Global Renal Biomarkers Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global renal biomarkers market size was valued at USD 1165.14 Million in 2023. The global market size is expected to reach USD 1778.1 Million by 2029 from USD 1250.2 Mn in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period.

A biomarker is a characteristic that is objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biological processes pathogenic process responses to a therapeutic intervention. Renal biomarker consists of serum creatinine (SCR), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), urinary albumin/protein, and volume excretion.

Current Scenario of the Global Renal Biomarkers Market

The renal biomarker market is growing rapidly. This can be attributed to the rising cases of other chronic illnesses like high blood pressure and diabetes. This has a direct connection with the kidney disease. Another factor contributing to the market growth is the weakening immunity of the younger generation caused by the increased consumption of convenience and fast foods, irregular eating habits due to busy lifestyles and climate change effects.

According to the United States Renal Data System 2022 Annual Data Report, COVID-19 prevalence significantly increased in patients with kidney disease. It stated that by the end of June 2021, over 10 percent of chronic kidney disease, 13 percent of kidney transplants and 20 percent of dialysis-receiving patients got infected with the coronavirus. Besides this, race, gender and geographical location also play a major role like women, non-Hispanic black adults and elderly people. Hence, the renal biomarker market is expected to expand in the forecast period.


The growing advancements in genetics and rising incidence of kidney and renal diseases are primarily fuelling the renal biomarkers market growth.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) substantially increase morbidity and mortality. Some researchers are going into the laboratories to develop a procedure to diagnose acute kidney injury and chronic kidney diseases with surrogate marker GFR, such as serum creatinine (SCr). The growing demand for innovative techniques in the medical sector is driving the need of the market. The government organization is working towards the development in the field of renal biomarkers as there is a tremendous demand for the non-invasive biomarker process. Increasing scale research centers are also propelling the growth rate of the market.

Y-O-Y growth in the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases, chronic kidney diseases, and diabetes are significantly contributing to the development of the renal biomarkers market.

Increasing R & D activities and rising diagnostic applications of biomarkers are further anticipated to further flourish the renal biomarkers market. Contract Research Organizations (CROs) are increasing in huge numbers, which is estimated to favor the market's growth rate. The development rate of chronic kidney diseases among children increases, which is anticipated to impel the market demand. In 2018, according to the European Renal Association- European Dialysis and Transplant Association data, more than 850 million people were diagnosed with kidney disease. The vast number of patients affected with a different form of kidney disease is rising, which is leading to the improvement of new renal biomarkers that are expected to bolster the market growth.


The current biomarkers are not specific and cannot work at a particular target as they cannot detect some of the diseases. There is no adequate or proper way to detect acute and chronic kidney diseases, which is estimated to hinder the renal biomarkers market growth.  Furthermore, an inappropriate way to identify acute and chronic kidney diseases is one major factor in limiting the market growth. Inadequate reimbursement policies impede market demand. Usage of irregular and imperfect standard quality is predicted to hinder the renal biomarkers market growth in Europe. Hurdles associated with regulatory bodies are likely to restrict the market. The vast amount required for drug discovery, development, and establishment is obstructing market growth.

Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Renal Biomarkers Market

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a transmitted disease that is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 reagent. The coronavirus has affected all parts of the body like cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and other organ diseases. The patients with COVID-19 symptoms have kidney diseases, and their involvement is widespread. The sudden outburst of COVID-19 has had considerable effects on the occurrence and management of kidney diseases. The high incidences of diabetes and blood pressure are the primary cause of kidney-related diseases. COVID-19-associated acute kidney injuries are concerned with death rates and serve as independent risk factors for all-cause in-hospital death in patients with COVID-19. The advancements of regional increase in COVID-19 cases limit hospital resources. Because of the quick advancements in genomic technologies, genetics analysis has become essential in clinical practice and research. Renal biomarkers are integrated with genetic-level technological developments to detect, diagnose, and treat kidney diseases—the occurrences of kidney injuries or damages and their association with the urinary biomarkers in hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

Global Renal Biomarkers Market Analysis - By Diagnostic Technique

The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay segment led the renal biomarkers market in 2023. It accounts for 44.3 percent of the global market share and this domination is expected to continue during the forecast period owing to the rising demand for quality healthcare services. Also, this is a popular option for renal biomarker analysis because it provides greater sensitivity and specificity for identification in biological samples. In addition, its adaptability and credibility further strengthen its dominant position in the market by meeting the diagnostic demands of both researchers and medical practitioners. Furthermore, the growing incidence of chronic diseases and increased emphasis on early diagnosis of diseases are other factors influencing the growth of the segment. There is a major surge in cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular patients in recent times. It is due to this escalating pattern the demand for ELISA has shot up.

Global Renal Biomarkers Market Analysis - By Type

The functional biomarker segment is expected to hold the largest share of the market during the forecast period and is observed to have a CAGR value of 6.94% for renal biomarkers. The factors driving the segment demand are the increasing chronic kidney diseases (CKD) and awareness of serum creatinine biomarkers by private and public sectors. In addition, the growing prevalence of diabetic nephropathy and other related diseases is also fuelling the market share of the segment. For instance, one in seven adults in the United States is affected by CKD which is around 37 million people. Non-Hispanic black people and individuals aged 65 or older have a high incidence rate.
