Hemodialysis is a clinical process that is used to clean the blood of patients suffering from kidney dysfunctions. A special filter and dialysis machine, known as a dialyzer is utilized in the procedure to remove the waste material such as free water, creatinine, and urea from blood in case of kidney failure. The hemodialysis is utilized for exchanging blood from and to a dialysis machine and patient. They are also utilized when patients need long-term hemodialysis. The chronic dialysis catheters include a dacron cuff that goes from below the skin into the body.
One of the major factors driving the growth of the global chronic hemodialysis catheter market is the growing popularity of antimicrobial-coated hemodialysis catheters among patients. A large number of people are suffering from hypertension, diabetes, and chronic kidney disorders. Also, people are becoming more aware of hemodialysis treatments due to the rising number of in-center dialysis clinics across the globe. All these factors will vigorously propel the growth of the global chronic hemodialysis catheter market during the forecast period. However, the increasing number of favorable medical reimbursement policies from the government is also supporting the growth by providing financial assistance to the patients.
The global chronic hemodialysis catheter market can be segmented into end-user, material, type of tip, and region.
By end-users, the market can be segmented into home dialysis and in-center dialysis.
By material, the market can be segmented into polyurethane and silicone. The polyurethane material segment holds the largest share in the global chronic hemodialysis catheter market due to several associated advantages like bigger inner diameter and good tensile softness & strength.
By type of tip, the market can be segmented into symmetric tip catheters, split-tip, step tips, and others. The step tip segment accounts for the largest share in the global chronic hemodialysis catheter market due to the continuous technological advancements in the field of step catheters and dialysis equipment.
Asia Pacific accounts for the largest share in the global chronic hemodialysis catheter market due to the growing prevalence of chronic kidney disorders, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and hypertension in the region. Also, the rapidly growing population along with the surging demand for chronic dialysis catheters will promulgate the growth of the regional market during the forecast period.
Some of the significant players in the global chronic hemodialysis catheter market are B. Braun Holding GmbH & Co. KG, Nikkiso Co. Ltd., Medtronic Plc., Becton, Medical Components, Inc., Nipro Medical Corporation, Fresenius SE, and Co. KGaA, Teleflex Incorporated, Dickinson and Company, Baxter International Inc., and AngioDynamics, Inc. To cite, AngioDynamics has recently got approval from FDI for using BioFlo technology. The DuraMax Dialysis Catheter manufactured with BioFlo technology has further strengthened their position worldwide.
