Report Highlights

  • The organ and tissue transplantation market in the U.S. is estimated at $11.7 billion in 2005 ad is expected to rise at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 5.2% to $15.1 billion by 2010.
  • The transplantation market is estimated at just under $5 billion in 2005 and is expanding at an AAGR of 4.8%.
  • The fastest growing sector is small bowel (intestine) transplantation. Kidney and liver transplantation will account for 78% of the total in 2005.
  • The U.S. tissue transplantation market totaled about $6.8 billion in 2005. It is projected to grow at an AAGR of 5.5%, to $8.9 billion in 2010.


Organ failure and tissue loss account for half the medical spending in the U.S. In theory, transplantation is the last therapeutic option available to people in the final stage of an organ or tissue failure. In reality, the supply of organs or tissues is so limited that for the vast majority of people, transplantation is not an option. At the same time, transplantation outcomes are under renewed scrutiny as insurers try to control healthcare costs.

The organ transplantation currently faces some of its toughest challenges and hurdles. At the same time, exciting fields of research offer hope for overcoming those challenges. Hence, tremendous opportunities exist to meet growing market demand and to cut costs. But, at the same time, competitors have great opportunities to provide equivalent outcomes at reduced cost. This report is a valuable tool for anyone assessing the organ and tissue transplantation market and attempting to devise a strategy to address it successfully.

This BCC study provides an in-depth analysis and forecast of the organ and tissue transplantation markets. The focus is on products and procedures used or under development including techniques, therapies, drugs and diagnostics.
