Market Dynamics

According to the United Nations 2015 World Population Prospects Report, the number of people aged 60 years and above is expected to grow by 56% to reach 1.4 billion by 2050. Aging increases the risk of infections and chronic disorders such as arthritis, atherosclerosis, cancer, liver diseases, and diabetes. This makes the geriatric population a key target group for diagnostic tests. Increasing health consciousness and awareness among people for regular-health check-ups for identifying signs of any disease have also increased number of visits to laboratories. Also, diagnostic laboratories are launching multiple health packages for routine health check-ups and encouraging the general population to perform routine health check-up at least once a year. Such initiatives from the clinical test service providers is also fueling the demand for clinical laboratory services.

Rising susceptibility of geriatric population to chronic diseases is expected to drive growth of the market
