Molecular testing can improve the specificity and sensitivity of existing near-patient and rapid diagnostic tests, thereby propelling the growth of the US POC diagnostic market.
The increasing application of this diagnostic testing across laboratory settings will boost the demand in the market. The growing requirement for the early and accurate diagnosis of a specific ailment that results in effective treatment will lead to the demand in the US POC diagnostic market. With POC testing immediate decision making in cases of sepsis or stroke, quick, and precise confirmation of clinical findings is becoming easier in the market. xPOCT is known as a simultaneous on-site measurement of different analytes from a single sample, and it is gaining immense popularity in the USPOC diagnostic market.
Point-of-Care Diagnostics Market in US - Segmentation
The US point-of-care diagnostics market by product is segmented into POC analyzers and consumables. Consumables segment dominated more than half of the total market share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of approximately 8% during the forecast period. The increasing use of various rapid tests across emergency care, physician offices, ambulatory settings, nursing homes, and by individuals for diagnosing various diseases is propelling the growth of this segment in the US market. The POC analyzers market is growing at a higher growth rate than clinical laboratory analyzers market as end-users are preferring analyzers which deliver immediate results with less turnaround time.
Diagnostic tests with POC analyzers have the capability to deliver results in hours and to make quick decision making for treating a disease. Therefore, increase in target population with various diseases is encouraging many end-users to procure compact and advanced POC analyzers for performing various diagnostic tests.
The application segment in the US point-of-care diagnostics market is classified into blood glucose testing, cardiovascular and metabolic testing, infectious disease testing, blood coagulation testing, hematology testing, cancer testing, drugs of abuse testing, and pregnancy and fertility/ovulation testing. Infectious disease testing is the fastest growing technology segment in the US market, at a CAGR of around 11% during the forecast period. The launch of POC diagnostics and rapid test kits providing accurate and quick diagnostics is propelling the growth of this segment in the US market. The growing prevalence of diabetes in the US and increasing demand for self-monitoring of blood glucose are the major factors contributing to this segment's growth. Around 10% of people have some form of diabetes in the country.
The US point-of-care diagnostics market by end-user is categorized into professional healthcare settings, home care, and others. The professional healthcare segment occupied more than half of the total market share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. The increasing use of point-of-care diagnostics technology for detecting of acute and chronic diseases is fueling the growth of this segment in the US market.
