Stem cell banking involves the process of collecting and storing stem cells from umbilical cord blood and tissues like adipose tissue and bone marrow. Stem cells have wide applications in treating diseases like blood disorders, autoimmune diseases, cancer, diabetes, and heart diseases. With the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide, the demand for stem cell therapy has increased significantly. Stem cell banking allows individuals to store their stem cells and use them in the future if the need arises. This has increased personalized healthcare options for patients.
The global stem cell banking market is estimated to be valued at US$ 616.11 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
One of the key drivers for the growth of the stem cell banking market is the increasing adoption of personalized medicine. With advancements in genomics and biobanking, there is a shift from standardized therapeutic approaches to more targeted treatment based on an individual’s genetic characteristics. Personalized stem cell therapy requires stem cells to be collected and stored in advance for customized treatment in future. This is driving the need for private and public stem cell banking. Moreover, the increasing prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases is also fueling market growth. Stem cell therapy offers an effective treatment option and shows promising results for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, and brain injuries among others. Hence, more individuals are opting for stem cell banking services to prepare for any medical contingencies in the future.
The global stem cell banking market is dominated by the cord blood segment. Around 80% of stem cell units banked worldwide are cord blood, as it is relatively easy to collect at birth and is more readily available than other sources such as bone marrow. Cord blood has proven successful for the treatment of over 80 diseases including blood cancers, metabolic disorders and immune system diseases.
Political: Regulatory frameworks regarding stem cell collection and storage vary globally. favorable regulations promote greater commercial banking while restrictions hamper market growth.
Economic: Rising disposable incomes and healthcare spending in developing nations fuel market expansion. However, high service costs can deter individuals from banking.
Social: Increasing public awareness about the therapeutic benefits of stem cells and the need for private storage boosts demand. However, ethical concerns regarding embryo destruction limits research in some areas.
Technological: Advancements in stem cell therapies for new conditions and progression towards personalized medicine open new opportunities. Improved storage methods help minimize cell damage over time.
The Global Stem Cell Banking Market Growth is expected to witness high driven by the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, rising success rates of stem cell transplants, and growing awareness about stem cell therapy. The global stem cell banking market is estimated to be valued at US$ 616.11 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031.
Regional analysis: North America dominated the global market in 2021 owing to presence of established private cord banks offering niche services, favorable reimbursement policies, and higher healthcare spending. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market due to rising healthcare expenditure, greater emphasis on research & development, and availability of low-cost services in countries like India and China.
