The low-volume sample analysis, automation, high-throughput analysis, rapid analysis times, small footprint, low cost, portability, and disposability are key trends in the IVD market.


Advances in Molecular Diagnostics Transforming the Future of Healthcare

The healthcare industry witnessed high development and growth in invitro diagnostics over the past decade. Advances in molecular diagnostics are dramatically improving medical treatment outcomes in current times. Due to drug failure in clinical trials and regulatory barriers, bio-pharmaceutical companies are turning toward new medical solutions at the molecular level and molecular diagnostics. In addition, next-generation sequencing and clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPER) technology significantly improve molecular diagnostics for oncology and infectious diseases care. Such factors are expected to lead the in vitro diagnostics market in the future.

Increasing Product Launches & Mergers & Acquisitions in IVD

IVD diagnostics is among the biggest industries to witness several product launches in recent years. The increasing demand for new diagnostics tests forces us to develop new solutions. Currently, the IVD players are operating in a world that designs, develops, manufactures, and sells best-in-class solutions. COVID-19 is one of the best periods where several companies have come forward to develop rapid test kits to detect coronavirus.

In the first half of 2021, IVD companies reported high revenues due to COVID-19 testing. However, in the year's second half, many companies experienced low demand for COVID-19 testing, resulting in decreased COVID-19 product revenue. In the same period, to increase the production and expansion of distribution networks, IVD companies adopted M&A strategies. To prepare for COVID-19, some major and emerging IVD companies have turned to M&As to increase their diagnostic testing portfolio. These acquisitions witnessed the in vitro diagnostics market expansion and portfolio expansion.

A large patient population with chronic and infectious diseases drives the demand for IVD solutions and fuels market growth.

Chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and others are public health concerns worldwide, resulting in high demand for diagnostic services. In addition, infectious diseases, such as HIV, COVID-19, influenza, staphylococcus, respiratory syncytial virus, and others, pose significant demand for diagnostic services and fuel market growth.

The adoption of advanced technologies in IVD drives significant IVD testing worldwide without experiencing the burden of time and cost. Moreover, they have increased the efficiency of diagnostics and delivered the most accurate results that accelerate market growth. Advances, such as a new generation of IVD products with AI and the digital platform, provide newer dimensions in the global in vitro diagnostics market.



The reagent and consumables are the largest segments, accounting for 66.47% of the global in vitro diagnostics market in 2022. Reagents and consumables are used in IVD procedures as a medium and transporter of specimens of patients with medical conditions for diagnosis, treatments, and monitoring. The reoccurring use of reagents and consumables is driving the market growth. Innovation in consumables, especially reagents, is low compared to analyzers. Some companies do come up with new types of reagents for unique products. For instance, Sysmex, a Japanese company, developed a concentrated reagent for hematology analyzers. These concentrated reagents are gaining traction in the market, especially in developed countries. This is helping the company to gain market share. End-users are shifting toward concentrated reagents, which have more benefits than conventional reagents.
