Market Analysis - Nephrology Summit 2018

Scope and Importance of Nephrology Research

Global burden of nephrology mortality is increasing drastically every year. According to WHO 10% of the population worldwide is affected by kidney diseases and approximately 65 million die each year. Kidney disease was ranked 16th in the list of causes of total number of deaths. Over 2 million people worldwide currently receive treatment with dialysis or a kidney transplant to stay alive. Of the 2 million people who receive treatment for kidney failure, the majority are treated in only five countries – the United States, Japan, Germany, Brazil, and Italy. Reflecting this imperative, we believe that professionally-oriented education in to cure Renal diseases is essential in the training of clinicians and clinical academics who will provide the future leadership in this key area for global health. Nephrology and Hypertension conferences aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of Nephrology. It also provides the chance for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the fields of Neonatology and Perinatology.

Market Growth of Nephrology Research in the last and upcoming years

In 2011, the market value for nephrology at USD 13.3 billion, and it is expected to reach an estimated value of USD 20.5 billion in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2012 to 2018.
