Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Ferritin Testing Market size is expected to cross USD 2 Billion by the end of 2035, witnessing around 9% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of ferritin testing was around USD 550 Million. The growth of the market is driven by the increasing burden of illness caused by iron deficiency among children, women. Around 42% of children under the age of five and 40% of pregnant women are anemic all across the globe, recorded as per a report by World Health Organization. 

Furthermore, Anemia is also caused by hemoglobinopathies and viral disorders including malaria, TB, and parasitic infections. For instance, approximately 3.5 billion individuals globally are infected by intestinal parasite diseases, and more than 200,000 fatalities are recorded every year on the base of parasitic infections.

Ferritin Testing Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Less Awareness of Iron Deficiency Across the Globe - Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies worldwide, affecting an estimated 1.6 billion people. However, there is still a lack of awareness about the consequences of iron deficiency and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. Iron deficiency anemia is the most serious form of iron deficiency and can have serious health consequences. As of the report, iron deficiency anemia affects an estimated 1.2 billion people worldwide, with the greatest burden in low- and middle-income countries. 
  • Significant Increase in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Cases – Global Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) prevalence was 460 per 100,000 population in 2019 and these cases are estimated to continue to increase. Hence, there is an increasing demand for ferritin testing services in the upcoming years for providing rheumatoid arthritis treatment at the right time.
  • Increasing Blood Cancer, and Non-Cancerous Blood Disease Cases- The serum ferritin level is usually high in patients dealing with pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, leukemia, non-cancerous blood disease, and others. These levels of ferritin are checked regularly, to determine the level of iron in the body. Generally, the normal range is between 11 to 200 ng/ml, and the person with cancer has a ferritin level of around 126 ng/ml.
  • Growing Older Population – In 2019, the number of people aged 65 and over worldwide was 703 million, according to a United Nations report. It is estimated that by 2050, 1.5 billion older people worldwide will be affected. Globally, the proportion of people over the age of 65 increased from 6% in 1990 to 9% in 2019. It is expected to increase to 16% by 2050. There is a high chance, that ferritin levels can rise with the age owing to their lower diet, and advanced age.


  • Availability of Alternative Methods - The expansion of the ferritin test market is expected to be hampered by the high cost of ferritin tests and the availability of alternative transferrin saturation tests. Furthermore, transferrin saturation tests are more common than ferritin tests in humans. Therefore, it is considered to be a hindrance to market growth. 
  • Lack of Awareness Regarding Tests Takes Place in Low and Middle-Income Countries.
  • Less Awareness About the Test

Ferritin Testing Segmentation

Indication (Anemia, Hemochromatosis, Pregnancy, Lead Poisoning)

The anemia segment in the ferritin testing market is anticipated to hold the largest share of 35% by the end of 2035. A person with anemia does not have enough healthy red blood cells to properly oxygenate the body's tissues, which can lead to adverse effects on the body, such as fatigue, weakness, and headaches. Anemia can take many forms and each has its etiology. It can range from moderate to severe, and it can be temporary or permanent. According to the Global Nutrition Report, as of May 2021, 613.2 million adolescent girls and women aged 15 to 49 (32.8% prevalence) are affected by anemia, Prevalence in pregnant women (35.3 million, 40.1%) and non-pregnant women (577.9% prevalence). 1 million, 32.5%) adolescent girls and women. 

End Users (Hospitals, Diagnostic Laboratories, Specialty Clinics)

The hospital's segment is anticipated to account for the largest share of 45% by the end of 2035. The growing number of hospitals and their infrastructure development is expected to drive segment growth. According to the American Hospital Association survey, there are currently approximately 6,146 hospitals in the United States. The US spent about $3.6 trillion on health care in 2018, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  During the projected time frame, rising hospital admission rates and the prevalence of iron deficiency are anticipated to fuel the expansion of the hospital sector in the worldwide ferritin testing market.
