Renal dialysis equipment is used for artificial blood purification of end stage renal disease (ESRD) and for acute kidney injury (AKI). The dialysis equipment can be used either at home or in dialysis centres. It was observed that around the world, 2.9 million patients are suffering from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) which is the most widespread form of kidney disease. It is the seventh leading cause of death globally along with diabetes, obesity and aged population. With the increase in the number of ESRD patient population worldwide, there is a need to make various modalities of dialysis equipment available. At present, peritoneal dialysis (PD) is being used across various countries for dialysis procedures globally.
The major factors affecting the renal dialysis equipment are manufacturing of dialysis equipment, devices, manufacture dialysate and peritoneal dialysis solutions, manufacture and supply dialysis accessories such as dialyzers, fistula needles, blood tubing and catheters and manage dialysis centers. The global renal dialysis equipment market is spread across the U.S., Canada, Japan, Europe (Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the UK), Brazil, China, India and the rest of the world. The renal dialysis equipment and accessories market is categorised into four categories such as HD equipment, PD solutions, Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) systems, and dialysis accessories.
According to the study “Spain Renal Dialysis Equipment Market Outlook to 2023”, the dialyzer market is expected to grow at steady rate due to low preference for kidney transplantations. Now-a-days, kidney transplantation is associated with many complications such as rejection due to blood group, antibodies of the donor, the unmatched recipient and post-treatment complications. Therefore, majority of the patients are adopting and demanding for in-center or home dialysis machines. Global population awareness about renal disorders, availability of better treatment options, increase in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) population has encouraged the development and sales of the renal dialysis equipment. The renal dialyzer equipments are of two types: high-flux dialyzers and low-flux dialyzers. The high-flux dialyzer allows large-sized or middle-sized molecules to pass through the dialysis membrane and prevents the accidental removal of the proteins from the blood. It also enables faster removal of toxins, improved dialysis efficiency, and acts quickly during dialysis. Majority of the patients prefer in-center dialysis procedure over home dialysis due to availability of more medical care.
A general study on Spanish population aged between 20 years or older was carried out that revealed collected variables such as age, gender, ethnicity, weight, height, body mass index, blood pressure and clinical history such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipemia, cardiovascular disease, gout, renal lithiasis, CKD, transplant. Majority of the Spanish population conferment that they were associated with smoking habits, alcohol consumption, and drug abuse. After a research on the collected blood samples it was concluded that majority of the blood samples indicated renal function disorders in the Spanish population aged 20 years or older at a national level.
The leading players in Spain’s renal dialysis equipment are Elekta AB, Natus Medical Incorporated, Nihon Kohden Corp, Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp, DePuy Synthes Inc, Sophysa SA, Micromed SpA and Neurosoft. The various renal dialysis equipment available in Spain are Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy Machines, Dialysates, Dialysis Accessories, Hemodialysis Machines, Peritoneal Dialysis Equipment and Peritoneal Dialysis Solutions.
Global corporate level companies operating within the Spain Renal Dialysis Equipment market are Baxter International Inc, Fresenius Medical Care AG Co KGaA, Medtronic plc, Asahi Kasei Corp and C. R. Bard Inc. Spain renal dialysis equipment also includes Electromyographs (EMG), Electroencephelographs (EEG), ICP Monitoring Devices, Magnetoencephalographs and Transcranial Dopplers.
It was observed that due to the increasing in the lifestyle and renal diseases in Spain, there is a demand for renal dialysis equipment in the country. Also, the recent increase in infectious diseases has initiating renal disorders and is boosting the growth in renal dialyzer equipment market in Spain. It was observed that there will be a steady growth in the renal dialysis equipment along with its supporting equipment over the coming years.
