The global cholesterol testing services market size is expected to reach USD 21.8 billion by 2026, compared to an estimated USD 14.55 billion in 2021. It is showcasing a growth rate of 8.2% CAGR during the forecast period.
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found in every cell of our body. If you have too much cholesterol in your blood, it can combine with other elements in your blood to form plaque that sticks to the walls of the arteries. A complete cholesterol test is also referred to as a lipid panel or lipid profile. Your doctor will measure the amount of "good" and "bad" cholesterol and triglycerides, a type of fat in the blood.
High cholesterol levels lead to health hazards such as the acute risk of stroke and heart disease and cause many deaths. Cholesterol screening services enable the early detection of high-cholesterol-related problems to avoid complications and increase patient survival.
increase in the incidence of cardiovascular disease, a sedentary lifestyle, an increase in the geriatric population, which provides many patients, and government initiatives to improve health care delivery are expected to drive the global cholesterol testing services market growth.
The global cholesterol testing services market is further driven by the rising incidence of cardiovascular disease, doctors' preference for laboratory testing over self-testing, government initiatives to improve test quality, strokes, and other heart diseases, the rise in healthcare spending, government initiatives, the rapid growth of the geriatric population. A significant risk of stroke and heart disease, both of which cause a substantial number of deaths, are increased by high cholesterol levels. The expansion of the Cholesterol Testing Services Market is fuelled by discovering issues early to avoid complications, gradual awareness of the dangers of cholesterol and education about the importance of these tests, technological advancements in cholesterol laboratory testing services, and enhance the patient's chances of life. Because high cholesterol has no symptoms, comprehensive cholesterol testing is required. Total cholesterol, high-Density Lipoprotein (HDL), low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), and triglycerides are the four kinds of lipids measured in the blood. Measurements of blood cholesterol helps to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease.
Another disease associated with high cholesterol is obesity. The need for these tests will grow as the incidence of cholesterol-related illnesses rises, boosting the global laboratory cholesterol testing market. Cholesterol lab testing services provide for early diagnosis of issues, avoiding complications, and improving patients' chances of life. The market for cholesterol lab testing services is projected to expand as a result of this. Because of their increased focus on preventive care and early detection to avert major illness problems, the government agencies segment is anticipated to develop significantly in coming years. The major companies in the market collaborate with federal, state, and local government organizations to deliver high-quality diagnostic testing services worldwide. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults aged 40 to 59 have the highest total cholesterol. This is mostly due to a sedentary lifestyle, which has been linked to the development of several diseases, including obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. As a result, it is expected that there would be a greater awareness of the importance of routine cholesterol testing and treatment.
In addition to the restrictions presented by the development of non-invasive cholesterol testing techniques, the existence of home or self-test kits might limit expansion. Therefore, leading companies are concentrating on developing new and sophisticated monitoring devices to overcome the challenges of existing equipment, resulting in intense competition in the worldwide cholesterol testing services market.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global cholesterol testing services market:
The current pandemic of coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19), caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus. Patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD), hypertension, and overweight/obesity tend to have a more severe clinical course (COVID-19) when infected with the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that produces coronavirus illness-19. This risk rises when your arteries become blocked with too much bad cholesterol, leading them to constrict. Plaque is a kind of plaque that inhibits blood flow to and from your heart and other organs. High cholesterol has been related to an increased risk of developing various diseases. There's even some indication that elevated cholesterol levels cause higher mortality in some COVID-19 patients. People are becoming fatter, and their chances of developing cardiovascular illnesses are growing after the advent of the pandemic COVID-19. On the other hand, the government is spending billions on improving healthcare infrastructure and promoting a healthier lifestyle, which has been proven to be a market growth driver. By considering all factors, the market has had moderate growth during this pandemic.
