Blood Testing Market Overview
A blood testing is an examination of various cmponents in the blood or to count different types of blood cells. Blood tests are prescribed to check disease pathogens or agents, to check for antibodies or tumor markers, or to see how well desired treatments are working. Blood tests help physician to evaluate the working conditions of organs, diagnosing diseases and risk factors for heart disease, to check if medicines are working, cases of any infection or genetic conditions and how well the blood is clotting. Blood tests take only a few minutes to complete and can be carried out in any local hospital or clinic.
The global blood testing market size was worth $ XX billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach $ XX billion by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2019-2026).
Blood Testing Market Dynamics
The blood testing market growth is driven by several factors such as the increased prevalence of the infectious disease, technological advancements, rise in geriatric population, rise in R&D and rising number of blood donation and blood donors.
The burden of infectious diseases are rapidly increasing worldwide. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2001 42% of the total reported deaths in the world were due to infectious diseases, it is estimated that by 2020 almost half of all deaths worldwide would occur due to infectious diseases. Infectious diseases occur in both developing as well as developed countries, although treatment options are much better in developed economies. Infectious diseases can be diagnosed with blood tests. With the rising prevalence of infectious diseases, the market for blood testing is also increasing for faster and easier diagnosis. Blood tests detect infections prevalent in blood as well as working of the vital body organs that might be affected by infections.
There are various technological advancements in the blood testing market. Many companies present in the segment are working for new technology advances that can detect cancer by a blood test. For instance, ApoCell, Inc., a company based in Texas, has launched ApoCell to commercialize biomarker technologies that monitor the effectiveness of cancer drugs. Through this venture, the company developed ApoStream™, a proprietary circulatory tumor cells isolation technology. Similarly, many universities, such as the University of California, San Diego are also working on cancer detection through blood tests. Many other companies are focusing on one drop diagnostics in a faster way. A San Diego based company, Genalyte can run up to 128 different tests on a single finger prick of blood in under 15 minutes. Another Silicon Valley startup, Athelas, developed a portable diagnostic device leveraging deep learning and machine vision to rapidly measure white blood cell count and to tell the medical professional whether it can identify leukemia, infections, inflammations and other diseases. The Boston and Neuchatel, a Switzerland-based company, has a diagnostic panel housed on a biochip that can deliver a test result within 15 minutes from a single drop of blood.
Geriatric population is the target population of many non-communicable chronic diseases and infectious diseases. According to the National Institutes of Health, the world's older population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. In 2016, 8.5% of the people worldwide that is equivalent to 617 million are aged 65 or over. According to data collected by the United Nations, the elderly population worldwide is expected to reach 17% of world's population by 2050, that means will reach 1.6 billion. Blood tests are more necessary in the elderly as they require continuous monitoring for various diseases and treatment such as diabetes.
There is an increase in voluntary blood donation all over the globe. According to WHO, in 2012, around 108 million donations were collected worldwide, which is an increase over the past decade. The donated blood is screened for various infections and diseases. Few of the tests carried out are for hepatitis B and C, HIV, Syphilis, and other tests for detecting impaired antibodies. Many infectious diseases are transmitted through blood to prevent those diseases from spreading blood testing of donors is necessary. Blood testing of the donor is also done to check the compatibility of the blood group.
