The major factors driving the growth of the Indian in-vitro diagnostics market are the high prevalence of chronic diseases, increasing use of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics, and rising awareness and acceptance of personalized medicine and companion diagnostics.

The increasing number of cases of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and others in the country is the key factor driving the market's growth. For instance, as per the ICMR 2021 Report, it was observed that the number of cancer patients in India was expected to rise from 26.7 million in 2021 to 29.8 million in 2025. Thus, the rising burden of cancer raises the need to detect cancer early for more effective and timely treatment, increasing the demand for in-vitro diagnostics, which is anticipated to boost the market's growth over the forecast period.

Similarly, as per 2022 statistics published by IDF, about 74.1 million people had diabetes in India in the base year, and this number was estimated to reach 92.9 million and 124.8 million by 2030 and 2045, respectively. Thus, the expected increase in the number of people who have diabetes will increase the demand for conducting in-vitro assays for detecting blood glucose. This is anticipated to propel the demand for effective in-vitro diagnostics over the forecast period.

Furthermore, emerging technological innovations in healthcare, such as biosensors, lab-on-a-chip, wearable devices, and POC diagnostics, are increasingly becoming an important part of the healthcare landscape. POC testing helps bring testing closer to the patients and obtain results quickly for the healthcare provider to expedite diagnoses and subsequent treatment. This is likely to increase the adoption of in-vitro diagnostics in India.

Moreover, rising company activities in developing in-vitro diagnostic products and increasing product launches in the country contribute to the market's growth. For instance, in September 2021, Mylab Discovery Solutions acquired the majority stake in Sanskritech, a developer of Swayam, a portable diagnostic and telemedicine point-of-care system that can be used to create a small lab anywhere. This acquisition helps the company to establish point of care (POC) testing systems at doctor offices, nursing homes, community health centers, and airports through lab partners that enable patients to get test results faster at a lower cost.

In addition, in August 2021, Mylab Discovery Solutions entered a technology partnership with Hemex Health to develop next-generation diagnostic solutions for point-of-care (POC) testing of coronavirus and other diseases. In this partnership, Mylab develops test assays and Hemex provides its Gazelle POC testing platform and expertise.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors, the studied market is expected to grow over the forecast period. However, stringent regulations and cumbersome reimbursement procedures will likely hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
