The blood group typing market is projected to reach USD 3.12 Billion by 2021 from USD 1.95 Billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 9.8%. The increasing demand for blood and blood products, growing number of road accidents and trauma cases that necessitate blood transfusion, need for blood grouping during prenatal testing, and increasing usage of blood group typing in forensic sciences are the major factors fueling the growth of this market.
The blood group typing market is segmented based on product & service, technique, test type, end user, and region. On the basis of product & service, the market is segmented into consumables, instruments, and services. The consumables segment is further categorized into antisera reagents, anti-human globulin reagents, red blood cells reagents, and blood bank saline. The consumables segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increase in blood donation rates and major surgical procedures (including organ transplant procedures) are the key factors driving the growth of this segment.
By technique, the market is classified into PCR-based and microarray techniques, assay-based techniques, massively parallel sequencing, and other techniques. The PCR-based and microarray techniques segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The large share and high growth of this segment can be attributed to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increasing R&D activities focused on understanding the molecular basis of blood and antibody-antigen interactions.
By test type, the market is classified into antibody screening, HLA typing, cross-matching tests, ABO blood tests, and antigen typing. The antibody screening segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this market segment is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of chronic disorders and growing demand for the early diagnosis of diseases.
