The top three emerging trends driving the global clinical chemistry analyzers market according to Technavio healthcare and life sciences research analysts are:
- Focus on fully automated clinical chemistry analyzers
- Outsourcing from hospitals to reference laboratories
- Higher adoption rate of point-of-care testing (POCT)
Focus on fully automated clinical chemistry analyzers
Clinical chemistry analyzers have been undergoing constant changes, with fully automated devices now available in the market. These analyzers can perform functions such as recognition of sample and reagent bottles, tube sampling, cap piercing, automatic re-run, and dilution.
“The automated clinical chemistry analyzers not only save human time and effort but also require lesser volumes of smaller sample and reagent. They are mainly used in coagulation laboratories, emergency rooms, and cancer clinics,” says Srinivas Sashidhar, a lead analyst at Technavio for orthopedics and medical devices research.
Outsourcing from hospitals to reference laboratories
Value-based outsourcing is one of the major trends in the market, where the laboratory tests are outsourced to clinical reference laboratories. Small hospitals lacking basic infrastructure for clinical diagnosis have agreements with clinical laboratories. The hospitals outsource the patients to these labs for undergoing various diagnostic tests.
In the past years, the market is moving from fee-for-service to value-based-care model to shift laboratory services to outsourcing diagnostic vendors. The shift from hospital outsourcing services to reference laboratories will be a major driver for the clinical chemistry analyzer market during the forecast period.
Higher adoption rate of point-of-care testing (POCT)
“Point-of-care testing is a popular trend in the clinical chemistry analyzers and in-vitro diagnostics markets since it provides faster results and supports patient-centered approaches to health care delivery,” says Srinivas.
The sensory POCT technology enables rapid analysis of blood samples, with devices designed to address the challenges faced in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and stroke. The high cost of clinical diagnostic devices has triggered the adoption rate and increased the demand for POCT devices.
