The World Market for Dialysis Equipment and Services (United States, Japan, UK, Germany, France, Italy, India, China, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Russia and Other Nations)

The dialysis industry enjoys a unique place in the healthcare sector with a comparatively small patient base but large revenue base for needed services.
