The global POCT market was estimated at $13.87 billion in 2017 and is estimated to grow over $23.92 billion by 2026.

The rise in the geriatric population along with the increased prevalence of chronic diseases is expected to boost the demand for POCT devices and drive growth of the global market. The POCT devices are portable, have quick Turn Around Time (TAT) and are easy to use which makes them more attractive for the end users, thereby increasing their demand and usage.

The global healthcare scenario is witnessing unprecedented epidemiological and demographic changes rapidly. These changes are due to the increasing geriatric population as well as the rising prevalence of diseases. As per the WHO statistics, the global elderly population (aged 65 years and over) was 562 million in 2012 and it rose by 55 million in 2015.

The prevalence of various chronic and lifestyle diseases has been increasing as well. It was estimated by WHO that the global prevalence of diabetes increased to 8.5% in adults over the age of 18 years in 2014 from 4.7% in 1980. Thus, the rising prevalence of diseases has led to increased morbidity and mortality thereby increasing the demand for better treatment and diagnostic services. Diagnosis is the very first and important step of treating any ailment. These factors have led to advancement in the field of In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD). With the advancement of technology, the field of IVD is evolving with the development of various devices which are minimally invasive as well as have better precision and accuracy.
