Report Highlights

  • The U.S. market for organ and tissue transplantation and alternatives was worth $18.9 billion in 2007. The market is projected to grow to $20.9 billion in 2008 and $28.2 billion in 2013, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1%.
  • The solid organ segment has the largest share of the market, worth $9.7 billion in 2007 and an estimated $10.5 billion in 2008. This is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% to reach $13.8 billion in 2013.
  • Tissue transplantation generated $9.2 billion in 2007. This should increase to $10.4 billion in 2008 and $14.3 billion in 2013, for a CAGR of 6.5%.



The objective of this study is to provide an in-depth analysis and forecast of the solid organ and tissue transplantation markets. The focus is on products and procedures used or under development for organ and tissue transplantations, including techniques, therapies, drugs, and diagnostics.
Organ transplantation is a dynamic field, with continued progress being made in artificial organs and transplantation methods that reduce rejection and infection. There is increased pressure to perfect transplantation methods because the need for organ donors far outstrips the availability of organs and tissues and governmental regulations have become more stringent. 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.
Despite the lack of organs, the transplantation business continues to innovate through better harvesting and procurement techniques, vastly improved immunosuppression regimes, and advanced tissue matching, which have helped build the organ and tissue transplantation business to a maturing stage. This report will focus on procurement, transplantation by organ, immunosuppressives and other pharmaceuticals, post-transplantation concerns, and alternatives to transplantation. 
Although the organ transplantation business faces tough challenges, it also offers exciting fields of research and tremendous opportunities to meet growing market demand and to cut costs. This report is a valuable tool for anyone assessing the organ and tissue transplantation market and attempting to devise a strategy to successfully address it.  
This study provides a thorough background on the structure of the organ and tissue transplantation market and the chief issues it faces. It offers the information needed to understand the current market and to address the emerging one. This is an invaluable tool for business planners, acquisitions specialists, licensing strategists, product managers, market research analysts, investing consultants, and others interested in the tissue and transplantation market, its products, its participants, and its future.  
This report offers forecasts by product segment from 2008 through 2013, including supporting analyses for projections.  
Product segments covered consist of solid organs (e.g., kidneys, liver, heart-lung, pancreas, intestines) and the tissue transplantation market (e.g., bone, skin, cornea, heart valves), along with the pharmaceuticals that accompany each market. Also included are experimental xenografts and artificial organs; tissue transplants; and cell transplants (e.g., bone marrow, cord blood, peripheral blood, islet cell). The report touches on the use of fetal cells, stem cells, and altered cancer cells. 
The arrangement of this report offers an overview of the organ and tissue transplantation market accompanied by analyses and forecasts for each product type and application.
International markets are discussed, and information is provided on industry structure and the regulatory environment. Profiles of leading companies involved with tissue transplantation provide information on placement within the market and strategic analyses of the companies available and emerging products.  
This report cites autologous products only in relation to their impact on the market for allografts. It does not include blood products, with the exception of peripheral and umbilical cord blood as a source of stem cells.
