Biopreservation Market Share

Source: MRFR Analysis

The Americas are likely to dominate the global biopreservation market owing to the adoption of advanced technology, increasing spending on healthcare R&D, the presence of a well-established healthcare system, and increasing in-house sample storage in hospitals and research institutes. Moreover, presence and recent merger and acquisition activities by market players in the region are contributing to the growth of the market.  For instance, in 2017, Cesca Therapeutics Inc. has acquired Sacramento’s SynGen Inc. for USD 1 million with this acquisition company has managed to add cell separation and cord blood processing products in their portfolio.

The European market is expected to be the second-largest biopreservation market. The market growth in this region can be attributed to the increasing number of births and with-it continuous increase in demand for umbilical cord preservation. According to the European Commission, in the year 2016 more than 5.1 million babies were born in Europe.  Moreover, a growing number of sperm and egg banks is contributing to the growth of the market in this region.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing biopreservation market during the forecast period owing to the increasing population in the region, increasing awareness about stem cell preservation and continuous development in the healthcare sector due to government funding.

The market in the Middle East & Africa is expected to account for the smallest share of the global biopreservation market due to an underdeveloped healthcare sector, lack of technical knowledge, and poor medical facilities.
