The endocrine system consists of a group of glands which produce and release hormones for the appropriate functioning of body functions. The most important function of these glands is to assist the body to change calories into energy to power cells and organs. These glands also play an integral role in determining the status of hormonal disorders in the human body such as diabetes, thyroid diseases, growth disorders and sexual dysfunction. Endocrine glands include adrenal glands, pineal gland, hypothalamus, pituitary glands, parathyroid, Islet cells in pancreas, testes, ovary, thymus and thyroid. A slight alteration in the functioning of any of these glands causes endocrine disorders. Endocrine disorders are classified into two major groups namely hormonal imbalance and disorders developed due to lesions. Some of the major endocrine disorders are diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) adrenal deficiency (e.g. Addison’s disease) and Cushing’s syndrome.
Diabetes testing is the largest market for the endocrine function diagnostics market. According to the International Diabetes Federation, the global prevalence of diabetes is expected to grow from 382 million in 2013 to 592 million in 2035. The growing prevalence of diabetes will serve the global endocrine function diagnostics market as a significant growth rendering driver. Moreover, the high prevalence of other diseases such as hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and polycystic ovary syndrome/PCOS (research results suggest that approximately 5% of the women of reproductive age are affected with this disease) will serve this market as a driver. Some of the other factors that will propel the growth of this market include the introduction of technologically advanced diagnostic technologies, growing market penetration of healthcare IT pertaining to system automations and the constantly improving regulatory and reimbursement frameworks across the globe.
North America holds majority of the market share of the overall endocrine function diagnostics market on account of the presence of high patient awareness levels coupled with relatively higher per capita healthcare expenditures. The Asia-Pacific market however will grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period owing to the presence of high unmet medical needs in emerging economies such as India and China.
