Covid-19 Impact on the Leukapheresis Products and Leukopaks Market;
In the optimistic scenario, it could be assumed that the pandemic has created a positive impact on the leukapheresis market. The ongoing clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines could positively impact the leukapheresis products market, as the study of white blood cells is integral in supporting vaccine development. Moreover, some studies are also being carried out to understand the overall effect of COVID-19 on white blood cells. For instance, the NIH is conducting clinical trials that require leukapheresis to understand the effect of SARS-CoV-2 on lymphocytes. In the pessimistic scenario, it could be assumed that the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically lowered the demand for leukapheresis, especially for research purposes, and also reduced the demand for leukopaks. Therapeutic leukapheresis could be classified under essential procedures and, hence, would have resumed early post the stringent regulations, which were imposed in the first and second quarter of 2020 in many parts of the world. However, clinical trials were disrupted during this period and have not fully recovered in the post-lockdown period. This could affect the future demand for leukopaks in the pessimistic scenario.

The diseased leukopaks segment is projected to grow at the highest rate forecast period;
Based on type, segmented into mobilized leukopaks, non-mobilized leukopaks, diseased leukopaks, and isolated PBMCs. In this segment, the diseased leukopaks segment is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. The increasing demand for diseased-state leukopaks for cell interaction studies, drug toxicity studies, preclinical development of cell-based therapeutics, immunotherapy, immune-oncology studies, and regenerative medicine is driving the growth of this segment.
Geographical View in-detailed:
The leukapheresis and leukopaks market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. The large share of this region can be attributed to the increasing adoption of leukapheresis products for the development of leukoreduced plasma and leukoreduced RBCs, growing adoption of leukopaks as a source of primary cells for research applications, increasing number of clinical trials for the development of CAR T-cell therapy using leukopaks.
