Global Industry Growth Boosters:
Market growth is primarily driven by growing public awareness related to the therapeutic potential of stem cells; development of novel technologies for stem cell preservation, processing, and storage; rising number of hematopoietic stem cell transplantations (HSCTs); and increasing stem cell-based research. On the other hand, the high operational costs associated with stem cell banking and stringent regulatory frameworks are expected to limit market growth. The limited adoption of stem cell banking services across developing countries and socio-ethical concerns related to embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are key challenges faced by the majority of market stakeholders in the stem cell banking services industry.
Driver: Growing awareness on the therapeutic potential of stem cells
With the increased availability of clinical evidence, public awareness regarding the therapeutic potential of stem cells is on the rise across the globe. Moreover, stem cells have been proven to treat ~80 diseases and disorders including hematopoietic disorders, immunodeficiency diseases, metabolic disorders, cancer, and degenerative neuromuscular disorders. With the continued rise in per capita disposable income across developing nations and an expected decline in product costs associated with stem cell therapies, public awareness and the adoption of stem cell therapies, as well as stem cell banking services, are expected to grow during the study period.

Global Industry Segmentation:
By service, rising number of stem cell banks across emerging countries to drive the growth of market
On the basis of service, the stem cell banking market is segmented into sample collection and transportation, sample processing, sample analysis, and sample preservation & storage. The sample preservation & storage segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market in 2019. The large market share of this segment is primarily attributed to the increasing number of hematopoietic stem cell transplantations, increasing stem cell-based research, and high market penetration of stem cell banking services in major healthcare markets are driving the growth of this market segment.
# In 2017, Life Cell International (India), launched upgraded and enhanced its umbilical cord collection kit.
# In 2017, Vita34 AG (Germany) acquired Seracell Pharma AG (Germany) to strengthen its position in the German stem cell banking market.
# In 2016, StemCyte India Therapeutics Pvt. Ltd. (India), a subsidiary of StemCyte (US) received accreditation from The Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) for both public and private stem cell banking services.
# In 2015, Cord Blood Registry (CBR) Systems (US) entered into a collaboration agreement with New York Stem Cell Foundation (US) to develop induced pluripotent stem cells from umbilical cords
Based on application, the personalized banking applications segment is expected to account for the largest share of the stem cell banking market in 2019
Based on application, the global stem cell banking market is segmented into clinical applications, research applications, and personalized banking applications. The personalized banking applications segment is expected to account for the largest share of the stem cell banking in 2019. The growth in this segment is primarily attributed to the premium pricing of service plans charged by service providers and specific advantages offered by personalized banking over community & public banking (such as exclusive member rights for stored stem cells as well as efficient quality analysis, sample testing, and sample processing).
