Human serum albumin (HSA) is the most abundant protein in human blood plasma and a product that generates $3.5 billion in revenue globally today for blood protein fractionators. The primary source of HSA is to separate the protein from blood donor-derived plasma. North America and Europe represent more than 80% of the global supply of plasma collection and 71% of blood fractionation volume.  Significant geographic disparities exist in terms of the profitability of plasma protein fractionation and the incentives to expand blood donor collection, screening and testing systems do not exist. In many countries without a revenue stream from other fractionated proteins (like IVIG), the human serum albumin revenue does not support the cost of collecting, screening, fractionating and testing according to the quality standards required by patients and physicians. In addition, recent plasma adventitious agent contaminations have increased scrutiny by regulators. A large proportion of hospitals in the world do not have access to an adequate supply of human serum albumin. As healthcare improves with rising incomes, additional demand for human serum albumin will continue to exceed supply as a result of albumin price controls and limited profitability to implement high quality plasma collection and fractionation capacity.
