Clinical Diagnostic Market is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Increasing Geriatric Population

The clinical diagnostic market is estimated to be valued at US$ 83.34 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
The clinical diagnostic market encompasses products such as instruments, reagents, and software used for in vitro testing of patient samples such as blood, urine, and tissue to detect diseases, conditions, or infections. Clinical diagnostic tools help physicians to accurately diagnose diseases at an early stage and guide treatment planning.

Market key trends:
The global clinical diagnostic market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, owing to increasing geriatric population globally which is more prone to chronic diseases. According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the number of people aged 60 years or above globally is projected to double from current 12% to 22% by 2050. Further, growing preference for point-of-care (POC) testing and decentralized laboratories is propelling the demand for clinical diagnostic products. POC testing offers advantages such as real-time results, reduced turnaround time, and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, technological advancements in clinical diagnostic tools including automation, digitization, and artificial intelligence have accelerated early disease detection, monitoring, and management, thereby boosting market growth.
