Vacuum blood collection tube is also referred to as Vacutainers. It has a rubber-colored rubber stopper which creates a void seal inside the tube. These vacutainers are test tubes made of either sterile plastic or sterile glass. It may contain additives to store and preserve the specimen before testing. These tubes can store the collected blood samples by avoiding contamination. Based on the color codes the tubes are distinguished as follows:

  • Gold: Clot activator and serum separation gel.

  • Red: Contains clot activator with no serum separation gel.

  • Orange: Contains Thrombin.

  • Green: Contains anticoagulant Serum Heparin.

  • Purple: Contains K2EDTA.

  • Grey: Contains glycolysis inhibitor Sodium fluoride.

  • Light Blue: Contains Sodium citrate.

  • Dark Blue: Contains anticoagulant EDTA.

  • Light Yellow: Contains Sodium Polyanethol Sulfonate (SPS)

The vacutainers are used to avoid injuries caused by needles and contamination by human touch. The tube contains a plastic adapter with an attached double-pointed needle. The vacuum tubes are easy to use, versatile, and produce high-quality blood specimens. Along with this, the major advantages of these tubes are that they are environmentally friendly and have accurate scale readings. The increase in government funding for the healthcare sector will drive the vacuum blood collection tube market. There is an increasing demand for blood transfusion process due to the rising number of accidental casualties. Blood storage devices are required by hospitals for patients with blood loss. This is also a major driving factor for market growth. In November 2020, Intervactechnology OU has launched the packaging system of devices for blood collection devices. The packaging is paper-based, plastic-based, and foil-pack-based available in the set of 1, 2, and 5 tube packs.

The acquisition and mergers by several key players for the advancements of product development and enhancement of manufacturing facilities drive the market. For instance, In June 2021, Sekisui Medical acquired the company Veredus Laboratories. Pte. Ltd. This acquisition will help the company to enhance its stake in the Asian industry. The key players are focusing on developing and advancing research and development by investing in biotechnology companies. This is one of the key drivers to enhance market growth. The increasing awareness for blood donation and the camps arranged for the same propel the vacuum blood collection tube market.

The market is segmented based on type, material, application, end-use, and region. The type segment is further divided into plasma separation tube, heparin tube, EDTA tube, rapid serum tube, serum separating tubes, and others. The material segment is classified into the materials like PEP, polypropylene, and tempered glass. The application segment is divided into biochemical tests, blood routine examinations, and coagulation tests. The end-user segment is divided into hospitals and clinics, blood banks, pathology laboratories, and ambulatory surgical services. Based on regions, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa.

North America leads the vacuum blood collection tube market. This is due to the presence of the major suppliers of the vacutainers present in this region. The prevalence of chronic disease and growing lifestyle-related disorders also propel the vacuum collection tube market in this region. Europe also has a significant stake in the market. India and China are also expected to have exponential growth in the forecast period with the development of infrastructure and setup for the healthcare sector along with a high patient population.
