Market Research Report -- 2,100% Growth for the Cord Blood Banking Industry From 2005 to 2013

ROCKVILLE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/13 -- MarketResearch.com has announced the addition of the market research report "Capitalizing on Opportunities in Cord Blood Industry Growth (2013 Version)" to their product offering.

Stem cells derived from umbilical blood have been used in more than 30,000 transplants worldwide to treat a wide range of blood diseases, genetic and metabolic disorders, immunodeficiencies and various forms of cancer. Additionally, cord blood banks now exist in nearly every developed country, as well as several developing nations. However, there is still significant variation within the industry.

First, there is the divide between private and public cord blood banking, in which private companies serve individual families, while public banks serve the broader public. Additionally, some cord blood banks receive only units from nearby hospitals and birthing centers, while others allow mail-in units from a wide geographic region. There is also variation in the services offered by private cord blood banks, with cord tissue storage emerging as a commercial service in 2010, when the Cord Blood Registry began offering it, to complement its cord blood banking services. This trend of cord tissue storage has had a significant impact on the cord blood banking industry, with nine private U.S. companies now offering the service. Finally, there is also significant variation in the quality, pricing, and guarantees promised by cord blood banks.

Despite this variation, as of 2013, the cord blood banking industry remains one of the fastest growing industries in the world. In 2005, there were only 23 active cord blood banks worldwide; today there are 485. This represents a 21-fold increase (2,100%) in industry growth, over only a seven year period.

Over the past 12 months alone, the cord blood banking industry has expanded through double digit growth, due to new entrants in the cord blood industry and revenue growth at existing operations. Deeper analysis reveals that most existing cord blood banks follow a bi-modal distribution, either experiencing flat-line growth (less than 3% per annum) or substantively building revenue (25% or more per annum).
