San Jose, California (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – The global blood processing supplies and equipment market is driven by a number of factors, including advent of innovative products, technological advancements, growing demand for safe and enhanced quality of blood, strong promotional campaigns for blood donation, aging population, and increasing incidences of Hepatitis and HIV. Changes in blood collection procedures, development of innovative pre-donation and post-donation screening test kits, and steady migration from manual collection to automated collection machines, are all poised to benefit growth in the market.
Over the years, safety has emerged as a key concern in blood products sourced from blood banks. Companies are developing automated blood collection devices that minimize contamination risk associated with blood collection and processing. Reduced human intervention lowers the chances of contamination. Automated alternatives, which include autologous disposables and devices, have been gaining significant popularity over the last couple of years. Other major technological advancements in the blood industry include development of blood bags with blood collection monitors, and integrated filers as well as tube sealers. Blood collection monitors are also being launched with other advanced features such as fully-automated pre-installed software systems and multiple donor management for better control of blood collection quality, as well as donor health during the donation process.
Companies have also developed tube sealers with rapid charging facilities to ensure the high quality sealing on a continuous basis with relatively less charging times. RFID technology enabled blood bank refrigerators represent the latest innovation in blood refrigeration.
As stated by the new market research report on Blood Processing Supplies and Equipment, Europe represents largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 8.1% over the analysis period. Growing population, developing healthcare infrastructure, support from the government, and availability of advanced blood collection technologies are major factors driving growth in the region.
