Chronic pancreatitis is a leading cause for EPI. According to the National Pancreases Foundation, every year around 10-12 people out of 100,000 are affected by chronic pancreatitis in industrialized countries.

With prevalence of chronic pancreatitis, the number of EPI cases is also increasing. Hence, to test or diagnose EPI in chronic pancreatitis, the demand for fecal pancreatic elastase testing industry is surging globally.

The demand in the market is also predicted to rise with rising number of diagnostic labs offering FE-1 testing. Traditionally, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency was measured using the fecal fat test.

The hospital laboratories and diagnostic laboratories have started using the determination of pancreatic elastase from the stool sample. In the last few years, there has been an increase in the number of diagnostic laboratories offering this test. Some of the diagnostic laboratories offering this test include Mayo Clinic Laboratories, Dr Lal PathLabs, and others.
