Kidney cysts are abnormal, fluid-filled sacs that form in the kidneys. The major symptoms of kidney cyst are pain in between ribs and hip, pain in belly or back, fever, frequent urination, or blood in urine or dark urine. Simple cysts of the kidneys are very common, especially in the aging population. Simple cysts have a smooth border and clear fluid center. In some cases, these cysts are found when a person has an ultrasound or CT scan of the abdomen for some other reason. Simple cysts may develop when fluid from the urinary space leaks into the tissues of the kidney. Sometimes more than one cyst is seen in each kidney. Unless a simple cyst becomes very large, there is rarely any damage to the kidney. The urine test or urinalysis, will detect any abnormal cells or proteins that could mean there is some kidney problem. If the blood and urine tests are normal, any other tests are usually not required.
Increasing prevalence of kidney cysts, increasing investment by biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in R&D, and rising need for the better treatment methods drive the growth of the kidney cyst market. Furthermore, favorable reimbursement policies, increased application and significant investments in the development of new technologies for the treatment of diseases will fuel the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, increasing geriatric population will fuel the kidney cyst market growth. Established market players in the developed countries leads the globalization by pushing new products and services into the developing countries and emerging economies. However, higher treatment cost may hinder the kidney cyst market growth during the forecast period.
The kidney cyst market is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~7.2% during the forecast period 2017-2023.
