Disposable Plastic Blood Bag Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The disposable plastic blood bag market is driven by factors, such as growing geriatric population, rising prevalence of various chronic and lifestyle related diseases, and increasing number of government initiatives to promote blood donation. In addition to these factors, the advantageous features of disposable plastic blood bags also augment the growth of the market. It has been observed that the plastic bags facilitate greater adoption of these products for the collection and transportation of human blood.

Further, it has been observed that plastic based disposable blood bags are gaining popularity and have almost replaced glass bottles, that were earlier used for the collection and transportation of blood. This is due to the excessive cleaning and autoclaving requirements involved in the use of glass bottles. In addition, the chances of breakage at any stage of blood collection and transportation are also reduced with the adoption of the plastic bags. Further, these bags also find applications in separating blood and its components such as RBCs and platelets. Hence, these beneficial features of plastic disposable blood bags are fueling the growth of the market.

However, constraints like risk associated with the blood transfusions and arbitrated use of sterilized needles and bags, leading to greater risk of HIV infection and sepsis contraction, limits the growth of the disposable plastic blood bag market.


Surge in the number of mergers and acquisitions is a prominent trend in the disposable plastic blood bag market. The companies operating in this market are seeking to acquire or merge with the other market players in the industry, on account of various strategic business reason.
