Today, more than 70% of the global cord blood market is controlled by the world's 12 largest cord blood banking operators. For both therapeutic and financial reasons, the cord blood industry has been witnessing record levels of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in recent years, with market leaders gaining market share at the expense of smaller competitors and investors vying for buy-in opportunities. Novel pricing strategies, product cross-sells and upsells, and ingenious online and offline marketing strategies are being implemented by the industry's market leaders. Meanwhile, new technologies to support ex vivo cord blood expansion are advancing at brisk pace.
Substantial cord blood industry consolidation has happened in recent years and investor appetite for cord blood banks has never been stronger. This is because cord blood banks produce stable subscription revenue from long-term storage contracts. At a fundamental level, cord blood banks are both a real estate play (cryogenic storage facilities) and a regenerative medicine (RM) play.
In addition to an aggressive M&A environment, a growing number of cord blood banks have been venturing into new types of stem cell storage, reproductive services, and related cell therapy applications. Specifically, cord blood, cord tissue, placental tissue, and dental pulp have demonstrated intriguing therapeutic promise, causing storage services for these biomaterials to proliferate.
Cord blood has the potential to be an important source of therapeutic cells for a growing range of regenerative medicine applications. According to ClinicalTrials.gov, there are over 1,300 clinical trials evaluating the use of cord blood stem and progenitor cells. These studies use unmanipulated whole cord blood (total nucleated cells/TNC), mononuclear cells (MNC), or cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). These studies are targeting clinical indications that range from pulmonary diseases to infertility to orthopedic conditions, but the most common area of research is neurologic conditions-such as cerebral palsy, autism, stroke, and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy.
Within the research realm, cord blood products (fresh and cryopreserved) are being offered by a diverse range of major market leaders, including Lonza, STEMCELL Technologies, AllCells, and dozens of others. Within the therapeutic realm, a growing number of companies are exploring the development and commercialization of perinatal products across a diverse range of applications.
At 232 pages in length, this global strategic report presents a comprehensive snapshot of the cord blood and tissue banking market. It includes a detailed market size determination, with breakdown by geography, indication, and type of bank, as well as future projections for each segment through 2027. It reveals the number of cord blood units stored in inventory by the largest cord blood banks worldwide, as well as the total storage count for both public and private units in storage worldwide. It also presents the number of cord blood units (CBUs) released by registries across the world for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT).
It reveals the identities of companies offering cord blood storage, cord blood processing technologies, cord blood expansion technologies, and cord blood therapeutics on a global basis. It provides coverage of recent M&A transactions, including the consolidation plans executed by the twelve largest cord blood operators worldwide. Although cord blood is now used to treat 80 different diseases, this number will expand as regenerative medicine applications begin to receive approvals in major healthcare markets worldwide.
