The GCC in-vitro diagnostic devices market reached a value of US$ 1,233 Million in 2020. In-vitro diagnostics (IVD) refer to the clinical tests conducted on different bodily samples, such as urine, tissue and blood, to detect diseases and infections. These tests are also employed to monitor the health conditions of patients undergoing different treatments and the effectiveness of therapeutic procedures. Various devices can be used individually or in combination with each other for in-vitro diagnosis, including specimen receptacles, calibrators, reagents and control materials. In the GCC countries, IVD devices have gained traction on account of the aging population, the expanding healthcare sector and the establishment of standalone centers, independent diagnostics chains and academic institutes.
The easy access to better diagnostics and healthcare facilities represents the primary factor impelling the growth of the market in the GCC region. This is facilitated by the increasing insurance penetration rate under the Mandatory Health Insurance (MHI) schemes in the GCC countries. Besides this, a large portion of the deaths in the GCC countries is caused due to chronic diseases that are generally associated with lifestyle factors, including tobacco consumption, unhealthy diets and sedentary schedules. Consequently, the growing health consciousness among consumers has led to a significant rise in the number of people seeking diagnostic services at regular intervals to avoid these conditions. Additionally, individuals have increased their medical health spending due to inflating disposable incomes, which has further influenced the market growth. Moreover, the governments of several GCC countries have developed various health awareness programs and strategies. They have also shifted their focus toward promoting specialized care and services and are increasing investments in the purchase of devices used in medical examinations. Other factors, such as the rising number of expatriates and growing investments in healthcare infrastructure, are further driving the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the GCC in-vitro diagnostic devices market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
