Clinical Immunoanalyzer Market Introduction
Clinical immunoanalyzer is a diagnostic device used to detect specific analytes in blood or in fluids by employing immunoassay processes such as chemiluminescence immunoassay, enzyme linked fluorescent immunoassay, enzyme linked immunosorbent assay, and radioimmunoassay (RIA). An immunoanalyzer comprises washer, reagent dispenser, auto sampler, and the offered product depending upon the configuration and test options. Few clinical immunoanalyzer products use automated chemical analyser which reduces manual intervention and improves the workflow. These clinical immunoanalyzers are used in hospitals and laboratories for the detection of bacterial infections and viral toxins. These are also used in drug monitoring, allergy testing, as cancer markers and in detecting toxins.

Global Clinical Immunoanalyzer Market Dynamics
High Prevalence and Incidence Rates of Chronic and Infectious Diseases to Drive Demand for Clinical Immunoanalyzers
Prevalence of infectious and chronic diseases across the globe drives demand for early diagnosis. Hence, diagnosis of infectious diseases is one of the leading applications of clinical immunoanalyzers. There has been an increase in investment in the development of new assays for diagnosis of various infectious diseases. In April 2017, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded Siemens Healthineers for the development of Zika virus immunoassay test to be used on its Advia platform of immunoassay analyzers. High prevalence of infectious diseases is projected to drive demand for diagnostic tests. Demand for clinical immunoanalyzers is likely to increase owing to its benefits in monitoring transfusion medicine, such as blood transfusion and organ transplant. Moreover, incidence of endocrinology diseases such as thyroid dysfunction, diabetes mellitus, and also the incidences of osteoporosis is rising owing to changing lifestyles. This is likely to boost demand for clinical immunoanalyzers.

Development of New Assays to Expand Application Areas to Boost Market
The increasing knowledge on biomarkers of various chronic diseases has driven industry experts and researchers to apply this information in the development of new assays to expand the applications of automated immunoassay analyzers. Development in the fields of genomics and proteomics has expanded the database of biomarkers used by industry players to develop new assays. For example, a chemiluminescence assay has been developed to test vitamin D deficiency, which was earlier diagnosed through manual ELISA methods. New molecular diagnostic tests are being developed for infectious diseases; however, these tests lack high throughput and short test time features, which make immunoassay analyzers such as ELISA and CLIA the preferred choice. Drug monitoring is another area where automated immunoassay manufacturers are investing to develop new assays that shorten the test time and help in drug monitoring.
Pressure on Laboratories to Reduce Operational & Capital Expenses to Restrain Market
Stringent laws and regulations and decline in reimbursements from the public sector in the developed markets such as the U.S. and countries in Western Europe are inducing independent diagnostic laboratories to reduce capital expenditure. Moreover, factors such as rise in competition and consolidation among hospitals and diagnostic laboratories are anticipated to restrain the market in the near future.
