Europe IVD Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The in-vitro diagnostics market size in the European region is predicted to grow from USD 16.79 billion in 2024 to USD 21.54 billion in 2029, registering a CAGR of 5.10% during the forecast period.

In Europe, the demand for IVD has been growing steadily for the last few years, and this trend will continue during the forecast period. Technological advancements in diagnostic techniques, increasing healthcare expenditure and growing awareness about early disease detection have been playing a significant role in the increasing demand for IVD in the European region. Innovation in diagnostic technologies has brought numerous improvements that range from molecular diagnostics and immunoassays to point-of-care testing devices. The presence of stringent regulatory standards and favorable reimbursement policies in Europe are a plus to the growth rate of the European IVD market. During the forecast period, the IVD market in Europe is anticipated to expand exponentially due to factors such as ongoing advancements in diagnostic technologies, increasing focus on personalized medicine, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and growing emphasis on preventive healthcare and early disease detection.

The growing prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases is demanding a surge in the number of diagnostics tests, which is one of the significant factors propelling the IVD market growth in Europe. There is a rising prevalence of chronic diseases in many people, and in vitro diagnostics are necessary to determine the medical condition of the person. The increasing number of patients suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and others are demanding early diagnosis to prevent critical conditions. Many infectious diseases need diagnostic tests for the correct treatment. Around 75% of the diagnoses are considered with the in vitro tests. Growing infectious diseases demand in vitro tests, accelerating the European IVD market growth. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the number of influenza cases reported between 2021 and 2022 is 4,690, higher than the previous year. According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2021, the prevalence of diabetes in European adults was 9.2%, which is projected to reach 9.8% by 2030. The increased number of patients demands diagnostic techniques such as immunodiagnostics, molecular diagnostics, and early detection, which drive the European in-vitro diagnostics market growth.

In vitro diagnostic techniques are used for the primary diagnosis of coronavirus, and they are also highly used during the Pandemic for testing COVID-19-positive cases. An increase in the number of new product launches and advanced technologies is accelerating the market growth. The rising advancements in technology are helping diagnostic instruments perform better. Many standard instruments, such as coagulation test systems, cell imaging, analysis systems, blood sugar monitoring systems, and PCR testing platforms, use advanced technology to increase multiple sample screening with rapid results. Launching advanced point-of-care testing kits for different symptoms boosts market growth, as these kits are simple to use and highly efficient.  The growing number of research and development activities by the key market players is estimated to create lucrative opportunities for the market over the forecast period. The possibility of outsourcing creates opportunities for key players in the European in-vitro diagnostics market. 

Strict government regulations and standards for approving diagnostic instruments and methods hinder market expansion. Low awareness regarding the benefits of in vitro diagnostics and infectious diseases also hampers market growth. Many procedures need to include reimbursement policies, which makes people consider diagnostic techniques due to their high cost.  The major challenge of the in vitro diagnostics market is that it cannot capture the inherent complexity of the organ systems. As the in vitro tests are done outside the body, they cannot provide information about the body's internal environment.

Impact of COVID-19 on the European IVD market:

The Pandemic impacted the supply chain of diagnostic equipment as Europe was a severely affected region. The increased adoption of these instruments during the Pandemic due to their capability to diagnose COVID symptoms boosted the market growth. According to the report by the UK government, 7.6 million flow device tests were performed in England in 2021. The market growth remained stable in Europe after the pandemic due to a decrease in COVID-19 confirmation cases and reduced diagnostic testing procedures. The new launches for COVID testing positively impacted the market in Europe. For instance, in July 2021, QuantuMDx Group Ltd. Launched Q-POC in Europe for precise and rapid results for the coronavirus in 30 minutes.
