The increasing incidence of renal disorders, growing incidence of other chronic disorders impacting renal function, growing awareness and adoption of preventive healthcare approaches, implementation of favorable government initiatives to promote renal health, rising geriatric population, and increasing number of drug development initiatives are the key drivers for global creatinine measurement market.
The Jaffe’s kinetic method segment is expected to hold the largest in the market in 2018
The creatinine test kits and regents market, by test type, is segmented into the Jaffe’s kinetic method and enzymatic method. In 2018, the Jaffe’s kinetic method segment is expected to hold the largest share of the creatinine measurement market. The widespread availability and cost-effectiveness of kits and reagents used in Jaffe’s kinetic method is a key factor driving the growth of creatinine test kits and regents market.
Based on the type of sample, the blood/serum segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Based on type of sample the creatinine test kits and regents market is segmented into blood/serum and urine samples. The blood/serum segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Most creatinine measurement kits and reagents are based on the analysis of creatinine in blood samples owing to its accuracy in inferring creatinine concentration and low risk of contamination.
North America to dominate the creatinine test kits market
In 2018, North America is expected to dominate the creatinine test kits market followed by Europe. The large share of North America is attributed to factors such as the increasing incidence of renal disorders, rising prevalence of other chronic disorders like hypertension and diabetes (which can lead to renal dysfunction) in the region, and the implementation of favorable government initiatives to increase awareness about kidney diseases and their early diagnosis.
