In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Market Companies Research Report, By Product & Services (Reagents & Kits, Instruments, Data management software), By Applications (Infectious Diseases,Non-infectious diseases), By End User– Global Forecast Till 2023
In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are medical devices used for conducting medical testing of samples taken out of the human or animal body such as blood, urine and tissue. In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are used to detect infection, monitor drug concentration so as to diagnose and prevent diseases. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Companies Industry was valued at USD 69,200MN in2017. In its recently published analysis, MRFR also asserts that the market would register a double digit CAGR by the end of assessment period of 2023.
Extensive demand for IVD owing to growing demand, ease of use and growing healthcare diagnostic use is a key driving force behind the market.IVD comprises a large and important segment of the healthcare sector and is experiencing rapid spurts of growth owing to technological advancements, greater satisfaction owing to better detection and accuracy, growing demand for treatment monitoring, and explosive availability of over the counter IVD kits.
However, the restrictive legal framework in nations like Germany favouring the generic, IUD products and the shift to sensor-based products is constraining the market growth. The market is also experiencing price pressure owing to availability of cheap products from China and Vietnam. The growing stringency of regulations such as the In Vitro Diagnostics Directive (IVDD) 98/79/EC which mandates a CE Mark warranting quality and safety standards is also restraining the market.
New product development is the key strategy employed by companies so as to capitalise on the market demand. The centralized public procurement in many countries is reducing market competition and increasing uncertainty in the industry.
Players leading the global IVD market include Danaher Corporation, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Grifols S.A, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, Abbott Laboratories, Qiagen N.V., Sysmex Corporation, BioMérieux S.A, DiaSorin S.p.A, F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, Siemens AG, Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., Becton Dickinson and Company, among others.
