Rapid medical diagnosis refers to quick diagnostic tests (deliver results in less than two hours) performed without the use of automated diagnostic equipment. The growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, sexually transmitted diseases, diabetes, infectious diseases, hepatitis and gastrointestinal diseases is the most significant driver of the global rapid medical diagnostic kits market. In addition, this market is driven by factors such as growing patient awareness levels, constantly improving healthcare infrastructure, rising demand for home healthcare and rising prevalence of lifestyle induced disorders such as obesity.
The future of this market will be fuelled by the changing healthcare dynamics in emerging Asian, Latin American and African economies. Rapid medical diagnostic kits will rapidly gain acceptance in these regions owing to the fact that the cost effective nature of rapid medical diagnostic kits perfectly complements the cost sensitive nature of patients in the regions.
North America is expected to dominate the overall market throughout the forecast period. The presence of high per capita healthcare expenditures coupled with high patient awareness levels and the high prevalence of target diseases are some of the factors accounting for its large market share. However, the presence of a large base of patients with unmet medical needs in emerging economies such as India and China will help the Asia-Pacific rapid medical diagnostic kits market grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period (2013 to 2020).
The hospitals and clinics will generate the maximum amount of revenue for this market owing to the high usage rates of rapid medical diagnostic kits in this segment. However, rapidly rising demand for home healthcare will help this segment grow at a relatively faster rate from 2013 to 2020.
