Organ transplantation is a medical procedure in which the organ is removed from one body and transferred to another body to replace the organ that is missing or damaged. One of the major aspects of organ transplantation is the approval of the patient or the patient’s family. Organ harvesting without prior permission is illegal and a serious crime.
The global market for organ transplantation has been segmented into type, product, type of transplant, treatment, and end-users.
Based on type, the global market for organ transplantation has been segmented into organs, heart, kidney, liver, lungs, and others.
Based on treatment, the global market for organ transplantation has been segmented into immunosuppressant, analgesic, and other. An immunosuppressant is further divided into calcineurin inhibitors, mTOR inhibitor, antiproliferative agents, steroids, and others. Calcineurin Inhibitors are sub-segmented into tacrolimus and cyclosporine. mTOR inhibitor is sub-segmented into sirolimus and everolimus.
The key driver of organ transplant demand is the rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases and organ failure. Increased incidence of kidney disease, over-consumption of alcohol, and insalubrious diets have led to the development of the organ transplantation market. Whereas the high costs of transplantation, the small number of donors, and the rising incidence of organ failure have restricted the industry’s growth.
