The dialysis catheter market is composed of short-term (acute) hemodialysis, long-term (chronic) hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheters. The largest segment in the total dialysis catheter market in 2016 was represented by long-term hemodialysis catheters. Growth in the long-term hemodialysis catheter segment was driven by increases in the conventional long-term hemodialysis and the antimicrobial long-term hemodialysis sub-segments. Moderate growth in the value of the total dialysis catheter market is expected to persist over the forecast period. However, the shift toward fistula use in the U.S. will continue to hinder growth in the value of the total dialysis catheter market. A greater focus on reducing catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) has mainly been driven by organizations such as the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), with its 5 Million Lives Campaign; the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), with their infection control guidelines; and reimbursement changes made by Medicare. Medical facilities have responded positively because infections are a preventable expense and worsen patient outcomes. The effort to reduce catheter-related infections will result in more catheters with infection-reducing properties. Additionally, antimicrobial catheters sell at a premium and will increase the value of the market.
