Executive Summary

Cardiac Markers Rapid Tests and Point of Care-South America Analysis and Market Forecasts


Point-of-care testing (POCT), also known as bedside testing, near-patient testing, or decentralized laboratory testing, is an emerging specialty within in vitro diagnostics (IVD). POCT is one of the most rapidly growing areas in IVD, both due to the drive to increase efficiency and therefore improve patient care, and as a result of significant technological advances. Developments in fluid handling, microchip technology, and improved manufacturing processes are improving sensitivity and enabling miniaturization of point-of-care (POC) diagnostic platforms.

In recent years, manufacturers have worked to overthrow the image of poor sensitivity and unreliable results previously associated with POCT. Despite several recalls linked to erroneous results, there has been a significant improvement in analytic technologies, which in some cases match the performance of central laboratory testing. These tests have the potential to improve outcomes in primary and acute care by optimizing healthcare delivery to support more patient-centered approaches, and allow for more rapid treatment of patients. Along with the emergence of promising new POC technologies, and pressures to reduce cost and improve the quality of healthcare delivered, GlobalData anticipates the cardiac marker POC market is poised for growth during the forecast period.

This report focuses on the POC diagnostics market in the South American market (Brazil). In this report, GlobalData evaluates the currently marketed POC products, identifies the unmet needs in each market, analyzes market dynamics, and provides an understanding of physicians' adoption trends for different types of POC products. In order to successfully take advantage of the growing POC diagnostics market, manufacturers are required to adopt strategies that address the current unmet needs, and to concentrate on demonstrating the clinical value of their products, to drive physician adoption.
