Market Overview

The in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) market in Saudi Arabia is growing at a moderate CAGR of around 3.5%. Factors that are propelling the growth of this market are increasing the use of point-of-care diagnostics across healthcare facilities, and growing chronic diseases burden in the country.

Point-of-Care (POC) technologies refer to those diagnostic tests that are conducted near the site of patient care. The result of care is timely and allows for rapid recovery of the patient. These technologies have a major impact on diagnostic testing in Saudi Arabia. These hold the potential to significantly impact healthcare delivery and address the challenges of health disparities. Diabetes accounts for a major share of Saudi Arabia’s healthcare expenditure. POC tests make glucose testing easier and more accurate. Despite being the well-known and most-used POC diagnostics, glucometers are just one of the many POC diagnostics that are currently available commercially. Other commonly-used POC diagnostics include pregnancy testing kits, blood cholesterol testing kits, and urine analysis test strips.

Due to the ease of use and ability to provide instant results, combined with the ease of procurement, the use of POC diagnostics in Saudi Arabia is increasing rapidly. This, in turn, is promoting the growth of the IVD market in the country. POC technologies are influential market drivers for the IVD industry.
