Creatinine meters, prominently used in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic kidney diseases, play an essential role in renal dialysis monitoring and measurement of urine and blood analytes.
Generally, it takes several hours to test creatinine at clinical labs. Moreover, the risk to patients with specific conditions is high in the clinical testing because of the use of imaging agents like barium and iodine, which are widely used in the radiological procedures. The popularity of creatinine meter, particularly handheld devices, is thus increasing across the healthcare industry.
The creatinine meter allows healthcare professionals to get the quantitative results for creatinine test within minutes with the precision with ease of testing. These features of handheld creatinine meters are fuelling the market demand for creatinine meters globally. Creatinine test is mainly conducted to monitor the renal function when urine elimination is obstructed, or the glomerular filtration is reduced significantly.
Key Dynamics: Global Creatinine Meter Market
Growing Prevalence of Chronic Renal Disorders and Rising Adoption of Preventive Healthcare Tactics
The cumulative growth in the creatinine meter market is characterized by the increasing prevalence of renal disorders and other chronic disorders impacting the renal function.
Growing geriatric population and rise in renal diseases and disorders due to unhealthy lifestyle are some of the principal driving factors in an ever-increasing number of consumers for point of care creatinine meters. Technological innovations in creatinine meters, easy and quick results with precision, easy availability of kits, are some of the factors stimulating the growth of the creatinine meter market. Increasing awareness about renal health care in people, and favorable reimbursement and health insurance scenarios are further boosting the growth of global creatinine meter market.
Rapid Growth in Geriatric Population and Implementation of Favorable Government Initiatives to Promote Renal Health
Increasing geriatric population is the significant factor considered in the ever increasing healthcare spending across the globe. People probing to the health disorders mainly related to renal and diabetic disorders due to rising age. The large number of global population is geriatric and as a result demand for point of care devices is increasing.
Various governments are taking the initiatives for health awareness in geriatric population and providing the favorable schemes for promoting the renal health in the geriatric population. These factors are further boosting the demand for creatinine meter in the global market.
