Blood Screening Market Overview Analysis, Growth Values, Demand Prospects, Future Trends, Key Company Profiles, Business Opportunities and Forecast to 2026

A blood screening is a process of testing blood which is done prior to blood transfusion to ensure that recipients receive safe blood products. Blood samples collected during donation undergo laboratory screening for Transfusion-Transmissible Infections (TTIs) in order to detect infectious disease pathogens such as hepatitis B and C viruses and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Immunoassays (IAs) and nucleic acid amplification technology (NAT) assays are two major type of blood screening tests. Immunoassays (IAs) are further subcategorized into enzyme immunoassays (EIAs), chemiluminescent immunoassays (CLIAs), haemagglutination (HA)/particle agglutination (PA) assays, and rapid/simple single-use assays (rapid tests).

Market- Drivers

Rising demand for NAT over ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) test owing to high sensitivity and specificity for viral nucleic acid is propelling the blood screening market growth. For instance, in 2018, Grifols received approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for two blood screening assays- Procleix Ultrio Elite and Procleix WNV. Both assays run on the fully automated NAT blood screening platform: Procleix Panther system. The Procleix Panther system with these assays helps blood centers to efficiently screen for infectious diseases and eliminates the need for batch processing.

A growing number of blood donation campaigns by the government such as blood donor agencies, and NGO’s are further expected to propel the growth of the blood screening market. For instance, according to the WHO reported data in June 2017, around 112.5 million blood donations are collected globally and around half of these are collected in high-income countries, highlighting 19% of the world’s population. Moreover, rising initiatives by the government to spread awareness among the people regarding the safety of blood donation is expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, in 2014, World Health Organization (WHO) recommended to establish a national blood system with well-organized and coordinated blood transfusion services, effective evidence-based and ethical national blood policies, and legislation and regulation that can provide sufficient and timely supplies of safe blood and blood products to meet the transfusion needs of all patients.

On the other hand, shortages of trained staff and poor quality systems are expected to restrain the growth of the market.

Regional Analysis

On the basis of region, the global blood screening market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. Geographically, North America is expected to dominate the blood screening market, and this can be attributed to the rising number of acquisitions by major players in the region. For Instance, in July 2017, Grifols acquired the NAT (Nucleic Acid Testing) donor screening unit from the U.S. Company Hologic for a purchase price of US$ 1,850 Million. This agreement bound to research, development, and manufacture of assays and instrument activities by using NAT technology that allows detection of infectious agents present in blood and plasma donations, contributing to greater transfusion safety.

The Asia Pacific is projected to witness significant growth in the blood screening market and this can be attributed to increasing government initiatives and rising awareness regarding the transmission of diseases during blood transfusion among the population. For instance, in June 2015, a National Blood Donor Vigilance Programme (NBDVP) was launched in India on the World Blood Donor Day. The objectives of the NBDVP is to increase blood donation frequency and reduce the frequency of the adverse event and to analyze the risk factor and evaluate preventive measure.

Key Player operating in the blood screening market include Grifols,  F. Hoffmann-La Roche,  Abbott Laboratories, Biomérieux, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Siemens Healthineers (A Subsidiary of Siemens AG), Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Beckman Coulter (A Subsidiary of Danaher Corporation)  and Becton, Dickinson, and Company.
