US Market Report for Dialysis Machines 2017 - Home Hemodialysis Patient Population will Grow at a CAGR of 7.4% - Research and Markets

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

The total dialysis patient population is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3% over the forecast period. The largest dialysis patient population, in-center hemodialysis, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.6%. The home hemodialysis patient population will grow at a CAGR of 7.4%, which will serve to drive growth of the overall dialysis market.

In-center hemodialysis accounted for the vast majority of the hemodialysis machine market, a trend that will continue over the forecast period. In-center treatment has been the standard for many years and has two major advantages over home-hemodialysis. The first advantage is that it is less costly as a result of not having to purchase the hemodialysis machine. The second advantage is that more of the care is taken out of the hands of the patient and placed with trained professionals that operate in-center. The sale of home hemodialysis machines will come primarily by new patients opting for the convenience of performing their dialysis treatments at home.

Due to the small size of the home-hemodialysis market in comparison to the total dialysis market, there is a lot of room for growth. Increased penetration of the dialysis market will be vital to the growth of the home hemodialysis market. Similar to home hemodialysis, the peritoneal dialysis market is small with high growth potential.

Despite the push from medical professionals, the transition of patients from in-center to home dialysis care is expected to have a slow uptake through to 2020. The safety advantages perceived at centers combined with limitations on the number of dialysis patients eligible for home treatments is projected to keep growth rates moderate.
