The global stem cell banking market is predicted to grow at 9.1% CAGR during the forecast period with the market size reaching USD 10.5 billion by 2024. The market is driven by the factors such as growing awareness on the therapeutic potential of stem cells, increasing approval of clinical trials in stem cell research, increase in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation procedures, development of novel technologies for stem cell preservation, storage and processing, and increasing investment in stem cell-based research are the primary growth drivers for stem cell banking industry.
Stem cell banking is the method of accumulating cord blood, extorting and cryogenically freezing its stem cells for forthcoming use. Cord blood stem cells are used for treating blood diseases such as sickle cell disease, leukemia, and thalassemia. Initiates are taken by various companies and organizations to broaden awareness regarding stem cells. For instance, in the U.S. CordBloodAwareness.org was formed to increase the awareness about the umbilical cord blood stem cells. Growing global burden of major disease, increasing healthcare expenditure and public awareness related to the therapeutic potential of stem cells are also fueling the growth of the stem cell banking market. Moreover, it has gained immense popularity in emerging economies.
The stem cell banking market is segmented by the source into dental pulp-derived, adipose tissue-derived, bone marrow-derived, placenta, human embryo-derived and other. Of all, placental stem cells account for the major share and are expected to grow at the fastest rate in the global market during the forecast period, due to the increasing number of cord and placenta banks and growing public awareness regarding the therapeutic potential of stem cells.
