Global Dialysis Catheters Market 2017-2021
About Dialysis Catheters
Dialysis Catheter provides vascular access to the dialysis equipment for carrying out the procedure. These catheters have two separate tubes or dual-lumen, where the arterial port helps the blood flow out to the dialysis machine and the venous port returns the blood to the body. These devices can be used for both long-term and short-term access. However, long-term usage is not recommended.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global dialysis catheters market to grow at a CAGR of 3.52% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Dialysis Catheters Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global dialysis catheters market: AngioDynamics, Medtronic, C. R. Bard, Medical Components, and Fresenius Medical Care.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Argon Medical Devices, Baxter International, Cook Medical, DaVita, ENDOCOR, Foshan Special Medical, Jiangxi Sanxin Medtec, Kimal, Merit Medical Systems, Navilyst Medical, NIPRO Medical, Pls minimally invasive interventional medical, shenzhen Shunmei Medical Technology, and Teleflex.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing usage of advanced materials in dialysis catheters. The dialysis catheters manufactured by vendors are made of advanced material such as polyurethanes/polycarbonates. Carbothane is one such material that is resistant to chemicals such as iodine, peroxide, or alcohol preventing degrading of catheter and thereby increasing its longevity. For instance, Medtronic introduced MAHURKAR Chronic Carbothane catheter, which facilitates high-flow rates with low venous and arterial pressures and it falls under the category of long-term dialysis catheter. Dialysis catheters made with carbothane provides superior kink resistance and facilitates a simple single-insertion technique.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising prevalence of CKDs. The growing prevalence of CKDs will increase the demand for dialysis catheters globally. A sedentary lifestyle negatively affects the homeostasis of the body, making people susceptible to many disorders such as CVDs, diabetes, ESRD, urology disorders, and other chronic illnesses. High blood pressure and diabetes are the two main causes behind the rising cases of CKD. Almost two-third of the CKD patients develop this disorder due to conditions such as glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease, malformations, lupus, obstructions and repeated urinary infections.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is risks and complications associated with dialysis catheters. Dialysis catheters are associated with vein thrombosis that can lead to pulmonary embolism and in some cases, it may prove to be fatal as well. In thrombosis, the ﬁbrin sheath may get occluded resulting in an intraluminal occlusion that may progress to a mural thrombosis at the tip of the catheter. There is also a risk of incidence of catheter-associated bloodstream infections (CABSI) in patients who undergo catheter insertions.
