With the growing need for early disease diagnosis and improved patient outcomes, in-vitro diagnostics is shifting from centralized laboratories to decentralized point-of-care (POC) testing. POC testing is gaining traction as it enables rapid detection of analytes near to the patient, which facilitates quick medical decisions and better disease diagnosis, monitoring, and management.
The global point of care diagnostics/testing market is expected to reach $30.9 billion by 2024 from $19.5 billion in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period (2018 to 2024).
