Industry Insights

The global transplant diagnostics market size was valued at USD 500.1 million in 2016 and is likely to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period. Increasing organ transplants is a major factor driving demand for diagnostics used before the procedure.

Demand for transplants has always been higher than supply of organs. However, extensive research and analysis in the field to bridge this gap is likely to benefit the market.

U.S. transplant diagnostics market

Initiatives by the European Commission for organ harvesting have resulted in availability of donated organs. Availability of the European donor card and increasing awareness among people have also augmented organ donation rate in the region. Similarly, U.S. has experienced considerable growth in organ donations due to rising awareness.

In addition, increasing number of patients suffering from chronic diseases frequently leading to organ failure is creating an upsurge in demand for transplant procedures. Moreover, adoption of stem cell therapy and personalized medicine is escalating. As a result, demand for pre-procedure diagnostics is growing swiftly. Risks and complexities associated with organ transplants necessitate the need for improved and sophisticated diagnostic tools.

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology is rapidly replacing traditional diagnostic methods, such as serological techniques employed in Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) typing, owing to demand for high-throughput diagnostic tools with enhanced accuracy.

Technology Insights

These pre-transplantation analysis techniques are employed to ensure safe and effective procedures. Factors such as growing awareness among physicians and rapid adoption of technologically advanced tools are expected to drive growth in future.

Molecular assays are preferred by physicians as compared to non-molecular assays. In addition, there has been a gradual shift in preference from serological assays to HLA typing owing to its benefits such as accuracy, efficacy, and lower risk. Currently, PCR-based assay segment holds the largest market share owing to multiple applications.

Sequencing-based assay segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. The market growth may have a negative impact due to factors such as strict regulatory protocols, slower approval processes, poor reimbursement policies for organ transplant, and social and ethical controversies in different parts of the world.

Products Insights

Based on product, the transplant diagnostics market is segmented into reagents and consumables, instruments, and services and software.Manufacturers these type of diagnostic products are adopting strategies such as purchase contracts for reagents and consumables. In addition, the key factor accelerating adoption of reagents and consumables is their repeat purchase. As a result, the segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016 and is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period.

Global transplant diagnostics market

The services and software segment is expected to follow reagents and consumables in terms of growth. Growth of this segment can be attributed to rise in introduction of sophisticated instruments leading to increased demand for training sessions to educate technical staff regarding handling and usage. In addition, factors such as frequent software updates and improved services offered by market players to remain competent are driving the segment growth. 

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016. Major drivers include high adoption of advanced techniques and diagnostic tools, higher healthcare expenditure, and availability of skilled professionals. U.S. holds the largest market share owing to factors such as highly developed healthcare infrastructure and availability of skilled professionals. Moreover, high adoption of personalized medicines, stem cell therapies, and soft tissue transplants are augmenting the regional market growth.

On the contrary, regulations such as the Organ Transplantation Act that imposes restrictions on reimbursement policies for organ donors is negatively affecting the market. The existing demand and supply gap in organ donation and the availability of alternatives for heart and liver transplants is restraining the market growth.

Transplant Diagnostics Market Share Insights

The global market is highly competitive with very few players competing with each other in the international market. The quality and accuracy constraints of transplant diagnostic techniques like serology-based and PCR-based HLA typing increase overall cost of products. As a result, players are implementing strategies, such as long-term contracts with diagnostic clinics and laboratories and discount pricing for bulk purchases.

Major market players include Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.; Illumina, Inc.; F. Hoffmann La-Roche AG.; Abbott Laboratories, Inc.; Qiagen N.V.; Immucor Transplant Diagnostics, Inc.; Bio-rad Laboratories, Inc.; Affymetrix, Inc.; and Omixon Ltd.
