Global hyperkalemia drugs market: Growing use of various therapeutics

The increasing use of drugs such as renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitors, ace-inhibitors, beta-blockers, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), cyclosporine, and heparin for the treatment of various indications increases the risk of hyperkalemia. The usage of these medications is associated with various side effects, which include a decrease in potassium excretion levels. NSAIDs are one of the major drugs that increase the risk of hyperkalemia and chronic kidney diseases. These are the most commonly prescribed medications and are largely available over-the-counter (OTC). As a result, the market has witnessed a significant increase in the use of these drugs for the treatment of various indications.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on pharmaceuticals, “The market has also witnessed a significant rise in the use of RAAS inhibitors due to the high efficacy displayed by these drugs for the treatment of hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, and renal diseases. However, the use of RAAS inhibitors increases the risk of hyperkalemia. As per a study conducted by the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the risk of RAAS inhibitors induced hyperkalemia is high in patients with chronic kidney diseases and heart failure. Hence, during the forecast period, the increasing use of these medications is expected to drive the growth of the market significantly.”
