Biomedical Refrigerators and Freezers Market (Types: Ultra Low Freezers, Plasma Freezers, Shock Freezers, Blood Bank Refrigerators, Laboratory Refrigerators, and Laboratory Freezers; Application: Hospitals, Research Laboratories, Pharmacies, Diagnostic Centers, Blood Banks, and Others) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2022


Biomedical refrigerators and freezers are medical equipment that are specifically used to store biological samples, pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals, medical supplies, enzymes, blood products, among others. These equipment are ideally suited for use in hospitals, research laboratories, pharmacies, diagnostic centers, and blood banks. Rising number of research activities in the biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical industries globally coupled with increasing demand for biological drugs is considered a major driver of the growth of the market. Other factors such as positive government initiatives, technological upgrade, and consistent rise in geriatric population would increase the uptake of biomedical refrigerators and freezers in the near future. However, high cost of equipment and growing use of refurbished equipment are some of the factors expected to hamper the growth of the biomedical refrigerators and freezers market.

The plasma freezers segment accounted for the largest share of around 31% of the global market in 2013. The segment dominated the market majorly due to the increasing number of apheresis procedures coupled with rising demand for storage of fresh frozen plasma (FFP). According to the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA), plasma exchange is the most common apheresis procedure in the U.S. This would increase the uptake of plasma freezers among blood banks, hospital settings, and research laboratories for the storage of FFP, which would augment market growth. However, decreasing demand for blood units could reduce the usage of plasma freezers in blood banks and hospitals, thus restraining market growth. The American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) stated that demand for blood units declined by 8.2% between 2008 and 2011. Thus, decrease in demand for blood is likely to hamper the overall growth of the plasma freezers segment during the forecast period. 

The blood banks application segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2013 due to availability of high cost refrigerators and freezers in blood banks. On the other hand, the research laboratories segment is projected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period due to significant innovation in biomedical and life sciences research and development in developed and developing regions.  

Geographically, North America dominates the global biomedical refrigerators and freezers market. Developed health care infrastructure and growing life science research industry are the key factors propelling demand for biomedical refrigerators and freezers in North America. In addition, significant rise in life science research activities for treatment of diseases such as cancer and neural diseases has led to an increase in demand for biological sample storage equipment in North America. The biomedical refrigerators and freezers market in the U.S. accounted for the largest share of the market in terms of revenue and was valued at USD 1,215.99 million in 2013. High demand for advanced medical treatments such as organ transplants, personalized medicines, and cellular therapy coupled with expanding life sciences research and development industry are the major factors attributed to the dominant position of the U.S. The plasma freezers segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2013. Rising number of blood donations is propelling the demand for plasma freezers in blood banks in the U.S. Blood organizations in the country are taking continuous efforts to encourage citizens to donate platelets, blood, or make financial donations to support blood donation campaigns to decrease the demand-supply gap between blood units in the U.S. For instance, in January 2015, the American National Red Cross launched SleevesUp Virtual Blood Drives. Such drives are resulting in increase in the overall blood donations in the country, and thereby driving demand for plasma freezers in the U.S.

Presence of key players, emerging economies, rising awareness, availability of products at affordable prices, and relatively less stringent regulatory framework are the major factors anticipated to drive the biomedical refrigerators and freezers market in Asia Pacific. The market is projected to expand at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period from 2014 to 2022. Moreover, rapidly growing medical tourism industry and biotechnology industry in countries such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea are likely to offer immense growth opportunities to the manufacturers in this region. 

As of April 2014, Japan had seven block blood centers and 47 blood centers under the Japanese Red Cross Society with several branches spread throughout the country. Each blood center has on average one to two plasma freezers. Considering all the above mentioned factors, the plasma freezers and blood bank segments generated maximum revenue in the biomedical refrigerators and freezers market by type and by application, respectively, in 2013. 

Key players operating in the global biomedical refrigerators and freezers market include Panasonic Healthcare Co., Arctiko A/S, Binder GmbH, Biomedical Solutions, Inc. (BSI), Bionics Scientific Technologies (P) Ltd., Dometic S.à.r.l., Eppendorf AG, Helmer Scientific, and Haier Bio-Medical.
