Report: Global Market for Dialysis Care Nears 90 Billion Dollars

NEW YORK, April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The market for dialysis products and services reached $89.8 billion in 2014, according to Kalorama Information. The healthcare market research firm said that the expansion of the dialysis industry has resulted in improvements in the overall mortality rates of the dialysis patients with the marked reduction in adjusted 1-year death rates for dialysis patients across the world. However, the overall cost of dialysis care has increased substantially (both outpatient and inpatient care costs), while reimbursement rates have remained the same or have been adjusted slightly. The finding was made in Kalorama Information's fourth report on the dialysis market since 2009, World Market for Dialysis Equipment and Services.

The healthcare market research firm says that a large number of competitors share in that market - the dialysis products and services market is a highly fragmented. Global players account for only a fraction of the total market and rest is occupied by the regional companies and government providers. Fresenius is the leader in this market and Kalorama believes will continue to dominate the scene owing to its vast product line and vertical integration into lucrative and big dialysis care segment.  

"Companies with dialysis centers have made a substantial leap in terms of revenues, but they've been able to benefit from that ownership" said Bruce Carlson, Publisher of Kalorama Information. "Owning centers/clinics has helped these companies in increasing their clout in product markets."

Products include dialysis machines as well as the related tubing and fistulas. Kalorama breaks out product and services markets in its report and makes projections for both. 

Conditions such as increasing diabetes are a driver of both markets. According to Kalorama's report, the number of people developing diabetes around the globe is expected to continue to rise and increases are occurring in almost every country around the world. The current diagnosed figure is expected to climb from 370 million people currently living with diabetes to a number expected to exceed 550 million by 2030.  Approximately 80% of the current cases of diabetes are in low or middle income countries.

"Because diabetes unfortunately is one of the leading causes of ESRD, developing nations are expected to have a significant demand for dialysis therapy over the next 20 years," Carlson said.  "Our report goes into country-level analysis of those markets."

World Market for Dialysis Equipment and Services (United States, Japan, UK, Germany, France, Italy, India, China, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Russia and Other Nations) contains detailed reporting on markets related to dialysis, equipment and the provision of services in dialysis care centers and hospitals.  Market size and growth projections are provided for 22 countries.  Worldwide market share is computed and major companies in the market are reviewed.  The report can be obtained at
