Global Point Of Care Diagnostics Market 2022: Significant Rise in Rates of Chronic Disease Fuels Growth


Dublin, Nov. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Point Of Care Diagnostics Market, By Product type, By End users, By Platform- Forecast and Analysis 2022-2028" report has been added to's offering.

Global Point of Care Diagnostics Market was valued at USD 46.65 billion in 2021 and it is expected to reach at USD 51.94 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period (2022-2028).

For investigation (diagnosis & monitoring) of a variety of diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, cardiac diseases, and others, point-of-care (POC) diagnostics are used. These are medical tools used to obtain an immediate response. The increase in the prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases in developing economies is one of the point of care diagnostics market growth factor. Globally, the prevalence of chronic diseases including diabetes, rheumatism, and cancer is rising for a number of reasons, including rising ageing population, sedentary lifestyles, poor dietary habits, and environmental factors.

For instance, chronic illnesses claim the lives of more than 38 million people worldwide each year. Every year, 17.5 million people die from chronic diseases related to the cardiovascular system, followed by cancer (8.2 million), respiratory diseases (4 million), and diabetes (1.5 million). 82% of deaths from chronic disorders are caused by the aforementioned diseases. Point-of-care diagnostics is becoming increasingly popular among patients all over the world since samples are taken from the patient's location for testing, and findings may be obtained in a remarkably short amount of time because to the usage of micro fluids, chips, and nano diagnostics.

Globally, there has been a significant increase in the occurrence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular problems, diabetes, and numerous infectious diseases. One of the primary factors driving demand for point-of-care diagnostics during the forecast period is the rising occurrence of such disorders.

According to the United Nations, about 38 million individuals have HIV/AIDS in 2019. There were 1.8 million youngsters and 36.2 million adults among them. Furthermore, human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is one of the most common viruses responsible for respiratory tract infections. According to the CDC, 4-5 million children worldwide suffer respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) lower respiratory tract infection each year. Similarly, according to the IDF Diabetes Atlas, 206.0 million adults worldwide had diabetes in 2021.


Due to a high number of pre- and post-analytical mistakes, point of care test findings are not properly aligned with central lab procedures. Unsuitable indications for the performance of the test, inappropriate sampling times and techniques, an insufficient information about patient conditions, and other variables such as fasting before functional tests or differences in posture/position during similar tests are examples of pre-analytical errors for point of care testing. Post-analytical errors, on the other hand, include insufficient technical validation, incorrect result assignment, and data storage issues


Major market participants have increased their focus on the use of new technologies such as artificial intelligence in the production of efficient point of care diagnostics. Significant breakthroughs in point of care testing devices have resulted from lab-on-a-chip platforms, wearable technologies, and smartphone-based technology innovations. Cloud-based Intelligent systems have cleared the way for future revolutions.
