Report Description

Plasma Fractionation Market
Plasma Fractionation Market

Plasma Fractionation Market is expected to exceed the market valuation of more than US$ ~43 billion in 2027 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Protein products fractionated from human plasma are an essential class of therapeutics used, often as the only available option, in the prevention, management, and treatment of life-threatening conditions resulting from trauma, congenital deficiencies, immunologic disorders, or infections. Modern plasma product production technology remains largely based on the ethanol fractionation process, but much has evolved in the last few years to improve product purity, to enhance the recovery of immunoglobulin G, and to isolate new plasma proteins, such as α1-protease inhibitor, von Willebrand factor, and protein C. Because of the human origin of the starting material and the pooling of 10,000 to 50,000 donations required for industrial processing, the major risk associated to plasma products is the transmission of blood-borne infectious agents. Most separation methods of blood plasma proteins are based on an initial altering of the physical and chemical properties of plasma or compounds within. This altering of properties leads to a change in solubility, and, ultimately, the precipitation of target plasma proteins within the liquid plasma solution. In some instances, the precipitation of plasma proteins is achieved through a controlled temperature change, known as cryoprecipitation. Most protein precipitation requires the addition of a precipitation or separation agent. Once the protein has precipitated, the protein can be isolated by mechanical or chemical separation methods.

The global Plasma Fractionation market is driven by the rapidly increasing global population. This has led to an intensification of the pressure on natural water resources. Consequently, consumers are shifting from natural water resources to the storage of water via various effective means, such as Plasma Fractionation, to keep the depletion of groundwater level under check. Moreover, due to the minimum maintenance, easy installation process, and availability in a wide range of tank sizes and types, Plasma Fractionation is becoming one of the most popular and adopted water harvesting mechanisms across the globe. Further, governments of several countries are promoting campaigns and initiatives to encourage the adoption of Plasma Fractionation in both domestic as well as industrial sectors. They are also offering tax relaxations and incentives to encourage the use of these systems; for example, the Government of India’s investments into the construction of numerous Plasma Fractionation structures in the rural and urban areas of the country, which is expected to assist in an equal distribution of and accessibility to drinking water. Decreasing fresh water is expected to accelerate the industry in the forecast period.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Product, Immunoglobulins segment holds the major share”

Based on Product, the Plasma Fractionation Market is segmented into Immunoglobulins, Coagulation Factor Concentrates, Albumin, Protease Inhibitors, and Others. Plasma-derived immunoglobulins are giving a new narrative to healthcare across a wide range of autoimmune inflammatory diseases. Clinically relevant antibody specific immunoglobulins include anti-D (anti-Rho), and antiHAV, anti-HBs, anti-tetanus, anti-varicella/herpes zoster and anti-rabies immunoglobulins.

“Amongst Application, Neurology segment holds the major share”

Based on Application, the Plasma Fractionation Market is segmented into Neurology, Immunology, Hematology, Critical care, Pulmonology, and Others. The largest share of this segment is mainly attributed to the surging neurological disorders that require plasma fractionation products and increasing research studies on plasma-derived products for neurological diseases. Additionally, the response of IVIg in a shorter period than steroids or oral immunosuppressants and its effectiveness in a number of disorders of the peripheral and central nervous systems is also a driving factor.
