North America is estimated to continue its dominance in the diagnostic labs market during 2022–2028. The region is anticipated to witness substantial demand for diagnostic labs over the forecast period, owing to the increasing adoption of technological advancements and rising research and development activities in this region. Improved healthcare infrastructure and appropriate reimbursement policies also support the North America diagnostic labs market. The US is expected to hold the largest market share in the North American market from 2022 to 2028. The market is expected to grow in the coming years owing to the increasing adoption of technological advancements and rising emphasis on improving treatment outcomes. The US diagnostic labs serve as the foundation for millions of patients' early diagnosis, prevention, and personalized care, accelerating demand at a large scale. For example, early diagnosis, prevention, and personalized care in diagnostic labs in the US involve routine blood tests of patients and ground-breaking genetic and molecular diagnostics. Diagnostic laboratories play a vital role in improving patient outcomes and quality of life delivery of better healthcare value to the healthcare system, according to the American Clinical Laboratory Association (ACLA) report. Additionally, diagnostic laboratory services comprise only 2.3% of US healthcare expenditure and 2% of medicare expenditure. Therefore, diagnostic laboratories are an integral part of the US healthcare system and the patient it services. Moreover, nearly 25% of US patient care quality indicators for adults are included in laboratory tests. Quality indicators are standardized, evidence-based measures of healthcare quality that can be used readily by hospitals serving inpatient administrative data for tracking and measuring clinical performance and outcomes. Such quality indicators play a vital role in ensuring high-quality, cost-effective clinical care by informing laboratory medicine professionals to obtain objective scientific data and deliver an interpretation of results of US adults. Such factors mentioned above are driving the growth of the diagnostic labs market.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: Diagnostic laboratories play an important role in reducing the widespread impact of certain diseases. The experts in the pathology labs are skilled enough to get into the details of the underlying problems. As diagnostic chains and insurance coverage expand, clinical laboratory tests are becoming more common. This is due to the increasing demands for the early detection of diseases and the earliest possible search for causes to receive appropriate therapy. Due to an increased burden of COVID-19 testing or a drop in demand for other types of diagnostic tests, several laboratories have stopped performing other diagnostic procedures.
