Leading players in the market are Cord Blood America, Inc, Cord Blood Registry Systems, Inc., Cryo-Cell International, Inc., NeoStem, Inc., and ViaCord, Inc.

North America is expected to lead in both private cord blood banking market as well as public cord blood services market, reaching a value of US$13.14 bn and US$6.58 bn by 2019.

The scarcity of compatible cord blood units is posing a challenge to the market. Another concern is the adoption rates of this service is low in developing and under developing nations as the cost of private banking is too high.
