Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Blood Platelets Market size is predicted to reach USD 8 billion by the end of 2035, rising at a CAGR of 4% over the forecast period i.e., 2023 - 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of blood platelets was around USD 5.2 billion. The growth of this market is primarily driven by the increasing awareness about the importance of blood donation and the need for platelets has led to an increase in voluntary blood donations. The government, healthcare firms, and non-profit organizations across the globe are carrying out several initiatives to encourage blood and platelet donations.

Moreover, the increasing demand for blood transfusion is giving rise to the global blood platelets market growth. The blood transfusion demand has been significantly growing on account of growing acceptance by the US FDA regarding blood transfusion products consisting of blood platelets and advanced technologies aiding blood donation and storage. The blood to be transfused is first analyzed with the help of blood transfusion diagnostics.

Blood Platelets Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Geriatric Population – The aging population is more prone to conditions requiring platelet transfusion such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and chronic liver disease. As the global population ages, the demand for blood platelets is anticipated to grow due to the high prevalence of age-related health issues.
  • Growing Prevalence of Blood-Related Disorder - With the growing prevalence of chronic blood disorders such as hemophilia, myelofibrosis, and thrombocytopenia, the demand for platelets is growing. As these conditions demand regular platelet transfusion to manage bleeding episodes. Around 324,648 out of 5.5 billion people worldwide have an identified bleeding disorder, reported as by the World Federation of Hemophilia's 2019 annual global survey. 
  • Surge in Number of Surgical Procedures - The increasing number of surgical procedures worldwide also contributes to the increased need for blood platelets. The increase in orthopedic and cardiac surgeries has increased the need for platelets in hospitals. In addition, increased organ transplantation such as kidney, corneal implants, and others has increased the demand for platelets. Recorded by World Observatory on Donations and Transplants, 153,863 organs were transplanted annually in 2019, which is an increase of 4.8% from 2018. 


  • High Risk Related to the Transmission of Infections - Blood transfusions comprise significant health risks. Among these, transmission of infectious organisms remains one of the most concerning complications. Hepatitis B used to be the biggest transfusion risk. Also, there may be a chance of wrong blood group typing while transferring the blood to the patients. However, unnecessary blood transfusions should be avoided to reduce the risk of infection and other complications.  
  • High Treatment Cost Associated
  • Shortage of Blood Donors

Blood Platelets Segmentation 

Application (Platelet Function Disorder, Hemophilia, Thrombocytopenia, Perioperative Indication)

The platelet function disorder segment is assumed to dominate the blood platelets market with a revenue of 51% by the end of 2035. The growth of this market is majorly driven by the growing prevalence of cancer among the population. Chronic myelogenous leukemia and various myeloma cancers result in the development of acquired platelet dysfunction in some cancer patients. Therefore, cancer patients often have to receive platelet transfusions. In addition, chronic platelet dysfunction increases the need for platelet transfusions. The incidence of myeloma in the UK is projected to increase by 11% between 2014 and 2035, reported as by Cancer Research UK Statistics 2021. These figures indicate an increasing demand for platelet transfusions in the treatment of cancer patients. Therefore, platelets are often given to such patients to reduce the need for red blood cells, surgical blood loss, and complications such as reoperation due to bleeding. 

End Users (Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers)

The hospital segment is predicted to witness the largest share of 72% during the time period between 2023 – 2035. The expansion of the segment can be attributed on the back of the accessibility of talented experts in the hospitals. The blood platelets market is expanding as a result of an increase in hospital admissions for patients with cancer, hemophilia, and other severe platelet disorders. Furthermore, higher accessibility of blood parts in hospitals brings about expanded use of blood platelets, bringing about expanded reception. Also, blood platelets are in high demand in hospitals as a result of an increase in the number of surgeries and severe injuries that necessitate blood transfusions. Additionally, promotive reimbursement policies have resulted in high demand for blood platelets in the hospital segment.
