The cord blood banking industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. There were only 23 active cord blood banks as of 2005, and now there are 485 worldwide. Cord blood banks now exist within 98 different countries around the world. That is a 21-fold increase (2,100%) in the companies involved in the industry, in less than a ten year period. This rapid market growth represents both an opportunity to profit, as well as swarming competition.

This industry report reveals strategies for dominating the global cord blood banking industry, including tactics for global expansion, patterns in regional dominance, and methods for investing in the sector. A distinctive feature of this report is a global survey of expectant parents who reveal their deepest fears, core expectations, and critical factors influencing buying decisions. It is designed to guide the decision-making of cord blood banks worldwide, as well as to advise investors entering the market. It is a road-map for modeling cord blood banks that have achieved successful and rapid growth. 

It differs from the "Complete 2013-14 U.S. Cord Blood Banking Industry Report" in that it is a strategic overview of how to profit from global growth in cord blood banking, rather than from the U.S. markets alone.
