The growing prevalence of lifestyle diseases is also expected to contribute to the demand for the endocrine test, thereby contributing to the market growth. Rising cases for diseases such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism is also expected to propel the demand for advanced endocrine testing technologies.

Advancement in technologies such as introduction of easy-to-operate test kits facilitated the penetration of home-based diagnosis, which is user-friendly and cost-effective. Moreover, the target of this market is the geriatric population owing to its increased susceptibility to chronic diseases and the high risk of developing complications at an older age, which makes continuous monitoring essential in these elderly patients.

Owing to increasing health awareness around the world, there has been advancement in home health care along with easy operating home diagnostic kits which are cost-effective and designed with precision. Many new mass spectrometric technologies have been introduced which deliver accurate results in less time and they are highly sensitive.

Mass Spectrometry is now coupled with liquid chromatography for more precision. Telehealth services have also been introduced by some commercial laboratories and stand-alone clinics. Fully automated systems have been designed for faster diagnosis and increased sample size testing.

The rising number of healthcare settings, especially in developing regions is fostering the growth of the endocrine testing market. For instance, in 2014, Saudi Arabia's government allocated USD 28 billion in health and development sectors. With the help of this grant, 17 new hospitals, and the expansion of 137 hospitals and primary health centers are anticipated. Similarly, in Qatar, the number of hospital beds is expected to rise from 4,980 in 2013 to 5,725 in 2018. These expansions are expected to create avenues for the therapeutic market.

Endocrine Testing Market Trends

Rising prevalence of both type I and type II diabetes worldwide is anticipated to boost market growth. Smoking, antimicrobial resistance, adoption of unhealthy & sedentary lifestyles, and alcohol consumption are some of the key factors contributing to the upsurge in the prevalence of diabetes. According to the National Diabetes Federation in December 2021, around 573 million adults were suffering from diabetes, and it is projected to go up to 643 million and 783 million by 2030 and 2045 respectively. Such rapid growth in prevalence is likely to have a high impact on the market growth over the forecast period. 

According to a report from WHO published in March 2022, Obesity affects more than one billion people worldwide, including 39 million children, 340 million adolescents, and 650 million adults. Obesity leads to many chronic disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, deep vein thrombosis, cancer, HIV, pulmonary embolism, and renal diseases. Thus, owing to growing prevalence of chronic conditions, the market for endocrine testing is anticipated to boost during the projected timeframe.

Technological advancements in endocrine testing have been leading to highly accurate results. Currently, there is a high demand for accurate and speedy diagnostic techniques. There have been advancements in endocrine test kits, which are easy to operate, cost-effective, and designed with precision.  For instance, to achieve greater precision, mass spectrometry is now combined with liquid chromatography. This technology is currently being used to overcome drawbacks of traditional methods and to deliver more accurate and consistent results. These advancements in technology are anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period.

Presence of a large geriatric population, which has lower immunity levels and is more susceptible to neurological diseases, cardiovascular disorders, cancers, and spinal injuries, is expected to be a high impact rendering driver of endocrine testing market over the forecast period. According to WHO, the percentage of the world’s geriatric population from 2015 to 2050 is likely to double from 12% to 22%. By 2030, 1 out of 6 people will be in the geriatric population. With increase in geriatric population will increase demand for endocrine tests thus becoming a market driver for the market.

Buyers in this market include hospitals, physicians, and patients in case of home healthcare. Hospitals follow central purchasing policies that demand price discounts. To overcome competition, companies are trying to offer maximum discount as well as schemes such as free maintenance. This might minimize profit margins of manufacturers, thus restraining the market growth. The following commercialization of the tests, as well as high expenditures on research and development for biological systems stimulated by hormones, make endocrine testing manufacturers work hard. As a result, the expense of diagnosing and monitoring hormone secretion levels in the body is very high. The explanation behind the successful introduction and growth of effective endocrine testing systems and methodologies is improved access to advanced technology platforms. As a result, patients with restricted access to advanced endocrine diagnostic techniques are deprived of quality diagnostic measures, resulting in poor patient outcomes. As a result, the market for endocrine testing may be hampered by the high cost of testing technology.

Test Type Insights

Based on test type, the market is segmented into Estradiol (E2), Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), Follicle Stimulating (FSH), Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), Progesterone, Luteinizing Hormone (LH), testosterone, thyroid prolactin, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), cortisol, insulin, and other tests such as gastrin, thymosin, and secretin tests.

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) test accounted for a lucrative share in 2016, This can be attributed to the increasing incidences of TSH-related disorders and the growing awareness regarding the correlation between variations in the thyroid hormones levels and cardiovascular disorders.

The insulin test is anticipated to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The substantial rise in the diabetic population and the growing awareness about diagnosis are anticipated to contribute towards the demand for insulin tests over the forecast period.

Technology Insights

Key technology segments include tandem mass spectrometry, immunoassay, monoclonal & polyclonal antibody technologies, sensors, clinical chemistry technologies, and others such as Liquid Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS).

The tandem mass spectrometry is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to growing use of tandem mass spectrometry in combination with liquid chromatography which helps in overcoming the challenges associated with traditional techniques used for endocrine testing.

Sensor Technology is expected to show the fastest growth among all the segments owing to growing use of biosensors in glucose monitoring for diabetes which is used on routine basis by the individuals to monitor their blood sugar level in undiluted blood samples.

End-use Insights

The market based on end-use is segmented into hospitals, commercial laboratories, ambulatory care centers, and other healthcare settings. The hospital segment accounted for the largest share in 2016 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.
