Patient Blood Management Market Research, 2031
The global patient blood management market size was valued at $12.2 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $22.1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2022 to 2031. Patient blood management is used to minimize loss of blood during the time of surgical operations and optimize the blood of the patient. Patient blood management is a multimodal, multidisciplinary approach based on the timely application of a bundle of evidence‐based medical and surgical concepts aimed at improving the outcome of patients at risk. The three pillars of patient blood management encompass measures to optimize the patient's red cell mass, reduce peri‐operative blood loss and enhance anemia tolerance. There are various products used in patient blood management are blood transfusion devices, blood processing devices, blood cell processors, centrifuge, blood culture screening devices, automated blood culture systems, blood storage devices, refrigerators, freezers, diagnostic & testing instruments, and reagents and kits.
The patient blood management market was analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2018-2020. Most of the growth during this period was derived from Asia-Pacific owing to the increase in blood donation camps, increase in patient admission for surgery, rising disposable incomes, as well as the well-established presence of domestic companies in the region.
The patient blood management market has witnessed growth owing to the rise in the incidence of trauma and accidents that causes blood loss. For instance, according to the data from World Health Organization (WHO), in June 2022, road traffic injury was the leading cause of death among children and young adults aged 5-29 years. Approximately 1.3 million people die each year and 20 to 50 million are injured or disabled as a result of road traffic crashes.
In addition, cancers that start in the bone marrow (like leukemias) or cancers that spread there from other places may accumulate normal blood-making cells, leading to low blood counts. Therefore, the increase in the prevalence of blood cancer drives the growth of the patient blood management market size. For instance, according to the data from Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, in 2021, new cases of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma accounted for 9.8% of the estimated 1,898,160 new cancer cases in the U.S.
Furthermore, the increase in government healthcare expenditure propels to set up of new blood banks, diagnostic clinics, pathology labs, and government hospitals that further led to the high adoption of patient blood management products and boosted the growth of this market. For instance, the Indian government announced Rs. 69,000 crores (US$ 9.87 billion) outlay for the health sector that is inclusive of Rs. 6,400 crores (US$ 915.72 million) for PMJAY (Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana) in Union Budget 2020–21. Hence, an increase in government expenditure on healthcare drives the growth of the patient blood management market share.
In addition, the growing demand for patient blood management is the result of the rise in the number of diseased people across the world. The aging population is more vulnerable to anemia and requires blood, which increases the demand for patient blood management products. For instance, according to a report published by, UNFPA Asia-Pacific, it was estimated that the number of older people in the Asia-Pacific will triple reaching 1.3 billion by 2050 out of which women constitute the majority (53 percent) of the population aged 60 or older in the region, and their share rises to 60 percent above age 80. With technological advancements, the designs of patient blood management devices have been majorly improved, thereby increasing the preference for patient blood management products among patients. This factor has led to the growth of the patient blood management market. Moreover, the rise in prevalence of hemophilia B, anemia, lymphoma, and HIV/AIDS that require blood, and the surge in incidences of chronic liver diseases that require plasma derivatives for their treatment boost the demand for blood and other blood-related products including plasma, red blood cell across the globe drives the growth of patient blood management market.
However, the patient blood management market is growing now, owing to the relaxation in lockdown, the decrease in COVID-19 cases, and releasing guidelines regarding blood donation. For instance, coronavirus guidelines for America recommended people avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people and need to practice good hygiene like hand washing, but it has urged healthy individuals to donate blood. The availability of blood and other blood components can be maintained by networking cooperation of blood services across regions. Blood donation centers can facilitate the safe donation of blood because they are skilled in infection control practices. According to the World Health Organization, the risk of transmission of COVID-19 through transfusion is likely minimal and theoretical. European National Health Competent Authorities have issued some recommendations on the prevention of transmission of COVID–19 infection through transfusion of labile blood components. The Italian National Blood Centre (Centro Nazionale Sangue, CNS), the Health Ministry's technical and scientific advisory body on matters related to blood and blood products, has issued a number of measures aimed at maintaining high standards of blood donation and blood safety in Italy, one of the countries with a higher incidence of COVID‐19‐related casualties worldwide. Therefore, a rise in government guidelines regarding blood donation increases awareness for safe blood donation and reduces fair among people regarding spreading COVID-19 infection due to blood donation and boosts the growth of this market.
Furthermore, an increased prevalence of trauma and accidents, an increase in initiatives taken by the government, and the development of innovative technologies and devices from leading vendors are likely to boost the growth of the patient blood management market during the forecast period. For instance, Sepacell TM Filters by Asahi Kasei medical revolutionized the patient blood management scenario completely and has also increased confidence in healthcare. Roche is offering a comprehensive portfolio of nucleic acid testing (NAT) solutions that deliver the highest level of safety and efficiency in donor screening. Thus, such trends are expected to bring stabilization in the market, and subsequently witness a growth rate during the forecast period.
