Among its widespread applications, the in-vitro diagnostic market was led by the cardiology & blood disorders segment. Alcohol abuse, smoking, unhealthy diets, reduced physical activity, etc. have resulted in an increased number of cardiovascular diseases. Additionally, diabetes that requires continuous monitoring is driving the growth of the segment. As the result, the cardiology & blood disorders segment accounted for over 20% of the market share. The infectious disease segment, on the other hand, is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of nearly 7%. Increasing incidences of pneumonia, HIV, AIDS, etc. is thrusting the segment forward.

Finally classified on the basis of end-user, the hospital segment held almost 40% of the in-vitro diagnostic market in 2019. This can be attributed to the collaboration of diagnostic centers and hospitals and rise in hospitalization across the globe. Also, improvement in existing healthcare infrastructure and development of new is predicated to enhance the segments hold over the global market. All of these factors combined are generating huge demand for in-vitro diagnostic testing. Besides hospitals, clinics are now collaborating with diagnostic laboratories for commercial advantages. The number of people frequently visiting clinics is steadily growing. Therefore, the clinic segment is anticipated to register a growth rate of approximately 9% over the forecast period.

Market Geography Overview: Based on geography market is segmented as below:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East & Africa (MEA)

North America held the largest share of the in-vitro diagnostic market in 2019. It is predicted to dominate the market throughout the forecast timeline. Rising number of diseases coupled with increased awareness is positively influencing the growth of the market in the region. Furthermore, the presence of well-established players is ensuring the market expansion. Advancing technology, ease in device availability, a well-penetrated healthcare system and various supportive government initiatives are other factors affecting the regional market progress.

Asia – Pacific is estimated to expand at the fastest rate over the forecast period. Growing population, rapid urbanization and changing lifestyle patterns has increased the prevalence of numerous diseases in the region. This, in turn, raises the demand for in-vitro diagnostic tools significantly. Increase in disposable incomes, economic stability in the region and advancing healthcare is steadily developing the in-vitro diagnostic market.

The European in-vitro diagnostic market is envisaged to grow owing to the rising healthcare expenditure and increasing adoption of PoC testing devices. The Middle East and African region will witness a growth due to the growing healthcare infrastructure and entry of global players in the region.

market by region

In-Vitro Diagnostic Market Dynamics:

A) Drivers:

  • Rise in adoption of rapid, minimally invasive and non-invasive diagnostic tools and techniques.

Growing demand from patients for a diagnostic test that are non-invasive and provide results without having to wait to for too long is boosting the development of the in-vitro diagnostic market especially in emerging countries.

  • Rise in global geriatric population

In the United States, the population of elderly people was around 50 million in 2019. In Japan, the elderly accounted for more than a quarter of the total population while the same was over 20% in Germany. The prevalence of age associated disorders/diseases increases directly in proportion with the geriatric population. Therefore, the growing geriatric population is expected to drive the in-vitro diagnostic market forward.

  • Rising number of patients with infectious and chronic diseases

A large number of people from the European region suffer due to pneumonia. Furthermore, nearly 1 million people in the U.S. undergo treatment for this chronic condition. Besides this, diabetes is another chronic disease that is largely affecting majority of the population. Rising number of cases of such chronic diseases and infectious diseases will significantly expand the in-vitro diagnostic market.

  • Rise in global healthcare expenditure

Economic stability, rising income levels and increased awareness among individuals has resulted in growing investment on healthcare. Demand for improved healthcare facilities is generating better testing technologies which, in turn, would help expand the in-vitro diagnostic market.

  • Rise in demand for PoC testing

Adoption of rapid and accurate tests for diagnosis is positively affecting the in-vitro diagnostic market. However, the increasing demand for PoC devices is projected to boost the market growth. Technological advancements in this area are expected to accelerate the market progress. Benefits such as easy access to these tests and quick test results are propelling the market expansion.

B) Restraints

  • Uneven Reimbursement scenario

Developments in the reimbursements schemes adversely affect the in-vitro diagnostic market. For instance, the revision in the reimbursement mechanism by Medicare for few IVD tests have reduced the reimbursement rates by nearly 75%. This, in turn, deters patients and severely affects the market growth.

  • Uncertain Regulatory Environment

Legal and regulatory requirements specific to in-vitro diagnostics are becoming more stringent especially in the North American and European region. This poses challenges for several manufacturers and also discourages small and medium enterprises from entering into the market. Therefore, an uncertain or continuously changing regulatory environment may restrict the in-vitro diagnostic market growth.

C) Opportunities

Rise in demand for molecular diagnostics and an epigenomics-based approach are expected to create numerous opportunities for the growth of the in-vitro diagnostic market.

Recent News and Developments in the market:

  • Roche launched the SARS-CoV-2 antibody test in September 2020. This test provides accurate and quick results.
  • During the same period, Sysmex Corporation launched an antigen detecting reagent for the COVID-19 virus.
  • In May 2020, the U.S. FDA granted the Emergency Use Authorization for Bio-Rad laboratories Inc.’s ddPCR test kit.
  • Becton Dickinson and Company acquired NAT Diagnostics with a view to expand its PoC testing for infectious disease portfolio in May 2020.
