In vitro diagnostics testing is an indispensable tool in the modern medical practice. IVD tests are conducted with the help of various medical devices for the diagnosis of a number of diseases. With evolution in biotechnology, there has been a drastic change in the type of tests conducted for diagnosing various diseases, thus helping physicians to diagnose and treat diseases promptly and effectively. The most important trend witnessed recently in the U.S. IVD industry is the trend of self-testing as opposed to patients visiting hospitals. This is a key factor driving the growth of point-of-care testing, as patients prefer self-testing to avoid hospital visits. IVD tests have a significant role in the prevention, monitoring, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. Common IVD tests include blood tests for glucose, tests for detection of electrolytes (calcium, sodium, and potassium), liver enzymes, and drug tests.

The U.S. IVD market is projected to reach USD 25.99 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2015 to 2020. The rising incidence of chronic and infectious diseases, rapidly aging population, growing preference for point-of-care testing and personalized medicine, implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), increasing demand for automated instruments, and automation in laboratories are key factors driving the IVD market in the U.S. In this report, the market is segmented by product & service, technology, application, end user, and region.

The U.S. IVD product & services market is broadly segmented into reagents, instruments, services, and data management system/software. The instruments market is further segmented into fully automated instruments, semi-automated instruments, and other instruments. The fully automated instruments segment accounted for the largest share of the U.S IVD instruments market in 2014. The increasing number and complexity of tests, coupled with a shortage in laboratory staff, is driving the greater adoption of fully automated instruments in laboratories.

On the basis of end user, the U.S. IVD market is segmented into hospital laboratories, clinical/independent laboratories, and others. In 2014, the hospital laboratories segment accounted for the largest share of the U.S. IVD market in the U.S. The high inpatient flow and ancillary outpatient flow in hospitals, growing prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases, and increasing number of accredited laboratories are key factors driving market growth in this end-user segment.

The major players in the U.S. IVD market are Roche Diagnostics Limited (Switzerland), Abbott Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Becton, Dickson and Company (U.S.), Johnson & Johnson (U.S.), Danaher Corporation (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Siemens Healthcare (Germany), Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Sysmex Corporation (Japan), QIAGEN N.V. (Netherlands), Alere Inc. (U.S.), Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics Inc. (U.S.), and bioM?rieux (France).
