The emerging space of point of care instruments is significantly in advancing and achieving the objectives of the healthcare realm. Launch of mobile & self-testing devices has increased access to testing and monitoring systems to the remote places where the provision of timely medical care is a challenge.

The emerging market players other than established firms are engaged in the design of a significant number of novel and innovative algorithms and solutions thus fueling growth in the diagnostic sector. The presence of several products in the pipeline stage is expected to add to revenue in the coming years.

The decreasing capacity of central labs to meet the growing demand for healthcare is one of the major factors responsible for escalating the demand for decentralized testing. Such factors resultantly increase the demand for self-testing devices thereby leading to revenue generation.

Furthermore, rising adoption of companion diagnostics, the virulence of infectious diseases, and the need for better and regular monitoring systems in near-patient settings are expected to drive the point of care infectious disease diagnostics/testing market with potential avenues. As the trend and advancements in personalized medicine continue to rise, bringing molecular testing to the point of care in the patient’s home, doctor’s clinics and hospitals will continue to be in demand.

Disease Insights

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) POC tests accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016. Efforts taken up by various entities such as World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and major companies for contributing towards advancing and delivering sensitive and accurate devices are anticipated to enhance penetration of these devices in the coming years.

Demand for POC testing of influenza, TB and MDR-TB is expected to grow at a lucrative pace in the coming years as a consequence of rising incidence rates of these diseases. Moreover, the development of rapid RT-PCR tests for influenza that are better in the detection of the microorganisms than the conventional tests are anticipated to boost progress in this segment.

End-use Insights

Clinics accounted for the largest market share owing to the higher adoption of these devices and platforms in clinics. Moreover, increasing penetration of these devices in the clinics and associated facilities is attributive to the estimated share.

Assisted living healthcare facilities are anticipated to register the fastest growth in the coming years due to higher usage in this segment as a consequence of rising demand by the geriatric population base.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the point of care infectious disease testing market, particularly the U.S. holds the highest revenue share in the field of rapid and easy to use diagnostics, owing to factors such as the presence of substantial players, well-established healthcare framework. Moreover, the introduction of technological advances in this region supports the estimated revenue share.

However, Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing region due to increment in R&D expenditure in patient-centric facilities in Japan and China. Furthermore, the dramatically increasing burden of chronic infectious diseases coupled with the presence of government initiatives aimed to promote early diagnosis are factors expected to fuel regional progress.

Companies in Asia are focusing on the development of novel assays, for instance, in May 2017, One BioMed and A*Star’s Genome Institute of Singapore established a joint lab venture for molecular diagnostic assay production. This collaboration is intended for the development of assays for the Asian clinical infectious disease testing market. These assays include tests for pediatric respiratory infections, mosquito-borne illnesses, and drug-resistant tuberculosis.
