Middle East and Africa IVD Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The in-vitro diagnostics market (IVD) size in the Middle East and Africa was valued at USD 7.88 billion in 2023. The MEA market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.17% from 2024 to 2029 and be worth USD 11.29 billion by 2029 from USD 8.37 billion in 2024.

The growing population suffering from chronic diseases and the rising aging population in the Middle East and African countries are promoting the need for in-vitro diagnostics and resulting in the IVD market growth in the Middle East and Africa. Cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and chronic respiratory diseases are the most common chronic diseases in the Middle East and Africa. For instance, an estimated 30 million people in Middle East Africa have diabetes. In addition, factors such as unhealthy diet, smoking, drinking, and physical inactivity could result in a diagnosis of one or more chronic diseases. In-vitro diagnosis helps detect early warning signs and risk factors related to chronic diseases, which helps prevent or reduce the diseases quickly.

Growing preference for early disease diagnosis from the public and increasing efforts by the governments favoring IVD usage further accelerate the market’s growth rate. The governments of the Middle East and African countries are conducting several awareness programs to promote IVD test usage regularly. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of technological advancements to manufacture advanced in-vitro diagnostic devices is anticipated to fuel the IVD market growth in the Middle East and Africa. In addition, the increasing number of partnerships and agreements between the market participants to bring more efficient products to the marketplace and to maximize their presence in the regional market are further propelling the market growth. For instance, Audere partnered with Medical Diagnostech to develop lateral flow rapid diagnostic test kits in 2022. The increasing adoption of point-of-care devices for IVD testing supports the IVD market in this region. This is because point-of-care testing gives results quickly. Hence, the adoption of POC testing is increasing in the Middle East and Africa, and the IVD market is favoring it in this region.

However, factors such as low awareness levels among people regarding IVD, lack of reimbursement schemes by the government in undeveloped countries, and strict government regulations in approving IVD products hamper the IVD market growth in the Middle East and Africa. In addition, frequent economic strategy changes and the lack of skilled people to monitor the systems effectively due to fewer training programs impede market growth.
