The global point of care diagnostics market size was valued at US$ 36 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach over US$ 93.21 billion by 2030 with a registered CAGR of 11.1% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The medical equipment utilized to get an instant result in the investigation (diagnosis & monitoring) of various diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, heart diseases, and others are referred to as point of care (POC) diagnostics in this report. The global point-of-care diagnostics industry has a lot of room for growth for both established and new companies. The point of care diagnostics market is growing due to technological developments in POC devices, rising infectious disease incidence, and increased expenditures by key companies.
The rising occurrences of target disorders, as well as the increased prevalence of infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and AIDS, are boosting the expansion of the point of care diagnostics industry. The growing desire for rapid tests among the general public is also helping the point of care diagnostics industry grow. The need to make the healthcare sector more patient-centered is proven to be a positive factor in the point-of-care diagnostics market’s growth rate. Many patients may find the centralized testing method inconvenient because of it necessitates multiple trips to clinics to complete the entire evaluation process. Point of care devices provides a much-needed boost in the direction of a patient-centric approach. As a result, the point-of-care diagnostics market may see a significant increase in growth rate during the forecast period.
Point of care diagnostics has changed patient care because of their simplicity and efficiency. POC technologies have evolved efficiency. Point of care diagnostics (POC) technologies have evolved and improved as the area of microfluidics has progressed. Microfabrication and microfluidics methods have advanced so much in the last several years that POC devices can now be made at a cheap cost, are simple to use, portable, and produce quick results. In the subject of microfluidics technology, there are numerous research projects underway.
Due to the usage of micro fluids, nano diagnostics, chips, point of care diagnostics is gaining widespread acceptability among patients throughout the world. The samples are taken from the patient’s site for completing tests, and findings can be obtained in a very short amount of time.
The increased frequency of chronic and infectious in developing economies is one of the primary factors driving the growth of point of care diagnostics market. The chronic diseases such as rheumatism, diabetes, and cancer are on the rise around the world for a variety of causes, including an ageing population, unhealthy lifestyle, and environmental factors.
The adoption of glucose monitoring testing kits is driven by factors such as the need for early detection of hyperglycemic and hypoglycemic diabetes, the high prevalence of diabetes, the convenience of continuous glucose monitoring over traditional monitoring, availability of glucose monitors, and increased awareness of the products around the world, and growing technological innovations.
