San Jose, CA (Vocus) September 7, 2010
The global market for blood banking and blood products is exhibiting a healthy trend. New infections continue to take a toll on the population across the world, fueling the demand for blood banking and blood products.

The US constitutes the largest regional market for blood banking and blood products, as stated by the new market research report on Blood Banking & Blood Products. In the United States, while 2% of the population receives transfusions annually, another 15% undergo transfusion at least once in their lifetime. On an average, around 50-70 million units of blood, and blood components are transfused in developed countries every year. The developed markets are characterized by increased levels of public awareness, sophistication of blood collection technologies, and governmental support. While developed countries bank blood resources to suffice about 80% of their needs, blood supplies in the developing countries just suffice 40% of the requirements.

Governments of these countries are focused on enhancing healthcare delivery, which includes the blood bank segment.
