Report Description

Biopreservation Market was valued at US$ 5 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Biopreservation provides a broad range of therapeutic and industrial applications for developing cell-based technologies. It is used in numerous healthcare facilities to conserve the functionality and integrity of clinical trial materials such as eggs, sperm, embryos, and other biological materials. Biopreservation preserves the purity and sustainability of biospecimens while also extending their shelf life. Biobanking, a form of biopreservation, is commonly used in medical research related to precision medicine and genomics research. The basic role of biobanks is to collect, process, and store samples and associated records. For instance, in June 2021, Biodesix Inc. a lung cancer diagnostic solutions company, announced a strategic partnership with Datavant to help protect, match, and share health data. Through this partnership, Biodesix anonymizes the lung cancer portion of its expansive sample and data biobank using Datavant’s proprietary tokenization process and connects it to multiple real-world data sets while compliantly and securely protecting patient privacy.


Further, the progression of regenerative medicine for treating and controlling various chronic diseases such as cancer, heart failure, diabetes, including Covid-19 are adding pace to the growth of the biopreservation market. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2020, there were approximately 89,500 cancer cases diagnosed, and about 9,270 cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults aged between 15 to 39 years in the US were recorded.  Hence, regenerative medicine and personalized medicine are expected to witness healthy growth in the future contributing to the overall growth of biopreservation market. Due to government-imposed lockdowns to prevent the spreading of Covid-19, the global biopreservation market has seen a small decline in the short term. Because of the pandemic, the worldwide supply chain stopped operating, which impacted the market. However, in the mid of the pandemic, there has been a rising demand for the preservation of plasmas, bodily fluids, tissues, and organs. Thus, resulted in the positive growth for biopreservation services. The market would remain bullish in the upcoming year. For instance, in March 2020, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, U.S., in partnership with New York-Presbyterian Hospital, established a COVID-19 Biobank as a centralized resource to collect, store, and disseminate biological specimens and clinical data for researchers at Columbia University and elsewhere.
