Blood bank is a place where supply for blood or plasma is stored for transfusion. Blood banks perform four major functions, which are, collection of blood, processing of blood (sometimes blood components are separated for particular health care treatment or application), testing of blood sample to ensure it is non-infectious and is fit for transfusion, and storage for future application and transportation of blood sample to end-users.
Prevalence of blood-borne diseases and transfusion transmissible infections, rise in number of surgeries, improving health care infrastructure across the globe, demand for advanced instruments, advancement in automation technology, positively changing reimbursement scenarios, awareness about blood donation and safe blood transfusion, and government initiatives to promote blood donation are likely to propel the growth of the global blood bank devices market during the forecast period. However, high maintenance cost, high price of blood processing equipment, and stringent regulatory authorities are anticipated to affect the growth of the market in the near future. Nevertheless, growing use of cell therapy offer growth opportunities to the blood bank devices market.
The global blood bank devices market can be segmented on the basis of product, application, end-user, and region. Based on product, the market can be divided into instruments, collection devices, storage devices, and reagents. Collection devices can be segmented into collection needles, collection tubes, syringes, blood bags, lancets, IV cannulas & cannulas access vials and others. The instruments segment can be classified into centrifuges, blood filters, blood grouping analyzers, and others. Storage devices can be segmented into blood bank refrigerators, blood bank freezers, test tube racks, and others. The reagents segment can be bifurcated into anti-sera reagent, anti- human globulin, blood bank saline, and reagent blood cells. Collection devices is a rapidly growing segment due to increase in blood donation led by rising awareness among people regarding the importance and benefits of the same. Moreover, people are becoming aware of the concept behind blood cell formation in bone marrow and multiplication after blood donations.
Based on application, the global blood bank devices market can be segmented into collection, processing, testing, and storage. The testing segment can be categorized into ABO typing, antibody screening, and cross matching test. It is likely to grow rapidly during the forecast period due to the stringent rules imposed by the government to screen the blood of the donor before storage as infectious blood sample can cross contaminate other blood samples stored in the blood bank. Testing is important to know ABO blood group as blood transfusion take place according ABO and Rh factor systems. In terms of end-user, the global blood bank devices market can be segmented into hospital & clinics, diagnostic & pathology labs, academic & research institutes, and blood banks. Blood banks is projected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period as they have appropriate and well-defined infrastructure for storage of whole blood or blood products as compared to other end-users. Moreover, all types of blood group can be easily found in these units.
On geographical basis, the global blood bank devices market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to be the leading market for blood bank devices during the forecast period because of well-developed health care infrastructure in the region. Europe is another leading market due to rise in funding in blood bank units in the region. The blood bank devices market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow significantly in the near future due to rise in number of blood banking units in the developing countries in the region. Moreover, government initiatives to support blood donation are contributing to the growth of the blood bank devices market in Asia Pacific.
Key players operating in the global blood bank devices markets are Abbott, Beckman Coulter, Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Roche Holdings AG, Siemens Healthcare, and TERUMO CORPORATION.
