Moreover, the introduction of telemedicine in general healthcare practices fueled the home-based testing market, while the healthcare ecosystem's digital connectivity framework powered the health check-up market during the COVID-19 pandemic. The increasing prevalence of life-threatening diseases is one of the key drivers for the industry. Additionally, non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases are increasing, which often remain asymptomatic in the early stages. For instance, as per an AMGA article, more than 30% of the U.S. population suffers from prehypertension, increasing the chances of developing high blood pressure. Regular health check-up allows individuals to manage the condition effectively, as only 1 in 4 U.S. adults have their hypertension under control.

Additionally, government bodies are undertaking initiatives to screen the target population for different medical conditions. For instance, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends yearly screening for adults aged 18 and older to manage blood pressure risks. Similarly, Middle Eastern economies have initiated medical screening programs to raise awareness of the increasing hypertension prevalence. For instance, in May 2023, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) UAE launched a national campaign for the early detection of hypertension. By 2030, UAE plans to reduce the prevalence of high blood pressure by 30%. Hence, increasing recommendations from government bodies will be key drivers for the global market.

The global market is experiencing innovation driven by the adoption of digital technology in the healthcare ecosystem. In the Europe region, countries are integrating medical services to improve healthcare facilities across multiple countries, which is driving the need for digital technologies. For instance, in June 2022, Nordic countries launched Nordic Interoperability Project (NIP) which aims to enable healthcare service providers in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Iceland to evaluate an integrated digital medical ecosystem focused on self-management and preventive care. Additionally, a proposal from the European Commission in May 2022 plans to create a European Health Data Space, which will harness the medical data of nearly 450 million people, thereby establishing cross-border digital healthcare connectivity. Increasing health monitoring through digital platforms will increase the adoption of general & preventive tests over the forecast period.

The availability of health insurance coverage that includes preventive care benefits encourages individuals to undergo routine check-ups, thereby driving market growth. For instance, as per the U.S. CDC, private health insurance in the U.S. covers around 66% of the insured population. In recent years, there has been a shift in insurance policies to prioritize preventive care. Most insurance providers now include preventive care services, such as health check-ups, vaccinations, and screenings, as part of their coverage at no additional cost. Furthermore, insurance companies require policyholders to undergo medical risk assessments as part of the underwriting process. These assessments typically involve health check-ups and help insurers assess the individual's wellness and determine appropriate coverage and premiums. Hence, underwriting processes and growing awareness of preventive care are anticipated to drive market growth.

Furthermore, healthcare professionals widely recommend general health check-ups as they contribute to reducing disease burdens in the future. Moreover, individuals are focusing on proactively managing their well-being, which will drive the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, insurance companies are providing preventive medical services with no-cost sharing benefits, which will help the market growth. For instance, in May 2023, KFF’s article estimated that 151.6 million U.S. citizens were covered by private insurance with a preventive no-cost sharing policy.

The specialized health check-up segment is expected to show the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Specialized health check-ups focus on cardiovascular health, cancer screenings, metabolic disorders, or genetic predispositions. Targeted screenings and tests provide individuals with a comprehensive assessment and early detection of condition-specific risks. For instance, as per Cancer Research UK, an estimated 20.1 million people globally develop cancer each year with deaths exceeding 10 million annually. However, as per WHO report, 30%-50% of all cancer cases and deaths are preventable if targeted screening is diligently performed.

Test Type Insights

The blood glucose tests held the largest share of 21.91% in 2022, which can be attributed to the increasing cases of diabetes across the globe. Blood glucose tests, such as fasting blood sugar (FBS) and oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT), are important in diagnosing and monitoring diabetes. Additionally, early detection of diabetes allows timely intervention and disease management, which can help prevent or delay complications associated with the disease. For instance, the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion estimated that nearly 96 million U.S. adults have prediabetes, while the average prevalence rate of prediabetes has increased by 3% from 2013 to 2020. Hence, the growing prevalence of prediabetes and diabetes is anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the global players in the global market.

The tumor biomarkers segment is expected to register the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Tumor biomarker tests identify individuals with a higher risk of developing cancer-based on their biomarker profiles, family history, or other risk factors. In addition, tumor biomarkers provide valuable information on molecular characteristics, helping to create novel treatments. The inclusion of novel tumor biomarker test in preventive and specialized health check-up plans are expected to drive the segment growth during the forecast period.

Application Insights

The cardiovascular diseases segment held the largest market share of 28.59% in 2022, attributed to increasing disease prevalence, high mortality rates, and advancement in testing products. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the U.S., with conditions such as coronary heart disease (CHD), a major contributor to heart attacks. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 400,000 deaths in the U.S. were directly correlated with CHD. However, medical diagnostic companies are developing novel and highly sensitive CHD tests to reduce disease mortality with an early-stage diagnosis of the disease. For instance, in April 2023, Cardio Diagnostic Holdings Inc. launched a PrecionCHD blood test to detect coronary heart diseases. The platform is built by using the company’s AI and biomarkers such as epigenetic and genetic, which helps in improving the clinical specificity of the CHD test by 75%.

The cancer segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the increasing prevalence of cancer across the economies, with high mortality rates in significant countries. Additionally, early detection of cancer can result in significant healthcare savings. For instance, as per an article published on MJH Life Sciences in November 2020, early diagnosis and screening of cancer can save around USD 26 billion annually. Additionally, cancer-related deaths can be reduced by 24% if cancer diagnosis is done from stage 1 to stage 3. Thereby, healthcare professionals are guiding at-risk people to undergo medical check-ups throughout the year, which is anticipated to contribute to the segment's growth during the forecast period.
