The Global Blood Screening Market is expected to register a growth of significant CAGR 9.8% during the forecast period (2018–2023).
Blood screening is a medical process in which the blood is examined for the diagnosis of a specific diseased condition is known as blood screening. Exhaustive screening is essential for all donated blood to confirm that recipients receive the safest products. Scientific advances increase the sensitivity and effectiveness of the tests. For example, in August 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggested the testing of all the donated blood in the U.S. and its territories for Zika virus in order to prevent transmission of this virus through the blood supply. The technology is cheaper and faster than earlier DNA analysis methods. The growth of the market is credited to the rise in demand for blood screening tests due to growing blood donations, increasing awareness about transfusion-transmitted diseases, and technological developments in the industry. Additionally, governments of various countries are in process to mandates testing all donated blood for several viruses.
The global blood screening market has been segmented on the devices, service providers, application, end users.

The Americas is projected to lead the blood screening market in the forecast period. Increasing healthcare awareness, advancement in technology, medical tourism are some other factors that boost the growth of the market. U.S. blood screening market dominated industry in 2017, due to the high demand for quality healthcare, vastly developed healthcare infrastructure as well as growing occurrence of cardiac disease in the region. Frequencies of blood screening are dramatically increasing over the last few years. Lately, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a guidance document suggesting regulations for laboratory developed tests. In addition, In February 2015, the U.S. FDA conducted a workshop to discuss the oversight of NGS. All these factors increase awareness, which would further increase the growth of the industry.
The European market is expected to hold the second largest market share. The market is expected to witness growth owing to the rising patient population, changing lifestyle, and growing elderly population. This is expected to provide favorable backgrounds for the market to grow.
Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing region for the global blood screening market in 2018. It is expected to witness profitable growth over the forecast period due to the existence of favorable healthcare schemes drafted by government agencies Other factors such as growing elderly population, rising demand for advanced and high-end technologies, healthcare reforms for infrastructural development and growing healthcare expenditure are some of the key factors that will accelerate the blood screening market growth during the forecast period.
The Middle East and Africa accounts for the least share due to stringent government policies and low per capita income.
