Regional Market Summary
The kidney function test market is dominated by North America owing to the rising prevalence of chronic kidney diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2017, 15% of the Americans are estimated to have chronic kidney diseases. The presence of major market players such as Baxter, Cook Medical, C. R. Bard, Inc., and others within the region, influences the market growth. Other factors such as increasing healthcare expenditure and increasing obesity within the population drive the market growth in this region.
It is estimated that Europe stood second in the global kidney function test market owing to the increasing prevalence of chronic kidney diseases. According to the European Renal Association and the European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA), 70 million people in Europe suffer from some or the other type of kidney disease. Thus, the increasing prevalence of Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKD) in this region influences the growth of the market in this region.
Asia Pacific was projected to be the fastest growing region for the global kidney function test market in 2017. The market is expected to witness growth owing to the rising prevalence of diabetes and growing geriatric population. Old age is associated with loss of kidney function. According to The Asian Development Bank (ADB), the geriatric population in Asia is estimated to reach 923 million by 2050. This provides favorable background for the market to grow in the Asia Pacific region.
The Middle East and Africa holds the least share in the global kidney function test market due to the presence of stringent government policies, low gross national income, and poor health planning and therapeutic measures. However, the market is expected to witness growth due to awareness of advances in therapeutic and preventive measures in the Middle East. Other growth factors such as hypertension, smoking, and high cholesterol within the region contribute to the market growth.
