Clinical Laboratory Service – Be informed of your health in advance
Around 70% of medical decisions are based on lab results, as revealed by statistic released by Quest Diagnostics. Thus, optimization of laboratory facilities to deliver quality and cost-effective patient care is of utmost importance for clinical laboratory service providers. The three major types of clinical laboratory service providers are hospital-based laboratories, clinic-based laboratories and standalone laboratories. Major factors impacting the dynamics of global clinical laboratory service market include growing aging population, increasing disease burden, and increasing number of preventive health check-ups.
The global clinical laboratory services market was valued at US$ 168.9 million in 2015 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period (2016 – 2024).
Growing susceptibility of aging population to chronic diseases
According to the U.S. Census Bureau Report in 2015, around 8.5% of the world population was aged 65 years and above, which is expected to reach 12% of the world population by 2030. Moreover, the report states that growth of the geriatric population would be significantly higher in developing regions of Asia and Latin America. The report further stats that deaths due to non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, lung disorders, cancer, and stroke is increasing at a rapid rate across the globe. This alarming trend is especially prevalent in the developing countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Thus, increasing elderly population and growing risk of diseases, especially non-communicable diseases is projected to significantly increase test volumes for clinical laboratory service providers during the forecast period.
Increasing uptake of routine health tests by consumers
Increasing health concerns coupled with growing risk of transmittable diseases among the populace is leading to rapid uptake in routine health check-ups by consumers. Unhealthy food habits is making the human population vulnerable to bacterial and viral infections. Demand is especially high for tests to detect malaria and tuberculosis, which are highly prevalent in tropical regions such as South Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Therefore, growth of the clinical laboratory services market in Latin America and Africa is projected to expand at a relatively high CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period.

The company also acquired ClearPath Diagnostics, a leading clinical laboratory service provider in Northeastern region of U.S., in October 2016.
