The United Kingdom In-vitro Diagnostics market was valued at USD 3,126.39 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 4984.98 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.81% during the forecast period.
The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic transformed the in vitro diagnostics market in the country, both an advancement perspective and awareness about it among the general public. It led to the high demand for in vitro diagnostics products for COVID-19 diagnosis and treatment.In the diagnosis and detection of COVID-19, in vitro diagnostics tests were majorly used even in the non-symptomatic patients in the United Kingdom. The two primary testing methods used in the detection of COVID-19 infection include the antibody test and the antigen test. These are types of in-vitro diagnostics tests. The launch of new and advanced products related to COVID-19 detection and diagnostics by the key market leaders along with some new companies further boosted the growth of the studied market of the in-vitro diagnostics market in the United Kingdom. For instance, in November 2020, Beckman Coulter, a company of Danaher Corporation, launched the SARS-CoV-2 Immunoglobulin M (IgM) assay in countries accepting the CE mark. Additionally, the launch of regulatory frameworks by the parliament related to the mandatory COVID-19 testing will further expand the growth opportunities in-vitro diagnostics market in the country. For instance, as per the news reports, to open its economy to the outer world, the United Kingdom government may launch free COVID-19 antibody tests, which deliver result in 20 minutes. The test is the finger prick test and developed by UK Rapid Test Consortium (UK-RTC) and was found to be 98.6% accurate in secret test trials.
The major factors fueling the market growth are the rising prevalence of chronic disease has increased the demand for early and effective diagnostic tests, an increasing use of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics and increasing awareness and acceptance of personalized medicine and companion diagnostics have also helped the market growth.
The rising prevalence of chronic diseases is a major factor driving the market growth. For instance, as per the July 2021 report of the British Heart Foundation, there were about 7.6 million people in the United Kingdom were living with heart and circulatory diseases, of which 4 million people were male, and 3.6 million were female. Also, the rising geriatric population of the country will have a positive outlook on the market, as it is more prone to diseases and other medical conditions. The Future of an Ageing Population report by the Government Office of Science estimated that by 2040, one in seven people of the country is projected to be aged over 75. Furthermore, diabetes is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the United Kingdom. As per the report of the Diabetes UK, published in February 2020, about, 3.9 million people in the United Kingdom were living with diagnosed diabetes in 2019, with 3.3 million people in the England region, and 90% of these people had type 2 diabetes.
The increasing investment in research and development, along with the launch of new and advanced products from key market leaders and government initiatives in the country, is expected to boost the growth of the market studied, during the forecast period. For instance, in May 2020, the United Kingom government signed a contract with Abbott Laboratories for the supply of laboratory-based IgG-antibody tests to the National Health Services in different parts of the country. Also, in March 2020, the United Kingdom government provided a funding of GBP 16 million to QuantuMDx for the development of a portable diagnostics system for SARS-CoV-2, and in July 2021, QuantuMDx announced the launch of a rapid polymerase chain reaction point-of-care diagnostic system, called Q-POC, for COVID-19.
However, stringent regulatory frameworks in the country is expected to impede the growth of the in-vitro diagnostics market in the United Kingdom.

Key Market Trends
Infectious Diseases Segment Holds the Major Share During the Forecast Period
By Application, the infectious diseases segment is expected to hold a significant market share. The infectious diseases include HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, still posing a significant burden in the United Kingdom. Also, the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic positively impacted the segment’s growth. According to Public Health England Hepatitis C in the United Kingdom 2020, an estimated 118,000 people were chronically infected with hepatitis C (HCV) with many of them belonging to marginalized and underserved groups in society.
Moreover growing awareness regarding the early diagnosis and treatment, especially for infectious diseases in the country, is expected to contribute to market growth over the period. TB Alert is the United Kingdom’s national tuberculosis charity raising public and professional awareness about TB. TB Alert’s work in the United Kingdom focuses on making sure people with TB are diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible. Such initiatives in the country boosted diagnostics of the diseases, boosting the segment’s growth.
Hence, owing to the rising burden of infectious diseases, and the COVID-19 pandemic, along with the expansion of the international market, players are driving the market growth for in-vitro diagnostics for infectious diseases in the United Kingdom
