Global Organ Transplantation Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global market size for organ transplantation is expected to grow to USD 28.29 bn by 2028 from USD 16.62 billion in 2023, rising at a CAGR of 11.22% from 2023 to 2028.

Organ transplantation is removing organs from one body and placed in another body. This process is also known as allotransplantation. This transplantation saves the life of the person who receives the Organ. The donor and receptor live in the exact location or at different locations. The donated organs can be taken from people when they die, or healthcare systems can take organs like kidneys or part of the liver from an alive person. Organs that can be transplanted include the heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, bone, tendons, ligaments, skin, and parts of the eye, intestine, and pancreas. Organ transplantation is a significant surgery, and placing an organ from one body to another is risky if the Organ has been rejected in the body of the receptor.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the organ transplantation market.

Donor programs and kidney transplants have been reduced during the covid-19 pandemic. The person who's infected with covid-19 and dies due to this infection cannot have a chance to donate an organ like the liver. Due to the severe pandemic and lockdowns, this transplantation operation has been postponed resulting in a declining e-market expansion. Due to national lockdowns and travel restrictions, there is a decrease in road traffic accidents, which reduces transplantation operations. SARS-CoV-2 is mainly spread through airborne droplets. Viral RNA has been found in critically ill patients' hepatocytes, renal tubular cells, and the myocardium. To reduce the virus's spread in operating room staff, they hesitate to accept the Organ of Covid-19-positive patients. A decrease in available ICU beds for maintaining donors during the g pandemic also reduces the market growth.


Growing cases of organ failure are the primary cause of market growth. Organ failure is increasing due to unhealthy lifestyle decisions, excessive alcohol and tobacco use, inactivity, and drug addiction.

Increasing chronic diseases also drives the market forward. For example, a person suffering from a long-term illness may suddenly lose an organ. Therefore, the diseased Organ, such as the kidneys, liver, heart, etc., must be transplanted in these patients. For these significant reasons, the Organ transplantation market grows forward.

Launching technically advanced products, advancements in 3D bioprinting, increasing government initiatives, and rising advanced transplant-related software for treatment provide opportunities for market growth. In addition, some new tissue products such as DeNovo NT Graft and Cand hondrofix Osteochondral Allegra provide benefits during treatment.


The high cost of translation is the major restrain for market growth. Organ donation does not have any price, but organ transplantation requires a lot of money. In addition, the lack of skilled professionals, shortage of organ donors, and strict regulation rules are the challenges to market growth.
