HbA1c Testing Devices Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018–2026

HbA1c test is used to screen and diagnose for diabetes and prediabetes in patients. Hemoglobin molecule from the blood cell sticks to the glucose that gives rise to glycosylated hemoglobin molecule termed as hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C). Patients with high glucose level have more HbA1C present in  blood. Average blood glucose level of a person can be diagnosed by measuring this glycosylated hemoglobin molecule. It is important for diabetic patient to know the glucose level, as there might be risk of diabetes related complications. HbA1c test is considered more effective than checking the blood glucose level. Blood glucose level gives the presence of glucose at a single point time whereas, the HbA1c test gives blood glucose level status for 2-3 months. 

Increase in healthcare expenditure over diabetes management is owing to the growth of HbA1c testing devices market

Growing diabetes patient population globally is one of the important factor driving the growth HbA1c testing devices market.  According to World Health Organization (WHO), the number of patients with diabetes has increased from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. Around 5 million deaths were reported in 2015 due to diabetes and 2.2 million deaths were attributed to high blood glucose level. The data given by International Diabetes Federation showed the expenditure of 673 billion USD on diabetes in 2015. Additionally, rise prescription by physicians for HbA1c test is contributing to the growth of HbA1c testing devices market. Moreover, factors such as growing awareness about diabetes preventive care, rise in geriatric and obese population which are more prone to diabetes, upgrading technologies for management of diabetes are expected to fuel the growth of HbA1c testing devices market. However, some factors are likely to hamper the growth of HbA1c testing devices market, such as high cost of testing devices and limitations for the results of certain population, which include pregnant women, elder people, and non-Hispanic black. HbA1c testing devices market have opportunities in future, due to untapped market and rise in demand for medical tourism.
