Clinical Laboratory Test Market Trends



  • Growing prevalence of target diseases to drive market growth


Over the forecast period, the market is expected to benefit from the rising prevalence of target diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Cardiovascular disorders are the biggest cause of death around the world. Unmet medical needs related to cardiovascular illnesses and increased patient awareness are projected to drive demand for point-of-care lipid testing. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular illnesses will be the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in 2021. 17.7 million people have died from cardiovascular diseases in the last three decades, accounting for 31% of fatalities ly.


The rising prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases such as obesity, the trend of smoking, and an unhealthy diet are among the causes contributing to the worldwide increase in the incidence of renal and lipid-related disorders. Furthermore, as the prevalence of diabetes rises, the patient pool requiring clinical laboratory tests expands. Sedentary behavior contributes to the prevalence of several metabolic illnesses. Hormone imbalances resulting from lifestyle changes are becoming more of a problem. Sexual and thyroid hormone imbalances are among these issues. According to the BMC Journal, in 2020, hypothyroidism affected 5.3% of Europeans, whereas hyperthyroidism affected 1.3%. his increase in target diseases is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. The increased number of tests performed in clinical laboratories can also be linked to rising awareness of certain illnesses. Furthermore, the industry is fueled by simple access to workplace testing and insurance-based examinations.


Clinical Laboratory Test Market Segment Insights

Clinical Laboratory Test Types of Laboratories Insights


Clinical Laboratory Test Types of Test Insights


The clinical laboratory test market segmentation, based on types of tests, includes complete blood count (CBC), basic metabolic panel (BMP), HbA1c Tests, HGB/HCT tests, comprehensive metabolic panel tests, BUN creatinine tests, renal panel tests, electrolytes testing, and liver panel tests & lipid panel tests. The basic metabolic panel (BMP) segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2032. The dominance of the segment is attributed to the presence of numerous clinical chemistry tests involved in the pathology analysis of body fluids, including analysis of urine, plasma, serum, and other body fluids. Basic clinical chemistry tests form an integral part of basic-level diagnosis and laboratory testing. In addition, rising prevalence of lifestyle-induced diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity, and growing awareness about advanced clinical laboratory tests are key factors bolstering growth of the basic metabolic tests segment.


Clinical Laboratory Test Application Insights


The clinical laboratory test market data has been bifurcated by application into parasitology virology, hematology, toxicology, immunology/serology, and histopathology and urinalysis. The virology segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2032. The growth of the segment is attributed to the growing importance of point of care tests and launch of new and advanced technologies. In addition, the adoption of clinical chemistry tests in countries such as India, the U.S., and Japan is creating growth prospects for the segment.


Clinical Laboratory Test Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North American clinical laboratory test market is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR during the study period, accounting for USD 97.11 billion in 2021. The market is expected to be fueled by growing regulatory backing and increased investments in clinical laboratory tests. North America has sophisticated economies and a strict regulatory structure for new test approval. The FDA has approved these tests under the 510(k) medical device regulation. Panel tests performed on instruments must also go through a similar FDA clearance process to be approved for commercialization. Health Canada oversees the approval of these tests in Canada. Routine examinations are being encouraged by high insurance coverage (almost 100%) and favorable regulatory measures, growing the market. These tests are immediately billed to insurance companies, making it easier for patients to estimate costs. Urinalysis, blood tests, and screening tests are all covered by Medicaid. The cost of tests is low; nevertheless, hospital fees in the area are more.
