Over the years, the increasing introduction oftransportable, portable, and handheld instruments has resulted in the migration of POCtesting from the hospital environment to a range of medical environments including theworkplace, home, disaster care and most recently, convenience clinics.Moreover POC test devices have contributed significantly to the growth of the overalldiagnostics market over the past 10 years. As more diagnostic manufacturers pursueCLIA waiver status for their POC devices and CE Mark for POC or self use, moredecentralized test venues are investing in non-waived rapid tests and instruments. POCtesting appears to be headed for an even bigger role in diagnosis and monitoring patientcare and the world market for POC tests has shown consistent growth, a trend that isexpected to continue. This report, Worldwide Point of Care Testing Markets, includesthe following: Market Estimates and Forecasts for POC OTC Market Estimates and Forecasts for POC Professional Testing Product Information Products in Development Revenues (2009) of Leading Companies Trends in POC Testing Company Profiles Analyst ConclusionsThe field for rapid test devices is crowded, worldwide, more than 100 companies marketrapid tests using the whole gamut of instruments, devices and technologies that reducetest times to minutes or hours in some cases. Growth in POC testing is fueled by theincreasing number of diagnosed diabetics, by the globalization of infectious diseasesand the associated public health issues, and by the need to monitor an ever-growinggroup of people with chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, cancerand other chronic conditions.
Market analysis in this report covers world markets for point of care tests, however thereader will find a bias toward the developed areas of the globe -- North America, Japanand Western Europe. However public health and infectious disease are a growingglobal problem and where possible the report covers POC products related to globalpublic health and healthcare delivery issues. The following specific POC testingsegments are included: Glucose Testing Critical Care Infectious Diseases Urinalysis Cholesterol HbA1c Coagulation Hematology, Chemistry/Immunoassays Infectious Diseases, Fecal Occult Blood Pregnancy, Cardiac Markers Oncology Urinalysis, Drugs of AbuseAll market data are based on factory sales to the end user and not retail pricing orreimbursement payments. Data are presented in U.S. dollars and the market size forcategories of tests, and for specific analytes is provided where possible with certainty.The dollar value of a market segment is directly proportional to the number of testsperformed, because the cost of the instrumentation is generally buried in the per testprice.The information presented in this report is derived on publicly available informationsources such as company, government, and medical organization reports. The analysisis based on the authors industry knowledge combined with literature searches andinterviews with industry professionals and experts in the areas of POC tests,decentralized healthcare and healthcare economics.TABLE OF CONTENTSCHAPTER ONE: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Scope and Methodology Size and Growth of the Market Market TrendsCHAPTER TWO: INTRODUCTION
