Need to ensure safety and health of women during pregnancy will drive the testing volume. Moreover, changes in hormone levels during pregnancy increases the risk of urinary tract infection in women that has a higher chances of kidney damage. Further, UTIs can cause serious pregnancy complications such as premature birth, high blood pressure, low birth weight and severe preeclampsia. Therefore, preference and recommendations from healthcare professionals for urine testing during pregnancy will boost the urinalysis market growth during the forthcoming years.

The urinalysis industry continued to witness significant revenue growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. The high risk of COVID-19 infection among patients with existing history of chronic kidney disease (CKD) led to increased demand for routine urinalysis during the period. Availability of home testing products allowed such patients to effectively manage disease diagnosis at home without visiting physician offices.

Further, as per the data by the European Kidney Health Alliance, nearly 58% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients were affected by Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) with an associated mortality rate of more than 30%. Thus, the increased risk of CKD among COVID-19 patients has also stimulated the demand for urinalysis in healthcare settings and contributed to the urinalysis market share.

Urinalysis is also known as urine test that uses a urine sample to examine visual, chemical and microscopic aspects of urine to assess patient health. Urinalysis tests are commonly used by healthcare providers to check or monitor specific health disorders, damage to the kidney as well as to diagnose urinary tract infections.

High risk of CKDs among geriatric population suffering through chronic conditions will impel the market statistics

The growing geriatric population in developed and developing countries is anticipated to boost the market demand. The increasing prevalence of diabetes, liver, and renal diseases with aging will significantly contribute to the demand for urine tests in diagnosis. Incidence of such chronic conditions among elderly population lead to higher frequency of prescriptions for tests like creatinine, albumin, glucose, ketones, and bilirubin among others.

According to the World Health Organization, the number of people aged 60 years and over is estimated to increase from 1 billion in 2020 to 1.4 billion by 2030. With increasing base of this age group, the industry is estimated to foresee tremendous growth. Additionally, higher risk of chronic kidney conditions with structural and functional changes in organs with aging will favour the testing volume.

Product developments allowing automation in urinalysis will offer unprecedented growth opportunities

Based on product, the urinalysis market is segmented into consumables and instruments. Consumables are further bifurcated into reagents, dipsticks, and disposables. Instruments is subclassified into biochemical urine analyzer and automated urine sediment analyzers. The urinalysis instruments market was valued at over USD 1,000 million revenue in 2021 and is expected to foresee significant growth from 2022 to 2028 due to the increasing preference by healthcare professionals for automated urine analyzers.

Product developments have improved the automation process in urinalysis allowing accurate test results in case of complicated and serious illness. Additionally, infrastructure development in facilities leading to increasing adoption such advanced instruments will strengthen the segment growth potential in the coming years.

Increasing risk of urinary tract infections (UTI) in women will strengthen the market outlook

Based on application, the urinalysis market is segmented into urinary tract infection, kidney diseases, pregnancy, diabetes, and others. The urinary tract infections (UTI) segment is anticipated to progress at a 5.2% CAGR through 2028 due to increasing incidence rate of urinary tract infections in developed and developing nations.

For instance, according to the National Kidney Foundation, the UTIs lead to approximately 10 million physician visits each year in the U.S. and are highly prevalent among women. Further, the prevalence of risk factors that possess high risk of UTI will contribute to the existing disease burden. Thus, growing availability and accessibility of diagnostic products across developed regions for early disease diagnosis will positively influence the segment demand.

Accuracy in diagnostic tests and availability of specialists in clinical laboratories will foster the industry landscape
