Global In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) market set to boom in the next seven years driven by ageing population

The global IVD market is forecast to grow to $49,843.5m by 2016 at the rate of 4.3% over the next seven years. Clinical chemistry and the immuno chemistry markets will be the largest IVD categories, accounting for more than 60% of the total revenues. These markets are expected to grow at 4.5% and 4.7% CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) between 2009 and 2016 to reach $16,425.3m and $14,136.1m respectively.

The genetic testing market will be the fastest growing market at a CAGR of 6.7% during 20092016 to become an over the billion dollar market. The global IVD market will be driven by new technological advancements, a shift towards more complex immunochemistry tests to Point of Care (POC), and the adoption of cost cutting measures such as increased automation and self testing. Major technological advancements such as next generation DNA sequencing, molecular imaging, and microfluidics-based diagnostic devices are expected to drive growth in categories such as immunochemistry and genetic testing.

Need to control costs at laboratories to drive adoption of new processes and instruments

Cost reduction has become the primary theme of healthcare reforms globally. To survive and succeed in these challenging conditions, it is imperative for laboratories to look for ways to adapt and implement new strategies to help them save on costs. In todays competitive environment, revenues per test are continually falling, requiring testing centers to increase their productivity for survival. The paradigm shift towards improved quality, error free services, and the need to ensure patient satisfaction to retain their allegiance has prompted laboratories to adopt novel technologies such as automation, and point of care in order to reduce their expenses. The acceptance of new technologies is expected to drastically improve among those who are currently reluctant to invest to achieve long term cost reduction goals.
