Increasing Research Activities in Stem Cell Therapies to Boost Growth
“The market for cord blood banking services in Latin America has been gaining significant impetus from the advancements in the stem cell therapy research, thanks to the increasing infrastructural and technological progression in this region,” says a TMR analyst.
The high incidence rate of genetic disorders and quick and better treatment of such diseases, owing to the easy availability of advanced diagnostic services that provide accurate results are also supporting the growth of the Latin America cord blood banking services. However, the high charges for cord blood banking services and the common opinion among medical professionals about the less possibility of the usage of stored cord blood may limit the adoption of these services in a number of Latin American countries, such as Mexico, Brazil, Peru, and Argentina, reflecting negatively on the overall market, states the research report.
