US Market Report for Water Treatment Report 2017: Sales Continue to Shift to Portable Systems - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Water Treatment 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.

Growth in unit sales for the total water treatment system market will be driven by a transition towards heat disinfectant systems over the forecast period. Heat based systems command much higher prices than the alternative chemical disinfectant systems. Despite the overall increasing unit sales and increased sales of the higher priced heat based systems, the ASP of heat based systems is falling at a rate where it is unable to maintain the overall market value. The market value is shrinking due to a combination of falling prices as well as the shift from central disinfectant water treatment systems to less expensive portable disinfectant water treatment systems.

As more patients choose to outfit for home dialysis, sales will continue to shift to portable systems with a lower price point than central systems. To account for the continued growth in dialysis patients, the number of dialysis centers has also increased dramatically over the last decade.

Although expansion in the number of dialysis centers has slowed, it will continue to increase in order to service the growing patient population. Each new dialysis center will require the installation of a central water treatment system, and often one or more portable systems. Not only will new centers require water treatment systems, many existing centers require their old water treatment system to be replaced.
