What are the Key Factors Driving Plasma Seperation Tubes Market?

Growing ageing population and sedentary lifestyle accompanied by lack of physical activity amongst working population are leading to the rising cases of chronic and lifestyle diseases.

As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2021, six in every ten adults in the US suffers from chronic diseases while 4 in every 10 adults have nearly two or more chronic diseases.

Canada Statistics Health Survey in March 2019 reported that around 15.7% of Canadian population have a disability which was described as a health disorder or a condition that can cause difficulty in conducting everyday activity.

High prevalence of diabetes, stroke, cancer, heart diseases, and other health concerns is the leading driver resulting in high demand for plasma separation tubes worldwide.

With the growing prevalence of chronic diseases like HIV and HCV, and the threat of outbreaks such as Zika or Corona virus, the need for timely detection and diagnosis of early signs of ailments has become crucial. As a result of this, the demand for centrifugation process is at all time high.

Particularly in hospitals, blood banks and diagnostic centers, the use of centrifugation process using tubes for plasma separation has significantly increased. These tubes contains specialized gels which causes blood to clot and separate plasma from blood. This plasma serum is then utilized in order to diagnose diseases.

Considering this, the surging demand for timely diagnosis will propel growth in the plasma separation tubes market.

What are the Hidden Opportunities in the Plasma Seperation Tubes Market?

Many companies are entering into strategic agreements, mergers, and acquisitions to expand their sales footprints around the globe. Growing research and development activities and expansion of products and distribution channels in developing economies are helping market players to capitalize on untapped market potential.

The increasing demand for sterilized plasma separation tubes in academic laboratories, research institutes, R&D testing labs, and hospitals to collect blood and to separate plasma from blood has positioned plasma separation tubes market to register impressive growth.

Cost effectiveness, easy cleaning process, and lesser time consumption related to the use of plasma separation tubes have made them highly sought-after in the healthcare sector. Availability of disposable tubes with no cleaning or sterilization process requirement has further facilitated growth in the plasma separation tubes market.

What are the Factors Restricting Plasma Separation Tubes Market Growth?

Expiration dates of plasma separation tubes are limited by the shelf life of additives. While in glass tubes, vacuum and water losses are minimal overtime, plastic tubes can endure a measurable loss of vacuum during the shelf life.

Additionally, gels and additives are sensitive to radiations and certain environmental factors which often restricts the determination of the expiration dates for the evacuated tubes. If environmental conditions under which shelved tubes are kept in storage does not comply with those recommended by the producer, it is likely that the draw volume of the tubes will be affected.

Such drawbacks associated with the vacuum blood collection devices may lead to a shift of preference for non-vacuum blood collection devices, thereby, hindering the adoption of vacuum blood collection devices among diagnostic laboratories, hospitals, and clinics which are the major end users of this devices

Futhermore, blood collection and plasma separation are sensitive techniques and negligence in operation or lack of skills can ruin the process. The handling and preservation of blood sample require trained and qualified personnel.

Lack of knowledge and skilled professionals are expected to act as a restraint to the market growth for the life sciences industry which in turn can impact the plasma separation tubes market.

What is the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the Plasma Seperation Tubes Market?

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the plasma separation tubes market. Rising number of patients affected by the novel coronavirus led to an increasing need for detection and diagnosis of symptoms.

Increasing researches for developing vaccination against COVID-19 also fuelled the demand for disposable plasma separation tubes for collecting blood. Manufacturers also have expanded their sales through online sales channels to push their sales in different cities and regions.
