Point of Care Technology Market Dynamics

The high prevalence of respiratory illnesses like influenza, COVID diseases, cardiac diseases, and infectious diseases, as well as growing online accessibility of point-of-care diagnostics products, supportive governmental policies, and an increase in CLIA-waived POC tests, are all contributing factors to the growth of the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, the growing healthcare decentralization and higher financing and expenditures in product development are anticipated to fuel market growth in the coming years. However, factors like pricing pressure brought on by reductions in reimbursement and budgetary restrictions are anticipated to impede the expansion of the point-of-care technology market during the projected period.

Market Drivers

  • Growing prevalence of chronic diseases

Chronic illnesses and acute infections are on the rise in developing nations, owing to, among other things, a lack of health knowledge, inadequate medical infrastructure, and a sedentary lifestyle. As a result of these factors, diagnosis and treatment are delayed, as is the quality of care. The need for point-of-care tests for quick diagnosis is increasing because of their ease of use, low cost, and compact product size.

  • Advantages related to OTC-based tests

Due to the rise of OTC testing, such as pregnancy tests and blood glucose tests that provide answers in just a few seconds, the point-of-care testing market for OTC tests will grow. Anyone may carry out these tests without the need for the assistance of a qualified professional advancing the field. For instance, the First Response kit is a rapid pregnancy test that offers a result in 60 seconds. Customers receive results from Accu-Chek active blood glucose meter kits in under 5 seconds, which increases market demand.

Market Restraints:

  • Pricing pressure and budget constraints

The pricing pressure due to reimbursement cuts and lack of sufficient budgets has impacted the growth of the market. Additionally, it is said that spending on general-use medical equipment is stagnating due to the decline in the number of healthcare goods eligible for reimbursement, making it difficult for manufacturers to maintain pricing as the competition heats up. In the next years, it is anticipated that this aspect will present a significant barrier to expanding the  market.

Market Opportunities:

  • Proof-of-concept experiments with multiplexing capabilities

Companies are working to build POC devices that can run numerous analytes on a single device. Multiplexing refers to the ability of these devices to test many analytes on the same cartridge simultaneously. Multiplex POC testing provides various advantages over commonly accepted singleplex tests, including enhanced efficiency at lower costs, larger output per sample, and higher throughput. These benefits will aid in the development of more precise and thorough diagnoses, as well as the advancement of tailored medication.
