Global Blood Screening Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global blood screening market size is predicted to worth USD 3.87 billion by 2028 from valuing USD 2.48 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 9.3% during the forecast period. The market is exhibiting obvious potential in the specified gauging period. The market keeps on picking up the energy with the quick increment in the reception of these devices among patients and dispatch of mechanically propelled, easy-to-understand devices into the market.

Blood screening refers to a variety of tests performed on blood samples to diagnose illnesses including AIDS, hepatitis, and syphilis, as well as other clinical situations, including pregnancy. It aids in detecting and preventing diseases and a range of other conditions such as infections and cancer. Before donating blood, blood donors are subjected to screening to prevent the transmission of infection. Blood is a liquid-based biological substance that has multiple cells and proteins floating in it. It is a fluid that contains red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets and circulates throughout the body. Through capillaries, arteries, and veins, it transports oxygen and nutrients to the body's cells. It also aids the body's removal of metabolic waste and carbon dioxide. Blood screening aids in detecting and preventing illnesses and a range of other diseases such as infections and cancer.

The nucleic acid amplification test was initially introduced in six European countries, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, and Switzerland, in early 1999 and 2001.


Y-O-Y in the growth in the number of blood donations, the prevalence of newer pathogens, and the increased incidence of contagious diseases are primarily accelerating the growth rate of the global blood screening market.

Increasing blood donations among people is one of the significant factors propelling the global blood screening market during the forecast period. Blood donation among the people has increased from 3.4% in 2008 to 3.6% in 2010. Nearly 2million people donate blood regularly in Germany every year. Additionally, factors such as a high patient pool and increasing disposable income of the people across the regions are likely to propel the market. Advancing healthcare infrastructure, raising awareness regarding maintaining blood safety, and rising healthcare expenditure are expected to drive the blood screening market during the forecast period. Acquisitions and mergers and critical developments, and supply chain trends are driving the market. Moreover, initiatives, investment, and funding the government to create awareness among the people about the safety blood donation influence market growth. In addition, technological advancements in blood screening methods drive market growth. Over the forecast period, rising technical developments and introducing new technologies such as pathogen reduction technology, microbiological screening, and multiplexing are likely to provide significant revenue possibilities for companies in the target market. The most common blood-screening tests include screening donated blood in blood banks for transfusion-transmitted pathogens and blood testing for infectious illnesses in hospitals and clinical laboratories, which positively impacts the market revenue.

Furthermore, emerging countries worldwide provide lucrative growth opportunities for market players operating the market, thereby increasing market growth. growing blood campaigns across the developing countries and increasing voluntary blood donors uplift the market growth. Growing need to diagnose samples and increasing infectious diseases is elevating the demand of the market. The government has taken so many initiatives to bring awareness among the people related to donating blood and screening before transfusion, which accelerates the blood screening market growth. 

The global blood screening market is expected to grow rapidly shortly and to provide lucrative growth opportunities such as the emergence of microbiology screening, multiplexing, and pathogen reduction technologies. Also, factors like the increasing economies of developing nations and technological improvements are expected to offer another set of opportunities for the market's growth.


The primary factor restraining the blood screening market is the high cost, which needed to be reduced. Lack of awareness among the people about donating blood may also hamper market growth. Lack of lab technicians among the hospitals and clinical laboratories may also restrict the market growth over the review period. Strict regulations to approve new screening devices into the market over the analysis period may limit the growth. The availability of other alternative technologies like digital immunoassays restricts the blood screening market growth over the period.

Impact of covid-19 on the global blood screening market:

However, due to the pandemic's lockdown and limitations, the number of blood donors and blood transfusion-related tests has decreased. Due to the lockdowns and the fear of becoming infected, the number of blood donations decreased dramatically, as did the number of blood transfusion-related tests. The emergence of COVID-19 has influenced the blood screening market both positively and negatively during the pandemic period. Owing to the disease outbreak, major companies worldwide have been performing several serological tests to detect novel coronavirus antibodies. For instance, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to around 50 serological tests that detect COVID-19 antibodies. These tests are used to determine the virus's seroprevalence in a specific population. Furthermore, there has been a significant increase in hospitalizations, which is projected to boost demand for donated blood or its components and positively impact the blood supply. However, after the lockdown limitations were lifted, the amount of blood donors has soared. The American Red Cross has also begun testing all blood, platelets, and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies to inform donors about their exposure to the coronavirus. Thus, the overall impact of COVID-19 is expected to contribute positively toward the growth of the blood screening market.
