The major factors for the growth of the hemodialysis market include the rising number of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients and the increasing incidence of diabetes and hypertension.
The rise in the number of ESRD and shortage in the availability of kidneys for transplant expected to boost the growth of the market. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition that causes reduced kidney function over a period of time. It may develop over many years and lead to end-stage kidney (or renal) disease (ESRD). It has become an enormous public health issue that continues to rise.

Furthermore, as per the 2016 report on Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease, diabetes causes 44% of all new cases of kidney failure. Thus, owing to the rising burden of kidney failures there will be a huge demand for hemodialysis equipment resulting in high growth of the market.
