The global blood testing market was estimated at REDACTED in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of REDACTED to reach REDACTED in 2023.

The global burden of chronic non-communicable, infectious and lifestyle diseases is rapidly increasing, and many patients suffer from multiple diseases, which leads to morbidity, loss of function and death.Therefore, an early and reliable diagnosis through blood testing is important for the detection, monitoring and treatment of the diseases.

This is particularly true considering the continuously expanding parameters which can be tested in blood.

North America holds the largest share in the blood testing market, followed by Europe, due to high healthcare expenditures, the presence of excellent healthcare facilities and infrastructure, government funding for research and development of newer and innovative products, and the development of technology for rapid and accurate diagnosis of diseases.

The Asia-Pacific region has the highest potential for growth in the blood testing industry during the forecast period owing to the large aging population, the rising incidence of chronic and infectious diseases, blood disorders, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, increasing disposable income, awareness about healthcare and disease complications and a growing number of hospitals and laboratories.

Blood testing for oncology is one of the most rapidly developing fields in the market, with the higher incidence of cancers and the development of companion diagnostics and precision medicine for the treatment of these diseases contributing to growth. Genetic testing has achieved significant progress over the years and shows great promise for early cancer diagnosis.

In recent years, there has been a surge in the growth of POCT, which has helped near-patient blood testing and diagnosis, in-home monitoring devices, and real-time tracking of blood glucose levels, lipid levels and blood clotting parameters.This trend is expected to continue with the development of newer technologies that integrate the accuracy and reliability of laboratory testing with the comfort of selfmonitoring.

New and exciting studies are being conducted for the development of blood tests that may cause breakthroughs in the diagnosis of diseases; such diagnoses were not previously possible. Blood tests are being developed to detect multiple cancers from a single drop of blood, to detect Alzheimer’s disease well before the onset of symptoms, to predict pre-term births, and to predict risk of autism and even the prognosis of anti-depressant therapy in patients. Next generation sequencing (NGS) techniques and realtime
sequencing for the diagnosis of complex diseases are set to be the blood testing methods of the future.
