Global POC diagnostic products market to reach value of $6.1 billion by 2017

The global POC diagnostic products market, specifically those used in a physicians surgery, is expected to reached a value of $6.1 billion by 2017, up from $1.7 billion in 2011. Key growth sectors in this market include cholesterol testing and tumour markers. It is expected that over the next five years all sectors in this industry will see high growth.

In the physicians office, POC diagnostics can play a key role in the diagnosis and ongoing monitoring of acute and chronic illnesses, the detection of some types of cancer, the monitoring of patients on anticoagulation drugs, and for general blood and urine testing. It can also play an important role in enabling preventative medicine, which is intended to help curb the increasing incidence of chronic conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease through early detection and identifying patients with risk factors that mean they are likely to develop such conditions in the future.

The benefits for clinicians, patients and health payers are clear. Physician-based testing provides rapid POC diagnosis and faster medical intervention. Healthcare providers are looking for new ways of improving patient outcomes, which in turn reduces the need for more expensive patient care, medications and hospital stays, as well as reducing costs and managing a larger number of patients without increasing staffing levels or numbers of hospital beds.

Challenges remain...

There are several key challenges in the market. Currently, many physicians offices do not have budgets for in-house diagnostic testing and healthcare funding needs to change in order to provide incentives for doctors to use the products. For this to happen, healthcare providers need evidence that POC diagnostics provide benefits in terms of clinical-usefulness, convenience and cost in order to adopt them. In addition, concerns have also been raised about the accuracy of some POC tests used to diagnose conditions such as influenza. For infectious disease testing, the ongoing development of POC PCR and DNA-based systems is expected to improve on currently-available products. These devices could represent a significant market opportunity for manufacturers, should they be able to reduce the testing time and price point of the products to something suitable for and attractive to physicians.
