According to statistics published by the International Diabetes Federation, the global prevalence of diabetes will increase from 382 million in 2013 to 592 million in 2035.

The growing prevalence of diabetes and the introduction of portable diagnostic equipment are expected to boost the segment growth from 2022 to 2030. For instance, in March 2022, research on the assessment of glucose levels in hospitalized patients with community-acquired pneumonia required recording everyday glucose data from February to June 2021. The researchers employed POC capillary blood glucose testing for monitoring the glucose in patients.

The cancer markers segment is expected to witness significant growth of 9.6% during the forecast period. Annually, millions of patients report to the emergency room with symptoms of a heart attack. Approximately, 31% of all deaths are due to cardiovascular disease. Players are assessing the upcoming demand and initiating product development strategies accordingly. For instance, in April 2021, Siemens Healthineers obtained CE marking for Atellica VTLi Patient-Side Immunoassay Analyzer. It is one of the first technologies in the industry that aims to enhance the patient care paradigm and offers hs-cTnI results that assist in the diagnosis and treatment of heart attacks.

High accuracy rates associated with these markers and the growing prevalence of target diseases are some primary drivers of this segment. Moreover, the segment is expected to witness a rapid rise in the penetration rates in the developed markets of North America and Europe. The growing geriatric population and the prevalence of disease-inducing lifestyle habits in these countries are expected to fuel market growth over the forecast years.

End-use Insights

The clinics segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 37.91% in 2022. Pharmacy and retail clinics are the major contributors to the revenue generated by this segment. Growing access to novel diagnostic technologies, improving healthcare coverage, and affordability are the key factors that are expanding the applications of POC diagnostics.

Thus, community pharmacies and retail clinics have emerged as potential medical setups that perform such lab tests, especially regarding cholesterol and glycosylated hemoglobin (A1C) testing. Improved healthcare accessibility for the older population, increased prevalence of communicable diseases, and growing strain on traditional clinics are key factors contributing to global market growth.

Global point of care diagnostics market share, by end-use, 2021 (%)

As the adoption of POCT increases in hospitals, regulatory bodies have toughened the validation/verification setting for POC devices. For instance, in January 2022, an article published in Clinical Laboratory News stated that the employment of hospital POC glucose meters needs to be verified and validated by the institutions. For on-label POCT devices, a formal validation is not required, however, needs to verify the precision, accuracy, and analytical measurement range, among other core parameters defined under CLIA.

The home end-use segment is expected to register the fastest growth rate of 7.2% from 2023 to 2030. Home care is a lucrative segment owing to the cost-effectiveness and comfort level of POCT provided to patients at home. POC in the home healthcare sector also empowers patients to address healthcare challenges at home and take decisions instantly. As the emphasis of healthcare is shifting toward early detection and prevention of diseases, the POC diagnostics-based home healthcare market is expected to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period.
