APOL-1 Mediated Kidney Disease Market Growth Reliant on Discovery of Advanced Therapeutics: FMI Study

ESOMAR-certified Future Market Insights’ recent APOL-1 mediated kidney disease market report forecasts a healthy growth outlook through 2021 and beyond. As of 2020, the market was valued at US$ 3 billion, majorly bolstered by ongoing active clinical pipeline projects to discover potentially new drug candidates. Future projections indicate a positive forecast, with an anticipated CAGR exceeding 4% through 2031.

According to the National Kidney Foundation, as of 2015, 10% of the global population was affected by chronic kidney disease. As of 2019, over 750 million people were impacted. Consequently, research and development spending to address this burden has inclined in recent years. Between 2016 and 2017, global R&D spending amounted to nearly 4%, costing around US$ 97.2 billion. Such promising figures are opening up future investment opportunities by prospective pharmaceutical giants.

Recently, in February 2021, British pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca received marketing authorization to advocate its anti-diabetic drug dapagliflozin for treating patients in India suffering from chronic kidney disease. The company has already made significant strides, negotiating an over US$ 300 million licensing agreement with Ionis Pharmaceuticals for two pipeline antisense therapies in 2018. The candidate under investigation is the AZD2373 for treating the original cause of APOL-1 CKDs.

“As the global chronic kidney diseases burden increases, R&D projects to accelerate potential drug candidate availability are rising, generating massive revenue pools across key markets, heightening growth prospects,” says the FMI analyst.
