Platelet Rich Plasma Market - Snapshot

Plasma is the liquid part of one’s blood containing red blood cells, salt, white blood cells, and vitamins are found. Water comprises most part of the plasma content. Once blood cells are removed from plasma, it turns yellow in color. The global platelet rich plasma market is estimated to be driven by the rising incidences of arthritis and bone-related disorders. In accordance with the US Arthritis Foundation, it is revealed that one of the leading causes of adult disability is arthritis in the country.

The growth of the global platelet rich plasma market is estimated to be influenced by rising utilization of platelet-rich plasma in many therapeutic areas, number of surgical and cosmetic procedures, and increased sports injuries.

Increased Demand for Cosmetic Surgery is Likely to Spur Market Growth

Platelet-rich plasma combines the ability of modern-era technology with the capability of body to heal itself. Several applications such as orthopedics, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, and cosmetic surgery are making increasing utilization of this product, which is estimated to propel growth of the global platelet rich plasma market. The therapy of platelet rich plasma includes a tiny sample of blood of an individual with existing technology to cure one’s shelf. Increased use of the technology in several end use industries such as cosmetic surgery is expected to drive the global platelet rich plasma market in the years to come.

With the help of this therapy, placement of blood of an individual in a centrifuge is used to split up platelets from many other substances. The platelet is injected into and around the site of injury for enabling speedy recovery. This process, however, does not inflict any infection and allergy on a patient as it the blood of the patient that is being used. This factor is likely to encourage developments in the global platelet rich plasma market over the years of projection. In addition, rising prevalence of orthopedic conditions is likely to further drive the demand for platelet rich plasma therapy.

The rising incidence of orthopedic diseases, neurological disorders, cardiovascular diseases, sports injury, and obesity has proven crucial in keeping demand for platelet rich plasma (PRP) high in Asia Pacific. The introduction of advanced devices for better efficiency in PRP preparation has also bode well for the market. These factors are expected to boost the Asia Pacific platelet rich plasma market at a CAGR of 15.4% between 2015 and 2023, as per Transparency Market Research (TMR).

TMR pegs the overall value of the market at US$30 mn in 2014, and has projected it to reach US$110.0 mn by the end of 2023. With millions opting for non-invasive cosmetic surgery every year, and the number exhibiting a robust increase, demand from the Asia Pacific platelet rich plasma market is expected to rise considerably in the forthcoming years.

Among other market drivers, the increasing awareness about PRP products and devices across emerging economies will prove extremely beneficial for the market. However, the rising commercialization of these treatments has fueled their prices. This acts as a major bottleneck restraining the market’s trajectory. Threat associated with therapy failure also limits the market to an extent.

Nevertheless, the emergence of new application areas of the PRP technologies will open newer avenues for the market to explore. The leading companies operating in the Asia Pacific PRP market will also gain from the development of technologically advanced devices.
