Chronic kidney disease (CKD), or chronic renal disease, is a condition characterized by a gradual loss of kidney function over time. In the early stages, CKD is a largely asymptomatic condition that damages the kidneys and leads to the loss of kidney function over time (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019). As the disease progresses, the symptoms worsen and eventually lead to kidney failure (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019). The glomerular filtration rate (GFR), a key measure of kidney function, is determined by the amount of creatinine in the blood, and the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) classification system is considered as the standard for GFR measurement and diagnosis of CKD (Levin et al., 2013).
In the 7MM, the diagnosed prevalent cases of CKD are expected to increase from 8,569,869 cases in 2020 to 9,440,881 cases in 2030, at an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 1.01%. In 2030, the US will have the highest number of diagnosed prevalent cases of CKD in the 7MM, with 4,253,149 diagnosed prevalent cases, whereas Italy will have the fewest diagnosed prevalent cases with 339,208 cases. In the 7MM, the total prevalent cases of CKD are expected to increase from 97,176,505 cases in 2020 to 107,283,608 cases in 2030, at an AGR of 1.04%. GlobalData epidemiologists attribute the increase in the diagnosed prevalent cases and total prevalent cases of CKD to population dynamics in each market.
- This report provides an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and the global and historical epidemiological trends for CKD in the seven major markets (7MM: US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, and Japan). The report includes a 10-year epidemiology forecast for the diagnosed and total prevalent cases of CKD. The diagnosed and total prevalent cases of CKD are segmented by age (18 years and older), sex, and stage. The diagnosed prevalent cases of CKD are segmented based on dialysis-dependent and non-dialysis-dependent cases.
- The dialysis dependent cases are further segmented by hemodialysis-dependent and peritoneal dialysis-dependent. Additionally, the diagnosed prevalent cases of CKD were further segmented by hyperparathyroidism, hyperphosphatemia, and hyperkalemia among dialysis-dependent and non-dialysis-dependent cases. This epidemiology forecast for CKD is supported by data obtained from peer-reviewed articles and population-based studies.
- The CKD epidemiology report is written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
- The Epidemiology Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 7MM.
