Apheresis Equipment Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2012 - 2018
Published 02 November 2015

Apheresis equipment are the devices that receive the blood taken from a patient or donor’s body and separate it into various components such as plasma, platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells. Based upon the requirement of apheresis, one of these isolated components is separated and collected by the apheresis equipment, while the other components are returned back to the body.Apheresis is an advanced and safe medical procedure that enables the removal of only the selected component of a donor’s blood. Apheresis is quickly becoming the choice for managing diseases that require infusion of select blood components in large quantities.

The rising demand for apheresis is largely due to the rising demand for plasma, easy availability of concentrated blood components, advantages of apheresis collection over the collection of whole blood, research for new apheresis therapeutic applications, and ease of use of the components. However, the market faces a number of market restraints such as high cost of apheresis equipment, issues regarding histocompatibility of donors, skepticism about the risk factors of apheresis, and the lack of skilled personnel for handling highly sophisticated apheresis equipment models.

Technological advancements leading to highly sophisticated apheresis equipment

Apheresis equipment finds applications in a number of areas such as treatment of renal diseases, neurology, and hematology. Over the past few decades, the global medical community has been actively engaged in the use of apheresis. Though not a new application, the field of therapeutic apheresis has grown in scope and expanse particularly in the last two decades. Presently, apheresis is preferred above many other therapeutic methods in a variety of diseases, and millions of patients across the globe undergo or benefit from apheresis every year. The rapid technological developments leading to technologically advanced and highly accurate aphesis equipment has helped in rapid evolution of the global apheresis equipment market over the past few years.

Currently, a wide array of sophisticated apheresis equipment is available in the market. Based on two chief technology types, including centrifugation and membrane filtration, present-day apheresis machines are multifunctional, flexible, incorporate the most advanced set of features, and perform a number of tailored activities. A number of processes including plateletpheresis, erythrocytapheresis, photophereis, plasmapheresis, leukapheresis, and LDL-apheresis are undertaken by apheresis equipment.

Market Overview

A U.S.-based market intelligence firm Transparency Market Research states that global market for apheresis equipment will grow at a good CAGR of 11.3% between the years 2012 and 2018. The company adds that the market, which had a net worth of US$1.1 billion, will reach US$2.3 billion by 2018.  

The rising prevalence of a number of chronic diseases, numerous cancers, autoimmune diseases, a wide number of fatal viral infections, and the rising global population of geriatrics have led to an increased demand for plasma and plasma products across the globe. Thus, the global market for apheresis process and consecutively the market for the devices that enable apheresis of blood have seen robust growth in the past few years.

A major share of the apheresis equipment market is held by developed economies, whereas emerging countries are the fastest growing market regions. North America and Europe collectively account for more than half the share of the global apheresis equipment market. Healthcare facilities in these regions are highly sophisticated and are capable of seamlessly fusing latest technological advancements and improved medical devices with their conventional infrastructure.

North America and Europe are also the leaders in terms of research and development of innovative, technically advanced medical devices. Thus, these regions are the hub for the globe’s key apheresis equipment manufacturers. Companies such as Fresenius Medical Care AG, Haemonetics Corporation, and Cerus Corporation, which have a strong hold upon the global sales, are based in North America and Europe.
