Lack of Bone Marrow Donors Hampered Industry Growth During the Pandemic

This industry was negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to lack of bone marrow donors. The alarming spike in COVID-19 infections forced governments to impose stringent government lockdown regulations, thereby hampering the number of donations. Further, the closure of production facilities created a huge shortage of medical equipment for treating sickle cell disorders. However, the post-COVID-19 phase allowed companies to continue their business activities, thereby fueling market progress after the pandemic.
