Kidney Dialysis Equipment and Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – Dialysis industry is a multi-billion dollar robust business in the healthcare sector. Global dialysis market offers products and services to worldwide patients suffering from renal ailments. Along with the rapid rise in renal diseases and associated complications, the availability of advanced treatment modes and facilities is also witnessing substantial improvement. Additionally, developing markets of Asia, Africa and Latin America are likely to present vast potential for growth and development, due to a large unexploited market, a huge population base, ever increasing demand and improving infrastructure facilities. Growth pattern in the dialysis market is dependent on the number of users requiring the products and services for renal diseases. Other factors such as efficient distribution network, effective dialysis management, greater awareness and faster service provision are expected to drive growth.
Though the global macroeconomic volatility continues to trigger imbalance across the healthcare industry, especially with the developed countries reeling under budgetary pressures, the dialysis market has been relatively immune to the ongoing turmoil. An aging population and the dialysis industry’s stable and non-cyclical characteristic imply that the sector remains relatively unaffected by the adverse economic conditions, which have crippled majority of the industrial sectors. Despite a temporary deceleration in growth during 2008 and 2009, the dialysis industry on the whole remained quite resilient. This can be primarily attributed to the continuous rise in the number of patients suffering from chronic kidney failure, and the sustained efforts being made by governments across the world to provide adequate healthcare to this expanding patient population. Another factor that helped the industry to tide over the economic slowdown is its high-value customer base. Despite being comparatively smaller in size, the industry’s customer base has continuously been accredited with lending stability to the industry, thereby making it relatively immune to cyclical effects of economics. However the squeeze in healthcare budgets across the developed markets such the US and Europe is expected lead to contraction in service revenues owing to relative increase in number of government based patients as against commercial patients.
As stated by the new market research report on Kidney Dialysis Equipment and Supplies, the US represents the single largest regional market worldwide, followed by Japan. The US market for dialysis products is led by the significantly higher prevalence of renal failure cases, a phenomenon in the developed countries, which is mainly attributed to the dietary habits of people in these regions. Hypertension and diabetes take lead as prominent causes of ESRD in the US. Asia-Pacific market for kidney dialysis equipment and supplies is expected to witness the fastest growth with value sales forecast to grow at a compounded annual rate of 6.9% over the analysis period, driven by steady economic growth in developing countries, particularly China and India, which represents the leading nations in terms of population. Based on the anticipated growth in the patient population, developing regions are likely to witness higher requirement of dialysis treatment, offering vast growth opportunities for a wide spectrum of dialysis products and services.
Hemodialysis continues to remain the most preferred treatment option among dialysis patients. The largest number of patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment exists in the US followed by Japan, and Europe. In-facility hemodialysis is the leading mode of receiving treatment. The other three modes of dialysis therapy include CAPD, APD, and home hemodialysis. Of late, hemodialysis machines have been witnessing numerous technology developments and innovations. Going ahead, the dialysis industry is expected to further witness high levels of innovation concerning hemodialysis machines.
Peritoneal dialysis equipment and supplies market is also expected to witness growth in the coming years, driven by rising awareness about the procedure and improvements in the technology arena; rising ESRD incidence; and the easy-to-use and self-administrable characteristic of peritoneal dialysis. Resultantly, number of nephrologists and nurses with expertise in the field of peritoneal dialysis continues to expand, which is likely to translate into increased numbers of procedural volume for the technique. The US continues to be a major market for peritoneal dialysis procedures. Growing demand for home-based care and the increasing use of automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) is expected to fuel growth in the domestic PD market. Brazil, China and Japan are among the other leading users of PD method.
The global kidney dialysis supplies and equipment market is dominated by a few large multinational companies, while the remaining market comprises smaller players and companies with regional presence. Key players profiled in the report include Asahi Kasei Kuraray Medical Co. Ltd., Baxter International Inc., B. Braun Melsungen AG, DaVita Inc., Diaverum, Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co.
