Glycated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) Testing Market, 2014 - 2024

NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Glycated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) Testing Market, 2014 - 2024

http://www.reportlinker.com/p02317667/Glycated-Haemoglobin-HbA1c-Testing-Market-2014---2024.html

INTRODUCTION

Diabetes is a chronic disease growing at an alarming rate around the globe.Over 382 million people are estimated to be currently suffering from the disease; the number, though, 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 expected to look for more efficient and accurate diagnostic tests in the future. 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 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.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

With a large number of devices already in market for HbA1c monitoring and more to come in the future years, HbA1c market is likely to shape up much better in the coming years. We have strong reasons to believe that the overall market outlook will stay positive in the mid-long term.

The "HbA1c Diabetes Monitoring Market, 2014-2024" report provides an exhaustive study of the growing market for HbA1c tests. Amongst other things, the report identifies HbA1c analyzers that are currently available for point of care and laboratory testing, and the high level trends which are likely to govern the evolution of this market in the US, EU5 and BRICS countries. The report also provides a competitive landscape wherein we have identified the most efficient POC devices in the market based on parameters such as user friendliness and other technical details.

One of the key objectives of this report is to understand the current and future state of the HbA1c diabetes monitoring market across various regions worldwide. This is done by analyzing the following:

- Prevalence and growth of diabetes in different countries

- Number of patients going for HbA1c tests

- Frequency of HbA1c test per patient per year

- Variable price points

- Other technical details such as sample volume required, time taken for analysis, precision etc.

We have also provided a detailed view on the key drivers behind the growth of this market, likely challenges and upcoming threats under the SWOT framework. The base year for the report is 2014. The report provides mid -long term market forecasts for the period 2014 - 2024.

EXAMPLE HIGHLIGHTS

1. We identified 41 companies which are active in the HbA1c monitoring market. Amongst the 41 companies, nine manufacture both laboratory and POC analyzers. Except for the bigger companies which account for 41% of the overall industry, the nature of the market is quite fragmented.

2. Currently, 108 HbA1c analyzers are commercially available. Of these, 71% are for laboratory use and the remaining 29% are for either home use or at physician's office.

3. Specifically, for the POC testing, turbidimetry immunoassay and boronate affinity chromatography are the most commonly deployed principles (accounting for 50% and 35% of the POC devices respectively). The POC testing market has witnessed growing interest levels; acceptance is likely to rise further as a result of increased end-user convenience. Currently

4. For laboratory analyzers, Siemens, Beckman Coulter, Roche, Bio-Rad, Abbott, ELITech are some well-known players. The global distribution network of some of these players has positioned them to actively monetize this growing market.

5. The overall market, in addition to an already well-established macro environment, will continue to benefit from continuous improvements in technology. In our base case, we expect the global HbA1c diabetes monitoring market to witness an annualized growth rate of 8.8%.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

Most of the data presented in this report has been gathered via secondary and primary research. For all our projects, we conduct interviews with experts in the area (academia, industry, medical practice and other associations) to solicit their opinions on emerging trends in the market. This is primarily useful for us to draw out our own opinion on how the market will evolve across different regions and technology segments. Where possible, the available data has been checked for accuracy from multiple sources of information.

The secondary sources of information include

- Annual reports

- Investor presentations

- SEC filings

- Industry databases

- News releases from company websites

- Government policy documents

- Industry analysts' views

While the focus has been on forecasting the market over the coming ten years, the report also provides our independent view on various technological and non-commercial trends emerging in the industry. This opinion is solely based on our knowledge, research and understanding of the relevant market gathered from various secondary and primary sources of information.

CHAPTER OUTLINES
