Unprecedented Times Are Testing Fresenius Medical Care

Julie Utterback Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Julie Utterback |

Fresenius Medical Care treats end-stage renal disease patients through its dialysis clinic network, medical technology, and care coordination activities. Its strengths in these related areas help Fresenius maintain the leading global position in this market. After pandemic conditions recede, we expect the company to benefit from solid demand in developed markets, such as the U.S., and even faster expansion in emerging markets, such as China, in the long run. With global ESRD patient growth expected to remain in the low to mid-single digits in the long run, we expect top-line growth for Fresenius to be toward the top of that range after a very weak 2021 with similar earnings growth compounded annually during the next five years, if it can get past current inflationary and other challenges.
