Research and Markets: Worldwide Market for Blood Products, Blood Testing, Blood Equipment, and Synthetic Blood Products to 2017
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3sjhw2/blood_the) has announced the addition of the "Blood: The Worldwide Market for Blood Products, Blood Testing, Blood Equipment, and Synthetic Blood Products" report to their offering.
“Blood: The Worldwide Market for Blood Products, Blood Testing, Blood Equipment, and Synthetic Blood Products”
The Worldwide Market for Blood Products, Blood Testing, Blood Equipment, and Synthetic Blood Products provides an analysis of all the key market segments involved in this industry, including products, equipment and testing.
The global blood industry has experienced strong growth in recent years and although this brisk expansion will slow somewhat as products continue to mature and pricing pressures increase, growth will remain solid through 2017 as a result of aging populations in the U.S., Europe and Japan; ongoing technology advancements/new product introductions and indications; expansion of health coverage in the U.S. via health care reform; and continued strong promotion of blood donation by collection agencies.
A variety of infectious agents can be present in blood, including viruses (e.g., HIV-1, hepatitis B and C, HTLV, West Nile virus), bacteria, protozoans, Chagas disease, Lyme Disease and prions (e.g., the agent of variant Crueutzfeldt-Jakob disease, which is the human form of mad cow disease). As of 2013, the main residual risk is due to hepatitis B virus - ranging from 10 in Spain to 1.6 per million donations in France and Germany although other conditions such as variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) or HIV may pose high risk in certain regions.
