The global D-dimer testing market size was USD 1.30 Bn in 2022 and is likely to reach USD 1.85 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 4.60% during 2023–2031. The market growth is attributed to the rising demand for advanced point-of-care testing, and increased incidence rate of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.
D-dimer, also known as fibrin degradation fragment, is a protein fragment that occurs in the bloodstream when fibrinolysis takes place for the breakdown of a blood clot formed when injured.
During the process of fibrinolysis, the clumps present in the blood get broken down; after completion of degradation, the number of clots remains in the blood known as D-dimers. Medical professionals used to carry out elevated d dimer testing by extracting blood samples by using needles to take specimens for further examination to identify the existence of serious blood clots.
D-dimer test is performed when symptoms of blood clotting disorder occurred such as leg pain & swelling, shortness of breathing, nasal congestion, chest pain, and rise in heartbeat, this test is used for diagnosis of various thrombotic disorders such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in which clot floats in a deep vein of lower legs followed by other organs of the body.
Pulmonary embolism (PE) is occurred due to obstruction of arteries in the respiratory system and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). As a result, some severe conditions involve the formation of blood clots to a large extent, which can cause organ failure and stroke, due to the obstruction of blood flow to the central nervous system.
The test utilizes monoclonal antibodies of latex particles incorporated in elevated D dimer that increase the molecular weight of the immunocomplexes of the test specimen. The changes observed in the turbidity of the specimen are examined by photometrical analyzers and turbidimetric analyzers.
The market report finds that the COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the growth of the global market. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is creating opportunities for the expansion of the D-dimers market, due to the rising demand of advance diagnostic tools and testing kits.
D Dimer Testing Market Dynamics
The global D-dimer testing market report has up-to-date insights that help in formulating a strategic roadmap about the estimated market scenario and performance during 2023 to 2031.
The increasing prevalence of pathophysiological conditions such as various cardiovascular disorders, acute pulmonary syndromes, arterial or venous thromboembolism, cardiac arrhythmias, and acute pancreatitis is a key driver for the rising demand for testing. Moreover, rising demand for advanced point-of-care testing due to lessening the time of treatment and reducing the time of patient stay in the hospital is projected to propel the market growth in the upcoming years. The rising number of geriatric populations who are exposed to severe health risks is expected to boost the market.
The presence of heterophilic antibodies prevents the accurate test results of D-dimer testing in the clinical intervention of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. This is projected to hinder the market growth in the upcoming years.
The development of aptamers, peptides that bind to a target receptor, lessens the use of antibodies in elevated D dimer testing. These aptamers are offering a higher shelf life of monoclonal antibodies, which can offer profitable opportunities for the market growth.
