What Impact Does High Prevalence of Chronic Diseases Have on This Market?

“Rising Incidence of Chronic Diseases to Drive Sales of Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) Kits”

In the past few years, instances of chronic and rare diseases have increased rapidly and this has also fostered a new focus on diagnostics and testing services in healthcare infrastructure across the world.

Increasing demand for rapid diagnosis and rising prevalence of chronic diseases will majorly favor demand for point of care testing solutions such as dipstick POC, lateral flow assay-based POC tests, microfluidic point-of-care testing, etc.

Rising demand for rapid testing kits for diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, etc. is also expected to boost shipments of point of care systems and solutions through 2028.

What Effect Do Stringent Regulatory Mandates Have on Market Growth?

“Strict Regulatory Norms to Slow Down Point of Care Testing Revenue Generation”

Even though rapid testing kits are highly efficient and accurate they have to attain regulatory approval for commercialization and general use in healthcare facilities.

These regulatory bodies have stringent norms and this is why it takes longer for companies to get approval for their products and hence hampers the overall market potential.

Which Region Leads the Global Point of Care Diagnostics Market?

“North America Holds Dominant Market Share”

Did COVID-19 Boost Demand for Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDTs)?

In 2020, the world was faced with an unprecedented outbreak of coronavirus infections and this led to a substantial increase in demand for rapid testing kits to rapidly detect infections and take steps to curb the spread.

While the outbreak of a pandemic led to a sudden drop in routine medical tests this was quickly compensated by the increasing use of rapid polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique testing for the detection of coronavirus infections.

Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) played a crucial role in the management of pandemic and hence the point of care diagnostics market saw robust growth in the year 2020 during the pandemic’s peak time.

Immunoassay technology was also used extensively in point of care tests (POCTs) to ensure proper detection of the rapid spreading coronavirus. Point of care testing providers also launched new solutions to benefit from the high demand in the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • For instance, in 2020, Siemens Healthineers, in order to benefit from the increasing demand for rapid testing for coronavirus infections, announced the launch of a new rapid antigen test kit.

Demand for point of care diagnostics is expected to see a slight drop in the post-pandemic era as the testing required for coronavirus infections decreases owing to a decline in cases and successful vaccination programs across the world.

The point of care diagnostics market is expected to see steady growth through 2028 owing to increasing demand for rapid testing in light of chronic diseases.

Competitive Landscape:

Key point of care diagnostic solution providers are focusing on mergers and acquisitions to increase their market presence on a global scale and are also aiming to fast track product development and research with these efforts.
