IVD Market Reaches $69.2 Billion: Kalorama Information Report

ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The world market for diagnostics is estimated at $69.2 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow a little more than 4% annually to reach $85.2 billion by 2024. This is according to a new report by market researcher Kalorama Information, part of Science and Medicine Group. This includes all laboratory and hospital-based in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests, instruments, and reagents, as well as over-the-counter (OTC) product sales.

Kalorama Information released its 12th edition of the 2,000-page "Worldwide Market for In Vitro Diagnostic Tests" report, available now:

Some of the key the findings of the report include the following:

  • The demand for early detection of cancer and infectious diseases is driving the IVD market globally.
  • The market is also boosted by the aging world population and the stream of new test innovations – this is a field where double-digit percentages of sales invested back in R&D is not uncommon.
  • Sales to China, Korea, Brazil, and other emerging nations are driving markets, but there is also some recovery in European markets and in Japan.
  • Mass spectrometry has arrived, the report said, and it is included in market totals for its superior microorganism identification capability, among other applications.
  • Roche dominates the market, but Abbott Diagnostics has gained ground recently. Siemens Healthcare, Danaher, Thermo Fisher Scientific, bioMérieux, and Ortho Clinical Diagnostics are among the top-tier competitors.
  • Hundreds of companies compete in the market, and investment is brisk.

The report covers every aspect of in vitro diagnostic testing from point-of-care tests to molecular genetic testing to tissue-based tests. Companies are profiled, trends tracked, and their impact discussed.  Kalorama now publishes the comprehensive report yearly, and the firm is consulted by top diagnostic companies for business planning.
