Global Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostic Devices Market Highlights 2020-2029
The global point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices market is projected to grow with a moderate CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029. The demand for POC testing devices for COVID-19, such as glucometers, pulse oximeters, and rapid COVID-19 test kits among others, observed a forward surge in the year 2020, owing to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, and the need amongst nations to diagnose the virus that has affected millions of people globally. According to the statistics by the World Health Organization (WHO), a total of 117,332,262 confirmed cases of COVID-19 has been reported till the 10th of March 2021. Alternatively, throughout the forecast period, the market is predicted to grow on account of the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases worldwide and the need amongst individuals for the diagnosis of these diseases. Additionally, the increasing accuracy of the analysis obtained from these devices, and the rapid advancements observed in these devices, are further anticipated to drive the market growth in the coming years.
Introduction to Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostic Devices
Point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices, also known as near-patient diagnostic devices, are referred to all those devices which are used to obtain diagnostic results while being close to the patient. These diagnoses devices are usually portable and are performed at the point where the patient is receiving care, usually outside the laboratory, without the intervention of a non-laboratory person.
Market Size and Forecast
The global point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices market is thriving on account of the growing demand for pre-diagnosis of diseases at home environment, backed by the rising prevalence of target diseases and the need amongst individuals to diagnose and address common diseases at home. Additionally, the increasing focus of POC device manufacturers for commercializing portable diagnosis equipment for home healthcare settings is further anticipated to contribute to the market growth.
The market is segmented by end-user into home, clinics, hospitals, assisted living healthcare facilities, laboratories, and others. Among these segments, the clinics segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share by the end of 2021 and is majorly contributed by community pharmacies and retail clinics. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the improving healthcare coverage across several developing and developed nations around the globe, along with the increasing access to novel diagnostic technologies, and the growing affordability of these diagnosis devices for performing tests, such as glycosylated hemoglobin (A1C) and cholesterol among others. Consecutively, the home segment is projected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Growing Prevalence of Infectious Diseases and the Need for Detection and Diagnosis of these Diseases to Drive the Market Growth
According to the statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of new tuberculosis cases in the year 2018 in the United States was registered as 9025 numbers. Additionally, in the same year, new salmonella cases were 60,999, new Lyme disease cases were 33,666, and new meningococcal disease cases were 327.
Access to quality and timely healthcare services in several under-developed and developing nations is a critical challenge as the healthcare infrastructure is highly sporadic. In such circumstances, POC testing plays a very important role as the contribution from several community pharmacies and retail clinics can greatly improve the management of infectious diseases. Additionally, favorable support of the government of several nations in terms of financial aid for making the diagnosis of infectious diseases affordable, and for the research and development of advanced diagnostic technologies for lowering the prevalence of such diseases, are further anticipated to drive the market growth in the coming years.
Stringent Regulatory Policies for the Approval of POC Testing Kits to Hamper the Market Growth
One of the major factors anticipated to hamper the growth of the market is the multi-layered regulations set by the FDA for the premarket approval of POC testing kits. Companies manufacturing POC diagnostic devices have to follow the stringent regulatory norms and submit performance data to these regulatory bodies to obtain clearance certificates for the marketing of these products, thereby raising the overall cost of operations, and further raising the end product cost. Such a factor is anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
