Global Point of Care Diagnostics Market Report 2021, Featuring Abbott, Siemens Healthcare, F. Hoffmann-La Roche, Medtronic, Chembio Diagnostics and Philips Healthcare

DUBLIN, Dec. 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — 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.

The global market for point of care diagnostics was valued at $24.8 billion in 2021. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9% to reach $43.5 billion by 2026. The major factor contributing to the growth of the POC diagnostics market is the rising prevalence of infectious diseases. POC tests help to enhance the management of infectious diseases, particularly in developing countries where it is difficult to access timely diagnosis due to a lack of healthcare infrastructure.

Funding and grants from governments for the advancement and development of innovative products are contributing towards the adoption of innovative technologies for infectious diseases diagnosis. All such innovation within the market is expected to increase the reach of POC devices to remote areas in developing and underdeveloped countries and make them pocket friendly and can be adopted by the economically challenged populace. The increasing prevalence of diabetes and other chronic diseases is also contributing towards growth in the global market.

The strict regulation for approval and commercialization is the primary factor restraining the growth of the market. POC devices are being regulated as other diagnostics devices and In-Vitro devices that are regulated by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). POC devices are considered by FDA as high risk and therefore require pre-market approval. Strict healthcare standards and high regulatory barriers have a significant impact on the introduction of innovative technology. The regulations and standards are strict and require substantial expertise to navigate; this resulted in increased times for pre-market approval and commercialization process
