“Growth in this market will be driven by a strong shift away from chemical water treatment systems."
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) January 22, 2015
According to a report by iData Research (http://www.idataresearch.com), water treatment dialysis system market growth will be driven by a shift toward heat disinfectant systems, which command much higher prices than alternative chemical disinfectant systems. Heat disinfectant system sales will grow to account for more than 90% of the water treatment system market by 2020.
“Growth in this market will be driven by a strong shift away from chemical water treatment systems,” explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. “Although heat disinfectant systems are often much more costly to install initially, their operating costs, reduced labor requirements and quality of water treatment will continue to result in strong market growth.”
Other key findings from the 2014 edition of the iData Research report entitled U.S. Market for Dialysis Equipment and Concentrates:
Market Shift Due to Regulations
Stricter regulations and enforcement have increased the need for products that can provide the highest level of quality assurance without demanding frequent servicing and labor hours. This has led dialysis centers to switch to heat-based water treatment systems, which offer adequate treatment with less variability or labor input than their chemical counterparts.
Peritoneal dialysis does not require water treatment systems. Thus, any trend toward peritoneal dialysis will eliminate patients from requiring hemodialysis treatments and the use of water treatment systems. Strong growth in the prevalence of peritoneal dialysis will create a drop in demand for hemodialysis products and limited growth in the markets for those products.
Leading Water Treatment Dialysis System Market Competitors
In 2014, MarCor was the dominant player in both the central and portable system market, with heat and chemical options for both. MarCor has strengthened their presence in the market by way of strategic acquisitions and releasing high-quality products. As new clinics open and existing clinics replace their existing water treatment systems, MarCor will benefit by offering the superior and more expensive water treatment systems.
