World Cord Blood Banking Industry - Complete 2015-16 Report adds Complete 2015-16 Global Cord Blood Banking Industry Report to its store.

The global cord blood banking industry has matured substantially over the past few years, creating both serious threats and novel opportunities. Serious threats to the industry include:
  • New accreditation requirements that have increased the cost structure of cord blood banks
  • A decline in cord blood transplants in 2013, within the U.S. and other geographical regions
  • Low rates of turnover for stored cord blood units
  • Expensive cord blood transplantation procedures, costing from $200-300K each
  • Difficulty with educating obstetricians about cellular therapies
  • Poor press coverage in many regions worldwide, including major news outlets

However, there are also emerging opportunities, including:

  • The potential to expand market size through increasing public awareness
  • New clinical trial data supporting applications for hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) from cord blood and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from cord tissue
  • Improving public perception toward stem cell therapies
  • Substantial deal-making within the industry, including mergers, acquisitions, and funding rounds
  • The potential for cross-organizational collaboration through formation of Cord Blood Industry Associations (occurring in within U.S. and South America)
  • A trend toward diversification within the industry, with cord blood banks effectively becoming stem cell banks through the storage of cord blood, cord tissue, and in some cases, placental tissue, amniotic fluid, and more

Since the first stem cell transplant occurred more than 50 years ago (1957), there has been a nearly exponential increase in stem cell transplants, and in late 2012, the millionth stem cell transplant occurred, a landmark event in stem cell medicine (1). Cord blood stem cells have distinct advantages over other sources, including that they are:

  • Younger
  • More adaptable
