Blood Group Typing Market: The increasing blood transfusion rate is projected to boost the market growth at a healthy CAGR of ~ 10.2% :

Pune, India, September 2018/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a half-cooked research report on the global blood group typing market.

Market Highlights

Blood group typing is a type of test that is used to determine the blood group. It is determined by the type of antigens present on the blood group. Blood group typing is a prerequisite for blood transfusion to examine the compatibility between the donor and the recipient blood groups. Blood cancer patients need a frequent blood transfusion which in turn requires blood group typing. The rising demand for blood and blood products, increasing prevalence of road accidents and trauma cases that make blood transfusion necessary, need for knowing the blood group for prenatal testing, and rising usage of blood group typing in forensic sciences are the factors driving the growth in this market. On the other hand, stringent government rules for blood transfusion, lack of skilled and trained blood transfusion professionals may hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The global blood group typing market is currently dominated by many market players. The prominent players in the market are engaged in frequent new product launches and strategic collaborations to strengthen its market position. For instance, in October 2016, Bio-Rad laboratories got an approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its IH-1000 blood equipment.
