Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Biobanks market size is expected to be worth around US$ 206.9 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Biobanks market size was valued at US$ 75.9 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.2% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Biobanks continue to evolve with the introduction of new technologies such as NGS and increased focus on genomic medicine. The availability of several types of biospecimens to cater to multiple domains including drug discovery, diagnostics, and others has accelerated the diversification of biorepositories, thereby driving the market.

The quality of biospecimens can significantly influence the disease testing as well as preclinical and clinical research. Regulatory agencies have played a vital role in spurring the adoption of biobanking services by establishing guidelines for the effective management of samples. For instance, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidelines to minimize human hazards while handling COVID-19 samples.

This serves as a model for other biorepositories. Furthermore, as the number of research studies and clinical trials related to COVID-19 is increasing, the demand for high-quality biospecimens is expected to significantly increase in the near future, leading to market growth. In addition, population-based cohort studies are facilitated by biorepositories to estimate the actual seroprevalence. Health Catalyst, Inc., through its Touchstone platform, provides national data related to COVID-19 insights. Such factors are anticipated to contribute to the revenue flow in this space.

Report Highlights

The biobanking equipment segment dominated the market for biobanks and accounted for the largest revenue share of 78.0% in 2020, owing to a rapid increase in the number of new biobanks and the high cost of initial equipment installation. A wide range of equipment is offered to cater to different biobanking processes such as sample preparation, collection, processing, storage, and shipment. The equipment includes cell separators, freezers, thawing equipment, barcode readers, and alarm and monitoring systems.

The Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) segment is anticipated to emerge as a lucrative source of revenue during the forecast period. This is because LIMS plays an important role in COVID-19 biobanking, testing, and research. In April 2020, LabVantage Solutions, Inc. developed a new COVID-19 LIMS solution. Besides, CloudLIMS is offering its cloud LIMS free of charge to biobanks, research facilities, and laboratories undertaking COVID-19 research or testing across the globe.

The biobanking and repository services segment dominated the market for biobanks and accounted for the largest revenue share of 36.0% in 2020. This is owing to the higher market penetration of these services and the increased need for the preservation of biosamples for developing precision medicine and disease-specific research. Expansion of biobanking services from academic research to include clinical enterprises and government initiatives, as well as highly networked and open-ended ventures, has fomented the segment.

The lab processing segment is expected to witness growth in the near future due to the increasing demand for clinical trials and research-related workflows around COVID-19. Many research institutes and companies are engaged in the development of vaccines and research studies for the novel coronavirus. This is expected to increase the demand for lab processing services, such as DNA extraction, plasma/serum isolation, sample retrieval, and sample plating.

The human tissues segment dominated the market for biobanks and accounted for the largest revenue share of 38.0% in 2020. This is owing to a large number of biobanks with facilities to store tissues, easy availability of tissue samples, and availability of advanced technology for storage and retrieval of banked tissues. Growing investment in disease-specific R&D is anticipated to foster the demand for diseased tissue samples such as lymphoma, myeloma, ovarian leukemia, brain, prostate, colorectal carcinoma breast, and lung tissues for oncology studies.

In the effort to advance the research on COVID-19 and improve its diagnosis and treatment, the human tissue segment is expected to witness high demand in the near future. Technological advancements such as the use of for tissue sample/3D-printed mini-organs creation in COVID-19 testing are expected to boost the segment growth.

The number of established stem cell biobanks has been increasing rapidly worldwide. Promising applications of stem cells in regenerative medicine, cell therapy, developmental biology, toxicology, and drug development can be attributed to the rapid increase in the number of stem cell banks, resulting in the lucrative revenue growth of this segment.

The physical/real biobanks segment dominated the market for biobanks and accounted for the largest revenue share of 82.0% in 2020. These biobanks have a well-established network, thereby hold a high revenue share. Rapid progress in the fields of analysis and precision medicine can be attributed to this change in the operating strategy of the biobanks. A large collection of tissue samples from pathological labs, clinical trials, and research projects over the years contributes to the largest share of tissue banks in 2020.

However, in recent years, virtual biobanks have emerged to address problems related to the accessibility of biospecimens. Tissue Solutions (Scotland) and Human Focused Testing (Little port) are examples of organizations whose core operating activity involves procurement and distribution of samples as per requirement. The potential to fulfill the need for biospecimens and the ability to trace and obtain rare samples improves with virtual biobanking. Also, easy accessibility associated with virtual biobanks contributes to the lucrative growth of the segment.

the drug discovery and clinical research application segment dominated the biobanks market with a revenue share of 38.0%. This can be attributed to the ever-increasing demand for bio-sample for new drug testing in clinical studies. Furthermore, the exponential increase in the number of COVID-19 cases across the globe has resulted in an increasing need for vaccine development. Various studies are being conducted to accelerate research in this field.

Mayo Clinic has initiated an observational study for prospectively collecting research biospecimens and clinical data from COVID-19 patients, to enable high-quality research, thereby driving the segment growth. On the other hand, the clinical diagnostics segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth throughout the forecast period. Comparison of biospecimens obtained from healthy and diseased individuals advances the clinical diagnosis process, especially for cancer. It helps investigate the treatment response of the patient and identify a new tumor in a patient with a history of cancer.

North America accounted for the maximum revenue share of 34% in the 2020 global market owing to the continuous investment in the collection, establishment, and processing of large-scale datasets. For instance, in March 2019, the UK Biobank generated exome sequence data from 50,000 people with an objective to advance disease management including prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. That project aims to collect data of about 500,000 people and follow their health.

In March 2020, the Columbia University and New York-Presbyterian Hospital established a COVID-19 biobank for researchers to accelerate their studies. Furthermore, in April 2020, Biogen, Inc., in collaboration with Partners HealthCare and Broad Institute of MIT, announced the association for building a COVID-19 biobank. In April 2020, Québec COVID-19 Biobank began operating in Canada. This biobank was launched by Genome Québec and the Fonds de recherche du Québec. Such developments are expected to drive the revenue flow in this region.
