Blood and organ banks are human welfare institutes that function to save human life or to improve health of patients. A blood bank is a repository wherein blood is either stored in whole form, or as components (blood cells, plasma, and platelets) to be provided in cases of blood deficiency. An organ bank is a medically-allied institution that recovers, processes, stores, and distributes transplantable human organs, bones, and tissues for transplantation.
In the past few decades, the global blood and organ bank market has been displaying healthy growth, with the rise expected to continue for the next few years. As reported by the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), the number of patients waiting to receive an organ transplant is more than one million. Thus, the increasing number of patients waiting to receive organ transplants will lead to a high number of transplant procedures, thereby expanding the global market for blood and organ bank.

Ability of Single Donor to Save Multiple Lives Increasing Demand from Blood and Organ Bank Market
Blood banks collect whole blood from healthy donors, who meet strict criteria pertaining to medical history, physical health, and the resultant possibility of transmission of infectious diseases. For the purpose of organ collection, organ banks collect organs donated either by deceased or living donors. While deceased donors can donate kidneys, liver, heart, pancreas, lungs, and intestinal organs, living donors can provide a single kidney or a portion of the lung, intestine, or liver.
Blood and organ banks are critically important for saving human lives. This is marked by the capability of a single organ and tissue donor to save lives of up to 40-50 patients through donations that are preserved in organ banks for later use. Hence, to improve patient health and save human lives, every year, millions of blood transfusion, blood components transfusion, plasma derivatives transfusion, and organ transplantation processes are carried out.
