U.S. IVD Market Overview:

U.S. IVD Market accounted for $15,746 million in 2016, and is estimated to reach at $20,707 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2017 to 2023. In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are intended for in vitro analysis of samples derived from the human body, to provide information for diagnostic, monitoring, and treatment purposes. They are used for diagnosis of various diseases such as infectious, cardiovascular, cancer, and others.

Increase in prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, diabetes, and lifestyle diseases and increase in geriatric population in the U.S. primarily drives the market. In addition, implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and increase in adoption of automated instruments in laboratories that enable accurate and fast test results have increased the IVD market growth. Furthermore, advert of point of care diagnosis and personalized medicine is anticipated to boost the market growth. However, lack of favorable reimbursement policies and stringent government regulations associated to the product approval, manufacturing, and sale of IVD are expected to hamper the market growth. Ongoing R&D activities related to IVD are anticipated to present new opportunities for the market.

 Increase in prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases

In past few decades, cases of increase in prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases have reached an alarming proportion due to an increasingly morbid lifestyle such as high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity, and high tobacco and alcohol use. According to the American Cancer Society estimates, in 2017 the cancer deaths accounted for approximately 600,920 and new cancer diagnosed cases accounted for approximately 1,688,780 cases in the U.S. The increase in rate of diseases have increased the demand for IVD market.

Increase in geriatric population

Aging population is on an increase, which results in rise in number of people in need of medical assistance. Growth in average life expectancies along with more affluent population improve healthcare expenditure by using the advanced in vitro diagnostic technologies for monitoring their health. According to the U.S. Census Bureau report “’An Aging World: 2015”, 46 million of the U.S. population comprises of population aged 65 years and above. This number is predicted to increase to nearly 98 million 2050. This escalation in rate of the geriatric population is expected to raise the demand for diagnosis, thereby driving the IVD market.

Technological advancements in IVD

The healthcare industry is developing at a significant rate due to demand for better healthcare services, significant investments by governments to improve healthcare infrastructure, rise in focus on the improvement of effectiveness, and safety of the medical devices. Earlier, molecular testing was time consuming and costly, but these days with automated technology one can get accurate, cost effective and quick results. For instance, in August 2016, FDA approved Alere Inc. product of Alere i RSV test, the first rapid molecular test that can be used at the point-of-care to detect RSV infection in 13 minutes or less.

Major companies operating in this market adopt product launch as their key development strategy. Companies profiled in this market include, 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 among others.

Key Market Players


Analyst Review

In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are used for early diagnosis of diseases & disorders and treatment management. In addition, they support developing and designing personalized medicine. Advancements in technology and extreme engineering have led to the development of efficient and fully automated medical devices. These technologies have led to the birth of various instruments, such as cardiologic tests, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-ray machines, hearing aids, blood screening instruments, Bio-chips, Radioimmunoassay (RIA), and others.

Immunodiagnostics accounted for the highest share owing to increase in demand for personalized medicine and increase in awareness and ease of use of self-monitoring techniques. In addition, increase in geriatric population and rise in prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases boost the market growth. Blood testing accounted for the highest market potential owing to growth in preference shift of the physicians towards blood-based diagnosis to provide rapid and reliable results. This factor is also anticipated to influence market growth. Furthermore, the increase in government expenditure in healthcare sector is anticipated to increase the market growth. According to the WHO, the U.S. government healthcare expenditure has increased from 20.78% in 2013 to 21.29% in 2014.
