Clinical Laboratory Services Market in 2013-2019: Transparency Market Research

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research "Clinical Laboratory Services Market (Clinical Chemistry, Medical Microbiology & Cytology, Human & Tumor Genetics and Other Esoteric Tests) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019," the global clinical laboratory services market was valued at USD 162.71 billion in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2013 to 2019, to reach an estimated value of USD 241.37 billion in 2019.

Clinical laboratories refer to the centers for conducting diagnostic testing and related services to identify disease causes, level of progression (stage) of the disease, resultant abnormalities and imbalances in the physiology, and other such factors. Along with processing samples and generating patient reports, players in this market also offer informatics solutions which help in effective data management for the large volume of tests ordered and performed each day. The global market for clinical laboratory services is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period due to the increasing incidence rates of diseases worldwide along with the introduction of newer and sophisticated diagnostic tests.

The market for clinical laboratory services has been segmented by different categories of tests performed such as clinical chemistry, genetic tests, medical microbiology & cytology tests and other esoteric tests. The market for medical microbiology & cytology tests is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period due to the increasing burden of infectious diseases globally, that demands large testing volume capacities from clinical laboratories. Although core laboratory tests, which constitute the clinical chemistry market segment, are basic tests extensively conducted across patient populations, this market segment is expected to witness mediocre growth at a CAGR of 5.3%. This is due to the limited scope for innovation in this market in terms of developing newer tests and the growing importance of informatics solutions in the same.
