One of the prime reasons driving the market for blood collection is surging cases of chronic diseases. Chronic diseases can be explained as a disease that may last more than a year, most of the last a lifetime, requiring continuous medical attention and periodic treatments. Chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease widely prevail in the US and are the leading cause of death in the country. 6 out of every 10 people in the US suffer from one chronic disease. While 4 in 10 adults have more than 1 disease. The chronic disease health care cost in the country is around US$3.8 trillion, annually. Further, one-third of deaths in the country are caused by some cardiovascular disease, which cost the healthcare system US$214 billion. The cost of cancer treatment in the country was US$174 billion in 2020. Cancer was the second leading cause of death, globally, in 2018, and had caused 9.6 million deaths in the year. Moreover, data from the International Diabetes Federation, the number of diabetes patients will increase from 460 million in 2019 to 700 million in 2045.

The rise in chronic diseases has positively affected the blood collection market. Patients with chronic diseases are required to perform regular check-ups to determine the status of their disease.

People Hesitation May Constrain the Market Growth

Based on products, the blood collection market is segmented into needles, blood collection tubes, and syringes, blood bags, and lancets. These products are combined to collect blood for donation. However, needles, syringes, and lancets are enough to collect blood for diagnostic purposes. Blood donation helps fulfilling blood requirements during emergencies, having the potential to save the patient’s life. Moreover, the donor is easily able to replenish the lost blood with 24 to 48 hours, without causing weakness or side effects. But people, in general, hesitate to donate blood due to several myths, fear, and other non-medical reasons. This may constrain the market growth during the forecasted period. in the US alone, 40% of the population is eligible to donate blood, but only 5% of them donate. The prime reasons given by eligible people for not donating blood are that they are either feared of needles and donating blood or that they are afraid of catching the disease from the non-sanitized needle or equipment. Further, unsuitable or nutrient deficit blood is ineligible for donation, limiting the market size of the blood collection market.

The North American blood collection market is predicted to dominate the industry during the forecasted period owing to the region’s state-of-art infrastructure and growing government initiatives for blood supply. Further, the increasing chronic disease instances will significantly boost the market. However, the Asia Pacific blood collection market is expected to grow at an exponential rate. The prime reason driving the market growth in the region is surging chronic disease prevalence and better health cautiousness as a result of increased standard of livings. Moreover, the booming medical tourism industry will considerably support the market growth during the forecasted period.
