Fluid management systems are intended for maintaining body fluid content and to avoid complications associated with undesirable levels of body fluids. Moreover, this system is used for the treatment of life-threatening medical conditions such as end stage renal failure.
The fluid management system allows safe control of blood plasma, blood, and other body fluids entering or exiting during any procedure. This system also performs other functions such as fluid warming, fluid irrigation, fluid monitoring, and fluid filtration.
The key factors influencing the fluid management system market trends are rapid launches of dialyzers by manufacturers and increasing incidences of chronic diseases, such as end stage renal disease, or diabetes. Moreover, the fluid management system market growth is propelled by strategic moves of market players to sustain or exceed market competition.
Fluid Management System Market Dynamics
Increasing product launches in dialysis segment of standalone fluid management system is adding a wide range of product options in the market with better systems for better treatment of kidney associated medical conditions. For instance, in 2016, Baxter International Inc. launched Theronova dialyzer with wider range of molecules which can be filters, in Europe.
Furthermore, in 2014 NxStage Medical, Inc., a dialysis product manufacturer, received U.S. FDA approval for its innovative hemodialysis product, System One. System One is intended to perform hemodialysis overnight for the patients at home.
Fluid management systems are also used in minimally invasive surgical procedure to manage the fluid levels. Henceforth, increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures are also expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period. The fluid management system market is expected to notice inevitable shift towards disposable accessories owing to increasing adoption of disposable accessories such as catheters, during the forecast period. The awareness of disease spread by sharing of the accessories is expected to enhance the adoption of disposable accessories used for fluid management systems market.
Increasing use of dialyzers to support chronic kidney disorder and patients waiting for kidney transplant is also supporting the fluid management system market growth. According to the data of Global Burden of Disease Study, in 2015, kidney disease leads to the death of 1.1 million people across the world being the 12th most common cause of death.
High procedure cost and lack of skilled professionals are the major factors restraining the fluid management system market growth.
