Blood transfusion is the commonly used procedure for intravenous administration of blood to a person to replace lost blood. A needle is inserted in a blood vessel to transfer blood obtained from a healthy donor. Blood transfusion is generally used to replace blood lost due to surgery or serious injury, and also in cases of diseases wherein blood formation is inadequate or inefficient. The blood transfusion market is expected to witness dynamic growth due to improving health care facilities and technological advancement in blood collection and safety in transfusion process. Blood transfusion is used as a lifesaving intervention for several chronic diseases. Increase in geriatric population, rising cancer therapies, emergence of infectious diseases (HIV and hepatitis), and significant rise in surgical procedures also drive the global blood transfusion market. In addition, strict government regulations across the world are boosting market growth. According to the International Diabetes Federation (2014), the percentage of population suffering from diabetes across the globe would increase by 53% from 2014 to 2035.
Threat of spurt in new infections and infectious diseases that originate through the blood donation route are the major restraints of the blood transfusion market. Infectious diseases such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and hepatitis are the two major concerns that pose a threat to blood supply. Moreover, blood cannot be manufactured and can only be obtained from donors for transfusion. Hence, shortage of donors is likely to hamper the growth of the blood transfusion market. For instance, about 38% of population is eligible for blood donation, but only 10% of it actually go for blood donation. Lack of skilled professionals to handle the blood collection and transfusion procedure is another factor that may restraints the blood transfusion market, especially in underdeveloped or low income countries.
