The global Point-Of-Care Diagnostic Market is categorized into several segments such as infectious diseases testing kits, glucose monitoring kits, coagulation monitoring kits, urinalysis testing kits, hematology testing kits, cholesterol test strips, drugs of abuse testing kits, cardiac markers, blood gas/electrolytes testing kits, tumor/cancer markers, pregnancy and fertility testing kits, fecal occult testing kits, food pathogens testing kits, and others. In addition, based on the type of end users, the global POC diagnostics market has been segmented into patient professional monitoring kits and patient self-monitoring kits. Furthermore, based on the prescription mode, the global POC diagnostics market has been segmented into OTC and prescription-based POC diagnostics market.
A number of factors such as increasing prevalence of infectious diseases in developing countries, rising incidences of lifestyle diseases such as cardiac diseases and diabetes, decreasing number of technicians in central labs, and technological advancements are stimulating the demand for POC testing. Evolution of new POC testing procedures and emerging markets such as China and India represent high growth opportunities for market players.
As of 2013, North America (comprising the U.S., Canada, and Mexico) held the largest share of the global POC diagnostics market. This large share is primarily attributed to the huge and increasing addressable patient population base. Moreover, the development of accurate and rapid testing kits is further fueling the growth of the POC diagnostics market in North America. However, the Asia-Pacific POC diagnostics market is expected to witness the highest growth in the forecast period. A number of factors such as increasing funding/investment toward the development of POC products, growing focus of both international and domestic players on the Asia-Pacific POC diagnostics market, and large number of R&D activities are propelling the demand for POC testing products in the Asia-Pacific region.
