The clinical laboratory services market is primarily driven by the rising incidences of chronic diseases and the increasing demand for accurate disease diagnosis, along with the government’s focus on public-private partnerships. However, the lack of medical laboratories, advanced diagnostic equipment, and inadequately trained laboratory staff are restraining the market’s growth. Most of the developing countries across the globe are facing a high prevalence of communicable diseases along with the rising prevalence of non-communicable diseases. As per the World Health Organization 2018, 41 million, or 71% of the global deaths were due to noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). People across the developing countries are becoming more selective about the health services they get. Due to the favorable reimbursement and developed healthcare systems of countries such as the United States, France, the UK, etc., there is a high demand for laboratory services which is propelling the growth of the market studied.
The progression of chronic diseases can be prevented through lifestyle changes. However, the early diagnosis of an underline disease is necessary for interventions to be effective. Thus, owing to the increasing burden of chronic diseases, the volumes of diagnostic tests are expected to increase rapidly, resulting in the expansion of the market.
Key Market Trends
Independent Laboratories to Register Healthy Growth
The demand for laboratory testing is increasing, due to the increasing incidences of chronic diseases, thereby increasing the demand for the accurate diagnosis of different diseases. In highly populated countries like India and China where a significant chunk of the population does not have access to proper medical diagnostic facilities, there is a huge opportunity for independent laboratories. In countries like Nigeria, the laboratory services are being integrated with the three-tier public health system at the primary, secondary, and tertiary levels. Besides these, there are reference laboratories, research laboratories, and disease-specific reference laboratories to provide services for complex and special tests.
The independent laboratories are coming up with highly advanced types of equipment and are providing multiple test types which is enabling patients to access the service as per their convenience. Hence, independent laboratories are expected to witness healthy growth.
United States Holds the Largest Share of the Market
