HbA1c Testing Market Overview

The HbA1c Testing Market is projected to reach USD 3.24 billion by 2030 at 13.1% CAGR during the forecast period 2024-2030. Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is a form of hemoglobin that is bound to glucose. The HbA1c test provides the patient with the average level of blood sugar only for the past 2 to 3 months.

HbA1c Testing Market

HbA1c is a modified form of hemoglobin that is present in red blood cells. Most of the hemoglobin is in HbA form and during their lifespan, only a small fraction transforms into HbA1. HbA1 is further separated into HbA1a, HbA1b, and HbA1c. A high level of HbA1c is present in the body of diabetes patients as its formation occurs only during a process called glycosylation that converts glucose into glycogen for storage purposes. This HbA1c test results in the blood sugar level of the past 2 to 3 months of the diabetes patient’s body.

Worldwide, diabetes is one of the most prevalent epidemics and there are three types of diabetes. Out of them, type 2 diabetes is the common type. In September 2016, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) research, diabetes is expected to be the seventh leading cause of death by the year 2030.  In 2017, according to the report of the International Diabetes Federation, there are 12,465,800 diabetes cases are reported globally and the prevalence of diabetes in Brazil was 8.7% among adults. Due to these increasing occurrences, various testing methods like HbA1c testing equipment are diagnosed to the patients. This is the major driving factor of the HbA1c testing market growth.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic affects millions of people and brought the world to a standstill. Diabetic people and the market of HbA1c testing are also impacted by this pandemic. This testing volume was decreased by 66% in March and April 2020. Due to the pandemic, the stay at home orders and social distancing regulations are imposed and thus results in decrement of HbA1c testing volumes convert to postponed testing’s and decline in HbA1c testing frequency. Moreover, in this way or any other reasons, the missing of HbA1c point of care testing leads to adverse impacts of glucose control, clinical outcomes, and diabetes-related medical prices. In this way, the HbA1c testing procedures are impacted by COVID-19 and decline its market growth. Further, post-COVID, the market of HbA1c testing is rapidly increased due to its increased usage.

HbA1c Testing Market Dynamics


Rising per capita disposable income and developing healthcare infrastructure is the major driving factor for the growth of the market. Introducing advanced innovations in treatment options is propelling the growth of the market. Due to poor dietary choices, lack of physical activities, and higher stress levels, the people affected with diabetes are increasing day by day and the physicians are prescribing the HbA1c test fasting to their patients which increases the market growth of the HbA1c testing.

Additionally, the emergence of point of care and other latest innovations that reducing diabetes testing costs is aiding the HbA1c testing market growth. The continuous rise in the geriatric population leads to rising in diabetes patients all over the world. The rising scope of medical tourism in developing countries is boosting the HbA1c testing equipment market.


The testing devices are expensive. In few developing countries, these technologies are less adopted and are limiting the growth of the hemoglobin A1c testing devices market. 


Rising adoption of advanced diagnostic tools and devices along with strategic activities like partnerships, and agreements among the prominent key players may create the opportunity to increase the market growth. The emergence of the latest testing procedures and advanced technologies like handheld devices is predicted to provide a lucrative opportunity for the market growth of HbA1c testing. The rising awareness among the people regarding the management of diabetes efficiently is offering the growth of the market.


Manufacturing of these testing devices is cost high which poses a challenge for the market growth. Due to the discrepancies in interpretations, the HbA1c standard range testing result may be inaccurate which is hindering the HbA1c assay market growth.
