Leukapheresis Market Research, 2031

The global leukapheresis market size was valued at $245.7 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $561.6 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2022 to 2031. Leukapheresis is laboratory procedure in which white blood cells are separated from sample of blood. It can be used for to lower an extremely high white blood cell count, to extract autologous or allogeneic blood cells for subsequent transplantation into the patient or for research purposes.

The leukapheresis is used in treatment of leukemia or patients with high white blood cells. In the case of hematological malignancies such as chronic leukemias, white blood cell counts may be high enough to cause leukostasis (acute leukemias have a more variable white cell count and chronic cases typically have higher white blood cell counts). This can affect vision changes, shortness of breath from decreased efficiency in oxygen exchange, as well as other organ systems. Thus, leukapheresis may be performed to obtain the patient's own blood cells for a later transplant. Leukapheresis, is typically for granulocytes, is a rarely performed in blood donation process.

Leukapheresis Market

 

Increase in prevalence of leukemia is the key factor that drives the growth of the global leukapheresis market size. For instance, according to National Library of Medicine in China 2022, is estimated the approximately 88,249 new cases of leukemia (50,213 male cases and 38,036 female cases). In addition, increase in number of clinical trials and increase in public and private investments for the development of CAR (chimeric antigen receptor)-T therapy in which leukapheresis is the first step for CAR-T therapy drive the market growth. However, high cost associated with leukapheresis therapeutics and leukopak and blood transfusion safety in developing countries may hinder the market growth. In contrast increase in demand for leukapheresis in pediatric patients are anticipated to provide lucrative leukapheresis market opportunity to the market players.

Impact of COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the health care sector across the world. The disease has forced a number of industries to shut their doors temporarily, including several sub-domains of health care. However, COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the leukapheresis industry.

Leukapheresis is a laboratory procedure in which white blood cells are separated from the blood. One symptom of COVID-19 is a reduction in the number of lymphocytes cells in the blood. With fewer lymphocytes, the body cannot effectively fight back against SARS CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. For instance, in May 2020, the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center (CC) (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) initiated a clinical study to identify how SARS-CoV-2 affects lymphocytes, the immune, and the blood clotting system using the leukapheresis technique by collecting white blood cells from the patients who recovered from COVID-19.
