We establish some maximal inequalities for demimartingales which generalize the result of Wang (2004). The maximal inequality for demimartingales is used as a key inequality to establish other results including Doob's type maximal inequality, strong law of large numbers, strong growth rate, and integrability of supremum for demimartingales, which generalize and improve partial results of Christofides (2000) and Prakasa Rao (2007).
