Apheresis Market Overview

Apheresis market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% during the forecast period (2020-2030). Apheresis is a medical procedure that involves the purifying of blood or the separation of distinct blood components. It entails taking blood from a donor or patients and collecting it in a piece of equipment that separates the desired component from the blood while returning the rest to the donor or patients. Two processes were used to separate the components: centrifugation and filtration.

Furthermore, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study, chronic kidney disease affects about 37 million (15%) people in the United States. The Apheresis Market Growth is driven by apheresis, which plays a critical role in the purifying of blood in patients with kidney problems. Along with these considerations, the market Size is being driven forward by increased product innovations and approvals. For example, Fresenius Kabi AG and Fresenius Kabi USA got FDA approval for the ALYX Component Collection System, which is designed to collect and separate whole blood into its constituents in blood collection facilities. As a result of the aforementioned cases shows that the Apheresis Market Trends is predicted to increase steadily over the coming years.

COVID Analysis

Due to the widespread use of plasma therapy in the treatment of COVID-19 infected patients, the Apheresis Market Growth is predicted to benefit during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the US FDA authorized emergency use authorization (EUA) of convalescent plasma (CCP) therapy in hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Terumo BCT Inc. and Marker Therapeutics AG also gained FDA clearance for the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of Terumo BCT's Spectra Optia Apheresis System in combination with Marker Therapeutics' D2000 Adsorption Cartridge to treat COVID-19 disease in patients aged 18 and up. As a result of the widespread use of apheresis units in the treatment of COVID-19 patients and growing FDA product approvals, the Apheresis Market Outlook is on the rise.

Apheresis Market Dynamics


The Apheresis Market Size is fueled by advancements in innovative apheresis procedures, the rising prevalence of various chronic diseases, blood-related ailments, and biopharmaceutical companies' increasing demand for source plasma, among other factors. Increased demand for various blood components, the increasing complexity of surgical operations, and an increase in the number of accidents throughout the world have all contributed to the market's expansion. Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and cardiac neonatal lupus are among the novel apheresis indications that have recently been approved. The need for platelets is increasing, according to the National Health Service (NHS) Blood and Transplant which will lead to increased Apheresis Market Share during the forecast period.


While a shortage of qualified professionals and the ease with which blood and blood products can be infected, the risk of infection also contributes to the market's slow growth and decreased Apheresis Market Value. However, factors such as the high cost of apheresis devices and therapeutic apheresis procedures, as well as the rental model's installation of apheresis devices, fewer blood donations using apheresis due to lack of awareness, and stringent donor recruitment criteria are expected to limit market growth.

Apheresis is a medical procedure in which a person's blood, whether a donor or a patient, is put through a device that separates a specific ingredient from the rest of the blood and returns it to circulation. Using centrifugation or membrane filtration technology, blood is purified and blood components are separated. This technique is carried out as part of a blood donation or to treat a condition. The apheresis market is divided into two categories based on technology as centrifugation and membrane separation. So, technology plays a vital role in the market.
