Point of care molecular testing enables physicians to improve the standard of care by combining quick diagnosis with treatment decision in the first visit by the patient to have the test results. This is critical in detecting infectious agents, in determining a patient's ability to metabolize a drug or drug class, and in detecting minimal residual disease.

Point of care molecular diagnostics has improved the standard of care owing to quick analysis and low cost per test. Adoption and miniaturization of current technology has also escalated its demand, thus augmenting the market growth in the coming years. Moreover, rising funding from government organizations and private firms for research and development activities will boost the market potential during the forecast timeframe.

High demand for PCR and RT PCR kits during COVID-19 pandemic will stimulate the point of care molecular diagnostics market expansion

COVID-19 has affected millions of people resulting into high infectivity and mortality rate. Quick diagnosis of COVID-19 is essential to control the spread of infectious disease. Point of care molecular diagnostics has played a vital role during pandemic from collecting samples at the right time and from the exact anatomical site that is crucial for proper diagnosis. For instance, China formulated RT-PCR as a primary diagnostic procedure for detecting SARS-CoV-2. Various major market players are collaborating with government organizations to develop products that have a potential to lower the burden of diagnosis on the primary diagnostic techniques like RT-PCR. However, concerns associated long product development time and complex regulatory process can moderately affect the industry growth during the forecast timeline.

Improved results and faster outcomes for better treatment through polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology will strengthen the segment growth

PCR segment dominated more than 58% of the market share in 2020 led by the expansion of its application and increased precision and accuracy. In addition, RT-PCR and DNA/RNA purification are observing high growth due to their benefits such as low reagent consumption, real-time process monitoring, automation of workflow, and greater precision and reproducibility. Thus, rising occurrence of genetic disorders and infectious diseases coupled with increasing public-private investments, grants and funds for PCR-based research will further support the business growth.

Rising demand for novel products regarding early and cost-effective detection of infectious diseases will influence the product demand
