India Nephrologist Market Poised for Continued Growth - Projected to Reach USD 102.7 Million in 2027

A study recently conducted revealed that the India Nephrologist market was worth USD 93.6 million in 2020 and is further projected to reach USD 102.7 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 1.4% during the forecast period (2021-2027). In India, the prevalence of kidney diseases is increasing despite major advances in medicine, which leads to an increase in the need for nephrologists. Additionally, technological advancements in the medical field have also positively impacted the growth of the India nephrologist market. Moreover, a cost-effective nephrology system further drives the growth of the India nephrologist market. What’s more, increasing government initiatives to open free dialysis centers for people have further boosted the market growth of India nephrologist market.

Increasing Prevalence of Renal Ailments Driving the Growth of India Nephrologist Market

According to health experts, the number of Indians suffering from chronic kidney disease has more than doubled in the last 15 years, with 17 out of every 100 residents now suffering from some sort of renal illness. The increasing number of geriatric populations in India in the last few years have also propelled the growth of the Indian nephrologist market. The geriatric population is more prone to diseases due to their weak immunity. Dialysis is the most common medical treatment for chronic renal failure in the elderly population. According to the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) every year, India sees a total of 2, 00,000 new dialysis patients. The majority of chronic kidney failure patients are diagnosed in the late stages, with over half of them seeing a nephrologist for the first time in this stage. The AN also states that, in a year, 6000 people undergo a kidney transplant, and 60,000 people get hemodialysis. Thus, the increasing incidences of kidney diseases among the elderly population are driving the growth of the India nephrologist market.

The emergence of better and advanced technologies in the nephrology market has shifted consumer understanding on leveraging these medical facilities for better health benefits, thereby, boosting the demand for nephrologists in India.

Increasing Number of Regulatory Approvals Fueling the Growth of India Nephrologist Market

A pharmaceutical or biotechnology company must first seek approval from regulatory bodies before launching a new product. Among the renowned regulatory bodies in India are the Indian Medical Association and the governing bodies in the nephrology industry. Recent developments in emerging technologies, combined with expertise in the field of medical devices, have led to the introduction of medical devices and drugs for nephrology that has been approved by the regulatory bodies. Thus, nephrologists in India can use new medical devices for checkups and treatment of patients, which in turn is boosting the growth of the India nephrology market. Due to the above-mentioned factors, the India nephrologist market is catching pace.

For instance, J.B. Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals, one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in India has announced its entry into the field of nephrology with the establishment of a new specialized branch called "RENOVA," which will serve patients undergoing treatment for Chronic Kidney Disease. A growing number of cases of hypertension are contributing to the prevalence of CKD in India. As a result, the regulatory bodies are focusing on making sure that the best and most effective drugs are approved for launch in the Indian market, thus accelerating market growth.

Diabetes Segment Holds the Largest Share in the Market by Application

Based on applications, the India nephrologist market has been segmented into acute & chronic kidney diseases, kidney-related metabolic disorders, diabetes, fluid, & electrolyte disorders, kidney & pancreas transplantation, glomerulonephritis & glomerular diseases, kidney stones, and others. The diabetes segment held the largest share in the India nephrologist market share in 2020 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. A majority of the Indians tend to prefer sweet dishes, which in turn puts them at greater risk of developing diabetes.

In the past few years, the number of people suffering from diabetes has increased due to changes in lifestyles and increased sugar consumption. A diabetic patient from India accounts for one in six worldwide. According to the International Diabetes Federation, as of 2019, there are an estimated 77 million diabetics in India, placing it second among the top ten diabetes-prone countries. Diabetes causes many people to have kidney issues, which is called chronic kidney disease. Therefore, diabetes, a leading cause of chronic kidney disease, drives the growth of the India nephrologist market.

Impact of COVID-19

The pace of the Indian nephrology market has slowed since the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to a shift in the focus of the healthcare sector, primarily towards COVID- related cases, many surgeries, tests, treatment procedures, and appointments related to nephrological disorders have either been cancelled, postponed, or reduced. However, despite irregularities in healthcare regarding chronic disease cases, the nephrology market has not completely collapsed in India.

A patient suffering from chronic kidney diseases requires as many as five dialysis sessions per week. Thus, the nephrology market remained in demand even after many health centers had ceased dialysis activities. Additionally, studies have shown that 3-9% of Covid-19 patients may develop acute kidney injury, and two-thirds of hospitalized patients exhibited massive protein leaks in urine. These issues are being treated with urgent dialysis or continuous renal replacement therapy. These complications continued to drive the nephrology market despite the pandemic.
