PART 1: Global Cord Blood Banking Industry - Market Overview & Outlook
As of 2013, the cord blood banking industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. In 2005,
there were only 23 active cord blood banks worldwide; today there are 485. This represents a 21-fold
increase (2,100%) in industry growth, over only an eight year period.
Furthermore, 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. Cord blood banks now exist in nearly every developed country, as well as within
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 diverse 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
2008, when a Taiwanese company, HealthBanks Biotech Company Ltd., began offering the service. Since then,
the trend of cord tissue storage has had a significant impact on the cord blood banking industry, as 23
companies now offer private cord tissue storage services worldwide. Finally, there is significant variation in
the quality, pricing, and guarantees promised by cord blood banks.

PART 2: Expansion & Growth – Trailing 12-Month Analysis and Future Projections
While the last section investigated where the global cord blood banking industry has been and what has
shaped it, this section explores where it is now and what you can anticipate for the near-term future. It
provides a detailed assessment of current market conditions and near-term projections.
Regional similarities and differences are presented, as following global trends in cord blood banking
provides a strategic advantage. Due to varying regulatory, cultural, technical, and medical differences
between geographic regions of the world, successful trends that emerge in one region can often be
modeled in another.
This section also explores key industry trends for the global cord blood banking industry, including rates of
cord blood storage, scientific publication rates, grant rates, patent rates, and much more. Barriers to
entering the marketplace are also considered, as are novel tactics for driving company growth. Finally,
differences in pricing, technical variables, and corporate variables are explored, allowing cord blood banks
to understand how they compare relative to the competition.
Furthermore, over the past 12 months, the cord blood banking industry has expanded through double
digit growth, due to new entrants in the cord blood industry and revenue growth at existing operations.
Deeper analysis reveals that most existing cord blood banks follow a bi-modal distribution, either
experiencing flat-line growth (less than 3% per annum) or substantively building revenue (25% or more
