Infectious Disease Point of Care Testing - South America Analysis and Market Forecasts


With just under $700m in annual worldwide sales, the infectious disease point-of-care testing (POCT) market represents a major growth opportunity for in vitro diagnostics (IVD) companies looking to market products in this arena and address the need for faster, more accurate, and simpler diagnostic tests at the POC. The existing immunoassay-based infectious POC tests have not reached satisfactory performance levels to be comparable to lab-based tests for the adequate diagnosis of infections in low-prevalence settings. As such, physicians and lab technicians tend to perform lab tests to confirm the results they receive from current infectious POC tests. However, GlobalData expects that the entrance of true POC MDx platforms with integrated disposable devices within 5-10 years will become a major driver of growth for the adoption of POC infectious disease testing in developed markets. Nonetheless, in less established settings with high incidence of infectious diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), and malaria, rapid infectious disease POCT tests developed according to the ASSURED criteria (affordable, sensitive, specific and user-friendly, rapid and robust, equipment-free, delivered) may provide a means for sufficiently controlling these diseases.

This report provides insight into the adoption trends, market dynamics, competitive landscape, marketed and pipeline products, current and emerging players, as well as market outlooks in Brazil. The report identifies the unmet needs in the market while providing an understanding of physicians’ perceptions in using and evaluating the adoption of different types of POC devices.

The generation of research report is concerned by most clients when purchasing it. Following general steps are taken for generating reports.
1. Choose a topic.
2. Make skeleton catalogue.
3. Fill content. As for report content, there are two main information source, Primary and Secondary data collection. Secondary data collectionrefers to information searched from the Internet or data bought from database. Primary data collection refers to information concluded from telephone interview, face-to-face interview, expert’s interview, meeting etc.
4. Audit the report
5. Publish the report.

With regard to information cost, information searching costs the least, database support the second least, and telephone interview the third least. Face-face interview cost higher, in-depth interview much higher and expert interview the highest. A research may adopt all of these approaches, or just some of them.
In general, a good-quality research report needs 1-3 months to be finished. Time and method varies according to different Publishers. Thus, it’s difficult to define an exact procedure or process of making research report. Both time and cost vary. However, specialization has become a basic industry standard. Professional and dedicated products will be more and more popular.
