The clinical diagnostic tests performed by laboratories can be broadly classified into four major categories, namely, clinical chemistry, medical microbiology & cytology, human and tumour genetics and other esoteric tests. Ranging from routine blood and urine tests to high-end genetic analysis including fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), molecular expression testing etc., clinical laboratories offer numerous tests that help detect disease progression and abnormalities. The three major types of service providers in this market include hospital-based laboratories, clinic-based laboratories and stand-alone laboratories. The global market for clinical laboratory services is expected to record a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period of 2013 to 2019, to grow from a USD 162.71 billion market in 2012 to a USD 241.37 billion market in 2019.

With the increasing incidence rates of debilitating conditions such as cancer, diabetes and infectious diseases, the number of patients that will opt for such tests will continue to increase in the future and thereby increase the demand for these services. Moreover, the percentage of aged population in the U.S. is expected to grow to an estimated 20% by 2030. Such a large population of elderly people in the U.S. alone will lead to high testing volumes for clinical laboratories.
