DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/hf4wfj/global_glycated) has announced the addition of the "Global Glycated Hemoglobin Testing Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The Global Glycated Hemoglobin Testing market to grow at a CAGR of 10.22% over the period 2014-2019.
This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of Global Glycated Hemoglobin Testing market for the period 2015-2019.
Glycated hemoglobin helps measure the concentration of glucose in the blood of an individual. HbA1c, a specific chemical form of glycated hemoglobin, is used to determine a person's average blood glucose level over a period. It is a standardized test recommended by doctors for the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes or to test the control level of the blood glucose. The testing can be done in a laboratory or at a POC center. Different types of technologies, such as chromatography, immunoassay, capillary electrophoresis, direct enzymatic assay, and micro-optical detection method, are used in HbA1c testing.
One key trend upcoming in this market is the increased adoption of POC HbA1c testing. Rapid result outcomes and faster treatment decisions have increased the use of POC HbA1c testing for measuring blood glucose.
According to the report, the growth of the Global Glycated Hemoglobin Testing market is predominantly driven by the growing incidence of diabetes in the world. An increase in the aging population, sedentary lifestyles, increasing obesity, and inappropriate dietary habits can lead to chronic diseases that foster the demand for HbA1c testing.
Further, the report states that the availability of substitute tests, such as test strips, glucose meters, lancets, and continuous blood glucose meters, poses a serious threat to the use of HbA1c testing.
