At 7.4% CAGR, the Middle East & Africa Diagnostic Labs Market is speculated to be worth US$ 17.43 billion by 2028, says Business Market Insights           

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the Middle East & Africa diagnostic labs market was valued at US$ 11.39 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 17.43 billion by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 7.4% from 2022 to 2028. Increase prevalence of chronic diseases and increasing use of point-of-care diagnostics are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.                  

Point-of-care testing (POCT) has become critical to patient-centric healthcare due to the rapid diagnostic results required for accurate and faster treatment decisions. A shift from centralized point-of-care testing to decentralized testing for chronic and infectious patients has resulted in convenient patient access to these diagnostics. The current trend in Point-of-Care Diagnostics (POCD) is strongly tipping toward mobile healthcare (mH) smart devices, which could revolutionize personalized healthcare monitoring and management, paving the way for next-generation POCT. POCT can significantly improve infectious disease management, particularly in developing countries where access to timely medical care is challenging and healthcare infrastructure is outdated and sparse. In addition, technological developments in diagnostic kits have resulted in fewer manual errors, thus, becoming a prominent driver of the diagnostic labs market. The demand for high-quality point-of-care diagnostic kits is increasing rapidly with the rising prevalence of acute and chronic diseases worldwide. For example, according to the Journal of Hepatology report, about 257 to 291 billion people were chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV) in 2020 and were at risk of developing cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The extent of cirrhosis due to HBV varies across the region. Regionally, HBV is associated with one-third of deaths from HCC. Considering the above statistics, the demand for diagnostic products among patients is anticipated to increase in the coming years. The high prevalence of HIV is expected to boost the demand for point-of-care diagnostics and further accelerate the growth of the diagnostic labs market.
