U.S. Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

In the pre-COVID-19 era, the burden of COVID-19-associated AKI climbed to almost 4 million cases per year. CRRT was utilized to treat roughly 23,105 AKI patients per year prior to COVID-19. The need for CRRT appeared to be 5 times higher in COVID-19 patients, i.e., 4.9 percent, than in historical populations (0.9 percent). In community cohort datasets, 5%–15% of people hospitalized with COVID-19 needed dialysis. Moreover, in some North America regions, the number of people utilizing CRRT jumped by 370 percent over normal levels due to which the demand for the product increased during the pandemic. For instance, Fresenius Medical Care North America's Renal Therapies Group (FMCNA) released the first batch of multiBic dialysate solutions to U.S. hospitals in May 2020, according to an FDA emergency use authorization. These medicines were intended to provide CRRT to COVID-19-related individuals with acute renal failure.

Furthermore, the pandemic also led to a surge in demand for CRRT worldwide. As a result, the market for continuous renal replacement therapy witnessed an increase in financial incentives as well as regulatory support from various government agencies. In addition, the FDA imposed tight regulations requiring manufacturers to ensure the availability of high-quality CRRT devices in intensive care units.

The increased demand for advanced CRRT devices as a result of improved patient outcomes is a high-impact major driver of the market for continuous renal replacement therapy. The current CRRT technology has made it possible to analyze and respond to technical data in a complete manner. These improvements have resulted in a detailed examination of prescription and delivery patterns, which has had a favorable impact on clinical results from the standpoint of quality assurance. The most recent CRRT machines allow automated data gathering and uniform language, allowing for cross-institutional comparisons. Several major market manufacturers have introduced sophisticated CRRT machines that use these technologies, which is expected to boost the growth of the market.

Furthermore, the development of improved pediatric CRRT products is projected to the market for continuous renal replacement therapy in the near future. Pediatric patients who require CRRT have traditionally been treated with systems that are created and indicated for adults and are not licensed for pediatric usage, which can lead to clinical problems in neonates. As a result, various manufacturers currently offer a range of renal care solutions that enhance access to care, results, and quality of life for patients with severe renal disease or injury anywhere in the globe, regardless of their size or age, which is projected to fuel market expansion.

According to American Hospital Association in 2023, there were 5,157 community hospitals, 206 federal government hospitals, and 107 other hospitals in the U.S. In addition, the significant increase in the number of hospital admissions for AKI along with the increasing geriatric population is boosting the demand for CRRT systems, thereby propelling market growth. Moreover, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2021, nearly 786,000 people in the U.S. were living with ESKD, also known as end-stage renal disease (ESRD), with 71% on dialysis and 29% with a kidney transplant. As of 2020, there were around 7,500 dialysis clinics in the U.S.

Product Insights

Based on product, the market is segmented into systems and consumables. The consumables segment held the largest revenue share of 60.6% in 2022 and is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 9.1% over the forecast period. The increase in the utilization of charcoal filters, haemofilter, fluid and other consumable products in CRRT has been a contributing factor to the segment growth. Hemofilters, often known as artificial kidneys, are made out of a hollowfiber membrane that decides how much solute and fluid is removed. For patients with significant renal illnesses, businesses like Baxter and Fresenius offer a variety of consumables across modalities. Although these products are inexpensive, they are frequently purchased as compared to other segments.

In April 2020, Baxter International Inc. provided updates on its efforts to boost the global supply of critically required dialysis. As a result of an unprecedented spike in COVID-19 patients requiring CRRT, the company witnessed demand for numerous acute dialysis products up to five times higher than historical levels. In addition, companies continued to work with partners and governments around the world to address these issues, as well as to maximize consumables such as fluids and setting capacity and supply to meet unprecedented surges in demand for its acute dialysis products in Europe and the U.S.

Over the projection period, the system segment is expected to witness a moderate CAGR of 7.8%. The CRRT machines are mainly intended to deliver renal therapy. It consists of blood and fluid pumps, a user-friendly interface, scales, and integrated safeguards. Significant technological advancements, such as high-volume permeability of CRRT, and integration of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) connectivity, are likely to drive segment growth. Manufacturers are currently developing sophisticated devices that are safe and provide consistent performance throughout CRRT procedures. These machines also include a user-friendly interface for easy use. For instance, Baxter International Inc., in May 2021, announced the launch of PrisMax 2 worldwide, the most recent version of the company’s next-generation platform. PrisMax 2 is developed to help hospitals meet the special demands of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) while simplifying the transfer of organ support along with continuous renal replacement therapy.

Modality Insights

Based on modality, the market is segmented into slow continuous ultra-filtration (SCUF), continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH), continuous venovenous hemodialysis (CVVHD), and continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration (CVVHDF). The continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 31.6% in 2022. Over the projection period, the rising prevalence of fluid overload cases, which are commonly observed in acute kidney injury patients in critical care units, is predicted to move the CVVH segment forward. An article published by Elsevier stated that congestive heart failure accounted for approximately five percent of all-cause mortality among dialysis patients. This condition is closely associated with fluid overload, which will consequently lead to an increase in demand and usage of CVVH treatment.

Global Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy market share and size, 2022

The CVVHDF segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period. CVVHDF uses a highly efficient hemodiafilter to remove both fluid and solute, combining hemodialysis and hemofiltration modalities. This treatment method results in the total removal and replacement of fluid and solute from the blood, and it is the most prevalent way of CRRT for AKI in diverse nations. Until 2008, when CVVHDF was released and became the major CRRT treatment mode, CVVH was the primary therapy modality for CRRT. The market for CVVHDF is currently predicted to increase significantly during the projection period, as it is linked to a higher survival rate than other CRRT modalities.
