Rise in awareness pertaining to blood donations, platelets transfusions and available treatment options are some of the major factors uplifting the market growth. Favorable reimbursement policies in developed countries and industry-academia collaborations are also contributing to the blood platelet market revenue. Furthermore, growing technological advancements in platelets aggregation devices is fostering the market growth positively.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented public health concern and has substantially increased the demand for blood and platelets donations. Patients suffering with COVID-19 disease are likely to suffer from thrombocytopenia and require blood platelet transfusion. This factor has significantly augmented the blood platelet market demand during the ongoing pandemic. Additionally, several government and non-government organizations across the globe have urged the donors to donate blood for resuming the surgical procedures and therapeutic treatments of critically ill COVID-19 patients.

Increasing prevalence of chronic and blood-related disorders

Growing prevalence of chronic and blood-related disorders will drive the blood platelet market expansion. According to a recently published study, approximately 844 million people suffer from chronic liver disease (CLD) globally and the number is projected to increase over the coming years. Myelofibrosis, a chronic disorder, predominantly affects middle-aged and elderly population and with increase in geriatric population the prevalence of myelofibrosis is increasing. Patients suffering with chronic disorders such as liver disorders and myelofibrosis require platelet transfusions due to associated risk of platelet depletion. Therefore, the growing prevalence of such diseases is augmenting the demand for platelets donations and platelet transfusions.

Prophylactic transfusion of blood platelets is performed in patients suffering from cancer disorders to prevent bleeding. Additionally, platelet transfusions are done in clinical practice to prevent and treat haemorrhage in patients suffering from blood-related disorders such as Bernard-Soulier syndrome (BSS), thrombocytopenia, haemophilia and severe platelet dysfunction disorders. Thus, leading to an increased need to donate blood components, including platelets.

Thrombocytopenia segment revenue in the blood platelet market crossed USD 1,176 million in 2019 owing to the increasing number of thrombocytopenia cases across the globe. According to the National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD), approximately, more than 200,000 people suffer from immune thrombocytopenia, worldwide. In addition, according to the NORD, the incidence of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) increases with age and is more common over 60 years of age population. The platelet count must be maintained at a specific range to overcome thrombocytopenia, boosting the demand for blood platelet donations and infusion therapies.

Few cancer disorders such as acute myelocytic leukaemia, chronic myelogenous leukaemia and lymphomas are associated with thrombocytopenia due to decrease in count of megakaryocytes. Moreover, patients suffering from systemic autoimmune disorders and hypersplenism have associated thrombocytopenia and require urgent platelet transfusion for treatment, resulting in an augmented demand for platelets. Furthermore, incidences of bleeding disorders and pathological conditions leading to thrombocytopenia are fueling the blood platelet market demand.

Increased number of hospital admissions will enhance the blood platelet market size

Hospitals segment in 2019 exceeded a valuation of more than USD 3,347 million due to the availability of skilled technicians, improved healthcare infrastructure, and high accessibility and affordability of hospitals in conducting testing procedures. Increase in number of admissions of patients in hospitals suffering from cancer disorders, hemophilia and other severe platelet disorders is also contributing to the blood platelet market growth.

Additionally, higher availability of blood components in hospitals results in an increased utilization of blood platelets, resulting in an increased adoption. Increase in number of surgeries and severe injuries requiring blood transfusions are further impelling the demand for blood platelets in hospitals. Furthermore, fair reimbursement policies for blood transfusion procedures result in an increased demand for blood platelets by the hospitals.
