Market Report Description

The Global Kidney Function Tests Market size is expected to reach $1.4 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 7.6% CAGR during the forecast period. There are various categories of kidney function tests or renal tests such as concentration and dilution tests, clearance tests (gives an evaluation of the filtration rate of the glomeruli, the principal filtering structures of the kidneys, complete renal blood flow), and visual & physical assessment of the urine. In addition to it, there are some other tests also that include identification of the concentration of various substances in the urine, mainly sodium, glucose, phosphate, potassium, and amino acids to assist in identifying possible non-function of the particular kidney functions commonly involved with their reabsorption.

The growth of the market would be boosted by many factors including high investments by the leading market players, a growing number of R&D activities, high occurrences of kidney diseases, and an increasing number of supportive government initiatives. Kidney function tests refer to simple laboratory tests which are utilized for evaluating and identifying functions of the kidney. The demand for kidney tests has been fueled by the growing cases of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) owing to the increasing occurrences of diabetes and hypertension.

COVID-19 Impact

As per the study conducted by the National Kidney Foundation, people who needed hospitalization due to the COVID-19 are at a considerable risk of getting AKI. The study revealed that COVID-19 patients were twice vulnerable to develop AKI in comparison to non-COVID-19 patients. Health regulatory bodies suggested that COVID-19 patients who had an AKI should get regular testing as their chances of developing CKD are more as compared to others. These aspects are likely to open growth avenues for the global kidney function tests market during the forecast period.

Product Outlook

Based on Product, the market is segmented into Clearance Test, Blood Tests, Urine Tests, Dilution & Concentration Tests, and Others. The clearance tests segment obtained a substantial revenue share of the global kidney function tests market in 2020 and would emerge as the dominating segment during the forecast period. Clearance tests are considered as the gold standard for observation and assessment of glomerular filtration rate.
