U.S. Heart Failure POC And LOC Devices Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) technology for diagnostics has been implemented for both Point-of-care (POC) diagnostics and central lab testing. However, only POC tests are commercially available for heart failure diagnosis in the current market. This, in turn, has created lucrative opportunities for emerging diagnostic developers who are striving to establish a substantive position in this market.

The presence of several clinical manifestations of heart failure and symptoms that are often non-specific has made the conventional diagnosis mode complicated. This has triggered the development of many POC tests, accelerating decision-making for individuals with the risk of developing heart disorders. POC tests help detect cardiac markers and other time-critical parameters to address challenges of health disparities efficiently.

Furthermore, government bodies are undertaking several measures to circumvent the rising healthcare expenditure caused due to hospital admissions. For instance, the European Commission has funded a project- KardiaTool, that aimed at developing low-cost LOC assays for detecting biomarkers from saliva samples to detect the risk of heart failure.

The absence of a well-defined reimbursement for the POC devices equipped with a cassette or cartridge that carries out multiple tests restrains the growth to a certain extent. To address this challenge, the manufacturers are engaged in strategizing for effective reimbursement for multi-analyte POC tests.

Test Type Insights

Based on the test type, the market is segmented into proteomic, metabolomic, and genomic testing. The proteomic testing segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 50.4% in 2022. Technological advancements in omics studies have encouraged research on the role of genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics in cardiovascular events. This, in turn, helps identify novel biomarkers and assays to predict the risk of a heart attack before any symptom occurs. For instance, in April 2022, scientists at SomaLogic Inc. developed a blood test that can be used to predict an individual’s risk of heart attack, stroke, failure, and dying from these conditions in the upcoming four years.

The metabolomics testing segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 17.8% during the forecast period. N-terminal pro-b-type natriuretic peptide (NTproBNP), troponin, and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) are some common peptides assessed to monitor cardiovascular events. Particularly, Troponin T (TnT) and Troponin I (TnI) are the most specific protein biomarkers linked with myocardial infarction.

Thus, most companies have targeted this biomarker, considering it a key revenue-generating segment. The presence of a relatively high number of commercial POC devices based on protein marker testing has contributed to the estimated share of proteomic testing.

Technology Insights

The market is segmented based on technology into microfluidics, array-based systems, and others. The microfluidics segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 48.8% in 2022 and is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 17.5% during the forecast period. Growing concern about mortality and morbidity rates due to cardiovascular diseases (CVD) has driven the demand for rapid, portable, and inexpensive biosensing devices for screening cardiovascular events. POC biosensors help in the early diagnosis of heart failure without needing hospital visits, eliminating the need for tedious and expensive laboratory tests.

In the past years, microfluidic biosensors have witnessed an increase in adoption rate as they allow functional protocols employed in central laboratories into a portable chip to integrate and miniaturize. Moreover, it offers several benefits, such as less consumption of reagent/sample and rapid turnaround time.

As a result, in the past few years, POC applications of paper-based 3D microfluidics have increased considerably owing to their efficiency in liquid manipulation at a high level. These factors have led to the largest revenue share of microfluidic technology. Growing advances in this technique are expected to drive the segment in the coming years.

End Use Insights

The market is segmented into clinics, hospitals, homes, assisted living healthcare facilities, and laboratories based on end use. The clinic's segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 37.7% in 2022. POC testing has proven efficient in meeting critical needs within various healthcare settings. This includes inpatient settings such as operating rooms, emergency rooms, or intensive care units, as well as outpatient settings such as physician's offices, clinics, and home healthcare nursing centers.

In outpatient clinics, healthcare personnel seek to substitute curative medicines with predictive disease testing for the chances of heart failure. Outpatient clinics are using POC devices at a larger scale for on-time and effective diagnosis to make informed decisions for the treatment of heart failure. This, in turn, has led to the dominance of clinics over other end use settings.

Moreover, research and development, advancement in technology, use of AI, and development of new tools and tests are expected to further add to the efficiency of POCs in the market. For instance, in May 2023, research funded by the British Heart Foundation and NIHR developed an algorithm called CoDe-ACS which uses patient information such as age, sex, heart measurements, and other results to predict a person's likelihood of a heart attack.

Global Heart Failure POC And LOC Devices Market share and size, 2022

The home segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 18.3% due to advancements in POC and LOC devices. Anyone with basic training can monitor some high-tech innovations that are easy to carry and use. Such features allow people to carry these devices anywhere or use them at home to get immediate results. Introducing products such as Minicare I-20 by Philips as a simple and easy-to-use device for non-laboratory ‏staff is driving the adoption of products for tests within home settings. Self-testing at home supports timely clinic visits and improves outpatient care, driving segment growth.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 41.6% in 2022 due to major market participants in the U.S. contributing to substantial organic revenue growth in the global heart failure POC & LOC devices market. For instance, in December 2021, Quidel Corporation and Ortho Clinical Diagnostics Holdings plc signed a business combination agreement.
