The global Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) market size was valued at USD 1.04 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 1.12 billion in 2024 to USD 2.07 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period (2024-2032). CRRT plays a vital role in the management of renal function in critically ill patients who suffer from Acute Kidney Injury. It is a slower, continuous, 24-hour dialysis therapy method that helps patients with hemodynamic instability. This therapy involves the removal of solutes from the blood through the process of hemofiltration, hemodialysis, or a combination of both methods. This therapy is a different process as compared to conventional renal replacement therapies as it is carried out continuously in an ICU setting.

In recent years, this procedure has gained significant attention due to the increasing prevalence of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and advancements in technology. Other factors attributable to the market growth include a rapidly growing number of ICU admissions across the world, rising incidence of sepsis-related acute kidney injury, and constant new product launches by key industry players.

  • For instance, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data published in August 2023, annually, 1 in 3 people dying in hospitals had sepsis during their hospitalization. Among the common complications in critically ill patients, sepsis-associated acute kidney injury (S-AKI) is prominent, contributing to the growing demand for this therapy. It is also linked with a high rate of morbidity and mortality.

The outbreak of COVID-19 had a positive impact on the market in 2020. This was primarily due to the high number of COVID-19 patients developing acute kidney injury, and thus, requiring ICU admissions. As this procedure is commonly used for patients admitted to the ICU, higher number of ICU admissions resulted in an increased demand for CRRT products and services.

However, the market witnessed a comparatively lower growth rate in 2021 due to the reduced usage of this therapy with the decreasing number of COVID-19 patients. The market witnessed a negative impact on the growth in 2022 on account of the decline in the demand for CRRT products due to the drop in the number of cases of COVID-19 associated AKI. The market is anticipated to witness steady growth during the forecast period of 2024-2032.

Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) Market Growth Factors

Growing Number of ICU Admissions to Propel Market Growth

The constant increase in the number of patients admitted to intensive/critical care units across the globe is one of the key factors that has driven the continuous renal replacement therapy market growth. Acute kidney injury is one of the common complications occuring in patients admitted in ICUs and is recognized as a major public concern across the globe. The usage of this therapy consistently demonstrates a considerable impact on the management of critically ill patients. This therapy is provided in intensive care unit only for patients having acute kidney injury caused due to several other severe complications such as cancer, diabetes, cardiac surgery, and others. It can be given for 24 hours or a longer duration based on patients’ medical condition.

  • For instance, as per the Society of Critical Care Medicine, each year, more than 5 million patients are admitted in intensive care units in the U.S. for various acute or life-threatening medical problems.

  • Similarly, according to an article published in October 2020 by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), in the U.K., approximately 13% to 18% of the total hospitalized patients experience acute kidney injury in the U.K.

Furthermore, the growing  geriatric population has led to a surge in ICU admissions across the world. The growing geriatric population is anticipated to increase the demand for the treatment and management of acute and chronic health conditions, especially, hypertension, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke which often require intensive care. Such factors are expected to contribute to the increase in the market size.

  • For instance, as per the data published by the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) in January 2024, the number of American individuals aged 65 years and above is expected to reach 82 million by 2050, witnessing an increase of 47% as compared to 2022. This number was 58 million in 2022.

  • Additionally, as per World Population Prospects of the United Nations, 2019, the number of individuals under age group 65 years and over in 2050 in Europe and North America is expected to reach 296.2 million.

Rapid Advancements and Launches of New Technologies to Spur Market Growth 

Rapid technological advancements and introduction of new innovative products for this therapy has increased its adoption in managing critically ill patients. To meet the continuously evolving demand for CRRT products, the market players are focusing on developing products tailored to specific patient population, such as pediatric patients.

  • For instance, in December 2020, Medtronic introduced Carpediem Cardio-Renal Pediatric Dialysis Emergency Machine which is specially designed for pediatric and neonatal patients. This system is intended for use in cases involving fluid overloaded or acute kidney injury (AKI) patients requiring hemofiltration or hemodialysis therapy, and it can be suitable for patients weighing between 2.5-10 kilograms.

Furthermore, improvements in membrane technology and personalization of continuous renal replacement therapy delivery, along with other extracorporeal therapies are expected to offer additional advantages to patients. Moreover, the usage of data analytics in therapy delivery, automated prescription, and the development of quality metrics also contribute to enhancing the quality of care provided to patients. Such factors are estimated to boost the market size.


Stringent Regulatory Guidelines for CRRT Therapy to Hinder Market Growth

Even though the application of continuous renal replacement therapy for ICU patients holds high potential in managing the burden of acute kidney injury, the presence of stringent regulatory guidelines for product manufacturing and approvals may impede the market growth.

Regulatory authorities across the globally such as the U.S. FDA have imposed strict regulatory requirements for the manufacturing of CRRT products to ensure the availability of high-quality systems in critical/intensive care units for this therapy. Owing to these stringent regulatory guidelines, several products that are already approved in other countries are yet to gain approvals in key countries such as the U.S.
