Increase The Awareness About Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected the CRRT market. The surge in the number of COVID cases, along with the rise in its severity rate, is likely to create a potential increase in the incidence of kidney damage. This makes AKI the next emerging healthcare concern after respirat

Growing number of ICU patients with AKI and increasing incidence of sepsis, and growing clinical advantage of CRRT over intermittent blood purification are factors likely to boost the growth of the market. Moreover, presence of well-established key players focusing on developing and commercializing technologically advanced and initiatives undertaken by government to increase the awareness about CRRT are likely to propel the market growth during the forecast period. 

The demand for RRT among patients with COVID-19 has increased fivefold in comparison to the historical US populations (4.9% as of 2020 VS. 0.9% earlier) (Source: American Society of Nephrology, 2021). According to an article published by the International Society of Nephrology 2020, countries such as China and Italy reported AKI rates as high as 29%.  

The early initiation of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is an important step to curbing the rising incidence of AKI due to the COVID-19 infection. However, owing to the rapid rise in the demand by healthcare systems, HD and PD exist as an alternative dialysis treatment in ICUs, which can have a negative impact on the growth of the CRRT market during this period.

According to the International Society of Nephrology (INR), an estimated 13.3 million cases of AKI are registered annually worldwide. This is anticipated to boost the adoption of continuous renal replacement therapy at a rapid rate. With the rapid growth in the geriatric population globally, the prevalence of kidney-related diseases is expected to increase significantly. 

As the population in emerging nations is price-sensitive, they prefer lower-priced products. Although the cost of CRRT in developing countries is high which makes these procedures are still unaffordable for a large portion of the population due to the low purchasing power. This limits the demand and uptake of CRRT in developing as well as developed countries.

The high growth rate of the CVVHDF segment can be attributed to its flexibility as compared to other CRRT modalities. The CVVHDF modality also combines the benefits of convection and diffusion for the removal of solutes, which is another major factor supporting its growth. 

The increasing demand for invisible braces among adults due to large adult population base with AKI, increase in the hospitalization among adult population, and the large availability of CRRT system and disposables for adults undergoing CRRT procedure.
