The World Market for Point of Care (POC) Diagnostics, 2014-2019


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

The World Market for Point of Care (POC) Diagnostics

Visit our 'Point of Care Testing' curated page for complete industry coverage.

Clinical diagnostic tests performed outside the central laboratory or decentralized testing are generally known as point of care (POC) diagnostic tests. The increasing introduction of transportable, portable, and handheld diagnostic instruments has resulted in the migration of point of care diagnostic testing from the hospital environment to a range of medical environments including the workplace, home, disaster care and most recently, convenience clinics. 

Who are the top POC diagnostic companies in the healthcare industry? What types of point of care diagnostic testing is selling fastest?  What disease areas will drive near-patient testing forward?  Is point of care testing earning its place in clinical practice?  How is home testing progressing? Kalorama Information's report, The World Market for Point of Care (POC) Diagnostics, presents current analysis of the point of care diagnostics industry and the role it plays in healthcare. Kalorama Information takes an in-depth look at the POC diagnostic testing market, both professional and self-testing. 

Discussed Point of Care Diagnostic Testing Market Segments:


  • Blood Glucose Tests
  • Blood and Electrolytes Testing Market
  • Rapid Coagulation
  • Rapid Cardiac Markers
  • Substance Abuse Testing
  • Pregnancy and Fertility Testing
  • Colon Cancer Screening/Fecal Occult Blood Testing
  • Infectious Disease Testing
  • Cholesterol Testing
  • Cancer Testing
  • Urine Strip Testing
  • Miscellaneous POC Testing
The menu for point-of-care diagnostic testing continues to expand. The traditional set of POC tests includes: blood glucose testing, blood gas and electrolytes analysis, rapid coagulation testing, rapid cardiac markers diagnostics, drugs of abuse screening, urine strips testing, pregnancy testing, fecal occult blood analysis, hemoglobin diagnostics, infectious disease testing and cholesterol screening. In the past 5-10 years the following tests were added: HgA1c, B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP), whole-blood lactate, D-Dimer, C-Reactive Protein (CRP). 

Point of care diagnostic testing devices have contributed significantly to the growth of the overall diagnostics market over the past 10 years. POC testing appears to be headed for an even bigger role in diagnosis and monitoring patient care. New diagnostic technologies are allowing point of care devices to produce quantitative lab-quality test results that can be transferred automatically to an information system, a remote caregiver service for consultation or an electronic medical record. 
The report’s geographic scope is worldwide with information for specific geographical regions, world demographics, and other general issues affecting the market. All market data pertain to the world market at the manufacturers’ level. The point of care diagnostic testing market includes manufacturer tests excluding services. The base year for data is 2014.
