Unprecedented Demand for OTC POC Products 

The market for OTC testing products is expanding as a result of factors including rising diabetes prevalence in developing nations where glucose monitors are available without a prescription, rising online sales of OTC testing products, rising patient preference for OTC products for pregnancy and stigmatized conditions like STDs and HIV/AIDS, physician shortages, low prices of OTC products, and rising self-monitoring awareness. One of the main factors driving the market is the rising prevalence of infectious diseases, where early identification is essential for improved disease outcomes. Diagnostics for allergies is another crucial field. The existing model of diagnosis may undergo a significant transformation if reliable and targeted diagnostics to identify the allergy's root cause becomes available. Because these conditions are stigmatised, patients prefer to self-test for STDs. Due to the rising demand for OTC products among these patients, the number of STD cases is predicted to rise globally. Therefore, the expansion of OTC diagnostics' accessibility and availability would contribute to the market's expansion.

How has COVID-19 had a Significant Positive Impact on the Point of Care Diagnostics Market?

Worldwide multilateral organizations and individual private donors pooled their funds to finance research for the quick diagnosis of coronavirus and its variants in response to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic's unexpected onset and escalating progression. The increased prevalence of COVID has increased the demand of POC tests. Thus companies have adopted strategies such as product launches, approvals and partnership to expand its product portfolio and geographic presence. In June 2022, Mylab Discovery Solutions and OR-based Hemex Health focused on creating diagnostics to transform frontline healthcare, launched Gazelle PathoCatch COVID-19 FIA test, their collaborative diagnostic solution for point-of-care (POC) testing in India. The diagnostic is currently under review with US FDA for Emergency Use Authorization and will launch in Africa and the Middle East later this summer. In May 2022, LumiraDx Limitedreceived EUL by WHO for its LumiraDx SARS-CoV-2 Ag Test. Sensing Self Pte. and LordsMed partnered in August 2022 to export AQUILAVIE SARS-CoV-2 Ag Diagnostic Test Kit to India.

What are the Current Market Drivers?

High Prevalence of Infectious Diseases to Fuel Market Growth Through 2033

POC tests have the potential to dramatically improve the management of infectious diseases, especially in developing countries where timely access to healthcare is challenging and when the infrastructure for delivering healthcare is outdated and constrained. According to information from the WHO Global Tuberculosis Report 2022, fewer people were newly diagnosed with tuberculosis during the epidemic. There were 5.8 million newly diagnosed cases worldwide in 2020 as opposed to 7.1 million in 2019. Globally, 6.4 million new cases were reported in 2021, suggesting that the number may have partially stabilized. The entire planet is now defenseless due to the Covid-19 pandemic. By the end of December 2022, the WHO had recorded more than 647 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, 6.64 million of which were fatal. Thus, it is projected that the increasing frequency of infectious diseases in both developed and developing countries will fuel the broad use of POC testing.

Growing Government Support to Boost Industry Growth

POC technology presents a fantastic opportunity for the expansion of public healthcare networks and solves patients' unmet medical needs, as governments in various countries have realized. In December 2022, the Biden Administration introduced fresh distribution strategies to offer clients cost-free at-home examinations. This includes expanding a program that offers free at-home tests to up to 500 major food banks so they can distribute them to people in their communities. Additionally, it entails delivering them to the more than 6,500 senior-focused rental housing institutions subsidized by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The CDC has released a COVID-19 Personal Action Plan, a user-friendly manual for patients, care-givers, and physicians, to help people create a plan for where to get free tests, where to find their nearest test to treat site, and what questions to ask their provider about treatments if they test positive.

Where are the Market Opportunities?

Healthcare Decentralization – Converting Lab Tests to POC Tests

When healthcare is decentralized, rights, power, and responsibility are transferred from a central health ministry to ministries at several levels, such as regional, provincial, and local. Decentralization attempts to boost public engagement and treatment effectiveness while also enhancing regional access to healthcare services. Decentralization also has other important advantages, such as better cost efficiency because local levels of government are more cost-aware and have better allocative efficiency. After all, local decision-makers have better access to local information.
