Human blood, tissues, cells and organs possess the potential to treat damaged tissues and organs with long term benefits. The knowledge of human cells and tissues being utilized for further research and development novel treatment therapies led to the advent of biobanking. Collection, processing and storing of the samples and related data is the basic function of biobanks. Biobanks preserve biological samples such as tissues, cells, saliva, whole blood, plasma, urine, nucleic acid, organs and other biological fluids.
The global biopreservation market is estimated to account for US$ 6,646.2 Mn in terms of value in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ 19,748.6 Mn by the end of 2027.
Global Biopreservation Market: Drivers
Increasing number of biobanks is expected to propel growth of the global biopreservation market over the forecast period. For instance, in March 2020, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, U.S., in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, established a COVID-19 Biobank as a centralized resource to collect, store, and disseminate biological specimens and clinical data for researchers at Columbia University and elsewhere.
Moreover, emergence of COVID-19 is also expected to boost demand for biopreservation in the healthcare sector. For instance, globally, as of 12:48pm CEST, 23 August 2020, there have been 23,057,288 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 800,906 deaths, reported to WHO.
Equipment held dominant position in the global biopreservation market in 2019, accounting for 82.0% share in terms of value, followed by culture media.

Global Biopreservation Market: Restraints
R&D in media solutions, which allow room temperature storage of biospecimens is expected to hinder growth of the global biopreservation market. For instance, Biomatrica, Inc. offers room temperature sample stabilization media solutions such as DNA stable and RNA stable. Such solutions pose a threat to demand for freezers and refrigerators, thereby restricting the market growth.
Moreover, high cost recovery model of biobanking is also expected to limit adoption of biopreservation.
