Market Dynamics

Growing Incidence of Chronic Diseases Fuels Market Growth

The global Point of Care Diagnostics Market is propelled by the rising incidence of various diseases, including cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular illnesses, along with STDs and infectious disorders. This demand is supported by the need for faster and more accessible diagnostic tools. For example, Abbotts m-PIMA HIV-1/2 VL test delivers results within 70 minutes, enabling same-day testing and treatment. The integration of electronic medical records and picture archiving and communication systems has further driven demand for point-of-care diagnostic devices. These user-friendly tools have broadened the scope of use beyond medical professionals to non-medical staff as well.

Market Drivers

In-Home Healthcare Facilities and Government Initiatives Support Market Expansion

The demand for portable and easy-to-use diagnostic devices is set to surge due to the increasing preference for in-home healthcare facilities. Moreover, government programs promoting point-of-care diagnostics are anticipated to contribute to industry expansion. Initiatives like Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) are projected to enhance the utilization of these diagnostic tools. The market is also expected to benefit from the development of point-of-care diagnostics for cancer testing, potentially increasing survival rates through the examination of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs). Investments in the field of point-of-care diagnostics, such as AADs USD 7 million investment in diagnostics for animal and human health, will also drive market growth.

Market Restraints

Alignment Challenges with Central Laboratory Techniques Pose Hindrance

While Point of Care (POC) tests offer speed and accessibility, they often lack alignment with central lab procedures, leading to pre- and post-analytical errors. These errors can impact diagnoses and patient treatment quality, posing a challenge to the widespread acceptance of POC testing. This factor might deter both patients and clinicians from fully embracing these diagnostic tools.
