Apheresis is a procedure, wherein whole blood is withdrawn from donor or patient’s body, required blood components such as plasma, leukocytes, erythrocytes, and lipids are separated or removed, and remaining blood components are transfused back into donor or patient’s body. Plateletpheresis is a process of removal of blood from the donor or patient, separating and retaining the platelets, and returning the rest of the blood components to the donor or patient. Patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia, or cancer are recommended plateletpheresis. It is also used in essential thrombocytosis, bleeding, and during surgeries. Plateletpheresis finds applications in the wake of epidemic outbreaks such as Zika virus and malaria. Apheresis is performed by applying two techniques: centrifugation and membrane filtration. Membrane filtration involves separation of blood components based on molecular weight, size, and affinity for particular substance. Centrifugation separates blood components based on molecular weight, centrifugal force, centrifugation RPM, and run time. The two types of centrifugation techniques are intermittent and continuous.
Rise in prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases globally leading to high demand for platelets in the treatment of leukemia, cancer, and other severe conditions is expected to boost the growth of the global plateletpheresis market. Moreover, safety of plateletpheresis over whole blood donation and rise in number of donors across the globe are anticipated to fuel the growth of the global plateletpheresis market. Improvement in health care infrastructure is another factor propelling the global plateletpheresis market. Shift from single dose to double dose apheresis to increase the yield of platelet components being separated has pushed the industry toward development of technically advanced instrument. This also contributes to the growth of the global market. Risks associated with apheresis procedure and stringent regulatory approval process for plateletpheresis devices are likely to hamper the growth of the global plateletpheresis market.
The global plateletpheresis market can be segmented based on technology, product, end-user, and region. In terms of product, the plateletpheresis market can be bifurcated into devices and disposables. The disposables segment is projected to dominate the market because of the prevailing trend of rental contract agreement among manufacturers. Based on technology, the global plateletpheresis market can be classified into centrifugation and membrane filtration. Wide applications, high efficiency, and strong industrial support are anticipated to drive the centrifugation segment during the forecast period. In terms of end-user, the plateletpheresis market can be divided into hospitals and blood collection centers. Initiatives by regional governments to develop health care infrastructure is expected to drive the blood collection centers segment. Rise in demand for platelets to address rise in prevalence of chronic and rare diseases across the globe is likely to propel the hospitals segment.
In terms of region, the global plateletpheresis market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe dominated the global plateletpheresis market in 2017. Platelet production in countries in Europe is shifting from single donor apheresis to pooled platelet. However, in markets such as the U.S., most of the platelet requirement is supplied through plateletpheresis procedure. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to expanding health care infrastructure and high demand for technologically advanced plateletpheresis devices in emerging markets in the region.
Key players operating in the global plateletpheresis market include Cerus Corporation, Fresenius Kabi AG (Fresenius SE & Co. KGaA), Haemonetics Corporation, Terumo Corporation, Miltenyi Biotec, Lmb Technologie GmbH, Delcon SRL, and Grifols.
