Market Report Description

The Global Laboratory Developed Tests Market size is expected to reach $20.3 billion by 2031, rising at a market growth of 6.9% CAGR during the forecast period.

LDTs encompass a wide range of genetic tests designed to diagnose various types of inherited diseases, including single-gene disorders, chromosomal abnormalities, mitochondrial disorders, and complex genetic conditions. Consequently, the genetic disorders/ inherited disease segment  would acquire nearly 10% of the total market share by 2031. These tests can identify disease-causing mutations in genes associated with conditions such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, inherited cancers, and rare genetic syndromes.

As healthcare expenditure rises, there is often a corresponding increase in demand for advanced diagnostic tests. In addition, with greater investment in healthcare, there’s usually more funding available for research and development of new diagnostic technologies. Hence, increasing healthcare expenditure is driving the growth of the market. Additionally, POCT enables rapid testing and decision-making at or near the point of patient care, leading to quicker diagnosis and treatment initiation. Moreover, POCT facilitates rapid and on-demand testing, which aligns with personalized medicine principles. Hence, the expansion of point-of-care testing drives the market’s growth. 

The pandemic disrupted global supply chains, affecting the availability of reagents, consumables, and equipment necessary for LDT development and testing. Laboratories faced challenges in sourcing essential materials, leading to test development and implementation delays. However, the pandemic accelerated the development and deployment of COVID-19 tests, including LDTs, to meet the urgent need for diagnostic testing. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic had a moderate impact on the market. 

However, Multimodal testing often involves integrating multiple testing modalities, such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and imaging, to provide comprehensive diagnostic information. Furthermore, multimodal testing generates large volumes of heterogeneous data from multiple sources, including genomic sequences, protein expression profiles, metabolic pathways, and imaging scans. Therefore, the complexity of multimodal testing is hampering the market’s growth.
