Global Market for Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostic Tests 2021-2025: Sales of POC Testing Reached $29,316 Million Driven by COVID-19

Dublin, April 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- "The Worldwide Market for Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostic Tests, 8th Edition" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

By the middle of the decade, point of care testing is expected to reach 45 billion dollars annually. This should not be surprising. Globally, millions of dollars are spent annually on POC diagnostic testing, both professional testing and self-testing. In 2020, sales of POC testing reached $29,316 million. COVID-19 was a significant game changer in 2020. The number of new tests for POC COVID-19 was stunning.

In some segments, COVID-19 caused a contraction of the segment due to lockdown, closures, limited physician visits and a reduction in elective and outpatient surgery. The market is expected to resume pre-pandemic growth in all segments of the POC market. Certain segments will continue to advance significantly from 2021-2025.

In 2025, the total global POC diagnostic testing market is expected to reach almost $45 billion, displaying growth of 8.9% over the forecast period 2020-2025.

  • Regional Market Analysis

POC test devices have contributed significantly to the growth of the overall diagnostics market over the past 10 years. More diagnostic manufacturers have pursued CLIA waiver status for their POC devices and CE Mark for POC or self-use. At the same time more, decentralized test venues invest in non-waived rapid tests and instruments. POC testing appears to be headed for an even bigger role in diagnosis and monitoring patient care. New technologies are allowing POC devices to produce quantitative lab-quality test results that can be transferred automatically to an information system, a remote caregiver service for consultation or an electronic medical record.

It's not all upside - test cost will continue to weigh more heavily upon the trajectory of POC testing in many markets. In Europe, fee schedules have significantly dampened or led to the contraction of national POC markets; Switzerland is an exception through its preserved (though repeatedly contested) premiums paid to POC tests over scheduled base fees. In the United States, future changes to Medicare's CLFS will place significant pressure on some POC tests performed in large volumes on automated systems in centralized and commercial labs. These challenges and expected forecasts given their presence are discussed in the report.
