Urinalysis Market Overview and Introduction
Urinalysis refers to clinical tests which are performed on the urine. Such tests assists in detecting and managing a broad range of disorders, namely kidney disease, urinary tract infections, and diabetes among others. The process of analysis involves examination of multiple parameters of the urine such as concentration, appearance and content. An abnormal result in urinal urinalysis tests indicates an illness or disease.
The global urinalysis market is driven by increasing incidences and prevalence of urinary tract infections (UTI) or other form of kidney disorders coupled with increasing geriatric population. Technological advancements, health care expenditure and availability of favorable government regulations are major factors driving the market. However, lack of infrastructural qualification among developing nations is likely to restrain the market to certain extent.
Urinalysis Market by Product Type and Test Type
The global market is segmented by product type, test type, application, end user and region. On the basis of product type, the urinalysis market is segmented into instruments and consumables. The segment of consumables is anticipated to account for the highest market share in 2018, owing to recurring purchase costs associated with disposable consumables. The test type segment can be segmented into sediment urinalysis, and biochemical urinalysis. Biochemical urinalysis segment is anticipated to be the major revenue generating segment, owing to adoption of new innovative technologies to improve the overall efficiency of several tests.
Urinalysis Market by Application and End User
On the basis of application, the market can be segmented into pregnancy tests and disease diagnostics. The segment of disease diagnostics is estimated to account for the largest share of the global urinalysis market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to development of novel tests and analysis studies for early diagnosis of several types of chronic diseases. Finally, on the basis of end user, the urinalysis market is segmented into hospitals and clinical laboratories, research laboratories and institutes, diagnostics laboratories and home care settings. The hospitals and clinical laboratories segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the urinalysis market. Increasing incidences and prevalence of chronic diseases and the improving healthcare infrastructure are some of the factors driving the growth of end-user segment.
