Artificial Kidney Market Overview

During the forecast period (2020-2030), the global artificial kidney market size is estimated to account for USD 5477.32 Million and will grow at a significant CAGR of 60.33%.

An artificial kidney is a medical device that allows the assistance of dialysis at any time. To enhance the dialysis process, there have been continuous research and development activities from the past decade. At the end-stage of kidney disease, it is unable to perform its functions like filtering and removing blood wastes and other fluids. People suffering from end-stage kidney disease need dialysis treatment.  Dialysis can eliminate and filter the fluids and metabolic wastes, but cannot compensate for the lost kidney functions like endocrine function, homeostasis, and regulating metabolism. The artificial kidney function helps the human body to live safely and healthily. To perform dialysis, there has been a demand for minimally invasive procedures. This artificial bionic kidney reduces the hospital visits for performing dialysis.

According to the National Kidney Foundation, nearly 100,000 patients are on the waiting list for a kidney donor and over 3,000 new patients have been added to this list annually.

Covid-19 Analysis of Artificial Kidney Market

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic spread all over the world, most of the industries across the globe are severely impacted. To curb the spread of the virus, the government authorities enforced lockdowns and other few restrictions to maintain social distance. This leads to significant disruptions to manufacturing and supply chain operations.

The global artificial kidney market is also drastically impacted by this pandemic. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, most of the individual’s economic status was declined and thus they are reducing the non-essential expenses from their budgets. Hence, the consumer demand is also reduced towards this market and the growth of the market is also reduced. However, the government authorities are lifting the lockdowns and other restrictions, the growth of the market is rapidly increasing and expected to recover its growth rate.

Market Dynamics:


Growing research and development for the improvement of the dialysis process, increasing incidence of kidney diseases, low availability of kidney donors are the major factors influencing the artificial kidney market growth. A growing number of patients suffering from renal failure is also boosting the market growth.

Moreover, easy availability of advanced healthcare facilities, changes in growing disposable income, growing speeding capacity, an increasing number of kidney transplant surgeries, and an increase in the geriatric population are some other factors accelerating the artificial kidney market growth. Increasing government emphasis on developing healthcare infrastructure, related to favorable reimbursement policies, leads to prefer the artificial kidney implant which escalates the market growth.


The artificial kidney costs are very high which may restrict the artificial kidney market growth.


The rising demand for advanced technology devices is propelling the market growth. Growing awareness among the people regarding renal failure diseases and changing lifestyles is influencing the growth of artificial kidney development. Increasing the investment for the artificial kidney research and development of advanced technologies by the prominent key players and R & D activities for the development of cost-effective products are expanding the artificial kidney industry and provides the growth opportunity to boost the market growth in the assessment period.


The non-favorable regulatory framework in developing countries is challenging the artificial kidney machine. The size of the artificial kidney is large and immobile and a few engineering problems associated with the devices are some of the challenging factors of the global market.

Segment Overview:

The global artificial kidney market has been divided into segments based on type, dialysis, and region.

Based on Type

The global artificial kidney market based on the type is classified into two types as the wearable artificial kidney and implantable artificial kidney. Out of these two types, a wearable artificial kidney is holding the maximum (100%) market share because the other type of implantable artificial kidney is under clinical trials. Implantable artificial kidneys are going on clinical trials in humans and are expected to receive FDA approval by the end of the review period. The implantable artificial kidney type segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR after the approval of the FDA.

Based on Dialysis

The global artificial kidney market based on dialysis is bifurcated into two types as hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Due to a large number of hemodialysis procedures, hemodialysis is accounting for the largest market share during the forecast period. Annually, more than 60 % of prevalent ESRD cases prefer hemodialysis therapy in the US and more than 80% of patients in Europe. Peritoneal dialysis is predicted to hold the second-largest market share

Based on Region

Regionally, the global artificial kidney market is divided into four main geographies like Asia-Pacific, Europe, America, and the Middle East & Africa. Among these regions,  America is dominating the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to continue its demand in the forecast period due to the presence of a large number of medical device companies, growing research and development of public and private organizations.

Regional Analysis

Geographically, the global artificial kidney market is categorized into Europe, Asia-Pacific, America, and the Middle East & Africa. Out of these regions, America is holding the largest market share due to the presence of a large patient population related to kidney disease, growing research and development by various public and private organizations, and the presence of a large number of medical device companies.

Due to the growing utilization of the latest technological devices, rising demand for non-invasive procedures, increasing the standards for the treatment of chronic kidney disease, Europe is projected to hold the second-largest market share. The prevalence of chronic kidney disease stage 3 to 5 in few adult populations is more than 22% in the European region. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate due to the high population in emerging countries like China, India, and others. In India, more than 100,000 people are diagnosing with End-stage kidney disease per year who are on dialysis or transplantation.

Competitive Landscape
