Kidney Dialysis Equipment Helps Improve Kidney Health and Saves Lives

Kidney dialysis equipment helps maintain kidney functions and avoids severe health complications by filtering out wastes and excess fluids from patients suffering from chronic kidney ailments or end-stage renal failures. Dialysis machines contain precision built components and consumables to extract toxins from blood outside the body via a semi-permeable membrane while returning cleansed blood to the patient. Being lifesaving devices, dialysis products are witnessing growth with rising incidence of kidney diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and chronic glomerulonephritis.

The global kidney dialysis equipment market is estimated to be valued at US$ 16,874.5 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
