The World Health Organization (WHO), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and the International Society of blood transfusions have defined voluntary non-remunerated blood guiding principle. This measure is urging people to donate blood, thereby increasing the number of blood and blood component donors.

The American National Red Cross and the International Federation of Blood Donor Organizations are making efforts to raise awareness, build blood collection facilities and aid the patients suffering from COVID-19. Moreover, awareness programs are being conducted in educational institutions regarding importance of platelet transfusion in cancer patients. Therefore, the demand and usage of blood platelets is increasing further with rising awareness regarding blood donations and platelet transfusions.

Favorable reimbursement policies in developed countries will significantly uplift the blood platelets market growth in the coming years. Hospitals are reimbursed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for blood platelet transfusion services. Some of the European countries also provide various reimbursement policies for high-priced platelet therapies which are managed by entry agreements with pharmaceutical companies and public players. These policies help in reducing the cost of treatment that will ultimately rise the demand and acceptance of advanced platelet transfusions and other therapies. These reimbursement policies have led to an increased adoption for blood transfusion. Several healthcare corporations are engaged in providing reimbursements for blood platelet transfusion services.
