The demand for clinical laboratory tests is mostly driven by the growing prevalence of diabetes, tuberculosis, and other heart-related ailments. As per the statistics published by the International Diabetes Federation, in 2019, more than 463 million people were suffering from diabetes, and by 2045, it is projected to rise to 700 million, across the globe.

In recent years, demand for medical labs has risen slowly, simultaneously, the industry is undergoing challenges in the form of policy changes and the availability of skilled clinicians. U.S. government has changed the reimbursement policies of Medicare and implemented PAMA (the Protecting Access to Medicare Act, 2014), back in 2018. Henceforth, following this market-based rates would be considered for the reimbursement, which might result in a decline in prices reimbursed by the Medicare to the clinics.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The demand in the clinical laboratory has been spurred by a rising geriatric population and changing lifestyle, leading to health complications. As per the data published by the World Population Prospects, in 2019, approximately 1 in 11 people all over the globe were aged over 65 years and above. It is also being estimated that, by 2050, around 1 in 6 people would age 65 years or more. Clinical tests are mostly inclined towards age-related problems.

Moreover, consumption of unhealthy foodstuffs, lack of exercise, and subsequent rise in obese population led to the prevalence of several chronic diseases. The rising awareness among individuals about regular heath profiling among physicians is also expected to spur the market demand for clinical laboratory tests.
