Rising local participants will reshape this market

The IVD market in China presents diversified growth potential for different tiers of participants: domestic participants stand to gain from the growth momentum in the lower-end market, whereas foreign leading manufacturers dominate the high-end market. This research service analyzes the IVD market and provides forecasts and opportunities by understanding the market dynamics and trends. The market can be divided into segments such as clinical chemistry, immunoassay, molecular biology diagnostics, microbiology, coagulation, and hematology. The study covers the period 2007-2016.

Executive Summary

•The Chinese in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) market of $X billion in 2011 is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X percent to reach $X billion in 2016.
•Based on testing principles, the IVD market is segmented into eight, and dominated by four of them, namely, immunoassay, clinical chemistry, hematology, and molecular diagnostics. The four constituted Xpercent of the total market in 2011, standing at $X million.
•Market growth for the traditional segments—Immunoassays, clinical chemistry, hematology, coagulation, and microbiology—are related to the increasing test volume, rather than the higher testing price. The emerging segment is molecular diagnostics, which is experiencing strong growth rates due to its innovation technology. POCT (Point-of-Care-Testing) is at a nascent stage. Although some companies have entered these two segments, they still need time to promote the POCT products and regularize the segment itself. Unlike SMBG (Self-Monitoring of Blood-Glucose), POCT is expected to have stronger growth potential because of policy support.
•The government provides a favorable policy environment for the IVD industry in the form of keeping investment in the primary healthcare system, providing public hospital reforms, encouraging IVD-related technology innovation for local participants, and improving reimbursement policy.
•The IVD market in China presents diversified growth potential for different tiers of competitors: domestic participants gain from the growth momentum for the low-end market, whereas foreign leading manufacturers dominate the high-end market, which is expected to become the new emerging market along with ever-improving localized service to meet various demands.
•Foreign companies dominate the high-end market by leveraging their technical advantage to develop closed-end systems for their automatic analyzers. The mid-to-low-end market is crowded with local participants, thus leading to fierce competition.
•Leading local companies have successfully built their brand reputation and are strengthening their research and development (R&D) capabilities to enter the high-end market by developing substitution devices at a lower cost to replace imported devices in some of the price-sensitive, lower-end hospitals. Some of them are trying to replicate the business models of multinational corporations to develop closed-end automatic analyzers of their own.
•Overall, the substitution devices developed by local companies are the most important factor in increasing the IVD market size, as it improves the accessibility of lower-level hospitals to advanced IVD technologies, thus boosting their need to update IVD products.

Opportunities in Emerging Segments

Molecular Diagnostics
•Hepatitis, HIV, and HPV tests are expected to be the key growth drivers.
•Respiratory disease and sexually-transmitted disease testing generate the most revenue in the market.
•Opportunities are emerging in areas such as cancer testing and PCR blood bank.
•Chip-based tests and multiplexing tests are the topic of discussion in research.
•Fast molecular testing in microbiology is gaining focus.
End User
•The adoption level is low in hospitals of all sizes because of the high cost and low or no reimbursement.
•Low-throughput automated analyzers with minimal human interference can help penetrate the market better.

•Infectious disease testing is likely to become popular in the forecast period.
•Cardiac testing products are likely to become popular, as cardiac patient monitoring is very important in preventing a sudden onset of cardiac failure.
•Production standardization is needed.
•Immunochromotography-based tests are likely to dominate the market in the forecast period.
•Technology focused on enhancing the accuracy, sensitivity, and reliability of POCT testing could be the next trend.
End User
•Providing convenient monitoring and testing services in clinical centers in remote, rural areas would require robust POCT products.
•Rising disease prevention awareness among the Chinese is expected to boost demand for POCT products.
