Report Overview

The South Africa hemodialysis & peritoneal dialysis market size to be valued at USD 847.2 million by 2025 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.1% during the forecast period.

The Clinical Kidney Journal states that the prevalence of chronic kidney disease in Africa was pegged at 13.9% in 2016.

South Africa Hemodialysis & Peritoneal Dialysis Market size, by product

Increasing the prevalence of hypertension and diabetes is anticipated to drive the need for dialysis as these diseases could result in kidney dysfunction. South Africa has a large patient population with inadequate funding and healthcare facilities that are not too well developed. This provides lucrative growth opportunities to market players in this region. Transplantation and dialysis are the two options available to patients suffering from kidney failure or severe kidney damage. There are very few kidney donors in the region and this situation is unlikely to change in the coming years, thereby propelling the demand for dialysis.

The latest dialysis machines are designed to enhance patient usability through easy setup, treatment, and cleanup. Medtronic launched a new portable dialysis machine in July 2017, which is likely to help patients in remote areas. Advancements such as these are making the procedure simple, less painful, convenient, and time-saving.

South Africa Hemodialysis & Peritoneal Dialysis Market Trends


The rise in the incidence of CKD (chronic kidney diseases) and ESRD (End Stage Renal Diseases) is a major factor driving the demand for dialysis. Moreover, new healthcare funding channels improved healthcare systems, and the introduction of technological innovations in dialysis devices are all projected to increase the demand for dialysis devices and their market.

The increasing availability of qualified nephrologists led to many people receiving renal care in the region. Furthermore, to meet the growing need for renal care in developing markets, investors are concentrating their efforts on expanding the number of renal treatment centers in the region. Therefore, there is expansion because of the access to low-cost centers in these areas.

Furthermore, the approval of regulatory bodies for the launch of innovative products and consumables, public sector participation in the prevention and control of kidney diseases, and collaborative effort by various organizations to provide efficient dialysis services in niche areas, are expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.


Heart disease and vascular access problems including nausea, internal bleeding, anemia, hernia, hepatitis B and C, and low blood pressure are the primary reasons for death in dialysis patients. These factors make patients scared of treatment, hampering the market growth.


Key players are increasingly focusing on the implementation of agreements with domestic players and geographic expansions to raise their market presence. Moreover, government funding, the advancement of home dialysis, and the increasing number of dialysis centers are all aiding dialysis treatment and are expected to provide an opportunity for growth during the forecast period.

Type Insights

On the basis of type, the South Africa hemodialysis & peritoneal dialysis market is segmented into hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. As of 2016, hemodialysis dominated the market and is anticipated to retain its dominance through 2025. The segment is poised to exhibit a CAGR of over 7.0% during the forecast period. Hemodialysis is an alternative treatment option for people who failed to receive a kidney transplant. In 2015, the highest number of patients were registered at Gauteng, followed by KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.

South Africa Hemodialysis & Peritoneal Dialysis Market share, by type

Peritoneal dialysis is also expected to witness lucrative growth owing to rising demand for the treatment method amongst neonates and children. Furthermore, the higher applicability of this technique in home-based services is promoting the growth of the segment.

Application Insights

On the basis of product, the market is segmented into devices, consumables, and services. The services segment held the dominant share owing to an increase in the adoption of home-based dialysis and the development of new treatment centers. Africa has few dialysis centers due to a shortage of water supply, poor electricity supply, and the high cost of dialysis machines.

Devices are further segmented into machines, dialyzers, water treatment systems, and others. Dialyzers dominated the market space as of 2016, as it is the primary equipment required for the procedure. Consumables are sub-segmented into bloodlines, concentrates and catheters, and others; concentrates dominated this segment owing to routine and frequent purchase of the product.

End-use Insights

On the basis of end use, the market is classified into home-based and hospital-based. Hospital-based dialysis is the largest segment due to the availability of professionals who can address any complications that arise during dialysis and help achieve better results. However, home-based dialysis is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period. This can be attributed to a number of factors such as an increase in the development of small and automated products for home use, a rise in the number of individuals requiring daily dialysis, availability of skilled personnel to provide training on self-dialysis, and initiatives by market participants for raising awareness about home dialysis.
