Today, more than 70% of the global cord blood market is controlled by the world’s 12 largest cord blood banking operators. For both therapeutic and financial reasons, the cord blood industry has been witnessing record levels of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in recent years, with market leaders gaining market share at the expense of smaller competitors and investors vying for buy-in opportunities. Novel pricing strategies, product cross-sells and upsells, and ingenious online and offline marketing strategies are being implemented by the industry’s market leaders. Meanwhile, new technologies to support ex vivo cord blood expansion are advancing at brisk pace.
Substantial cord blood industry consolidation has happened in recent years and investor appetite for cord blood banks has never been stronger. This is because cord blood banks produce stable subscription revenue from long-term storage contracts. At a fundamental level, cord blood banks are both a real estate investment (cryogenic storage facilities) and a regenerative medicine (RM) play.
In addition to an aggressive M&A environment, a growing number of cord blood banks have been venturing into new types of stem cell storage, reproductive services, and related cell therapy applications. Specifically, cord blood, cord tissue, placental blood and tissue, and amniotic fluid have demonstrated intriguing therapeutic promise, causing storage services for these biomaterials to proliferate.
Cord blood has the potential to be an important source of therapeutic cells for a growing range of regenerative medicine applications. According to ClinicalTrials.gov, there are at least 1,200 clinical trials evaluating the use of cord blood stem and progenitor cells. These studies use unmanipulated whole cord blood (total nucleated cells/TNC), mononuclear cells (MNC), or cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). These studies are targeting clinical indications that range from pulmonary diseases to infertility to orthopedic conditions, but the most common area of research is neurologic conditions—such as cerebral palsy, autism, stroke, and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy.
Within the research realm, cord blood products (fresh and cryopreserved) are being offered by a diverse range of major market leaders, including Lonza, STEMCELL Technologies, AllCells, and dozens of others. Within the therapeutic realm, a growing number of companies are exploring the development and commercialization of perinatal products across a diverse range of applications.
