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.
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.
