Cord Blood Banking Market worth over $20bn by 2027

  • Published Date: August 24, 2021

Cord Blood Banking Market size is set to surpass USD  20 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rapidly developing blood banking infrastructure, rising demand for cord blood banking services, and growing funding in R&D will stimulate the market growth. Also, rising awareness to encourage cord blood banking is anticipated to fuel the market expansion in the coming years.

The highly contagious nature of the COVID-19 virus has negatively influenced the cord blood banking market. Although there is limited evidence to prove that vertical transmission is highly minimal in coronavirus, still the fear of spread of infection is persistent among people. Furthermore, various restrictions across the globe slowed down the blood banking services. This has decreased the demand for cord blood banking services, thereby negatively impacting the industry growth.

Rising burden of anemia will foster the market progression

The growth of the cord blood banking market is attributed to the increasing prevalence of blood-associated disorders like thalassemia, anemia, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and others. Additionally, the rising prevalence of anemia around the world will propel the industry expansion. Globally, the prevalence rate is 22.8% and majorly children and women are affected by the anemia. Women of reproductive age and pregnant women are at the higher risk of developing anemia and it may result in premature delivery, stillbirth, miscarriage, and other pregnancy-related complications. Moreover, the high incidence rate of anemia in developing countries, high risk of anemia in children owing to genetic mutation and, high prevalence of hematology disorders will augment the market value.

A low acceptance rate in developing countries may hamper the market demand. According to the WHO, lower-middle-income countries and low-income countries don’t have required cord banking facilities around the country. The Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) and the International NetCord Foundation have amended certain rules and guidelines while collecting cord blood. The inability to meet the guidelines results in transfusion-transmissible infections transmitted in the donated blood. Aseptic collection, screening, handling is very necessary for storing umbilical cord blood. Thus, the low awareness regarding regulations and cord banking may restrain lower-income countries to store blood, thereby hampering the industry value.

Public bank segment is expected to showcase significant growth

The public bank segment in the cord blood banking market was valued at USD 2.3 billion in 2020. Public cord banks are nonprofitable companies that store cord blood for free. According to statistics, only 1 in 400 to 1 in 200,000 children will require their stored cord blood. Public companies share their samples with research organizations and transplant patients as well. Further, the public bank segment witnessed high market revenue due to an increase in the demand for cord blood banking, rising prevalence of hematological disorders, and increase in blood donation.
