Glycated Haemoglobin Testing Market Overview

Diabetes is a chronic disease growing at an alarming rate across the globe. Over 382 million people are estimated to be currently suffering from the disease; the number is likely to increase to 592 million by 2035.

With a very high prevalence, especially in some regions such as China and India, an increasing proportion of diabetic patients are likely to benefit from more efficient and accurate diagnostic tests in the future. Furthermore, an efficient measurement of the condition can help lower the rate of serious complications, such as heart attack and stroke. HbA1c, adapted for clinical testing to monitor diabetes in 1990s, is one such test; it can monitor and give average glucose results over the past 120 days. The test offers significant advantages over usual blood glucose monitoring assays; these include no prior fasting requirement, high sample stability, low day-to-day variation and limited impact from external physical factors such as stress.

The adoption of HbA1c tests has gradually risen in the recent past. While the laboratory analyzers are likely to strengthen their existing position, a significant growth will also be driven by Point of Care (POC) devices. POC devices bring a change in overall diabetes management and the lifestyle of the individual. Compared to laboratory tests, they can be used at home or physician’s office with instantaneous results and accuracy. In addition, considering the lifetime costs, POC testing is comparatively cheaper than laboratory testing. Increased efforts to overcome lack of awareness, especially in emerging markets, are also expected to drive adoption levels further.
