Global Point of Care (POC) Diagnostics Market Trends 2017-2019, and CAGR Projections to 2023

Thursday, 10. October 2019 14:55

Dublin, Oct. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Point of Care Diagnostics: Technologies and Global Markets" report has been added to's offering.

Globally, the diagnostic testing business is a multi-billion-dollar industry with intense competition and areas of high growth. The United States is the world's largest single market for diagnostic testing.

This study focuses on POC testing, which is one of the most active segments within the diagnostic industry. POC testing is growing in both home use and POC testing near-patient applications. Both segments are included in this market study.

Major Findings

  • The list of CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) waived tests has expanded and opened new POC diagnostics segments. This waiver is for less complex laboratory tests and allows less qualified personnel to perform them.
  • Moderate skill level tests used at the POC are also increasing, offering more options than ever to health providers.
  • A major force driving the growth of this industry is the effort to provide better patient care by improving the turn-around-time (TAT) that POC testing offers.
  • Other forces include cost containment through shorter time spent in the ER and other critical care environments, the aging population that requires proportionately greater healthcare, the increased incidence of certain diseases, health worker shortages, and technological advances allowing for small, portable, easy-to-use POC devices.
  • Strategic alliances, mergers and acquisitions are allowing companies quick market entry into the POC segment; this trend is being fueled by the accelerating cost of product development.
  • Although the worldwide incidence of diabetes is predicted to double in the next 25 years and the use of testing devices is expected to increase, pricing pressures will likely offset the majority of gains in unit sales.
  • The global POC testing market is led by Roche, Johnson & Johnson, Alere, Abbott, Siemens and Danaher.
