Apheresis is a medical procedure which deals with removing the blood from the body of patient
or donor, for separating some required individual components from it while simultaneously re-
introducing the remaining blood into the body of the donor or patient.

The apheresis market is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~7.7% during the forecast period
2019–2026. The expansion of this market can be attributed to the rise in the prevalence of
chronic diseases, increase in the surgical procedures and the growing cases of accident or
injury. However, the market is constrained by the high cost of its procedures, lack of skilled
professionals and its awareness especially in the under- developed countries. The ongoing
pandemic duly points out to the dire need of investment in the healthcare sector. The treatment
by the transfusion with convalescent plasma has resurfaced to fight this deadly disease due to
its potential merits. There is an empirical data available on its benefits and the high potential of
this method in the health industry.

The scope of Apheresis market is defined by products devices, applications, procedure,
technology and region. The following report closely analyses this trend in this market by
capturing details of the investment, growth opportunities, and government initiatives in the
upcoming years. The focus is also on some key challenges and their impact on the market.
Therefore, it is a useful tool for the key stakeholders study this market comprehensively.
Based on product, the apheresis market is divided into:


? Devices
? Disposables
Disposables had the higher market share in 2019 and are anticipated to maintain this
throughout the forecast period because of substantial progress in the manufacturing of blood
bags, tubing sets, filters, kits and various instruments and separators. The market of apheresis
devices is growing consistently but at a relatively slower rate. There has been increasing
efficiency in the ability to separate all types of blood components through therapeutics
Application used in apheresis includes:
? Plasmapheresis
? Plateletpheresis
? Erythrocytapheresis
? Leukapheresis
? Photopheresis
Plasmapheresis which is a process to separate plasma, white blood cells, red blood cells and
platelets, had the largest share in the market in 2019 due to the rise in blood-related disorders
and growing demand for plasma- derived medicines.
On the basis of technology, it can be categorized under
? Membrane Filtration
? Centrifugation
These machine functions are used to separate various blood components. Membrane filters are
useful in filtration of plasma from other components such as white blood cells, red blood cells
and platelets However, in centrifugation, specific cells are separated by the use of gravity. This
method is less time consuming and is highly used in Western European regions and Japan. In
2019, it produced maximum revenues in Apheresis market majorly due to its maximum use in

On the basis of methods, the market is divided into:
? Automated Blood Collection
? Therapeutic Apheresis
It is done by extracting individual components such as platelets or plasma from the blood of the
donor. In therapy, the purpose is to remove the defective disease-causing cells from the body of
the patient. The rising instances of cardiovascular and neurological diseases, blood cancer etc
are key factors in the rise of apheresis markets.
Based on region, the market is divided among four key regions of:
? North America
? Europe
? Asia Pacific
? Rest of the World
North America holds the largest share of the apheresis equipment market in as it has one of the
world’s advanced healthcare facilities and high healthcare expenditure. The Asian Pacific
regional market is expected to grow in the period due to the increase in the diseases requiring
blood transfusion and the growing market and infrastructure for healthcare facilities. Also, the
government expenditure on healthcare is expected to rise especially in India which aims at
bringing it to 2.5 % in 2025.
However, there is much scope of improvement globally as the initial investment in this market is
high and its maintenance cost is high. Nevertheless, we see the market is booming with key
providers operating in the global apheresis market include:
? Kaneka Corporation
? LMB Technologie GmbH
? Medica S.p.a
? Miltenyi Biotec
The market is highly competitive due to advancing technology, various global government
initiatives to generate knowledge, and various companies deploying strategies to commercialize
their products.
