Market Size & Trends

The global clinical nutrition for chronic kidney diseases market size was estimated at USD 1.57 billion in 2023 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.03% from 2024 to 2030, owing to the increasing demand for clinical nutrition for individuals with chronic kidney diseases (CKD). CKDs pose a significant challenge, particularly in low- and middle-income countries that are ill-prepared to manage their effects. The condition has become one of the primary causes of death globally and is among the few non-communicable diseases that have seen a rise in related fatalities over the last two decades. The substantial number of people affected and the severe negative consequences of CKD necessitate increased initiatives for improved prevention and treatment.

High blood pressure and diabetes are the two most common causes of developing CKD. The rising prevalence of malnutrition among the adult population, increase in the instances of obesity, and rising chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes are the major factors boosting the market growth. Oral clinical nutrition for CKD includes vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates in powder, liquid, and semi-solid forms. Key market players manufacturing oral clinical nutrition products are advancing them with the new flavors to enhance the taste, thereby capturing a larger customer base.

The rising awareness among the people and healthcare professionals to treat such deficiencies has increased the demand for oral clinical nutrition products. For instance, as per the NIH report of 2019, the sale of multivitamins and mineral supplements increased to 38% for adults in the U.S., which generated a revenue of USD 55.7 billion in 2020.

Unhealthy lifestyles have led to an increasing burden of health issues such as lack of nutrition, obesity, and poor immunity leading to the rise of chronic, neurological, and autoimmune diseases. In May 2022, Nestle Health Science agreed to acquire Puravida to expand the NHSc portfolio of nutrition segment in Brazil. The nutrition portfolio included minerals, herbals, and vitamins supplements, nutritional beverages using plant-based foods, aiming to enhance the nutritional content and quality of the supplements.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

Research in natural compounds and nutraceuticals has expanded the scope for market growth. Some prominent examples include the use of medical foods comprising polyunsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols, and phenolic compounds. Moreover, according to a 2021 NCBI study, plant-derived compounds such as resveratrol and curcumin have been proven effective in reducing oxidative stress, thus slowing CKD progression and the consequent cardiovascular threats. For instance, in 2021, Vitaflo International Ltd. was conducting further research on its product, Renastart, which maintains nutritional balance in children with CKD.

Market participants have been involved in strategic initiatives such as mergers, collaboration, agreements, and acquisitions to expand the nutrition portfolio, propelling market growth globally. For instance, in January 2023, Baxter International Inc. unveiled a strategic plan involving spinning of their global Renal Care and Acute Therapies units into individual, publicly-traded companies, and streamlining the commercial and manufacturing footprint for their BioPharma Solutions arm. The company created this plan to drive long-term performance, enhance operational effectiveness, create value for stakeholders, and foster innovation.

To aid the proper adoption of CKD supplements, consumers and regulatory bodies follow regulatory practices in the market. Manufacturers need to adhere to varied factors associated with regulation, safety, efficacy, and consistency. For instance, in February 2023, the FDA approved the first successful oral treatment for anemia caused by CKD for adults on dialysis.

Companies in the clinical nutrition for CKDs market are expanding both globally and regionally to meet the increasing demand. The rise in CKD prevalence and higher geriatric population have increased the demand for innovative medical foods such as water-soluble vitamins. For instance, in November 2023, Bayer launched a digital patient support package in England designed to help people with type 2 diabetes look after the health of their kidneys and avoid the progression of CKD.

Product Insights

Oral clinical nutrition dominated the market in 2023, commanding over 50% of the market share. Increased preference for orally administered products, commercial viability, and supportive initiatives are key factors driving the demand for orally administered medical foods. Furthermore, the growing manufacturing of oral products in the form of pre-thickened products, powders, and pills is anticipated to fuel the segment.

Parenteral feeding formulas are expected to register the fastest growth over the forecast period. Patients with CKD might experience malnutrition and oral feeding challenges and would require parenteral nutrition as an alternative. With respect to acute or chronic renal failure, particularly for patients undergoing extracorporeal renal replacement therapies such as hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, parenteral nutrition may prove crucial due to the severity of the underlying condition and associated catabolism.

Stage Insights

Adults led the segment with over 85% of the market revenue share in 2023, owing to the increasing prevalence of nutritional deficiency and malnutrition among the adult population. Individuals in the adult age group may experience decreased muscle strength, vitamin, and calcium deficiencies, particularly among women over 30 years old. Furthermore, they can face apathy, weakened immunity, high blood pressure, and fatigue. These factors contribute to nutritional deficiencies within the adult population.

The adults segment is also anticipated to grow the fastest over the forecast period. According to NCBI, an estimated 843.6 million individuals affected by CKD stages 1-5 worldwide. Moreover, according to the CDC, CKD is more common in people aged 65 years or older (34%) than in people aged 45-64 years (12%) or 18-44 years (6%).Therefore, the growing incidence of CKDs worldwide underscores the importance of collaborative initiatives aimed at preventing and managing CKD and its associated complications at a global level.

Sales Channel Insights

The institutional sales segment dominated the market with over 40% revenue share in 2023. The sales channel includes commercial sales to government organizations, hospitals, and research institutes. The increased prevalence of CKDs globally contributes to a surge in patient visits to medical facilities seeking diagnosis and treatment options. Consequently, as patient awareness rises, the trend toward utilizing official hospital channels for acquiring CKD nutrition prescriptions has grown.
