Latin America IVD Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The IVD market size in Latin America is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2024 to 2029. The regional market size is forecasted to be worth USD 14.4 billion by 2029 from USD 10.81 billion in 2024.

In-vitro diagnostics can easily detect any disease from the samples taken from the patient, which is convenient and gives accurate results in less time.

The growing prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases across the Latin American region is propelling the Latin American IVD market growth. Cancer is the leading cause of death in the Latin American region. Therefore, early cancer detection is essential for receiving the best treatment and increasing the chances of survival for the patient. In vitro diagnostic is a medical device that helps diagnose infectious diseases through patients' samples. Many people have been suffering from infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi in recent years. The most recent example would be the cause of the pandemic, due to which many people suffered from this infectious disease named coronavirus. Some of the other infectious diseases, such as HIV, pneumonia, and tuberculosis, are also detected by the in-vitro diagnostic devices, resulting in the Latin American market growth.

The growing adoption of advanced rapid test kits is fuelling the market’s growth rate. Owing to the spread of the coronavirus disease and the increase in variants of COVID-19, key players are focused on developing different types of rapid test kits that can be done at home. Therefore, they developed the test kits with an easy testing process that needs samples like blood, urine, etc., from the body. Additionally, the use of Covid-19 rapid kit development has increased due to the re-start of the cases in recent days.

The rising adoption of point-of-care testing favors Latin American IVD market growth. Due to the increasing number of diabetes cases in the region, most people use glucose monitoring devices for immediate results. These devices can be used anywhere, like a hospital, clinic, or home. Additionally, point-of-care diagnostic devices are used to treat cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and temperature and to register the oxygen levels in the body.

In addition, the growing usage of personalized medicine is supporting the growth rate of the Latin American IVD market. In vitro diagnostics also helps identify the patient's primary problem and helps in giving personalized medicine and treatment. Personalized medicine helps in the fast cure and prevention of diseases.

Furthermore, the IVD market growth in Latin America is driven by the growing popularity of various diagnostics and treatment procedures across the region, increasing disposable income in urban areas, growing awareness of personalized medicine, the development of innovative IVD products in research centers with different techniques to improve healthcare services, changes in lifestyle and food habits, growing awareness towards an early diagnosis to have quality treatment procedures, adoption of automated devices in laboratories, and growing demand for point-of-care testing devices.

However, low awareness levels regarding the advantages associated with in-vitro diagnostics in the rural areas of the Latin American region are one of the major factors hampering the Latin American IVD market growth. Fluctuations in the productivity rate of the devices and equipment that require vast amounts for installation and maintenance where it is difficult for small-scale enterprises are key factors inhibiting market growth. Furthermore, a lack of standardization and frequent changes in economic strategies impede market growth in Latin America.  The high cost of in-vitro diagnostic instruments is the main reason for the slow regional market growth. Furthermore, the need for more skilled professionals to conduct the tests impedes market growth. In addition, strict rules for the approvals of the devices and unclear reimbursement scenarios also hampered the market growth.
