The U.S. therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) market by indication is estimated to reach USD 260.0 million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 11% to 12% during the forecast period (2016 to 2021). The rising incidences of blood disorders and chronic diseases; rapid increase in the aging population; and increasing adoption of therapeutic plasma exchange in rare neurological, hematology, and autoimmune disorders are key factors driving the therapeutic plasma exchange market in the U.S. In this report, the market is segmented by indication, number of patients, and total number of TPE procedures performed by indication.

Therapeutic plasma exchange removes plasma components from blood. A blood cell separator extracts the patient’s plasma and returns red blood cells (RBCs) and platelets in plasma or a plasma-replacing fluid; for this purpose, 5% albumin is preferred to fresh frozen plasma (except for patients with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura) because it causes fewer reactions and transmits no infections. Therapeutic plasma exchange resembles dialysis but, in addition, can remove protein-bound toxic substances. A one-volume exchange removes about 66% of such components. Due to this factor, the awareness among physicians is growing, hence therapeutic plasma exchange is increasingly being adopted in the treatment of rare diseases such as Guillain-Barr syndrome, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), Goodpasture syndrome, and Wegener’s Granulomatosis. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years as well.

The U.S. therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) market by indication is broadly segmented into neurological disorders, hematology disorders, renal disorders, autoimmune disorders, and metabolic disorders. In 2015, the neurological disorders segment accounted for the largest share of the U.S therapeutic plasma exchange market; this segment is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growing prevalence of neurological diseases; increasing clinical response rate for therapeutic plasma exchange in Guillain-Barr? syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, and myasthenia gravis; and growing prevalence of multiple sclerosis in the U.S. are driving the growth in this market segment.

The major players in the U.S. TPE market are Haemonetics Corporation (U.S.), Fresenius Medical Care (Germany), Terumo BCT, Inc. (U.S.), Baxter International Inc. (U.S.), Asahi Kasei Medical Co., Ltd. (Japan), Kawasumi Laboratories Inc. (Japan), B. Braun Melsungen AG (Germany), and HemaCare Corporation (U.S.).
