The EMEA PoC diagnostics market is expected to reach USD 7.39 billion by 2022, according to a new report by Grand View Research Inc.
Incorporation of healthcare IT and telecommunication such as HealthVault concept by Microsoft plays an inevitable role in the development of the Point-of-Care (PoC) diagnostics market. The introduction of healthcare information systems such as Electronic Medical Records (EMR) has highly increased the market penetration rates of these diagnostic tests.
Rising demand for home healthcare coupled with patient awareness levels and government initiatives aimed at reducing hospital stays and healthcare expenditure are anticipated to drive the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) PoC diagnostics market growth. On account of growing demand for self-testing, companies have launched portable devices that are easy to use such as Pandora CDx point-of-care system by POC Medical Systems.
Growing base of the geriatric population will widen the target consumer base. Aging heightens the risk of chronic diseases including cardiovascular, diabetes, and cancer. Growing base of geriatric population is anticipated to further increase the demand for continuous monitoring via facilities requiring point-of-care diagnostic products such as home healthcare and assisted living facilities.
