Industry Dynamics

Industry Trends

There is notable technological development in the field of point-of-care diagnostics, with market players focusing more on using AI to produce effective point-of-care diagnostics. Newer, better, and miniature diagnostics systems are created with advanced chip technology, biosensors, and microfluidics. Also, the implementation of cloud-based intelligent systems is expected to revolutionize the future market. The novel lab-on-a-chip technology allows better infectious disease detection, allowing the employing of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and microbiological culture in point-of-care diagnosis.

Growth Drivers

The primary factor that influences the growth of the global point-of-care rapid diagnostic market is the growing government support to promote this practice. In addition, rapid technological advancements are also promoting market growth. Market players are also coming up with innovative products that boost specific POC diagnostics, such as in-home care settings. The growing regulatory sanctions, healthcare decentralization, events, conferences, and POC tests with several competencies are also facilitating market growth.


The market growth is hindered due to several reasons such as longer product development and launch periods, inadequate reimbursements, and strict and time-consuming regulatory policies. In addition, other factors such as lack of alignment with central lab systems and inadequate know-how of POC device handling are imposing significant challenges to the market growth.


However, significant growth opportunities are offered due to the rapid technological developments in this field that promote the production of advanced systems. The continual effort by the market players to produce next-gen point-of-care devices encourages higher adoption, and thereby the growth of the market.

Geographic Overview

North America holds the largest share due to the higher occurrence of lifestyle-related diseases, growing government schemes, and a rise in the number of product approvals.

The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow due to the large population base, growing occurrence of lifestyle-related and infectious diseases, and higher government initiatives.
