Apheresis is a procedure in which the blood is passed through equipment in which one component of the blood is centrifuged and the remainder component is returned back to the donor’s or patient’s circulation. For example during blood donation using apheresis equipment, the procedure involves separation and collection of the plasma or platelets, while returning red blood cells back to the donor blood stream. There are different types of procedures depending upon the constituents of blood undergoing centrifugation i.e. the components being separated and withdrawn such as Plasma (plasmapheresis), Platelets (plateletpheresis), Leukocytes (leukapheresis), Lymphocytes (lymphopheresis or lymphapheresis) and Red blood cells (erythropheresis). Whereas the procedures also has many therapeutic applications in which the diseased component of the blood is removed while the healthy component is returned back to the patient’s circulation. In addition ti this the procedure can also be used in stem cell harvesting.
Apheresis equipment market comprises of the equipment used during apheresis procedure. Some apheresis equipment are regulated only for blood banking purposes. Whereas many centrifuge-type apheresis equipment have been approved by FDA for therapeutic purpose.
Apheresis equipment market is growing, this is attributed to increasing usage of this equipment during blood donation also the equipment is used in many diseases such as severe cryoglobulinemia, Guillain-Barre (GB) syndrome, homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, myasthenia gravis, fulminant Wilson disease etc. In addition to this, apheresis procedure is also used as second line treatment in many other conditions. Growing healthcare expenditure, and rising insurance coverage, aids in the revenue growth of apheresis equipment market. Increasing number of new product launches in centrifuge-type apheresis system drives the market for apheresis equipment. However higher pricing of these systems along with stringent regulations is expected to hamper the growth of the apheresis equipment market over the forecast period.
