  • The focus of this GEN Market & Tech Analysis report is to provide an update on the cord blood marketplace.


    • This report presents some of the up-to-date quantitative market metrics of the cord blood marketplace.
    • This report is based on our continuing industry tracking of this marketplace, plus the 12th International Cord Blood Symposium, held June 5–7, 2014 in San Francisco, CA, which brought together all the stakeholders in this space.
    • Cord blood transplantation is on an unsustainable course driven by increased COGS and downward pressure on revenue generation—we present some of the quantitative metrics of this space and comment on the quantitative trends.
    • Although cord blood transplants offer hope to pediatric and adult patients with various hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic disease classes, the business model underlying this space needs to be adjusted so as to make this space a profitable and sustainable field for all the stakeholders.
