Thailand Clinical Laboratory Industry Has Evolved Over the Years and Has Become a Critical Solution Provider: Ken Research

Expanding healthcare spending by the Government, increasing healthcare spending by aging population and increasing public awareness led to the growth of the Clinical Laboratory Market in Thailand.

Thailand Clinical Laboratory Market Overview: The Clinical Laboratory Market in Thailand is currently at the growth stage and is a consolidated market. The market has been driven by growth in non-communicable disease and chronic diseases, increasing focus on preventive medicine, ageing population, increase in awareness levels, rising disposable income and preference for evidence based treatment. The Thailand Clinical Laboratory Market grew from 6.7% in 2017 to 12.3% in 2021 in terms of revenue generated, due to the growing demand for clinical laboratory services in the country.

Challenges Faced by Thailand Clinical Laboratory Market: In spite of the growing demand for diagnostic services, affordability remains a concern. Budget constraints from both public and private payers are pushing costs lower. The number of sample sales and test price are very competitive among both organized and unorganized businesses. Diagnostics facilities need to modify their technology frequently to maintain a competitive edge. However, these improvements not only require large construction expenditures but also raise maintenance expenses. This is essential, especially for smaller players with little resources. Lack of laboratory accountability for the services that they render, insufficient oversight of suppliers, consumables, supplies, and laboratory equipment in terms of price, commitments, and warranty support; are still very challenging issues.

Supportive Government Initiatives: Thailand’s reform places a heavy emphasis on improving a district health system that is pro-rural and pro-poor. To promote lab accreditation and restore consumer trust, the government has established national accreditation bodies such as the Thailand Laboratory Accreditation Program. The national accreditation program was established as a local alternative to make it affordable, feasible, scalable, sustainable, and effective. In 2008, Thailand’s Universal Coverage Scheme (UCS) was extended to include wider coverage. The UCS plan focuses on minorities and the poor and near-poor, with the aim of offering the most comprehensive coverage possible. It includes extensive outpatient and inpatient health care, as well as prevention and health promotion, in addition to basic hospital fees.
