Clinical Laboratory Market Size to Reach USD 391.14 Billion in 2028- Reports and Data

Rise in cases of chronic and infectious diseases worldwide and increasing volumes of diagnostic tests are expected to propel market growth

The global clinical laboratory market size is expected to reach USD 391.14 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 6.2%, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Steady growth in market revenue is supported by rising prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases, rising geriatric population, surging need for early disease diagnosis, and growing demand for advanced molecular, pathological, and immunological testing. Technological advancements in clinical diagnostics, increasing volumes of clinical diagnostic tests, rising awareness about regular body profiling, and stringent government regulations for laboratory testing are other major factors responsible for the global clinical laboratory market growth. Increasing investments in the development of advanced clinical laboratory equipment and significantly rising volumes of COVID-19 tests due to the rapid spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus are further propelling market growth. 

A clinical laboratory is a medical facility where a wide array of tests are carried out on various specimens including bodily fluid samples such as DNA, blood, or urine samples using specific laboratory equipment. Clinical laboratory tests provide information about a patient’s health and are a vital part of disease diagnosis and treatment. These tests aid in monitoring therapeutic responses during the course of a medical condition. Moreover, most clinical decisions made at hospitals and other healthcare facilities are based on the results of these tests. The key functional areas of a clinical laboratory include clinical microbiology, DNA testing, hematology, reproductive biology testing, and clinical chemistry, among others.
