in 2021. Dialysis facilitates the survival of critically ill patients with AKIs. The total number of dialysis service centers has increased across the globe. This is anticipated to drive the dialysis segment during the forecast period.

According to the United States Renal Data system (USRDS), the U.S. had more than 7,500 dialysis centers in 2021. Governments of developing countries are setting up new dialysis centers and improving the existing ones. In November 2022, Southlake Biotech, an innovative biotech-firm, announced that it will receive US$ 33.0 Mn in financing to advance its portfolio of kidney disease treatments.

Growth in Incidence Bolstering Pre-renal Acute Kidney Injury Segment

Pre-renal acute kidney injuries account for 55% to 65% of cases with acute kidney injury (AKIs). Introduction of novel drugs and increase in investment in research and innovation are likely to augment the pre-renal acute kidney injury segment during the forecast period.

Regional Outlook of Acute Kidney Injury Treatment Market

North America accounted for around 43.0% share of the global industry in 2021. Increase in geriatric population, rise in acute kidney injury patient pool, promising clinical pipeline, and development of advanced & efficient products are fueling the North America market expansion. Rise in number of key players; increase in acquisitions, mergers, and collaborations; government approval for new products; and surge in adoption of advanced products are boosting business outlook in the region.

Asia Pacific is projected to be a rapidly growing region for AKI treatment during the forecast period. Increase in geriatric population; rise in prevalence of chronic diseases, which are high risk factors for acute kidney injury; growth in urbanization; and surge in critical care admissions are boosting the region's market statistics. Government initiatives in the healthcare sector, increase in investment in R&D activities, and rise in presence of global players are fueling the demand for AKI treatment in Asia Pacific.
