Point of Care Testing Market size to exceed $34.2 bn by 2024
Sellbyville, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/30/2019 -- Point of Care Testing Market size is set to exceed USD 34.2 billion by 2024; according to a new research study published by Global Market Insights, Inc. Increase in number of pathology labs and services equipped with advanced diagnostic equipment in North America will be one of the major factors driving the growth of POC testing market. Healthcare infrastructure development has resulted in the industry growth. Majority of the population staying in developed countries rely on healthcare facilities developed by the public healthcare sector, that will positively impact the industry growth.
Molecular diagnostics holds significant role in the field of microbiology. Conventional culture method is not helpful in obtaining timely results. Molecular testing technology allows nucleic acid detection directly through amplification and screening of sample. Real time PCR is used for this purpose. Industry players have been focusing their efforts on developing new point of care molecular diagnostic technologies to deliver faster results with high accuracy and specificity. Hence, increase in research and development will augment the market growth in the forthcoming years.
