The growth of the overall point-of-care diagnostics market is driven by factors such as prevalence of lifestyle and infectious diseases and the increasing inclination towards home healthcare across the globe. In addition, healthcare decentralization, miniaturization of POC testing devices, increasing number of conferences and events, and POC tests with multiplexing capabilities are offering new growth opportunities for players in the point-of-care diagnostics market.
On the other hand, stringent and time-consuming regulatory policies and pricing pressure owing to reimbursement cuts and budget constraints are the key challenges faced by the market players involved in the POC diagnostics market.
Geographically, North America (comprising the U.S. and Canada) is expected to command the largest share of the point-of-care diagnostics market in 2016, followed by Europe. A number of factors such as growing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, increasing number of product approvals, and rising government initiatives are contributing to the growth of the North American point-of-care diagnostics market. However, rising pricing pressure and slow approval of multi-analyte POC products is limiting the growth of point-of-care diagnostics market in North America.
