Analyst’s Views:

The physician office diagnostic market is expected to grow at a steady pace over the forecast period. Rising prevalence of chronic and lifestyle diseases along with the trend of shifting diagnostics from hospitals to physicians' offices will be the key drivers. Many diagnostic tests can now be accurately and easily performed in physicians' offices, allowing for quicker diagnosis and treatment decisions. This shift is encouraged by payers to reduce healthcare costs.

Physician Office Diagnostic Market Drivers:

  • Increasing Demand for Point-of-Care Testing: There is a growing demand for point-of-care testing in physician offices and other immediate healthcare settings. Point-of-care testing enables rapid diagnosis and immediate availability of test results, allowing for quick medical decision-making and timely initiation of treatment. This demand is fueled by the need for faster and more convenient diagnostic solutions, especially in emergency departments, primary care clinics, and remote or resource-limited settings. For instance, on June 26, 2023, Sysmex Corporation, a Japanese healthcare company, launched a testing system in Europe for the rapid detection of antimicrobial susceptibility. The system detects the presence or absence of bacteria and assesses the effectiveness of antimicrobials using urine samples from patients suspected of having Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs).
  • Emphasis on Preventive Healthcare: There is a shifting focus towards preventive healthcare and early disease detection. Physician office diagnostics play a crucial role in enabling the early identification of diseases and risk factors, allowing for timely intervention and improved patient outcomes. Preventive healthcare measures, including routine screenings and diagnostic tests, are being promoted to mitigate the impact of chronic diseases and reduce healthcare costs associated with advanced-stage conditions.
  • Technological Advancements in Diagnostic Devices: Rapid advancements in diagnostic technologies have expanded the capabilities of physician office diagnostics. Innovations in point-of-care testing devices, portable analyzers, molecular diagnostics, and imaging modalities have improved the speed, accuracy, and reliability of diagnostic results. These advancements enable healthcare professionals to obtain real-time information and make informed treatment decisions, leading to enhanced patient care and management. For instance, on January 18, 2023, Cipla Limited, an Indian multinational pharmaceutical company, announced the launch of Cippoint, a point- of-care testing device. This state-of-the-art device offers a wide range of testing parameters including cardiac markers, diabetes, infectious diseases, fertility, thyroid function, inflammation, metabolic markers, and coagulation markers. The device is CE IVD approved – indicating the device is approved by the European In-Vitro Diagnostic Device Directive, thus ensuring reliable testing solutions. Moreover, in November 2021, Royal Philips, a global leader in health technology, announced new Artficial intelligence (AI)-enabled innovations in Medical Resonance imaging launching at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting which held from November 23 to December 2, in Chicago, U.S.
  • Increased Focus on Personalized Medicine: The emergence of personalized medicine has driven the demand for diagnostic tests that provide tailored treatment approaches. Physician office diagnostics offer the advantage of immediate test results, enabling healthcare professionals to make personalized treatment decisions based on individual patient characteristics and disease profiles. This personalized approach contributes to better patient outcomes and improved treatment efficacy.
