Endocrine Testing Market by Test
The endocrine tests are used to test the levels of Follicle stimulating hormone(FSH), Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), Thyroid Stimulating Hormone(TSH), Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), Prolactin, Progesterone, Insulin, Cortisol, Testosterone, Estradiol(E2), Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and others. The incidence of diabetes is increasing worldwide. This would require testing of insulin levels. Also, the cases of thyroid disorders are increasing which would further increase the demand for the tests.
Endocrine Testing Market by Diagnostic Technology
The endocrine tests are Immunoassay, Clinical Chemistry tests, tests utilizing Monoclonal and Polyclonal Antibody, and Tandem Mass Spectroscopy. Mass spectroscopy analysis is the most recent technology available. The sensitivity of the tests using mass spectroscopy is very high.
Endocrine Testing Market by end user
The endocrine tests are used in Hospitals, Physicians Offices, Health Care centers, Commercial Laboratories, etc. Hospitals are the major users for these tests with a large number of people visiting hospitals for testing.
Endocrine Testing Market by Geography
The endocrine testing market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and RoW. The market is dominated by North America followed by Europe, as there is greater awareness in these regions. However, the market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow as the incidences of endocrine disorders are rising in these regions.
The key players in this market are Quest Diagnostics, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Siemens Healthcare, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, bioMerieux, Agilent Technologies, Abbott Laboratories and others. In May 2012, Quest Diagnostics announced four new tests panels for congenital adrenal hyperplasis (CAH), an endocrine disorder. The tests promise to provide faster and high quality diagnosis of CAH.
