Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Urinalysis is carried out as routine medical checkup, pregnancy check-up, pre-surgery preparation, or on hospital admission to treat various disorders. It may be used to screen for and/or help diagnose conditions such as a kidney disorders, urinary tract infections, liver problems, diabetes or other metabolic conditions.
The global urinalysis market is estimated to account for US$ 1,249.0 Mn in terms of value and is expected to reach US$ 1,779.9 Mn by the end of 2027.
Global Urinalysis Market: Drivers
Increasing prevalence of kidney diseases is expected to propel growth of the global urinalysis market over the forecast period. For instance, according to European Renal Association – European Dialysis and Transplant Association’s data in 2018, over 850 million people worldwide have some form of kidney disease.
Moreover, increasing geriatric population is also expected to boost demand for urinalysis. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, geriatric population is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050, up from 900 million in 2015.
Consumables held dominant position in the global urinalysis market in 2019, accounting for 67.5% share in terms of volume, followed by Instruments.
