A blood bank is a place where the supply of blood or plasma is stored for transfusion. Blood banks perform various functions. They collect blood and process it. Sometimes blood components are separated for particular health care treatments or applications. They test blood samples to ensure that the blood is non-infectious and fit for blood transfusion. They store the blood for future application and transport blood samples to end-users. Blood testing involves ABO typing, antibody screening, and cross matching test. Testing is an important step for players operating in global blood bank market. This is because of stringent government rules for screening of the blood of the donor before storage as infectious blood samples can cross contaminate other blood samples stored in a blood bank. Testing is also important to determine the ABO blood group as blood transfusion takes place according to the ABO and Rh factors system.
Factors such as prevalence of blood-borne diseases and transfusion transmissible infections, rise in the number of surgeries, improving health care infrastructure across the globe, increase in demand for advanced instruments, advancements in automation technology, positively changing reimbursement scenarios, rise in awareness about blood donation and safe blood transfusion, and government initiatives to promote blood donation are expected to propel the global blood bank market during the forecast period. However, high maintenance and high cost of blood processing equipment, and stringent regulatory scenario are anticipated to hamper the global blood bank market. Nevertheless, a rise in the use of cell therapy and blood transfusion in emerging markets is likely to provide attractive opportunities to the global blood bank market.
