The global capillary blood collection devices market size is valued at USD 1.13 billion in 2017. The global market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2018-2025. Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, growing availability of PoC diagnostics, and various advantages of capillary blood collection devices over its alternative are some of the major growth factors encouraging to drive the global capillary blood capillary blood collection devices market.
Detection of biomarker, blood gas detection, nucleic acid, leukocyte & metabolite count, and blood glucose, effect of vitamin K-antagonist, lactate, ferritin, and heavy metal ions analysis are commonly done using these samples. Consequently, with increase in adoption of rapid PoC diagnostics, usage of capillary blood collection devices is anticipated to increase in the near future.
Increase in incidences of infectious, chronic, and autoimmune diseases are few of the major factors that encourage the demand leading to market growth owing to rising number of blood tests globally. The technique of drawing blood through capillary devices has been among the most widely used for haemoglobin and glucose testing in hospitals and clinics. Minimally invasive nature and ease of usage make it ideal for testing and home care diagnosis, thus boosting the global capillary blood capillary blood collection devices market’s growth. The popularity of usage of this technique in conjugation with PoC diagnostics has turn out to be the preferred mode of testing in ambulatory and remote health settings.
The technique to draw blood through capillary devices is popularly used for pediatric patients as it is complicated to draw venous and blood from artery in infants. Drawing blood using capillary devices is favoured in many ICU settings as patients lose considerable quantity of blood during surgeries. Various other blood drawing techniques are comparatively invasive and might result in delay in the healing process or pose a risk of contamination. Ease of usage and effectiveness is another factor facilitating the use of these devices for home care diagnosis and testing, typically in case of diabetics.
Chronic diseases are global healthcare issues with over half of the adult population in the U.S. suffering from such diseases, which is recorded to contribute over 75% of the total healthcare cost in the nation. Thus, increasing number of chronic and infectious diseases create huge demand for diagnostic testing, thus encouraging growth of these collection devices.
