Global Dialysis Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global dialysis market is estimated to be worth USD 184.05 billion by 2029 from USD 124.94 billion in 2024, registering a CAGR of 8.16% during the forecast period.

Dialysis is a process that removes waste products and excess fluids from the blood when the kidney stops working. As a result, dialysis increases the life span of kidney-affected patients. Usually, life expectance with the process may vary from person to person between 5-10 years, and some patients have lived up to 30 years with the assistance of dialysis.


The growing patient population suffering from kidney failure and ESRD is primarily accelerating the growth of the dialysis market across the world.

The prevalence of kidney failure and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has exploded in intensive care units in hospitals around the world, creating a worrying shortage of dialysis machines and even dialysis solutions. The disease is spreading rapidly in more than 99 countries around the world. Worldwide, approximately 2 million people are affected by ESRD each year. In addition, the growing geriatric population is increasing the number of older people with chronic illnesses who suffer from complications that can include kidney problems. According to a 2020 annual report from the US Kidney Data System, Taiwan, and Malaysia have the highest incidence of treated ESRD in the 45 to 65 age group and the 75 and over age group. Due to the increase in the number of patients, local government authorities have increased the number of dialysis centers provided by public or private funds. The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and increased life expectancy will continue to drive the market demand for dialysis. Another factor influencing the market's growth is the expansion of health infrastructure in all countries. 

Supportive government initiatives and increased awareness of kidney disorders and their treatment modalities are also expected to drive the market during the forecast period. The evolution of technologically advanced dialysis equipment and kidney dialysis are vital factors impacting the dialysis market. Increased awareness of kidney problems and the types of treatments decreased complications. An increasing number of dialysis centers and hospitals in developing countries, combined with increasing patient treatments, is expected to drive the evolution of new dialysis equipment to drive the dialysis market during the forecast period.


Limited access to dialysis services among developing and underdeveloped countries is diluting the overall growth rate of the dialysis market. High costs associated with dialysis treatment are another notable factor hampering the market growth. Many patients in underdeveloped and developing countries do not have the financial capability to afford dialysis, which is limiting the adoption of dialysis services and hindering market growth. Technical challenges associated with dialysis machines and the lack of skilled professionals that can perform dialysis operations are further impeding the market growth. Alternative treatment options such as kidney transplantation procedures are reducing the demand for dialysis services and negatively resulting in market growth. Regulatory barriers and side effects associated with dialysis services are further showcasing a negative impact on the growth rate of the global dialysis market. Factors such as limited or inadequate insurance coverage, lack of reliable infrastructure, such as stable electricity supply and clean water, and poor awareness levels among people regarding kidney diseases and dialysis services are further anticipated to impact the growth rate of the global dialysis market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global dialysis market 

The growing burden of acute kidney injury (AKI) associated with COVID-19 is increasing as the number of older people infected with the virus spreads. At the start of the pandemic, AKI's COVID-19 risk was estimated to be 2.3% to 9.1%. Currently, incidence rates have increased by over 18.5%, focusing on managing kidney failure in patients with COVID-19 plus respiratory failure. People on dialysis must visit clinics or hospitals 2-3 times a week, with concerns that patients may be infected with the coronavirus. With the spread of the COVID-19 virus, home dialysis devices are in more demand among patients. Hence, the growth rate of dialysis market is growing for the next few years.
