Dialysis Equipment Market

Dialysis Equipment Market: High Demand for Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy Systems to be Observed During the Forecast Period: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Introduction

The dialysis equipment market is growing as the number of patients is increasing. The demand for cost-effective and portable dialysis equipment is also increasing since end user demand is high for low-cost dialysis equipment

Advanced technology in the medical industry is also boosting the dialysis equipment market. New product launches which are more accurate and portable are directly boosting the dialysis equipment market. Chronic kidney diseases may develop over many years and lead to end-stage kidney (or renal) disease (ESRD). This makes dialysis a necessity.

Dialysis is a technique that is an alternative for numerous vital functions of the kidneys. Dialysis machines are used to filter a patient’s blood in a number of situations, including kidney damage, kidney failure, kidney dysfunction, and removing excess content of waste products or impurities from the kidneys.

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a cure for patients with severe chronic kidney disease. Renal replacement therapy (RRT) is a therapy that replaces the normal blood-filtering function of the kidneys. CRRT is a dialysis modality used to treat critically ill, hospitalized patients in an intensive care unit who develop acute kidney injury (AKI).

Hemofilter Sets: Dialysis membranes need to be efficient at clearing waste, but must also be biocompatible with human blood. Compatibility means that exposure of blood to the dialysis membrane produces minimal adverse effects.

Filter permeability is influenced by pore size, the number of pores, and the thickness of the membrane. Generally, high flux membranes which have more or larger pores allow more solutes and ultrafiltrate to move across the membrane. Thinner membranes offer less resistance to solute movement by decreasing the distance that the solute must travel across the membrane with also increased filtration.

Solution: Dialysate is the fluid that is pumped into the filter canister, surrounding the hollow fibers. The concentration of solutes in the dialysis fluid determines diffusion gradients. The removal of surplus solutes from the blood is achieved by infusing dialysate fluid that contains a lower solute concentration than the serum concentration (e.g. dialysate does not contain urea or creatinine).

Accessories: A dialysis catheter is used for switching blood to and from the hemodialysis machine to the patient. It contains two lumens: Venous and Arterial. Hemodialysis blood line catheters and systems have been particularly designed to connect exterior systems which extract a patient's blood to the dialyzer and then returns it from the dialyzer. These are made of medical grand polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a non-toxic material.

Market Value Forecast

The global dialysis equipment market has been estimated to be valued at US$ 14,783.7 Mn in 2018, and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.8% over the forecast period (2018–2028).

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global dialysis equipment market is mainly driven by the high prevalence of CKD, worldwide. The use of dialysis over kidney replacement, aging epidemiology, product innovation, and wide product portfolio drive market growth. Focus on patient-caregiver connectivity, though the global dialysis equipment market is expected to witness impressive growth over the forecast period. Healthcare laws and regulations are factors expected to hamper market growth over the forecast period.

Segmentation by Product

The global dialysis equipment market is segmented on the basis of product type into hemodialysis devices, peritoneal dialysis devices, continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), and consumables.

In terms of value, the hemodialysis devices segment has been estimated to account for 60.4% share of the global dialysis equipment market by 2018, and is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 4.6% in terms of value over the forecast period.

The continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) segment is expected to witness a growth rate of 6.8% during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the relatively less time for the suturing process as compared to the conventional approach.

Segmentation by Disease Condition

By disease condition, the global dialysis equipment market is segmented into chronic and acute. Among the disease condition segments, the chronic segment is expected to witness impressive growth during the forecast period.
