Application – Segment Analysis
Infectious Disease holds the major share in the application segment of In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Tests Market in 2019. Diagnosis of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is established through In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Tests. For infectious diseases, IVD tests help in detecting and identifying the infectious agents responsible for the disease, as well as in helping the healthcare professionals to find out the appropriate way of treating the disease. There are three types of IVD tests for infectious diseases, traditional microbiology, immunoassays, and molecular tests. Out of all these, molecular IVD tests has better advantages, like high sensitivity, high specificity, and rapid results. This drives the growth of the segment. Oncology segment held the second largest share in the year 2019, owing to growing incidence of cancer among the population of many regions. The number of new cases of cancer was 440 per 100,000 men and women per year in 2015. Cancer mortality is higher among men than women. Infectious disease segment is forecast to grow at the fastest rate with the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025, owing to further increase in prevalence of infectious diseases and growing preventive healthcare awareness among people.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America dominates the geography segment of In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Tests Market with a share of more than 42.7% in 2019, followed by Europe. Growing prevalence of the chronic diseases in the region, presence of a developed diagnostic infrastructure have fuelled the market growth in this region. Presence of key market players like Thermo Fischer Scientific Inc. and Abott Laboratories in the U.S. and technological advancements in the field of in vitro diagnostics have further helped in the growth of In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) test infrastructure. Europe held the second largest share in 2019, owing to demand for better technology for in vitro diagnostics, robust healthcare infrastructure and large investments of government in healthcare development.
