Comprehensive Coverage of a High Interest Industry
This year, Kalorama has published its eighth edition of this informative volume based on the market events of 2011. The report is over 1400 pages, reflecting the dramatic change in IVD. New entrants, net technologies have entered the stage and all important events are cataloged in this report. The idea behind Kalorama’s unique report is that the entire market can be captured in one volume and business planners avoid multiple purchases. Published every two years, this volume includes coverage of the most important aspects of all of the major segments of clinical lab testing, including:
- Point of Care (POC), (Professional and Self-Testing)
- Histology and Cytology (Pap, ISH, IHC, traditional non-pap, HPV)
- Core Lab (General Chemistries, Workstations, Analyzers)
- Immunoassays (Blood Gases, Urinalysis, Critical Care)
- Molecular Assays (Infectious Disease, Blood Screening, Inherited Diseases, Oncology, Pharmacodiagnostics, Tissue Typing, Prenatal)
- Coagulation (Lab-Based, POC, Genetic Markers)
- Microbiology and Virology
- Blood Banking (Grouping, Immunoassay Screens, NAT Screens)
Market sizes, forecasts and shares are provided, as well as a geographic breakdown of the segments, where possible. Changes in technology development, regulatory and reimbursement issues, clinical care, and business environments are discussed. Current market numbers are presented for 2011, with projections given through 2016.

A Global Report
From the first edition, this report was designed as a global resource in order to give market-watchers a true picture of the industry. IVD is a worldwide business. While the US is a large healthcare market, much of the dynamism, the growth, and also competition is occurring in other areas. Many of the most interesting opportunities for companies are occurring in emerging markets. As part of its coverage, the report breaks down the entire IVD market for the following regions.
- North America
- Europe (EU countries, incl. IVD market sizes by country)
- Eastern Europe
- South America
- Asia (Japan, China and India)
- Rest of World
A number of totally disparate phenomena have come together to change the IVD industry. Human genome research is finding links between a person’s genome and several lifestyle situations such as nutrition, dieting, skin conditions and other essentially non-medical conditions. This has attracted consumer product companies such as Proctor & Gamble and Nestlé to develop products and services based on IVD technologies. Decreases in life science grants has encouraged companies active in this space to migrate their technologies for clinical applications.
The result is the entry of companies such as Caliper Life Sciences, Illumina, Affymetrix and Life Technologies to the diagnostics market with products and test services. Miniaturization of traditional immunoassay and molecular test technologies has finally matured to the point where they may be ready for scale-up and then commercialization into products. Here electronics companies such as Sony, Samsung, Dell Computers and Intel Corp. have invested in clinical diagnostics ventures. These exciting developments join expansion into new market segments by companies already involved in the IVD industry.
In 2010 and 2011, there were at least 74 acquisitions and some 36 distribution agreements. And this is only a small portion of what is really happening. There are many more deals that have not been announced. The goal is to build better tests and stronger companies. The future of the industry lies in the development of more sensitive, faster, user-friendly, IT capable devices for a host of new protein and molecular markers.
In this eighth edition of The Worldwide Market for In Vitro Diagnostic Tests Kalorama Information addresses all of the key issues affecting the diagnostic industry in 2012 and how competitors are faring. Among the topics tackled in this report:
