Dialysis centers are expected to perform well over the five years to 2018, largely due to inelastic demand for their services. The only substitute available for dialysis treatment is a kidney transplant, which typically entails many years of waiting and uncertainty. Growth in the industry grew significantly during the period because of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which expanded healthcare coverage in the United States. However, the increase in government payouts is also expected to dampen industry profit, as payments from the government typically take longer to receive. Over the five years to 2023, IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will expand due to rising federal funding for Medicare and Medicaid and an aging population. Additionally, technological investments are expected to increase as centers expand their capacity to handle increasing patient volumes.
