Market Overview

The IVD market in Germany is the one of the largest in Europe. It involves development and manufacture of biological and chemical reagents, test kits, automated machines, and devices that are used to analyze body fluids. Most of the sector comprises of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). According to the German Diagnostics Industry Association (VDGH), the IVD and reagent market turnover recorded in 2017 amounted to roughly EUR 2-3 billion. Companies generated the bulk of their turnover with the reagents (86.5% of turnover). Instruments and services totaled 13.5% of turnover. Innovative developments in the IVD field are currently driven by four major trends: point-of-care testing, automation, digitalization, and the concept of personalize medicine. Some other factors contributing to the growth of market include rapid increase in the chronic and infectious disease population, technological advances, rapidly aging population, and advent of point of care diagnostics. Some of the factors limiting the growth of the market are a lack of proper reimbursement policies and cumbersome regulatory framework.
