|Growth Opportunities in the Western European IVD Industry, Forecast to 2021|
|Increased R&D Investments and M&As Propel the Growth of Mobile POCT and Clinical Genomics Solutions|
Despite global economic and industry challenges, in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) markets continue to grow, mainly due to fast-growing segments like molecular diagnostics, point-of-care testing (POCT), and tissue diagnostics.. A few market dynamics are either positively or negatively affecting certain specific segments in the IVD space; for example, the self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG) segment's growth in emerging markets is severely dampened by the slowing growth from reimbursement reductions in Western Europe.The broad applicability of POCT, combined with downward pricing trends enabled by microfluidics integration, supports the long-term growth of this segment. The Western European markets continue to drive molecular diagnostics segment growth rather than the emerging Eastern European markets.
