Kidney Dialysis Equipment Market Growth – Key Futuristic Trends And Competitive Landscape 2016-2024

Press Release

Kidneys remove waste from the body, maintain the blood pressure, make hormones to create red blood cells and thus, ensure right amount of minerals content in the body. Failure of kidney compels the need for kidney replacement. However, it is very challenging to find a matching kidney donor and hence until then an alternative treatment called dialysis is opted. As per the National Kidney Foundation, there are nearly 100,791 people awaiting for kidney transplants in the U.S. as of November 2016. Furthermore, around 3,000 new patients are added every month in the kidney transplant list in the U.S. Dialysis are of two types – hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Market Dynamics

According to the National Kidney Foundation, around 10% of the global population is affected by chronic kidney disease (2015). According to the University of California, incidence of end stage renal disease (ESRD) in the U.S. is 5% annually, while only 20% of kidney donors are available every year. The need for kidney donors in the U.S. is increasing by 8% annually. Globally, Taiwan, U.S., Japan, Mexico, and Belgium are the countries with highest prevalence of ESRD. Considering the staggering statistics of kidney donors and incidence of ESRD and CKD, the dialysis equipment market is poised to grow at a considerable growth during the forecast period. Although market for hemodialysis is high, demand for peritoneal dialysis is increasing as it offers convenience of undergoing the treatment at home.

Demographic Shift of major chunk of population towards increasing geriatric population

Elderly population are more prone to various disease due to diminished level of immunity and other co-morbid disease conditions. Diabetes mellitus is a very common disorder that is the initiator for various unwanted disease conditions. One of the most frequently arising condition is kidney failure. The unnoticed and improper care of the diabetic patient may lead to abnormal functioning of kidney and in severe cases total shut down of the organ. Kidney dialysis is a process in which an external machine acts as the kidney for the filtration of body fluids. Furthermore, the dialysis works on various sequential methods such as proper testing of vitals of the patient that is necessary for maintaining the appropriate glomerular filtration rate. Dialysis procedure helps in maintaining the proper standards of the body fluids and other important kidney functions such as waste removal, removal of extra water and salt to prevent them from building up in the body that ensure safe level of certain chemicals such as potassium, sodium and bicarbonate in the blood, which helps in controlling the blood pressure.

Key companies covered as a part of this study include Baxter International, Inc., Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co., Nipro Corporation, B. Braun Melsungen, Nikkiso Co, Ltd., Asahi Kasei Corporation and NxStage Medical, Inc.

Home care settings segment is expected to be supported by single in-center machines for dialysis

The need for kidney dialysis procedure is mostly observed in geriatric population. The number of hospital visits will decrease due to mobility issues. Therefore, the introduction of new portable single in-center dialysis machine will be useful for geriatric population. Various key players are working on developing portable dialysis machines, in order to make the dialysis process easier for the patients. For instance, Fresenius Medical Care, a Germany-based manufacturer of dialysis machines, is the only company that introduced both in-center and home use dialysis machine. This is expected to drive growth of the kidney dialysis equipment market in the near future.
