Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

CKD is a condition in which the kidneys are damaged or cannot filter blood as well as healthy kidneys, often as a result of fibrosis. Because of this, excess fluid
and waste from the blood remain in the body and may cause other health problems.

While there is no known cure, kidney disease complications can be controlled to make patients more comfortable. Treatments are focussed on managing symptoms and complications that include high blood pressure, swelling and anemia.

According to Transparency Market Research the global market for CKD drugs continues to grow at a significant pace, driven by the increasing number of CKD patients and the growing need for novel treatments to improve patients’ quality of life. The global CKD drug market stood at US$11.5 Billion in 2015. Growing at a CAGR of 3.60% between 2016 and 2024, the market’s opportunity is expected to reach US$15.8 Billion by the end of 2024.
