Dialysis is the process of removing excess water and waste from the blood by artificial means, primarily in cases of renal failure. It is also used for patients with acute disturbances in kidney function or chronic kidney disease. The aim of this report is to provide an insight of the market scenario of dialysis. This report discusses the products and services available to provide an understanding of current industrial status.
The growing patient population, with end stage renal diseases, and the increase in use of dialysis for their treatment are driving the growth in this market. Also, the technological advancements and lesser preference for kidney transplantation are propelling market growth for dialysis. However, the risks associated with dialysis and inadequate reimbursement facilities are limiting the growth of this market. The technological improvements, leading to increase in number of dialysis centers, and the emerging economies would provide opportunities for growth of this market.
