Blood plasma fights off alien substances that invade the human body and transport nutrients and water. It is composed of various proteins which have high therapeutic value because of their usage in several indications to treat different diseases.
Recent progress in the development of therapeutic protein, major advances in plasma production, growth potential of the Alpha-1 market, and the surging collection centers are the major factors that are leading to the growth of this market. Some of the major market trends are increasing fractionation capacity, growing market potential of AATD, and innovation in therapeutics.
With current lifestyles leading to maximum people being diagnosed with immunodeficiency and clotting deficiencies, the spending on blood plasma has increased many folds in the last few years and will continue in the coming years as well.

China, for example, has shown huge potential with increasing import levels of Albumin and therefore presents huge growth opportunities for companies in the Blood Plasma industry. India is likely to witness a significant growth as well with the increasing hemophilic population in the country and increasing efforts to manufacture blood plasma derivatives in the region, instead of outsourcing them. Japan presently holds the majority of the APAC market share, followed by China and Australia. The market potential of the region has attracted many companies in the space to invest in the region. Some of the key players in the Blood Plasma market are CSL Limited, Shire Plc., Octapharma Inc., Grifols, S.A., CSL Behring and Baxter.
