Europe Home Diagnostics Market: Growth in Pregnancy and Ovulation Predictor Test Kits Sales Encouraging

DUBLIN 2, Ireland, 18-Oct-2018 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — The European home diagnostics industry is realigning to foster integration with the broader customer-centric healthcare services. Growing consumer preference for home-based diagnostics, combined with innovation in online platforms, is creating sustained opportunities in this dynamic landscape. Riding on the coattails of these factors, the US$ 1.4 billion Europe home diagnostics market is likely to grow at 3.4% CAGR during the period 2018-2026.

Consumer Preference for Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring Devices Still Remains Unmet 

Glucose monitoring kits and devices remain the top-selling product, accounting for over 80% revenue share of the Europe home diagnostics market. The burgeoning demand for home-based glucose monitoring devices and kits can be attributed to growing prevalence of diabetes in Europe, which is increasing across all ages according to the WHO. The Fact.MR study opines that digital devices will remain the preferred choice over cassettes among European consumers.

The broader trends pertaining to non-invasive and painless diagnostics are driving innovation in glucose monitoring device development. According to the Fact.MR study, non-invasive glucose monitoring devices are likely to witness increasing penetration in Europe, albeit at a slow pace. The report also finds that broader innovation in non-invasive devices can drive healthcare consumerism across Europe.

The Fact.MR study remains optimistic on the future growth in Europe’s home diagnostics market, however, challenges prevail. “Self-testing, especially for people with type 1 diabetes, who require daily or frequent testing, remains a painful and inconvenient process. Over the decades, the innovation in glucose monitoring devices hasn’t really addressed the invasive part of the self-testing”, says Mr. Santosh Kumar, Senior Consultant at Fact.MR. “There is an urgent need for non-invasive glucose monitoring testing,” adds Mr. Kumar.

The Fact.MR study finds that home diagnostics manufacturers are aware of the evolving demand. Investment and research into developing minimally or non-invasive home diagnostics devices is gaining ground. “The realization that digital, and non-invasive devices are the future is dawning upon manufacturers. Market leaders, such as Siemens Healthcare and Abbott Technologies are leveraging wearable technologies and IoT to develop innovative products,” says Mr. Kumar.

Growth in Pregnancy and Ovulation Predictor Test Kits Sales Encouraging 

Although glucose monitoring devices and kits will account for the majority of sales, encouraging trends in other self-test kits continue to complement market growth. Pregnancy test kits and ovulation predictor test kits are likely to witness surging demand, as an increasing consumer base feels confident about self-testing. Gains are also encouraging, albeit miniscule, in other home diagnostics products, such as urinary tract infection kits and male infertility test kits.

UK Maintains its Numero Uno Position, Germany and France Remain Lucrative

The Europe home diagnostics market remains concentrated in the UK, Germany, and France. These three markets collectively account for a market share of nearly 60% revenue share of the Europe home diagnostics market. The Fact.MR study opines that these three markets will witness increasing proliferation of next-gen home diagnostics devices.

Fact.MR study on the home diagnostics market brings interesting insights to the fore. According to the report, UK remains Europe’s largest market for home diagnostics, with revenues to the tune of US$ 280 million in 2017. The study opines that UK will maintain its numero uno position throughout the course of the forecast period 2017-2026. Germany and France will follow suit, however, sales will grow at a sluggish pace in the former.

The report also finds that home diagnostics devices that use urine and blood for testing will continue to remain pervasive in the Europe home diagnostics market. Samples devices and kits that use semen and breath are expected to witness growth during the course of the forecast period.

“Today, the requirements of organizations are multi-pronged – from gaining a holistic customer view to agile data-to-execution operations, organizations need to invest in cognitive computing and advanced technologies to stay competitive,” says Shambhu Nath Jha, Senior Consultant at Fact.MR and co-author of the study.

“IBM Watson services have been positively disrupting and reforming operations across sectors, especially healthcare. From screening patient’s structured and unstructured data to regulatory requirements and medications, IBM Watson services are witnessing extensive adoption in the healthcare sector,” added Mr. Jha. The growing adoption of IBM Watson services in healthcare is further substantiated by Fact.MR’s findings that the sector currently accounts for nearly 21% revenue share, representing a market value worth US$ 318 Mn.

Improved Business Agility and Seamless Customer Service Identified as Key Advantages 

The Fact.MR survey further reveals that improvement in business agility is the most prominent motivation driving investment in IBM Watson services. Nearly 84% of respondents currently using IBM Watson services said that there was a marked improvement in business agility since the introduction of platform in their organization. An additional 82% said IBM Watson services helped their organizations in improving and transforming customer service.

“Customer service has often remained a key concern for organizations; despite the proliferation of advanced technologies and pervasiveness of smartphones, nearly 50% of customer support calls remain unresolved,” says Shambu Nath Jha. “The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) can mitigate this challenge, and offer seamless support for Tier 1 queries. The system can also effectively gauge the queries that require human intervention, and escalate those queries to a customer support executive if necessary,” adds Mr. Jha.

Effective decision-making, handling colossal structured and unstructured data, and sales assistance are among the other key advantages of using IBM Watson services, according to the Fact.MR survey. “Effective decision-making entails a deep understanding of the unique needs and requirements of customers. Today, businesses are hard-pressed to understand the unique characteristics of their customers, and effectively map their existing and upcoming products to meet the overt and covert needs. IBM Watson can provide sophisticated recommendations that can facilitate effective decision-making,” Mr. Jha added.

Fact.MR’s report on the global IBM Watson services market projects a surge in investments to mitigate cybersecurity risks. According to Fact.MR, a majority of organizations have some level of cybersecurity apparatus in place. However, as Mr. Jha concludes, “tackling the potent cybersecurity threats will require a comprehensive ecosystem, rather than a symbolic front-line defense.”
