The global erythropoietin stimulating agents market size is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The growth of the market is attributed to increasing incidence of kidney diseases, chemotherapy, and major surgeries.
Erythropoietin (EPO) is a hormone that is produced mainly in kidneys which stimulates production and maintenance of red blood cells. It is a protein coding gene. EPO stimulating agents (ESAs) are mainly used often for people with long term kidney disease and anemia. Normal range of EPO is between 2.6 and 18.5 milliunits per milliliter (mU/mL).
The acute kidney injury (AKI) and anemia patients avoid EPO stimulating agents (ESAs, as these patients are unsuitable to effective response to ESAs due to the inflammation. Thus, the risks associated with ESA treatments are expected to outweigh the potential benefits.
Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints and Opportunities
- Increasing number of patients suffering from anemia and increasing application in HIV infections are expected to drive the market growth in the coming years.
- Rising prevalence of heart diseases and high blood pressure are estimated to spur the market growth in the coming years.
- High price of treatments such as chemotherapy and kidney surgery, namely nephrectomy, can hinder the market growth.
- Increasing side effects of ESAs is estimated to restrain the market growth.
- Growing focus on value-based medicine is anticipated to create significant opportunities for the market players.
