Immunohematology Market size is set to surpass USD 3 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Rapidly improving healthcare infrastructure, rising demand for fast hematology test results, and growing investments in R&D will positively impact the market growth. Also, rising blood donation awareness to encourage the market demand in the coming years.
The highly contagious nature of the COVID-19 virus has driven the use of immunohematology technologies such as plasma therapy to successfully treat patients. According to the study conducted by FDA, the convalescent plasma therapy helped many critically ill patients suffering from COVID-19. The convalescent plasma therapy boosts the immune system of the coronavirus-infected patient and helps the body to fight against the virus.
Rising burden of anemia will foster the market expansion
The growth of the immunohematology market is on account of the increasing prevalence of blood-associated disorders like anemia, thalassemia, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, and others. Moreover, the growing prevalence of anemia across the globe will augment the industry demand. The prevalence rate of anemia is 22.8% globally and it majorly affects children and women. Pregnant females and women of reproductive age are at high risk of developing anemia which may result in miscarriage, still birth, premature delivery, and other complications. Additionally, the high incidences of anemia in pregnant women, high prevalence of hematology disorders, and high risk of anemia in children due to genetic mutation will impel the market revenue.
Prevalence of transfusion-transmissible infections in blood donations may hamper the immunohematology market progression
The rising incidence of transfusion-transmissible infections in blood donations may hamper the industry expansion. According to the WHO, 82% and 80.3% of lower-middle-income countries and low-income countries don’t follow the WHO guidelines while screening the blood for infectious disease. The transfusion-transmissible infections like HIV, hepatitis B or C, syphilis, and others may get transmitted through the donated blood. Blood screening is very necessary according to quality system requirements.
Growing demand for immunohematology analyzer will enhance the segment growth
