Blood Screening Market Trends



  • Emergence of automated molecular platforms for blood screening to propel market growth


Automated molecular platforms for blood screening are becoming a popular strategy among leading market players, fueling market growth. Blood screening tests aim to ensure the security of donated blood units and to find any signs of transmissible transfusion infections (TTIs) in the blood. The transition from manual to automated screening platforms has been critical in identifying contagious transfusion infections (TTIs) in blood samples. In the transfusion screening process, growing automation is anticipated to reduce human error. These screening tests generally impact most medical decisions in blood banks and hospitals.


For instance, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. confirmed the CE-IVD launch of "cobas" in December 2019, which is intended to be utilized for blood donation screening and locates the Zika virus in human plasma. As a result, the adoption of these automated molecular platforms in blood donation facilities has increased due to the introduction of these platforms by key players. This will drive the growth of the blood screening market CAGR over the forecasted period. Other key factors boosting the development of the Blood Screening Market revenue include increasing blood donations and blood donors, raising awareness of the safety of donated blood, growing the prevalence of infectious diseases, and various government initiatives. The number of blood donations worldwide in 2022 is estimated to be around 118.5 million. Additionally, the WHO suggests that blood donations be screened for illnesses before use, including hepatitis B, syphilis, and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).


Blood Screening Market Segment Insights


Blood Screening Technology Insights


Based on materials, the Blood Screening Market segmentation includes nucleic acid amplification tests, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and next-generation sequencing. The nucleic acid amplification tests segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing to around ~45-47% of the Blood Screening Market revenue. The advanced benefits of nucleic acid amplification test technology, such as high specificity and sensitivity for early detection, account for most of the share. The test detects nucleic acid sooner than other screening methods, narrowing the window period for HBV, HCV, and HIV infections. In addition, its largest share is also influenced by the technology's widespread use in hospitals, clinical labs, and blood banks. Moreover, the widespread adoption of this technology in developing and emerging markets creates new avenues for the segment's expansion.

Blood Screening Product & Services Insights


Applications have bifurcated the Blood Screening Market data into reagents and instruments. The reagents segment dominated the market in 2022 and is anticipated to be the faster-growing segment in the forecast period 2022-2030. Reagents, a recurring expense, are widely used in immunoassays and molecular tests. Factors such as increased blood donations and transfusion-related screenings, as well as the increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, are driving the growth of this segment. Additionally, the COVID-19 outbreak has increased serological testing, which has helped grow this market segment. These kits have uses in clinical chemistry, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), diabetes, in vitro and molecular diagnostics, test strips, and the detection of illicit drugs. Reagents and kits are also used privately or at the Point of Care (POC) for DNA lineage analysis, glucose strips, and at-home pregnancy tests.


Blood Screening End User Insights


Based on End Users, the global Blood Screening Market segmentation has been divided into hospitals, clinics, and others. Hospitals held the most prominent segment share in 2022 due to the increasing frequency of blood transfusion procedures in these settings. Many hospitals worldwide use patient blood management programs to help with transfusion, and screening practices, primarily to improve patient outcomes, cut costs and conserve blood units. Moreover, growing collaborations between blood centers and hospitals fuel the adoption of blood screening tests in these settings, driving the blood screening market growth throughout the forecast period.


Blood Screening Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North American Blood Screening market accounted for USD 1.14 billion in 2022 and is likely to exhibit a significant CAGR growth over the study period. The region's largest share is mainly attributed to rising blood transfusion-related screenings, increasing infectious disease prevalence, an aging population, the need for early disease detection and monitoring, rising healthcare expenditure, and the growing adoption of technologically advanced blood screening technologies. This region's dominance is further attributed to increased blood donors, widespread implementation of blood screening procedures, and improved patient affordability.


Further, the major countries studied in the global market report are the U.S., Germany, Canada, France, the UK, Spain, Italy, Japan, India, Australia, China, South Korea, and Brazil.

The second-largest market share belongs to the European blood screening market, where respiratory illnesses and cancer are becoming more common. Rising government support and increased private-sector investment in the research and development of various blood screening tests are driving revenue growth in this region. For instance, F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. introduced the Cobas Zika test for Cobas 6800/8800 Systems on December 16, 2019. The Cobas Zika test is designed to screen blood donations in Europe for Zika virus infection by finding RNA in human plasma samples. In addition, the European Union has made blood screening for HCV, HBV, HIV, parvovirus-19, and other viruses mandatory. Further, the German blood screening market held the largest market share, and the UK blood screening market was the fastest-growing market in the European region.


The Asia-Pacific Blood Screening Market is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2022 to 2030, owing to rising patient affordability and key industry players' increased focus on emerging markets. Japan, India, China, Singapore, and Australia contribute significantly to the market in the Asia Pacific region. Moreover, China’s blood screening market held the largest market share, and the Indian blood screening market was the fastest-growing market in the Asia-Pacific region.


India's blood screening market differs from other Asia Pacific nations like China and Japan as of laxer regulatory requirements and the importation of the necessary equipment and materials. Expanded investments by private and international entities, which may help offer practical tests at lower prices, are expected to lead to significant growth in the Indian blood screening industry. India's well-connected network of clinical laboratories and healthcare facilities is accelerating the adoption of blood screening methods.
