COVID-19 Outbreak Multiplies Growth Opportunities across Point-of-Care Diagnostics Market due to Increased Testing, Notes Study by TMR

The point-of-care diagnostics market is expected to observe good growth prospects during the forecast period of 2016-2024. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is one of the prominent reasons for the exponential growth of the point-of-care diagnostics market.

Furthermore, other reasons such as the expanding prevalence of numerous infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, AIDS, and others will serve as growth boosters. The overall need for making the healthcare sector more patient-oriented will serve as a vital growth propeller for the point-of-care diagnostics market between 2016 and 2024.

Point-of-care diagnostics is a method used for rapid detection of a disease. This method enables rapid detection of disease and helps in better management and monitoring. Early detection ensures good health outcomes for the patient. Many other benefits will bring immense growth opportunities for the point-of-care diagnostics market during the forecast period of 2016-2024.

Some prominent types of point-of-care diagnostics testing are solid phase assay test, lateral flow assay test, agglutination assay test, and flow-through test. The extensive utilization of point-of-care diagnostics techniques in fertility and pregnancy tests, infectious disease tests, blood glucose tests, cholesterol monitoring, and substance abuse tests will bring good growth prospects.

The rising expenditure on healthcare infrastructure by the government bodies of numerous countries and the increasing use of point-of-care diagnostics due to the COVID-19 outbreak will lay a red carpet of growth.
