Key Opportunity Analysis: 

The Growing Number of CKD Dialysis Centers in Developing Economies

The prevalence of chronic kidney disease is rising quickly, especially in emerging nations, making it a serious public health issue on a global scale. One of the most popular forms of treatment for those with chronic kidney disease is dialysis, and as chronic kidney disease becomes more and more widespread, thus, increases the demand for dialysis.  With the rising demand for dialysis services, developing nations are making investments in the infrastructure of the healthcare system, including the construction of new dialysis facilities. As these medications are used to treat anemia, a common complication of chronic kidney disease, in those with the disease, this presents a market opportunity for stimulating agents.

In 2022, as per the NCBI report. It revealed a contrast in chronic kidney disease (CKD) age-standardized prevalence across different regions. In high-income countries, CKD prevalence stood at 8.6% in men and 9.6% in women. Conversely, in low- and middle-income countries, the prevalence was notably higher at 10.6% in men and 12.5% in women.  Variances in CKD prevalence emphasize potential divergences in ESA demand and usage patterns across regions.

The High Applications in HIV Infections and End-Stage Renal Disorder

The burgeoning applications of Erythropoietin Stimulating Agents (ESAs) in conditions like HIV infections and end-stage renal disorders represent a significant growth opportunity for the market. With a rising incidence of anemia associated with HIV and an increasing prevalence of end-stage renal disorders globally, the demand for effective ESA treatments is expanding. ESAs play a pivotal role in managing anemia in these populations, addressing erythropoietin deficiency and improving patients' quality of life. The market's growth trajectory is propelled by the growing recognition of ESAs as essential therapeutic options in these specialized segments. As healthcare providers focus more on comprehensive care for patients with complex conditions, the application of ESAs in HIV infections and end-stage renal disorders is poised to significantly contribute to market expansion and therapeutic advancements.
The Growing Prevalence of Anemia

Anemia, prevalent across diverse medical conditions such as chronic kidney disease, cancer, and certain chronic illnesses, underscores the critical need for effective treatments like ESAs. As the global population ages and chronic diseases become more prevalent, the incidence of anemia rises, creating a growing demand for therapies that stimulate red blood cell production. ESAs play a pivotal role in managing anemia, addressing the root cause, and enhancing patients' quality of life. This expanding disease burden accentuates the crucial role of ESAs in combating anemia-associated complications, positioning the market for substantial growth opportunities as healthcare providers seek efficient and reliable treatments to address the increasing prevalence of anemia across various patient populations.

In 2023, As per World Health Organization (WHO) report, the global estimates on anemia prevalence are approximately 40% of children aged 6–59 months, 37% of pregnant women, and 30% of women aged 15–49 years are affected by anemia. The widespread prevalence of anemia across diverse age groups and demographics signifies a substantial potential demand for ESA treatments to address anemia-related conditions
