Hemodialysis Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share,
Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Hemodialysis is a process that uses artificial membrane to remove waste,
such as urea, from the blood, restore proper balance of electrolytes in the
blood, and eliminate extra fluid from the body. When kidney function goes
below 10% to 15%, it is no longer able to filter blood. This causes toxins to
build up in the body along with excess fluid. Hemodialysis is used to remove
these toxins. It is an effective treatment for those with end stage renal disease.
There are different types of hemodialysis. In-center hemodialysis is
performed in hospitals or dialysis centers. Home hemodialysis is done at
home three days a week in presence of a technician. Daily home
hemodialysis is done at home five to seven days a week. Nocturnal home
hemodialysis is done overnight in six to eight hours.
According to the National Kidney Foundation, 10% of the global population
is affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD). Over 2 million people currently
receive treatment with dialysis or a kidney transplant. Of these 2 million
people receive treatment for kidney failure, the majority are treated in only
five countries: the U.S., Japan, Germany, Brazil, and Italy. These five
countries represent only 12% of the world’s population. Only 20% are treated
in about 100 developing countries which make up over 50% of the world’s
population. According to 2010 Global Burden of Disease study, chronic
kidney disease was ranked 27th in the list of causes of total number of deaths
worldwide in 1990, but rose to 18th in 2010. According to the National
Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases Health Information
Center, over 661,000 people in the U.S. have kidney failure. Of these,
468,000 individuals are on dialysis, and roughly 193,000 live with a
functioning kidney transplant. In 2013, 88.2% of patients began renal
replacement therapy with hemodialysis, 9.0% started with peritoneal dialysis,
and 2.6% received preemptive kidney transplant. As of 2013, 63.7% of all
ESRD patients were receiving hemodialysis therapy, 6.8% were being treated
with peritoneal dialysis, and 29.2% had a functioning kidney transplant.
