The market for point of care molecular diagnostics is likely to surpass USD 90 billion by 2032. Growing awareness regarding early disease diagnosis and advancements in automated technologies are expected to positively influence market outlook. New-generation diagnostic solutions are offering superior levels of accuracy, convenience of use, and portability enabling early detection of an array of infectious diseases. With the rising prevalence of infectious diseases and chronic illnesses such as cancer, molecular diagnosis has emerged as a vital tool in disease management and therapy. Furthermore, the growing emphasis on precision medicine is encouraging manufacturers to design high-performance testing solutions.

Lack of robust regulatory framework to hinder industry progress

Dearth of a streamlined regulatory framework and uniform guidelines may hamper the scope of molecular diagnostics market share. A uniform regulatory framework helps eliminate uncertainties for companies working toward the commercialization of novel drugs and therapies. However, the current challenges are causing delays in product development and market approval, forcing companies to increase their expenditure. The U.S. FDA also provides three pathways for the approval of molecular diagnostic technology based on the similarities between existing and new systems. This may limit patient access to modern and more sophisticated diagnostics technologies, negatively influencing overall industry dynamics.
