Growing Incidence of Chronic Kidney Disorders to Spur the Dialysis Catheter Market

Posted on: Jul-2017 | By: 9Dimen Group | Medical Devices

A dialysis catheter is a tool needed to offer vascular access to the dialysis device for conducting dialysis. The catheter has 2 distinct tubes, one of which carries blood to the dialysis machine from a patient, and the other assists in returning the blood to the body. This tool can be utilized for short-term as well as long-term access; nonetheless, it is not suggested for long-term access. The newest trend that is helping the dialysis catheter market to grow  is the rising use of enhanced materials in these devices. These devices produced by vendors are fabricated from a superior material such as polycarbonates or polyurethanes. Carbothane is one such substance that is tolerant to chemicals such as peroxide, alcohol, or iodine preventing deterioration of the device and hence, increases its durability.

Growing incidence of chronic kidney disorders (CKDs)

The rising occurrence of CKDs will elevate the requirement for dialysis catheters worldwide. The body’s homeostasis is negatively influenced by the sedentary lifestyle, making individuals more vulnerable to several disorders such as diabetes, CVDs, urology disorders, end-stage renal disease, and other chronic ailments. Diabetes and High blood pressure are the 2 chief reasons behind the increasing events of CKD.

Rising requirement for anti-microbial coated dialysis catheters

Patients undergoing dialysis are usually susceptible to infections. Patient affected with CKDs have weakened the immune system and are more prone to infections. Hemodialysis patients are at greater infection risk owing to the recurrent usage of needles or catheters for accessing the bloodstream. Hence, retailers have developed numerous antimicrobial catheters to decrease the infection risk and avoid thrombosis.

Advancements in technology

Dialysis catheters play an important part in dialysis treatment for permanent as well as temporary vascular access, where chronic and acute dialysis catheters are utilized on the basis of the condition of a patient. Companies have continuously focused on enhancing the catheters since past few years in terms of material used and design to decrease the rate of infections, reduce the malfunctioning of the device, and enhance long-term efficiency. Moreover, the developments in tip design have motivated the improvement of catheters with better longevity and efficiency. Hence, the rising technological advancements are projected to fuel the growth of the market.
