Demand for blood and organ transplants in the United States has consistently been on the rise, with patient need in many cases exceeding the capacity of the Blood and Organ Banks industry. Nevertheless, the industry has contended with several challenges during the past five years, including the high labor intensity of matching donors to recipients and a sharp decline in private donations in the wake of the recession. Still, as private health insurance coverage rates increase in the coming five years, revenue will grow, though margins at for-profit operators are expected to shrink as increasingly consolidated hospitals gain greater leverage in negotiations. Steady demand for organ donations, particularly kidneys, will be a primary driver of growth in the industry.
