In 2021, the market for Dialysis worldwide was worth $77 billion US dollars. AMR Group projects that the market will reach US$ 109.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.8 percent between 2022 and 2031.

Industry Overview
Dialysis is a medical procedure that is used to treat patients with kidney failure. It involves the use of a machine to remove waste products and excess fluids from the blood when the kidneys are no longer able to perform this function on their own. The two main types of dialysis are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis is the most common type of dialysis and involves the use of an artificial kidney machine (dialyzer) to filter the blood outside of the body. The patient's blood is pumped through the dialyzer, which removes waste products and excess fluids, and then returned to the body. Peritoneal dialysis, on the other hand, uses the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneum) as a filter. A special solution (dialysate) is introduced into the abdomen through a catheter, and then drained out after a period of time, taking with it waste products and excess fluids. Dialysis is often used as a temporary treatment while a patient awaits a kidney transplant, but for some patients, it may be a long-term or permanent solution.

Market Dynamics
The global dialysis market is driven by various factors such as the growing prevalence of chronic kidney diseases, increasing aging population, technological advancements in the field of dialysis, and rising government initiatives to improve healthcare infrastructure. The demand for dialysis treatment is increasing due to the growing prevalence of chronic kidney diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. According to the National Kidney Foundation, more than 850 million people worldwide are affected by kidney diseases, and chronic kidney disease affects around 15% of the global population. This has led to an increase in the demand for dialysis treatment and has driven the growth of the market. The aging population is also a significant factor contributing to the growth of the dialysis market. As people age, their kidneys function less efficiently, leading to kidney diseases.

According to the United Nations, the global population aged 60 years and above is expected to reach 2.1 billion by 2050, up from 962 million in 2017. This increase in the aging population is expected to increase the demand for dialysis treatment. Technological advancements in the field of dialysis have also contributed to the growth of the market.
The development of portable and wearable dialysis machines has made it easier for patients to undergo treatment at home, thereby reducing the need for hospital visits. The introduction of new dialysis machines with advanced features such as online hemodiafiltration and improved safety features has also increased the adoption of dialysis treatment. The government initiatives to improve healthcare infrastructure have also contributed to the growth of the market. Governments in various countries are investing in the development of healthcare infrastructure and providing funding for the treatment of chronic kidney diseases. For instance, in India, the government provides financial assistance for dialysis treatment through the National Health Mission. However, the high cost of dialysis treatment and the risks associated with the procedure may hinder the growth of the market. The lack of skilled professionals and the shortage of dialysis centers in rural areas may also restrain market growth.

COVID Impact
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the dialysis market. With the spread of the virus, there has been a surge in the number of patients requiring dialysis due to acute kidney injury caused by the virus. This has led to an increased demand for dialysis machines, supplies, and services. The pandemic has also disrupted the supply chain, causing shortages of critical components and raw materials. Moreover, the pandemic has resulted in reduced patient visits to dialysis centers due to the fear of exposure to the virus. As a result, the adoption of home dialysis systems has increased. In addition, many healthcare facilities have postponed non-essential surgeries, which has affected the demand for dialysis machines and supplies used during these surgeries.

Regional Trend
The global dialysis market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa regions for regional analysis. North America dominates the dialysis market owing to the high prevalence of kidney diseases, technological advancements, and increasing R&D investments. According to the National Kidney Foundation, approximately 37 million people in the US are suffering from chronic kidney diseases. The availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure and favorable reimbursement policies in the region also contribute to the growth of the market. Europe is the second-largest market for dialysis owing to the presence of a large geriatric population and increasing awareness regarding kidney disorders. The high incidence of diabetes and hypertension in the region is also contributing to market growth.

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to increasing healthcare expenditure, rising incidence of kidney diseases, and improving healthcare infrastructure. The presence of a large population in the region also offers significant growth opportunities for the market. Latin America and the Middle East & Africa regions are also expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to increasing healthcare investments and improving healthcare infrastructure in these regions. However, the high cost of dialysis treatment and lack of awareness regarding kidney disorders may hinder market growth in these regions.

Competitive Landscape
The dialysis market is highly competitive and fragmented, with a large number of players operating in the market. Some of the key players in the market include Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KGaA, Baxter International Inc., DaVita Inc., B. Braun Melsungen AG, Nipro Corporation, Asahi Kasei Corporation, Nikkiso Co., Ltd., NxStage Medical, Inc., and Medtronic plc.
