A urinalysis is used in the diagnosis and management of various disorders such as kidney disease, urinary tract infections, and diabetes. It is the analysis of urine by chemical, physical, and microscopical means to check for the presence of drugs and disease-related entities, including biomolecules or other by-products, in it. The urinalysis includes checking the concentration, appearance, and content of urine. In urinalysis, abnormal results or estimations out of the expected range may indicate an illness or disease. If the urine test result is positive, it may point that kidneys are not functioning or filtering the blood in the manner as they should. It might also help in the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease, and detection of pregnancy and ovulation.
The urinalysis market has been segmented on the basis of product, test type, application, end user, and geography. Based on geography, the market is primarily segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, and South and Central America. The report offers insights and in-depth analysis of the urinalysis market, emphasizing parameters such as market trends, technological advancements, and market dynamics, along with competitive landscape analysis of the globally leading market players.

As per the study reported by a group of researchers at the American College of Physicians and Infectious Diseases Society of America in 2020, ~6 million people in the US visit physicians for the treatment of urinary tract infection (UTIs) every year. Women are at a higher risk of developing UTIs than men. According to a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health in 2019, patients with existing chronic conditions, such as diabetes mellitus (DM), are at a greater risk of acquiring UTIs. The demand for components required for urinalysis is rising due to the common occurrence of diabetes across the world, as the primary screening for diabetes involves urinalysis. As per the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), ~463 million adults (age 20–79 years) in the world were living with diabetes in 2019; this number is likely to rise to 700 million by 2045. According to the IDF, ~87.6 million adults of age 20–79 was living with diabetes in Southeast Asia in 2019, representing a regional prevalence of 8.8%, and ~56.7% of these diabetes cases were undiagnosed, this shows there is potential for market development of urinalysis. Moreover, according to a study published by the National Kidney Foundation in 2020, ~35.0% of the diabetic population above age 20 would develop chronic kidney diseases over the period. An ongoing surge in the prevalence of prostate and bladder cancer raises a strong therapeutic imperative for the implementation of highly effective diagnostics.
Thus, the escalating prevalence of UTIs, diabetes, and kidney diseases boosts urinalysis market growth.

COVID-19 has presented the most significant global health emergency till date. Lockdowns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic caused people to delay undergoing health checkups, thus affecting the number of tests being performed and sales of instruments, consumables, and reagents. The urinalysis market witnessed a shortfall at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis due to disruption in supply chain and demand due to the lockdown announced by most European countries. However, a resurgence in testing numbers is seen as countries gradually ease restrictions on movement.
Acquisitions, collaborations, partnerships, product launches, and expansions are commonly adopted strategies by companies to expand their footprint worldwide and meet the growing demand. The urinalysis market players have been chiefly adopting the strategy of product innovation to cater to the changing customer demands across the world, which also helps them maintain their brand name globally.
