North America Retains Dominant Position in Global Market due to Automation in Diagnostics

On the basis of product, this market is segmented into lateral flow assay test, flow-through test, solid phase assay test, and agglutination assay test. Of these, the lateral slow assay test is expected to stand out amongst the others as the segment is estimated to acquire a share of 38.3% in the global market by 2024. The demand for these test will continue to remain high due to their decentralized availability. These tests are also likely to replace laboratory-based immunoassays in decentralized POC testing locations. The lateral flow tests include a sample pad, detection conjugate, reagent pad, test and control reagent lines, nitro-cellulose membrane, and absorbent pad and plastic-adhesive backing card. The demand for these tests will also be backed by booming geriatric population, the high prevalence of chronic disorders, and a rising demand for home-based testing.

In terms of geography, the global market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Out of these, North America is poised to account for a share of 38.0% in the global market by the end of 2024. The regional market will be driven by the booming demand for automated diagnostics, strategic collaborations and mergers and acquisitions, and some remarkable technological innovations. Furthermore, design and development of point-of-care diagnostic testing kits to simplify patient demands are also expected to spell a positive spell for the North America point-of-care diagnostics market. Analysts anticipate that Asia Pacific will also be an emerging region in the global market due to a huge population base that has a plethora of unmet medical needs.

Inability of Multiple Screening Impedes Market Growth

Several diseases or infections show similar symptoms, which demands accurate testing by screening the patient for multiple diseases. The inability of point-of-care testing to screen for multiple purposes is its biggest drawback. Thus, patients are still opting for laboratory testing to ensure they get accurate results for serious infections. Additionally, the inability to interpret the diagnostic tests is also dissuading many from using homecare kits. Currently, rapid medical diagnostics kits only offer qualitative results without providing any quantification of data. This results in inaccuracy of interpretation and can hamper the treatment. Despite the prolific amount of research and development and marketing of point-of-care testing, these kits provide approximation and can lead to a misdiagnosis. All of these factors are collectively hampering the growth of the global market to a large extent.
