Hospital-based Point of Care Diagnostics: Products, Players and Outlook to 2017

October 29, 2013

Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report: Hospital-based Point of Care Diagnostics: Products, Players and Outlook to 2017.

London (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

The market for POC diagnostic products used in a hospital setting was worth approximately US$2.9 billion in 2011 with sectors such as cardiac markers making double digit growth in the year. There is growing interest in the adoption of POC technologies, strong demand in emerging markets, and new products that enable POC testing for more applications are being introduced.

The benefits are clear. Hospital-based POC diagnostics offer healthcare providers an opportunity to improve the quality of patient care while saving time and reducing costs. A faster diagnosis can mean a faster medical intervention, potentially avoiding the need to admit a patient into hospital and the costs incurred as a result, while also freeing up that hospital bed.

It’s not all plain sailing. Concerns have been raised by laboratory professionals that the use of POC products by less skilled users may result in inaccurate diagnoses. This has strengthened resistance to the changes needed for POC products to be widely adopted. The counter argument is not helped by the lack of a wide clinical evidence base which proves POC diagnostics deliver lab-quality results and benefit from being convenient and cost-effective.

There are around 80 companies active in the hospital POC diagnostics market, although many are development-stage or have limited product portfolios. The market is currently dominated by Alere, Abbott, Radiometer, Roche and Siemens. Currently, Abbott, Radiometer, Roche and Siemens have strong positions in the markets for clinical chemistry and blood gas analysis; Abbott, Alere and Roche are leaders for POC cardiac marker testing; and Beckman Coulter, Quest Diagnostics, Horiba and Sysmex are key companies in POC haematology diagnostics.
