|M&As Accelerate in the US IVD Industry as Participants Identify Unconventional Partners to Advance Technology|
|Tissue diagnostics, molecular diagnostics, and point-of-care segments offer strongest growth opportunities|
The In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) landscape in the United States is extremely dynamic, with a high level of merger and acquisition activity with many high-value deals still pending. Both clinical laboratories and manufacturers are increasingly vying for smaller specialized niche technology companies to increase their market share. Molecular point of care testing (POCT) and liquid biopsy continue to attract investment opportunities from private equity and venture capitalists. The new government in the United States aims to provide a retail-like experience for healthcare services. As a result, innovative and clinically vetted direct to consumer (DTC) diagnostic testing services are expected to thrive. Partnerships with non-healthcare (HC) companies are expected to empower core diagnostic companies with artificial intelligence (AI) and big data capabilities are on the rise. Given these market trends, it is important to understand the market dynamics to remain competitive and successful in the IVD market in the United States of America.
