Clinical laboratories are essentially centers for conducting diagnostic testing services that help in identifying disease causes, level of progression (stage) of the disease, resultant abnormalities and imbalances in the physiology, and other such factors. These tests and services provided by clinical laboratories are recorded in the form of reports that help physicians in determining the best suitable course of treatment for the patient, depending upon various etiologic, demographic and financial factors.

The global clinical laboratory services market is estimated to account for US$ 255.5 billion in 2020 and expected to reach around US$ 381.6 billion by the end of 2027.

Global Clinical Laboratory Services Market: Drivers

High prevalence of chronic diseases is expected to propel growth of the global clinical laboratory services market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the American Cancer Society, in 2019, there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths in the U.S.

Moreover, increasing geriatric population is also expected to aid in growth of the global clinical laboratory services market. For instance, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. geriatric population is expected to reach 77 million by 2034.       

North America held dominant position in the global clinical laboratory services market in 2019, accounting for 43.70% share in terms of volume, followed by Europe and Asia pacific, respectively.

Global Clinical Laboratory Services Market: Restraints

Stringent and changing regulatory scenario is expected to hinder growth of the global clinical laboratory services market. The U.S. FDA that controls the approval and commercialization of medical devices in the country has claimed its control over laboratory developed tests (LDTs) as well, although there has been no enforcement exercised by the FDA to require laboratories to comply with its regulations.

Moreover, clinical laboratories in developing countries suffer inadvertent neglect and are not well-supported to ensure accurate diagnosis. Such scenario is also expected to aid in growth of the market.
