On the basis of product, the equipment segment led the global biobanking market with a market share of over 75% in 2021. The rapid increase in the number of biobanks across the globe has led to the higher demand for the biobank equipment, therefore driving the growth of this segment. The high capital investment involved in the acquisition of the equipment has resulted in a higher revenue generation from this segment. There is a wider range of equipment available for various processes such as sample collection, storage, processing, and shipment.
The laboratory information management system (LIMS) is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the outbreak of the COVID-19 and higher application of the LIMS in the COVID biobanking, research, and testing. Furthermore, the introduction of the cloud laboratory information management system is expected to play a crucial role in the growth of this segment.
Based on the services, the biobanking & repository service is estimated to be the largest segment that garnered a market share of over 35% in 2021. This growth is attributable to the higher demand for the disease specific studies and increased need for preserving biosample for the development of precision medicine.
On the other hand, the lab processing is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The rising demand for the clinical trials and research studies on COVID-19 disease is expected to foster the growth of this segment. The higher investments and higher engagement of various companies in the development of vaccines for the COVID-19 is projected to drive the growth of this segment in the forthcoming years.
Based on the biospecimen, the human tissues was the largest segment that accounted for a revenue share of around 38% in 2021. The availability of huge number of biobanks with increased availability of human tissue samples, facilities to store human tissues, and integration of advanced technology for the storage and retrieval of the stored specimens are the major factors that has led to the dominance of this segment.
The human tissues segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment owing to the increased investments on the research and development on the COVID-19 to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
Biobank Type Insights
Depending on the biobank type, the Physical biobanks was the dominant segment in 2021. This segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 80% in 2021. This is the traditional type of biobanks with well-established network and its higher penetration across the globe has led to the dominance of this segment across the globe. The rising developments in the precision medicine and bioinformatics are further expected to drive the growth of the segment.
The virtual biobanks is anticipated to be the most opportunistic segment during the forecast period. The emergence of the virtual biobanks has improved the access to the biospecimens. The rapid emergence of the digital technologies and its integration in the biobanks has led to the growth of the virtual biobanks in the global biobanking market.
On the basis of application, the drug discovery & clinical research was the leading segment, accounting for a market share of around 38% in 2021. The increased demand for the biosamples for its application in the drug tests and clinical research studies has fostered the growth of this segment in the global market. The rapid spread of the COVID-19 disease in 2020 has led to the increased demand for the biosamples for the research and development of drugs for curing COVID-19. Therefore, the increased investments towards the research studies pertaining to the COVID-19 are expected to foster the market growth and this segment is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.
Europe was the leading biobanking market, constituting a market share of around 35% in 2021. The presence of well-established biobanks in the European countries like Denmark, Norway, and Sweden has significant contributions towards the market growth. As per an article of Global Engage, around 40% of the people in Iceland has donated DNA that has been stored in the biobanks. Therefore, the rising supply of samples in Europe has led to the growth of the biobanking industry. The rising investments by the pharmaceutical companies in the research and development and the increased adoption of the virtual biobanking technologies in Europe has favored the market growth in the past few years.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This is attributable to the growing demand for the cell samples and blood samples in the academic research institutes for studies.
