UK IVD Market Overview:

UK IVD Market is accounted for $2,148 million in 2016, and is estimated to reach $3,127 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the analysis period (2017-2023). In vitro diagnostics are the medical devices, which are utilized to determine the diseased conditions. They require biological samples such as blood, urine, stool, tissues, and other body fluids, to detect diseases, conditions, and infections. These tests are easy to perform and offer accurate results. In addition, IVD has wide range of application in diagnosis of various diseases such as, infectious diseases, diabetes, cancer, cardiology diseases, autoimmune diseases, nephrology, and HIV/AIDS.

High rate in incidences of chronic diseases, advancement in IVD techniques, and rise in demand for minimally invasive techniques are expected to fuel the market growth during the analysis period. However, strict reimbursement policies and stringent government regulation in terms of product approval restrict the growth of the market.

Increase an Incidences of Chronic Diseases

IVD market in the UK is in its growth phase due to increase in incidence of chronic diseases such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative disorder, and diabetes. According to WHO, 75% of the total population suffers from one chronic condition, while 50% with two or more conditions. Thus, high rate of such diseases increases the demand for the IVD market.

Emergence of Minimally Invasive Technologies

IVD refers to diagnosis of disease caused by infection or disorder in laboratory conditions. Normally urine, saliva, blood, and others are used for analysis by minimally invasive technology. These minimally invasive techniques require a smallest possible incision in the body followed by the insertion of a long thin tube with a small camera. The images are projected on the monitors in the operating rooms to provide surgeons a magnified view of the internal organs and help detect and cure the disease. Moreover, advancement in minimally invasive techniques increase the demand for IVD market due to less incisional procedures. In this technology penetration process are being replaced by radiation to destroy the target tissue through high intensity of ultrasound beam.

Analyst Review

In vitro diagnostics (IVD) refers to diagnosis of diseases caused by infection or disorder in laboratory conditions. Biological samples such as, urine, saliva, such as blood, stool, urine, tissues, and other body fluids are utilized for analysis of several disease. IVD tests analyze biological samples using technologies such as polymerase chain reaction, microarray techniques, sequencing technology, and mass spectrometry for sample test preparation.

The UK IVD market is growing due to increase in government expenditure in healthcare sector, rise in incidences for chronic diseases, and growth in demand for non-invasive techniques. In addition, rise in prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases such as cancer, tuberculosis, diabetes, HIV, and others also drive the UK IVD market. In addition, government initiatives for the improvement of healthcare sector and rise in technological advancement is expected to provide high growth opportunities for the IVD market.

Major companies involved in the UK IVD market are Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Alere Inc., Biomerieux, Danaher Corporation, F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, Becton Dickinson and Company, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Bayer AG, Sysmex Corporation, and Johnson & Johnson.
