The cord blood banking industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. There were only 23 active cord blood banks as of 2005, and now there are 485 worldwide. Cord blood banks now exist in nearly every developed country, as well as within most developing nations. That is a 21-fold increase (2,100%) in the companies involved in the industry, over only a seven year period. This rapid market growth represents both an opportunity to profit, as well as swarming competition.

This recently launched industry report \"Capitalizing on Opportunities in Cord Blood Industry Growth\" addresses this issue by strategically positioning cord blood banks to expand, profit, and outmanoeuvre the competition. 

The report also reveals strategies for dominating the global cord blood banking industry, including tactics for global expansion, patterns in regional dominance, and methods for investing in the sector. A distinctive feature is a global survey of expectant parents who reveal their deepest fears, core expectations, and critical factors influencing buying decisions. It is designed to guide the decision-making of cord blood banks worldwide, as well as to advise private, corporate, and institutional investors entering into the global cord blood banking market.

It differs from the \"Complete U.S. 2012-13 Cord Blood Banking Industry Report,\" in that it is a strategic overview of how to profit from the global cord blood banking market, rather than from the U.S. markets alone.

The first part of the industry report, titled “Global Cord Blood Banking Industry Market Overview & Outlook,” lays a foundation for industry competence by exploring where the cord blood banking industry has been, what has shaped it, and where it is going. With this detailed knowledge, cord blood banks can quickly identify their relative strength within the marketplace. 

The second part of the report, titled “Expansion and Growth – Trailing 12-Month Analysis & Forward Projections,” reveals trends within the global cord blood banking industry and what cord blood banks should anticipate for the near-term future. This section explores trends across a large variety of industry metrics and provides forward five-year projections. Critically, it also explores strategies of fast-growth companies and compares their attributes to slow-growth companies, providing a comprehensive road-map to industry dominance. To guide industry competitors, this section considers the following questions:

  • What factors are causing a substantial number of new cord blood banks to open up business?
  • What will be the effect of these new entrants to the cord blood banking industry?
  • How can existing competitors maintain a position of dominance among this trend?

The third and final part of the report, titled “Comprehensive Parent Survey Continuing to Grow by Listening to Expectant Parents,” contains survey results from more than 200 parents worldwide. This section contains findings that reveal how expectant parents worldwide learn about cord blood banking, think about the process, and make key decisions. Use it to claim control of your ability to sell your services more effectively. Key findings from this survey include how to: 

  • Strategically position cord blood and cord tissue services
  • Understand why expectant parents bank publicly, privately, or not at all
  • Communicate successfully with parents
  • Effectively educate parents
  • Prioritize an advertising budget
  • Sell more effectively

In summary, this section is your guide to growing, expanding, and profiting, by listening to the needs of your clients – expectant parents.

Readers of the report are taken through the process of understanding where the cord blood banking industry has been and what has shaped it, where it is now and what should be anticipated for the near-term future. This expanded 2013 version of the report reveals up-to-date strategies for dominating the cord blood banking industry, investigates tactics for global expansion, and identifies patterns in regional dominance– which is valuable because there has been rapid industry growth within specific regions of the world.

Your Roadmap to the Next 5 Years

Over the past 12 months, the cord blood banking industry has expanded through double digit growth, due to new entrants in the cord blood banking industry, as well as revenue growth at existing operations. To guide industry competitors, this report carefully considers the following questions:

  • What factors are causing a substantial number of new cord blood banks to open up business?
  • What will be the effect of these new entrants to the cord blood banking industry?
  • How can existing competitors maintain a position of dominance among this trend?
Deeper analysis also reveals that existing cord blood banks follow a bi-modal distribution, either experiencing flat-line growth (less than 3% per annum) or substantively building revenue (25% or more per annum).

While a similar bimodal distribution existed in the prior 12 month period (trailing 12 to 24 months), the peaks have continued to separate over the past 12 months, with the average flat-growth company staying stagnant and the average revenue growth company increasing its per annum growth rate. This trend indicates an increasing shift in dominance toward fast-growth companies, which begs the questions:

  • What are the differences among the cord blood banks that are experiencing flat-line growth, versus those that have substantively building revenue?
  • Why are the fast-growth companies continuing to increase their dominance relative to the flat growth companies? 
  • Why Claim the Report?

As mentioned above, this industry report is a comprehensive road-map for operating a successful cord blood bank. It takes you from the where the industry has been, to where it is now, to where is is going in the next five years. In addition, it gives you insider knowledge of how expectant parents think, so you can get there fast.

It teaches you management of a private cord blood bank how to strategically position your services to increase market share and attract expectant parents to your company.

Rather than focusing on the “medical” and “technical” aspects of cord blood stem cells, the report focuses on the practical and strategic applications necessary to successfully run a private cord blood bank. While the medical angle is interesting, you already know that part of you business. It would tell you nothing about strategic actions to take to have more expectant parents purchasing services from you, instead of the competition.

Instead, this industry report is focused on your needs and includes content relevant to what you want to know how to optimally price your services, criteria that make expectant parents likely to purchase private cord blood banking services, and how to grow in a competitive industry.

Like it or not, the cord blood banking industry is getting more and more competitive every day. By doing nothing, clients will likely be won over by better informed, or simply more aggressive, competitors.

The Many Benefits to You

Exclusive Specialty

BioInformant only produce stem cell industry data. Because stem cells are richly populated in cord blood, we have been tracking the cord blood industry since 2005, when it was an early stage market. Unlike BioInformant, other publishers of cord blood data are broad range publishers without expertise in any specific area – this limits their ability to produce exactly what you need.

We do understand the nuances of your business, because we have been analyzing your industry since 2005.

7 Years of Extensive Research & Experience

When we started tracking the cord blood banking industry seven years ago there were only 23 active cord blood banks. There are now 485 worldwide. That is a 21-fold increase (2,100%) in the number of companies involved within this industry, over only an eight year period.

This rapid market growth represents both an opportunity to profit, as well as swarming competition. Within the United States, there are now 70 active public and private cord blood banks, spread across nearly every U.S. state. Worldwide, there has been rapid industry expansion as well, with cord blood banks now in existence within nearly every developed country.
