The global IVD market has shown consistent growth of 6.72 percent annually, a trend that is expected to continue until 2012. Point-Of-Care (POC), the largest segment, is estimated to grow into an US$18 billion market by 2012.

The growth is being driven by a shift in focus away from acute care and late stage interventions to earlier and minimally invasive treatments. In the drive to reduce time spent in hospital, more tests are being carried out in a variety of settings - hospital, ambulance, doctor’s office and even in the home. The growth is being facilitated by the development of innovative technologies such as lab-on-a-chip (LOAC).

Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another.

The world faces:

- The emergence of new or newly recognized pathogens, such as the viruses causing severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and avian influenza;
- The recurrence of well-characterized outbreak-prone diseases: cholera, dengue, influenza, poliomyelitis, measles, meningitis, shigellosis and yellow fever; and
- The accidental or deliberate release of biological agents (anthrax, prion diseases such as variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease - vCJD).
