Critical Care Diagnostics Demand Analysis from 2016-2020 Vs Future Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031

As per Fact.MR - a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global market for critical care diagnostics was valued at US$ 1.1 Bn in 2020.

Critical care diagnostics is primarily associated with intensive care of patients dealing with life-threatening conditions, which especially require sophisticated invasive monitoring devices alongside other monitoring and life support systems. The need for critical care diagnostic tests is increasing due to growing demand for rapid diagnosis and treatment and especially the rising geriatric population globally.

The market is primarily driven by increasing global prevalence of chronic and lifestyle-related disorders and advancements in diagnostic technologies.

Rising awareness among people for early diagnosis and treatment, rise in the use of data management and connectivity through interoperability to electronic health records (EHR), and rising adoption of telehealth services are the other factors that are expected to drive the market at a 5.5% CAGR across 2021 to 2031.

How are Technological Advancements Creating Ample Opportunities for Critical Care Diagnostic Providers?

Technology is evolving rapidly. Critical care refers to meeting the needs of the patients who require immediate attention, due to life-threatening health conditions, where the vital organs of the patient’s body are at the risk of failing. The treatment requires advanced therapeutic, monitoring, and diagnostic technology with the objective of stabilizing the functioning of the organs and improving patient conditions.

Early diagnosis will result in quicker treatment, thus eventually reduces recovery time or chances of the health condition becoming severe. Increased demand for targeted health therapy promotes the need for better diagnostic methods.

Using medical diagnostic techniques that provide quick, effective and reliable is important so that doctors can determine quick treatment measures. This includes critical care diagnostic kits, critical care diagnostic pressure monitors, and life-saving monitoring methods that may be invasive or normal.

Such advances in technology have resulted in greater capability, productivity, sensitivity, specificity, and ultimately, improvement in the clinical care of patients.

What are the Restraints being Faced by Critical Care Diagnostic Product Suppliers?

Increased cost of molecular diagnostics and dearth of skilled labour are factors that are expected to hinder growth of the industry. Long validation processes along with high maintenance costs of critical care diagnostics are acting as restraining factors for the growth of the market.

Which Region Offers the Largest Opportunity for Critical Care Diagnostics?

North America accounts for around 50% of the global market share for critical care diagnostics. North America has been witnessing stable growth, but with substantial regional variations.

The need for upgrading the technology remains vital for critical care diagnostics and management. This factor is accompanied by the high cost of a long hospital stay, which involves an operating room procedure. The hospital costs by themselves are very high. The high healthcare expenditure, better infrastructure, and additional involvement by the government are expected to drive the growth of the market in North America.

Furthermore, technological advancements increased access to health care services, and entry of new manufacturers are other factors likely to fuel the market in the region during the forecast period.

Other regional markets that are expected to perform well over the coming years include the Canada critical care diagnostics kits market and the U.K. critical care hematology diagnostics market.
