In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market Overview
The In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls market size is estimated to reach $1,432 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period 2021-2026. In-vitro diagnostic tests are conducted on collected blood tissue samples in order to detect various communicable and non-communicable diseases. Moreover, they can also be used to monitor a patient’s health, cure diseases, and also enable medical professionals to identify the most effective treatment procedure or therapy for the patient. IVQ Quality Controls are products used to evaluate the quality and accuracy of these tests. Key technologies used for IVD quality controls include molecular diagnostics, blood-based controls, immunochemistry, and clinical chemistry. The rapid growth of the global geriatric population is anticipated to drive the market for IVD testing and quality control products. However, the lack of stringent regulations regarding quality controls in low and middle-income countries acts as a major challenge for the In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Industry.

In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market Segment Analysis - By Technology
Based on Technology, the In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market is segmented into Immunochemistry, Clinical Chemistry, Molecular Diagnostics, Microbiology, Hematology, Coagulation & Hemostasis, and other technologies. The Immunochemistry segment is anticipated to have the largest share of the market in 2020 and is poised to dominate the market during the forecast period 2021-2026 owing to the surge in cases of cancer. Immunochemistry involves the use of antibodies to identify certain antigen markers in tissue or blood sample. It helps predict the prognosis of tumors, diagnose tumors with unknown origin and also predict the patient response towards therapeutic procedures. The molecular diagnostics segment is projected to grow the fastest at a CAGR of 6.3% owing to the global rise in the Covid-19 Pandemic and the resulting demand for Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests for diagnosis.
In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market Segment Analysis - By End User
The In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market based on End User can be further segmented into Hospitals, Clinical Laboratories, Academic and Research Institutes, and Others. The Hospitals segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2020. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rise in the number of admissions and consultation visits, the presence of more experienced healthcare professionals, and higher convenience for the patient. Hospitals provide services such as consulting, diagnostic testing, treatment, surgery, and therapy in a single location. The clinical laboratories segment is also anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period at a CAGR of 6.4% owing to the absence of a separate department for diagnosis in many hospitals in low and middle-income countries. Therefore, patients in the region may have to undergo IVD in these centers before the results can be shared with the medical professionals in the hospital.
In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market Segment Analysis - By Geography
The In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market based on Geography can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Rest of the World. The North American segment is projected to dominate the In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market during the forecast period 2021-2026 with a market share of 36% owing to the presence of highly developed healthcare infrastructure, growing geriatric population, rising cases of cancer, and high patient awareness regarding the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. Moreover, the growth in the private and public expenditure on R&D is leading to the introduction of more innovative technologies in the region, thereby promoting growth. The Asia Pacific region is predicted to register the fastest growth owing to the increase in communicable and non-communicable diseases and growth in public healthcare funding in major emerging economies like China and India.
In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market Drivers
Increase in Geriatric Population is Projected to Drive Market Growth
The rise in Covid-19 infections is Anticipated to Boost Product Demand
The covid-19 pandemic has resulted in at least 219 million infections and more than 4.55 million deaths worldwide. The emergence of new variants such as the delta variant has posed a significant challenge for vaccinations and treatment. This is boosting the demand for IVD diagnostics such as PCR for accurately determining if an individual is infected. This is driving the market for IVD diagnostics quality control as high accuracy is demanded from the testing kits. False positives or false negatives may result in the patient not getting adequate treatment or cause them to unknowingly spread the virus to other individuals.
In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) Quality Controls Market Challenges
The High Cost of IVD Quality Control Equipment is Anticipated to Hamper Market Growth
Absence of Stringent Regulations in Developing Regions is Projected to Limit Growth Opportunities
The absence of stringent regulations regarding diagnostic device quality and accuracy significantly decreases the demand for the IVD quality controls market in developing regions. Setting up a quality control system is expensive and the laboratory is also required to have dedicated personnel for the system. However, since the regulations are not stringent, most of the laboratories choose to avoid them altogether to save costs. For instance, in India, the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) provides accreditation to testing and calibration of clinical laboratories in the country. However, only around 202 labs across the country were NABL accredited for Covid-19 testing, of which only 15 were government laboratories.
