Press release -

In Vitro Diagnostics Global Market to grow by 4.9% (2008-2018) to reach $72.7 billion by 2018

The In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) industry has been confronting a range of issues, such as regulations, industry consolidation, reforms in healthcare, low level of technological innovations and ever-changing demographics. Though some of these challenges may seem insurmountable, the glimmer of hope always exists that could rejuvenate the IVD industry over the coming years. Improvement in healthcare infrastructure, growth in personalized medicine based on bespoke solutions and companies’ focus towards growth-centric emerging markets certainly constitute some of the major factors that can be looked up to.

The arrival of novel technologies and innovations has spawned assays and biomarkers that would play crucial roles in the high-growth areas of infectious diseases, women’s health, cancer and cardiovascular conditions. Molecular diagnostics and the genomic reform have been the primary drivers of this growth, which are expected to sustain this level not only by tailoring existing drug therapies for individual patients, but also through developing new drug therapies that would enable in the better identification of patient populations that could prospectively benefit from drug treatment. Companies would do well to concentrate on tests based on biomarkers, such as those utilizing protein-based biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease, and the genomic revolution, with solutions using gene-based testing for indicating the probability of a range of cancers.

Though it may seem that the IVD industry is at a vital crossroad, looking hither and thither, the key point remains focusing on the above-mentioned areas to garner adequate standing that would enable in a complete turnaround. Personalized medicine appears to be a crucial aspect that has to be looked into with detail, so as to ascertain where the future of this industry lies.
