Global Biobanks Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global biobanks market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.68% between 2023 to 2028. The market size is expected to grow from USD 3.3 billion in 2023 to USD 4.83 billion by 2028.

Biobanks advance biomedical and translational research by preserving and collecting biological samples. The samples, such as human tissues, blood, and nucleic acid, are collected and used to discover disease-relevant biomarkers. These samples are made helpful in the diagnosis and prediction of drug response. The collected data are analyzed and distributed biospecimens for search purposes and treating medical conditions. Regenerative medicine through stem cell technology is essential for the treatment of diseases. Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, and rare genetic disorders are cured using regenerative medicine. Umbilical cord cells and other stem cells are preserved to benefit from existing therapies. Stem cell practices are rising globally and influencing the expansion of new solutions for various diseases.

Impact of COVID-19 on biobanks market:

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant growth across the globe. COVID-19 is an infectious disease that spreads quickly from person to person. To control the spread of the virus, the government has imposed a nationwide lockdown. The outbreak of COVID-19 has shown significant growth in the biobanks market. Governments have established rapid covid-19 biobanks worldwide to collect the biospecimen. The ministry of health and welfare was assigned to establish COVID-19 Biobanks to collect blood samples from patients, helping in research and development activities. During the forecast period, the biobanks market is anticipated to register a much better growth rate.


Technological advancements and YOY growth in chronic diseases are expected to propel the global biobanks market growth.

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases is also propelling the biobanks market. Present medications are incapable of curing a wide range of chronic illnesses such as cancer, immune deficiency, cardiovascular disease, neurological disease, and genetic disease. And if they are available, they have specific side effects. As a result, new therapies to treat these diseases are needed. Biobanks play an essential role in the research for alternative therapies because it provides the majority of the evidence needed for developing new treatments. In addition, biobanks include a large number of biospecimens that can be used in chronic disease studies. As a result, the use of biobanks has grown rapidly over the years.

The government and non-profit organizations' support also helps set up the biobanks; subsequently, the market shows growth over the period.

Genomic testing and stem cell transplantation provide opportunities in the future.

Increasing public awareness of genomic testing and stem cell therapies prides the opportunities for the growth of the biobanks market forward. In genetic disorders, genes and stem cells perform critical roles. They not only replace damaged cells but can also restore them with the aid of engineering. Furthermore, many people opt for cord blood banks for cord stem cell storage. Parents save their baby's cord blood in the hope that it will be helpful in the future. As a result, the number of banks has increased over the last few decades, and the stem cell transplantation process is simplified by preserving cord blood. According to WHO, about 50,000 Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantations are performed yearly, steadily growing.


Strict regulations on biobanks in many countries are slightly expected to hamper the growth rate of the global biobanks market.

High costs associated with biobanks hinder the global biobanks market growth.

Nonetheless, the high cost of biobanks inhibits business growth. To incorporate advanced technical biobanks, expensive machinery and other resources are needed. This raises the operational cost, and the high cost placed on consumers to store their biospecimens lowers the acceptance rate much more. Furthermore, myths about biobanks, a scarcity of trained people, and strict regulation also hinder the growth of the biobanks market. The main challenges are storage issues, regulatory issues, and inexpensive procedures. As a result, biomarker-based research is being adopted throughout the R & D process, from early detection to clinical research and data protection and confidentiality issues.

Biobanks Market in the Asia Pacific:

The Asia Pacific market is to record lucrative growth as biobank awareness grows with the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. In addition, population growth and increased clinical research are other factors that positively impact the development of the region's markets.

Expanding research activity also offers significant growth potential for the biotechnology sector in the region. This growth is due to no small amount of funding received from various governments and private organizations. The presence of regional players also contributes to the development of the market. As the number of newly deposited organic species increases, the Asia Pacific region may record the fastest growth in the forecast period. Countries like Japan, China, South Korea, Thailand, India, Singapore, and Australia have biobank networks globally.
