Blood plasma is the liquid component of blood constituting the extracellular matrix. Blood plasma plays a crucial role in maintaining the electrolyte and osmotic balance whilst preventing infection and blood disorders in the body. It primarily consists of water along with other components such as immunoglobulin, dissolved proteins, glucose, clotting factors, electrolytes and hormones. Plasma derivatives are the concentrates of specific proteins which require pooling of plasma from large number of donors. For instance, it requires more than hundred plasma donations to produce sufficient immunoglobulin for treating an immune deficient patient for one year. This has resulted in lucrative opportunities for technological innovations to improve the productivity of plasma derived products. Rising demand for plasma derived products owing to a huge patient pool and unavailability of alternative treatments, would drive the market to the next level. For instance, in case of haemophilia, currently there is no definite cure, and the patient may require a lifelong infusion of plasma derived products. The major factors contributing in the market growth are, rising disease awareness and education, organized network of donor centres and increasing commitment to research. However, high cost of treatment and safety concerns associated with blood transfusion, are likely to restrict the growth of market.
