The global hemodialysis equipment market size was valued at USD 14.12 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 14.67 billion in 2024 to USD 26.31 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Hemodialysis is a blood filtration process used to treat patients suffering from kidney failure. The process helps to clean blood with the help of a dialyzer, also known as an “artificial kidney.” There are two types of options for hemodialysis, namely in-center hemodialysis or home-based hemodialysis. In-center hemodialysis is usually performed three times a week for about 4 hours, while home-based hemodialysis is performed more regularly, 4-7 times per week for shorter hours each time.

The rising prevalence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and the global geriatric population are the key factors driving the global market growth. Certain conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, excessive alcoholism, drug abuse, and genetic disorders are also causing end-stage renal disease.

  • For instance, according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2020, diabetes is the leading cause of ESRD cases in developed countries.

Furthermore, technological advancements in hemodialysis equipment, such as improved machines with enhanced safety features, are expected to propel the demand for these devices to treat chronic kidney diseases. Moreover, the surging demand for home-based machines and the growing number of mergers and acquisitions by the market players are anticipated to create several growth opportunities in the market during the forecast period.

  • In August 2022, W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. announced the acquisition of InnAVasc Medical, Inc., a privately-held medical devices company focused on delivering advanced care for patients suffering from kidney disorders who utilize graft circuits for dialysis treatment.

The pandemic period witnessed numerous severe COVID-19 cases which recorded acute kidney failure. This contributed to an increased global demand for hemodialysis equipment despite several constraints such as lockdown restrictions. Furthermore, the increased demand resulted in a shortage of dialysis machines and specialized dialysis nurses worldwide. For instance, according to the data published by the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI), in April 2022, hospitals in New York reported a shortage of ICU dialysis machines. This heightened demand has led significant pressure on key market players. Furthermore, Baxter’s renal care segment witnessed a 3.2% increase in its revenue in 2020 compared to the prior year and was valued at USD 3,757.0 million. The growth was mainly driven by higher sales of product for acute care treatment.

However, the market experienced slower growth in 2021, 2022, and 2023 due to the normalization of operations after the pandemic. Furthermore, in 2024, the market is expected to reach the growth rate of pre-pandemic levels.

Hemodialysis Equipment Market Trends

Growing Adoption of Home-Based Modality to Boost Market Growth

The prevalence of patients requiring Renal Replacement Therapies (RRTs) is increasing globally, and due to the unavailability of treatment, many of these patients die prematurely. In-center hemodialysis is the most commonly performed treatment globally. However, many patients find it unsuitable due to their fragile health conditions, time lost in travel, and difficulties ambulation. As a result, such patients find home-based dialysis machines more suitable. Moreover, the surge in awareness regarding the benefits of home-based modalities has enabled several manufacturers to increase their clinical research activities for introducing home-based machines.

  • For instance, in June 2021, Max@Home partnered with NephroPlus to launch home hemodialysis services. This partnership would boost the adoption of these products over the forecast period.

The increasing focus on developing and launching home-based machines is estimated to increase the equipment demand from 2024-2032.

The rapidly growing prevalence of kidney disorders, such as kidney failure and chronic kidney diseases, is the primary factor driving the growing adoption of hemodialysis equipment worldwide. For instance, according to the Fresenius Medical Care Annual Report 2022, around 4.8 million people suffered from chronic kidney failures in 2022, and this number is projected to exceed 6.5 million by 2033. Furthermore, the demand for products such as dialysate and machines is projected to rise due to the large patient pool for dialysis treatment. For instance, in 2022, approximately 3.9 million patients regularly underwent dialysis treatment worldwide. As a result, manufacturers are launching new equipment, fueling the growth of the global market.

  • For instance, in December 2020, Medtronic plc announced the U.S. commercial launch of the Carpediem Cardio-Renal Pediatric Dialysis Emergency Machine to treat acute kidney injury.

Such new product launches, along with the growing prevalence of kidney disorders, are projected to increase the patient population seeking dialysis treatment, thereby influencing the growth of the global market.

Rising Clinical Activities for Introduction of Technologically Advanced Products Boosts Market Growth

The increasing prevalence of various kidney-related disorders, such as end-stage renal diseases and chronic kidney diseases, has prompted healthcare providers to intensify their research and development activities to introduce technologically advanced equipment.

  • For instance, in May 2021, Kidney Research U.K., the largest kidney research charity in the U.K., in collaboration with IN-PART’s Discover platform, launched a Kidney MedTech competition to enhance dialysis treatment options that would significantly impact patients’ lives.

Additionally, several manufacturers are focusing on the development of cutting-edge equipment for the treatment of various kidney-related conditions.

  • For instance, as per the data published by Kidney Research U.K. in October 2023, the Kidney Research U.K.-funded team at the University of Edinburgh had reached the final step in creating a workable and wearable kidney.

Such product advancements, which offer enhanced safety features, are expected to increase the adoption of hemodialysis equipment globally.


High Costs and Adverse Effects Associated with These Equipment to Hamper Market Growth

Hemodialysis machines can potentially expose patients to harmful toxic compounds, according to the study revealed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (U.S. FDA). In addition, the U.S. FDA discovered specific dialysis machines that may lead to such exposure. For instance, Fresenius Medical Care dialysis machines, such as the 2008K2, 2008T, and 2008K model, caused potential exposure to toxic compounds such as Non-Dioxin-Like (NDL), Polychlorinated Biphenyl Acids (PCBAs), and NDL Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs). Furthermore, the U.S. FDA is working with manufacturers to collect and evaluate data to regulate the risk of exposure to NDL PCBs and NDL PCBAs in patients and developing strategies to address this issue.

Although dialysis is often essential for individuals with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), it can incur significant expenses.

  • For instance, as per the data published by TalktoMira, Inc. in January 2024, depending on the insurance status and the type of dialysis the patients are receiving, the costs can vary anywhere from USD 10,000 to USD 90,000 per annum. The average cost of in-center hemodialysis was reported to be nearly USD 72,000 to USD 88,000 per year.

The higher costs associated with the installation and maintenance of such equipment is hampering market growth. Moreover, infections associated with hemodialysis equipment are further expected to hamper the global hemodialysis equipment market growth to a certain extent.
