PART 1: U.S. Cord Blood Banking Industry - Market Overview & Outlook

Stem cells derived from umbilical blood have been used in more than 30,000 transplants worldwide to treat a wide range of blood diseases, genetic and metabolic disorders, immunodeficiencies and various forms of cancer. Additionally, cord blood banks now exist in nearly every developed country, as well as several developing nations. However, there is still significant variation within the industry.

First, there is the divide between private and public cord blood banking, in which private companies serve individual families, while public banks serve the broader public. Additionally, some cord blood banks receive only units from nearby hospitals and birthing centers, while others allow mail-in units from a wide geographic region. There is also variation in the services offered by private cord blood banks, with cord tissue storage emerging as a commercial service in 2010, when the Cord Blood Registry began offering it, to compliment its cord blood banking services. This trend of cord tissue storage has had a significant impact on the cord blood banking industry, with nine private U.S. companies now offering the service. Finally, there is also significant variation in the quality, pricing, and guarantees promised by U.S. cord blood banks.
