Growth in this market can be attributed to a number of factors such as high prevalence of infectious diseases in women, rising incidence of chronic and lifestyle-related disorders and increasing awareness about fertility testing in women and initiatives taken by government and health organizations.
Moreover, the increasing adoption of point-of-care diagnostic testing and the increasing number of diagnostic and imaging centers are also expected to play a major role in market growth. However, high cost of diagnostic solutions and lack of trained laboratory technicians are some of the factors restraining the growth of this market.
