Blood and Blood Components Market size to exceed $15.2Bn by 2028

  • Published Date: April 12, 2022

Blood and Blood Components Market size is set to surpass USD 15.2 billion by 2028, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Increased number of surgeries along with rising number of people suffering from conditions that affect the natural process of blood cells production will boost the business landscape. Furthermore, blood and blood components are essential elements that cannot be manufactured artificially. Hence, health authorities such as Dubai Health Authority are organizing blood drives and awareness campaigns to encourage people towards blood donation. The cosmetic surgeries have recently gained immense popularity leading to increased demand for blood and blood components including platelets and plasma.

Growing number of surgeries will fuel the Blood and Blood Components Market expansion

Patients’ blood management is one of the key aspects at the time of referral for surgery. Anemic patient needs to be tested and treated pre-surgery. Red blood cells are required by an anemic patient. Also, patients specifically those on antiplatelets or anticoagulant drugs refer external supply of essential blood products. Generally, patients experience blood loss during the surgery. Also, an accident or injured patient may also require blood due to high blood loss.

Bleeding disorders or patients experiencing abnormal bleeding post-surgery or dental extractions may witness anemia and require administration of red blood cells. Majority of treatments such as cancer involve surgery as one of the treatment options, in such cases transfusion is necessary as people suffering from chronic diseases have reduced capacity of producing enough blood cells. With growing number of surgeries, demand for blood and blood components is set to rise.

Transmission of infection through blood transfusion may hamper the Blood and blood components market revenue

Risk of transfusion transmitted infection (TTI) transmitted through donated blood to recipient restrains few donors from donating blood. Various organisms such as viruses, bacteria, parasites can be transmitted during transfusion of blood. However, blood organizations are now using pathogen reduction technology (PRT) to decrease the risk of transfusion transmitted infection among the blood recipients. Blood and blood components are also sometimes contaminated with bacteria.

For instance, nearly 1 out of 2,000-3,000 platelet transfusions is contaminated kept at room temperature. TTI is less common however, can lead to severe illness or even death. Improved methods of blood collection, donor screening, proper handling and storage of blood components has overall reduced the incidence of transfusion transmitted infections. More enhanced technique along with proper management of blood and blood products will encourage blood donors to donate blood.
