The global cholesterol testing services market is expected to reach USD 17.5 billion by 2021 from USD 11.9 billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. This market is segmented on the basis of type of customer and region. Based on type of customer, the market is segmented into physicians/providers and hospitals; employers, health plans, and Managed Care Organizations (MCOs); government agencies, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs); and patients. Based on region, the cholesterol testing services market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia, and the Rest of the World (RoW).

Factors such as increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases and obesity, physician preference of laboratory testing rather self-testing, growing awareness and adoption of preventive healthcare, government initiatives to improve the quality of testing, and rapid growth in the geriatric population are propelling the growth of this market. Moreover, emerging economies and patient-driven testing services are expected to offer high potential for growth during the forecast period. However, rapidly growing home/self-testing and emergence of noninvasive cholesterol testing methods are the major factors that may limit the growth of the market to a certain extent.

In 2016, North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the global cholesterol testing services market. In North America, the U.S. is a major market for cholesterol testing service providers. North America’s dominance in the market can be attributed to the increase in Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) waivers for certain diagnostic tests (including blood cholesterol), growing geriatric population, increasing efforts by ACOs for population health management and early disease intervention, and the presence of leading market players in the region.

However, Asia is projected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period. Factors such as high population, increased prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, and growing number of testing facilities in the Asian region are driving the growth of this market.
