Blood Purification Equipment Market Overview:
Blood purification is a technique that involves withdrawal of blood from patient’s body into a device or an equipment to remove impurities and pump it back intothe body. As blood purification plays a significant role in several kidney and blood related disorders, the market is supposedly to witness a considerable growth during the forecast period. Advancements in dialysis and filtration techniques coupled with adsorption procedures have positively impacted the adoption of these equipment in numerous critical treatments. Blood purification devices majorly find their usage in organ or renal failures, immune-metabolic disorders and plasmapheresis. The global blood purification equipment market size was evaluated at $14,627.56 million in 2019, and is estimated to garner $23,939.14 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period.
Surge in prevalence of metabolic & immune disorders such as kidney failures, increase in incidences of diabetes & hypertension, along with overall rise in geriatric population who are more susceptible to kidney related diseases across the globe are some of the factors anticipated to impel the growth of the blood purification equipment market. In addition, upsurge in advancements associated with blood purification techniques, hematology and pathophysiology of diseases is expected to further supplement the market growth in coming years. On the contrary, higher costs of the equipment and risks accompanying the blood purification procedures may hinder the growth of the blood purification equipment market in near future.
COVID-19 resulted in nationwide lockdowns and transport-trade restrictions, thereby impacting every industry vertical across the globe. Likewise, the blood purification equipment market is also affected by the pandemic. Theblood purification equipmentindustry was currently facing newer challenges to cope up with the demand and supply of blood purification components& consumables required for proper functioning of the equipment. In addition, inconsistent and interrupted supply chain activities and unavailability of human resources impacted the market growth rate further. On the other hand, COVID-19 is predicted to have a robust impact on the global blood purification equipment market growth. As the restrictions are easing globally, the market is expected to gain traction in coming years, owing to surge in R&D practices focused on potential uses of blood purification as a method to limit the transmission of COVID-19 infection. Several companies have approached the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (U.S. FDA) for filing emergency use authorization (EUA) in order to use their blood purification equipment for treating patients with COVID-19. Recently, in April 2020, Baxter International Inc. received a EUA for its Oxiris filter that is used in CRRT equipment, PrisMax and Prismaflex systems. The company is maximizing its production of blood purification machines and systems in order to address unprecedented surges in the demand for these blood purification devices in response to combat COVID-19. Therefore, the pandemic is projected to have a positive impact on the blood purification equipmentmarket growth.
Product Type Segment Review
Based on product type, the market is bifurcated into portable and stationary. Portable segment is anticipated to be the largest growing segment over the analysis period. This is majorly attributed to the advantages offered by portable blood purification equipment such as lesser space utilization and ease of movement, especially in critical care units. Thus, these are most widely preferred by healthcare professionals for treating patients, thereby, supplementing the market growth.
By Product Type
Portable segment held a dominant position in 2019 and would continue to maintain the lead over the forecast period.
Indication Segment Review
Based on indication, the blood purification equipment market can be divided into sepsis,renal diseases, and others.In 2019, the renal disease segment generated the highest revenue and is predicted to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to rise in incidences of renal disorders globally. For instance, as per data published by the International Society of Nephrology, in 2021, there are estimated to be approximately 13.3 million cases of acute kidney injury (AKI) each year and around 1.7 million deaths. Since dialysis plays a critical role in the treatment of kidney diseases, this has greatly stimulated the demand for extracorporeal blood purification techniques and dialysis treatments in AKI torestore metabolite balance in blood and decrease the manifestation of toxicosis, thereby driving the growth of the blood purification equipment market.
Renal Diseases segment is expected to be the most profitable segment in 2019.
End User Segment Review
Based on end user, the global blood purification equipment market is segmented into hospitals and clinics, dialysis centers and others.The dialysis centers held a dominant position in the end user segment in 2019. This growth is due to patient preference to receive dialysis treatments through services provided by dialysis centers. One of the advantages of in-center dialysis is that a patient does not require any medical training as healthcare professionals’ carry about majority of tasks making it convenient for patients by avoiding any errors during the treatment. However, treatments at dialysis centers require a longer commitment from patients as most of the time is spent at the centers during dialysis sessions. Thus, the number of dialysis patients across the world opting for blood purification procedures at dialysis centers is predicted to increase over the next few years, ultimately driving the growth of blood purification equipment market.
By End User
Dialysis Centers segment held a dominant position in 2019 and would continue to maintain the lead over the forecast period.
Region segment review
With increase in prevalence of CKDs and ESRDs among the Americans, the demand for dialysis is higher in the region. North America is expected to maintain its second dominant position during the forecast period due to the availability of technologically advanced equipment in critical care units, rise of awareness about blood purification processes among the patient population, and well-established healthcare infrastructure in the region. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific holds a major share in the market and represents lucrative opportunities for players operating in the blood purification equipment market, attributable to its large population base along with several chronic & lifestyle diseases and rapidly rising prevalence of ESRDs. For instance, as per data published by the American Society of Nephrology, in 2017, there were over 130,000 ESRD patients receiving dialysis in India alone and the prevalence of the disease is increasing by about 232 per million population. Likewise, Asia-Pacific is also burdened with chronic & lifestyle conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, chronic glomerulonephritis, and autoimmune diseases, owing to low gross domestic products in developing nations, lower monetary allocations for health care, and larger number of patients below the poverty line, resulting in suboptimal treatment outcomes. Overall, it is projected that the need for blood purification in developing countries of Asia-Pacific would rise sharply in the coming years, reaching higher levels than American and European countries. This is majorly attributed to larger number of undiagnosed patients with kidney related disorders and rise in market penetration by various pharmaceutical companies to reach the untapped regions for geographical expansion.
Asia-Pacific was holding a dominant position in 2019 and would continue to maintain the lead over the analysis period.
