Endocrine Testing Market Size & Trends

The global endocrine testing market size was estimated at USD 12.19 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2024 to 2030. Growing prevalence of endocrine disorders is a major factor contributing to market growth. According to the Springer Nature Limited article published in May 2023, thyroid cancer is the most common type of endocrine cancer and was evaluated to have caused about 11,860 new cases in men and 31,940 new cases in women in the U.S. in 2022. Rising demand for home health care and awareness of routine testing, advancements in product technologies, and increasing investments in research activities for disease understanding are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

U.S. Endocrine Testing market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Advancements in the product technologies fuel the demand for the endocrine testing market. According to the Cureus, Springer Nature Group article published in October 2023, remarkable progress has been made in the treatment of endocrine system diseases and arrhythmia in recent years. Endocrine system disorders include a variety of diseases, such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, and adrenal gland disease. Advances in biomarker identification and genomic profiling have made it possible to make more accurate diagnoses and develop individualized treatment plans. In addition, modern drugs and advanced delivery systems represent greater progress in achieving improved glycemic control and minimizing the adverse effects of endocrine disorders in individuals characterized by improper heart rhythms.

Arrhythmia poses a significant risk to cardiovascular health. Strategies to treat arrhythmia include wearable cardiac monitors, catheter-based ablation techniques, and artificial intelligence (AI)-based predictive algorithms. These advances facilitate early detection, risk stratification, and execution of targeted interventions, ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes. The demand for endocrine testing is increasing as adults become more health conscious and the number of lifestyle-related diseases increases. This increased awareness is contributing to the rise in demand for home health care and point-of-care (POC) devices that deliver faster and more efficient results.

They are easy to use and cost-effective alternative for adults and elderly. According to the article published by the WHO in March 2022, more than 1 billion people around the world were obese out of which 650 million were adults, 340 million were youngsters, and 39 million were children. This number was expected to continue to grow. The WHO estimates that by 2025, about 167 million people, including adults and children, will be in poor health due to being overweight or obese. The prediction of these diseases is likely to impact the market and result in significant growth during the forecast period. Increasing health complications in the elderly population is expected to drive market growth.

According to the National Council on Aging article in August 2023, 94.9% of adults aged 60 years and older have at least one disease, and 78.7% have two or more. Obesity, which affects approximately 42% of individuals aged over 60 years, can also increase the risk of diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. With a rise in the affected population, the number of tests used in endocrinology has increased substantially. These factors are expected to boost market growth.

Test Type Insights

The thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test segment led the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 28.0% in 2023. The increasing prevalence of thyroid disorders and rising awareness of early detection drive the demand for TSH tests. According to the NCBI article published in May 2023, TSH is an important regulator of the immune response and is also involved in maintaining the levels of several hormones, such as progesterone and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), in the human body. These tests assist in diagnosing thyroid dysfunction, a common endocrine issue. TSH tests play a pivotal role in assessing thyroid function by measuring the levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone. As thyroid disorders affect a significant global population, the TSH test becomes helpful in diagnosing and monitoring these conditions.

The human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone test segment is anticipated to witness a significant growth over the forecast period. The evolving landscape of reproductive health, coupled with advancements in fertility treatments, contributes to the expansion of hCG hormone tests. According to the NCBI article published in August 2023, the increasing prevalence of assisted reproductive technologies further boosts demand. These hCG hormone tests are crucial for detecting pregnancy and assessing fertility-related issues. As more individuals opt for fertility treatments and personalized reproductive health solutions, the demand for accurate hCG testing continues to rise. These factors are fueling the needles market growth.

End-use Insights

The hospitals segment dominated the market with a share of 69.3% in 2023. The increasing patient population and demand for comprehensive healthcare services drive endocrine testing demand in hospitals. The trend towards integrated healthcare solutions reinforces the significance of hospitals as key contributors to this market. Hospitals serve as central hubs for endocrine testing, offering a diverse range of diagnostic services under one roof. The accessibility and promptness of testing in a hospital setting make it a preferred choice for individuals seeking comprehensive healthcare solutions.

The commercial laboratories segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030. The outsourcing of diagnostic services, cost-effectiveness, and specialized testing capabilities contribute to the growth of endocrine testing in commercial laboratories. The emphasis on efficient and tailored testing solutions supports the expansion of this segment. Commercial laboratories specialize in providing a wide array of diagnostic testing services, including endocrine testing. Their ability to offer specialized and efficient testing, coupled with the flexibility of outsourcing, positions them as crucial players in the evolving landscape of endocrine diagnostics.

Technology Insights

The tandem mass spectrometry segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 24.5% in 2023. This is because it is often used in conjunction with liquid chromatography, helping in obtaining more accurate results. According to the National MagLab article published in August 2023, the growing need for precision in hormone measurement drives the adoption of tandem mass spectrometry. Its ability to provide high sensitivity and specificity in analyzing multiple analytes simultaneously, enhances the accuracy of endocrine testing. Tandem mass spectrometry stands out as a sophisticated technology that excels in measuring hormones with exceptional precision. Its applications extend to complex endocrine assessments, offering a valuable tool for clinicians seeking detailed insights into hormonal profiles.
