The top three emerging trends driving the peritoneal dialysis market
according to Technavio healthcare
and life sciences
research analysts are:

  • Rising demand for home PD treatment
  • Growing demand for assisted automated peritoneal dialysis (AAPD)
  • Huge growth potential in emerging markets

Rising demand for home PD treatment

“End-stage renal-disease patients find comfort in receiving PD
treatment in a home setting. Once the patient understands the dialysis
procedure, they will be guided on the usage based on individual needs.
Various studies have shown that
bodes well on the psychological well-being of the patient, along with
offering greater flexibility and better management of their time
says Bharath Palada, one of the lead market research analysts at
Technavio for medical

After the slight dip in the home PD market in the 1980s due to the
increase in number of patients commencing renal replacement therapy
(RRT), the market has been showing consistent growth. The technical
simplicity of PD allows patients to perform dialysis even while
travelling. Additionally, PD offers increased autonomy and independence
to individuals in every respect compared to facility hemodialysis
(HD). This is reflected in the higher utilization rate of home PD when
compared to facility HD.

Growing demand for assisted automated peritoneal dialysis (aAPD)

The growth in automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) is mainly due to the
positive response of the PD population, resulting in an increased demand
for the technology in the market forecast period. Assisted APD (aApd) is
a treatment for aging individuals requiring renal replacement therapy.
This treatment is increasingly getting recognized amongst a distinct
dialysis modality which has lesser chances for complications that would
be expected in dialysis patients.

Most of the aAPD centers have demonstrated the viability and safety of
assistance for PD treatment even in physically dependent patient’s house
by the district or private nurses. The growing demand for assisted
automated peritoneal dialysis is therefore expected to boost the
peritoneal dialysis market during the forecast period.

Huge growth potential in emerging markets

Emerging countries such as China, India, South Korea, and Thailand have
a growing older population but have limited awareness about PD. However,
the governments of these countries are making active efforts to improve healthcare
infrastructures, which will greatly benefit the market. Individuals
opting for these benefits have pushed the vendors to come up with new
technologies. The demand from the emerging markets has led to an
increased competition among vendors which ensures the availability of
the most efficient treatments at reasonable costs.

The renal dialysis industry is concentrating on innovative advances
in technology that will aid in the development of various types of
dialysis treatment and equipment at reasonable costs. This will lead to
a rise in the development of advanced PD product by top vendors in the
emerging markets
,” says Bharath.
