Manufacturers tend to depend on plasma as a primary precursor to manufacture prothrombin complex concentrates, and in the past, they relied on third-party sources for plasma. Manufacturers are now opening their own plasma collection banks to reduce dependence on third-party sources. This trend has been observed to have grown since 2013. The key players operating in the market, such as CSL Behring & Shire, have scaled up their focus on depending on their own sources for plasma.
Compound pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and hospital pharmacies distributing prothrombin complex concentrates are the primary point of contact for patients experiencing hemophilia B and other disorders. The hospital pharmacies segment in the prothrombin complex concentrates market accounted for over 40% revenue share in 2017. The growing demand for cost-effective diagnostic options is also expected to propel the growth of the global prothrombin complex concentrates market over the forecast period.
The manufacturers of prothrombin complex concentrates are particularly focusing on acquisitions, collaborations, and opening plasma banks, where joint collaboration with various organizations is the prime activity to spread awareness regarding the efficiency of prothrombin complex concentrates.
The growing geriatric population & unmet hemophilia therapeutic needs are also expected to be important factors fueling the growth of the prothrombin complex concentrates market over the forecast period. The worldwide incidence of hemophilia is not well known and it is estimated that 75% of people with hemophilia receive inadequate treatment or have no access to the treatment. The growth in the global population over 65 years of age is expected to be the high impact driver for the growth of the market. As per the U.S. Census Board, around 13% of the U.S. population is above 65 years old and this figure is estimated to touch 20 % by the end of 2030.
Development of prothrombin complex concentrates and commercial production are highly intricate and complex. Prothrombin complex concentrates are prepared from pooled plasma. They pose a theoretical risk of transmitting infectious agents, which might survive the extraction and attenuation steps during the manufacturing process. There is a lack of substantial clinical evidence on contraindications and exclusion criteria, which is expected to hinder the growth of the prothrombin complex concentrates market over the forecast period.
