We are in process of revamping Plasma Fractionation Market with respect to COVID-19 Impact.

Inquire before buying

The plasma fractionation industry has been considered as an area of curiosity in the much larger pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical market. But this camouflages the effects that these essential plasma products have on the healthcare and well-being of the communities around the world. Blood plasma fractionation is the process of separating different components, especially therapeutic proteins present in the blood, with the help of cryoprecipitation and ethanol fractionation. Certain proteins such as fibrinogen, thrombin, prothrombin complex, and others play a major role in disease therapeutics. Fractionated plasma products have proved important in prevention management, and treatment of life-threatening conditions from trauma, immunological disorders, and congenital metabolic deficiencies.

In the current global industry scenario, there are a number of positive factors providing major impetus to the greater the plasma fractionation market growth. Growing usage of plasma proteins in diagnosis, treatment of the complex disorders, and increased R&D to develop plasma-based products for various disease indications are the factors likely to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. Additionally, increasing blood plasma fractionation facilities by major players around the globe and demand for plasma proteins will also push the market value of  this  market. The 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic will have a huge impact on the public health systems across several countries worldwide. Considering the situation, the market is likely to have a positive impact on the maintenance of global health since a number of medical professionals are considering plasma therapy as a form of treatment against COVID-19. This will further drive the global market at a significant rate.

According to data published in the research paper of National Institutes of Health, an estimated 500,000 kg of human albumin and 40,000 kg of intravenous immunoglobulin is produced each year across the globe. Growing usage of immunoglobulin has been one of the key drivers of plasma fractionation products market. Also, rise in China’s plasma fractional industry and emergence of specialty products is anticipated to boost the market during the forecast period.


“Rising Adoption of Immunoglobulin Is Likely to Propel the Plasma Fractionation Market”

One of the crucial and significant drivers for the market growth is the increasing use of immunoglobulins in diagnosis and treatment of the metabolic disorders worldwide. This, as a result, has increased its primacy as a plasma market driver in terms of global market value. In 2018, immunoglobulin held a significant position in the plasma fractionation market share. These are glycoprotein molecules obtained by   and acts as antibodies. Immunoglobulins play a prominent role in recognizing and destruction of bacteria and viruses. Immunoglobulins have been extensively tested in R&D against complex disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and autoimmune disorders. There is an increased sales growth in the IgG products owing to rising demand of IgG for treatment and diagnosis in various regions, thus expected to boost the market growth.

“Establishment of GLP-compliant Plasma Fractionation Facilities to Drive the Market Worldwide”

Another critical driving factor is the rise in improvised and advanced plasma fractionation facilities worldwide. To ensure this, every industry requires a well-established and GLP-compliant fractionation facility unit. Establishing sophisticated facilities is of utmost importance to carry out this process of separating the different components of blood plasma in a microorganism-free environment. Industrialist and biotechnology companies have focused on establishing advanced fractionation units consisting of individual sections for producing different plasma proteins such as albumin, immunoglobulins, clotting factors, etc. Recently, in February 2019, Kedrion Biopharma received USFDA approval for establishing plasma fractionation facility at Melville for manufacturing of plasma proteins. Also, other companies are focused on setup of facility unit which is likely to strengthen the healthcare industry during the forecast period. The establishment of the GLP-compliant facilities is especially critical in light of the 2019-2020 global pandemic, due to the increasing usage of plasma therapy as a potential form of treatment for COVID-19. This, in turn, has led to the increasing demand for plasma therapy.
