The global dialysis market size was USD 90.33 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 177.56 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period.

Dialysis market growth is driven by significant rise in the prevalence of chronic kidney diseases, which in turn has increased  patient visits in renal therapy  clinics over the last decade. Moreover, improved reimbursement policies for renal therapy by private as well as public institutions is boosting the expansion of the market at a remarkable rate. For instance, according to the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) PPS final rule, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) expects to pay around US$ 10.3 billion in Medicare reimbursements to approximately 7,000 ESRD providers in 2020 for the costs of delivering renal hemodialysis services.

Moreover, the market is projected to witness a boost in growth owing to the recent COVID-19 outbreak. The increasing number of patients affected by COVID-19 has  led  to a rise in the demand for renal equipment, as critically ill patients are experiencing  multiple organ failure, including kidney failure. As per National Institutes of Health (NIH), around 5% of the COVID-19 patients are currently experiencing acute kidney injury and would require renal replacement therapy. This scenario has led to an increase in the adoption of renal therapy equipment in hospital settings and is projected to propel the market in coming years.

Shift Of Patients From Clinics To Homecase Settings Identified As A Significant Market Trend

Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are required to undergo treatment at renal facilities or they can opt for these services at home. Rising preference of patients for receiving care at home, especially in the developed economies, is one of the key trends in the market. Also, governments in nations such as the U.S. are engaged in setting up new payment methods for treating kidney disease, which can favor lower cost care at home. This is estimated to propel the number of patients opting for treatment in home care settings in coming years.

Emergence of Advanced Renal Care Machines to Augment the Market Growth

Key companies such as B.Braun and Fresenius Kabi are engaged in developing and introducing technologically efficient advancements and advanced dialyzers in the global market to gain strategically advantageous position. The companies are focusing more on the potential regions to improve the accessibility of patient population towards care delivery. For instance, Fresenius Kabi, one of the major players in the market, launched 4008A machine in January 2019, which is specially designed to meet the requirements of populations in emerging markets.


 Rising  Prevalence of Chronic Kidney Diseases to Augment the Market

The overall burden of ESRD and CKD is one of the highest in terms of cost and healthcare services. Rising incidence of chronic kidney diseases and renal failure is one of the key factors for the growth of this market. ESRD is the stage when one or both the kidneys permanently stop working properly, and the patient needs to undergo long-term renal infusion therapy or receive a kidney transplant. Thus, rising prevalence of ESRD is augmenting the cost burden of kidney diseases in the world and is one of the key factors for the increasing revenue generataion from the services. According to the CDC, around 15% of the U.S. population and 14% of Hispanics are suffering from CKD.

Combined with this is the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, which is estimated to further aid the growth of the market for next few years. This is predominantly attributed to the active guidelines issued by government bodies to undertake the procedure in critical COVID-19 patients. For instance, recently the Government of India has issued guidlenes regarding the dialysis procedures for COVID-19 patients such as, state should earmark and identify one facility with adequate proportion of trained staff, dialysis machines, water treatment systems and other support equipments as preliminary measures, in case of increase in Covid-19 pandemic.

Further, the green signal by regulatory authorities for the introduction of new products and consumables, participation of public authorities to prevent and control renal diseases, and collaborative work done by various organizations to give such efficient renal services in the niche areas of developing regions are estimated to boost the market growth.

Improved Accessibility To Hemodialysis Care Centers to Drive Market Growth

The prevalence of CKD has increased remarkably, which is propelling the demand for efficient renal facilities with lesser waiting time. The availability of well-qualified nephrologists in developed countries has in turn increased the count of renal care facilities. Moreover, to cater to the rising demand for renal care in emerging economies,  investors are focusing more on increasing  renal treatment centers in countries such as India, China, Mexico, etc. This is expected to fuel the revenue generated in the market in the coming years. The affordable care delivery in such countries is expanding the number of visits in these facilities.


Rising Patient Pool Opting For Kidney Transplantation Procedure To Restrict the Market Growth

Kidney transplantation is one of the alternate treatment options for patients suffering from ESRD and stage III CKD, wherein the patients receive kidney from their donor and the affected kidney is replaced by a healthy one. The better treatment outcomes associated with kidney transplant and affordability of the procedure owing to the favorable reimbursement policies is projected to affect the growth of the market during the forecast period. Patients diagnosed with ESRD prefer kidney transplantation over renal infusion owing to the long-term benefits associated with the procedure. Combined with this, published articles and journals have also reported that there has been an increase in the cost of renal therapy owing to the coronavirus pandemic in India. This could negatively affect the market growth.
