The laboratory proficiency testing market size was valued at USD 1.3 billion in 2020. The market is projected to expand at a CAGR of over 7.4 % during the forecast period, 2021 – 2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the increase in emphasis on diagnostic laboratories, laboratory proficiency testing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Proficiency testing ensures that the tests used to diagnose the novel coronavirus are correctly interpreted, processed, and administered, resulting in high precision and trust in the results.

Laboratory Proficiency Testing Market Key Takeaways

Proficiency testing is critical in all pandemic-affected areas. Various organizations are launching programs to help laboratories overcome accreditation barriers, thereby fueling the market. For example, in November 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) collaborated with the Department of Health (DOH) and government entities to provide training and ensure the establishment and certification of testing laboratories.

Foodborne disease outbreaks are expected to increase due to the rising ingestion of contaminated foods that contain bacteria, viruses, chemical substances, and parasites. According to the WHO, nearly 600 million people, or about one out of every 10 people, worldwide contract illnesses by consuming contaminated food, resulting in 420,000 deaths every year. More than 200 diseases, including diarrhea and cancer, can be caused by food pollutants.

Laboratory Proficiency Testing Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:

  • Increasing number of proficiency training programs introduced by key players is expected to boost the market.
  • Introduction of regulations to test potency and pollutants is expected to drive the market.
  • As the market for high-potency cannabis grows, laboratories that provide assays have sprung up to meet the demand is expected to boost market.

Laboratory Proficiency TestingMarket Segment Insights:

Immunochemistry segment accounted for key share
Based on industry scope, the global laboratory proficiency testing market is divided into clinical diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, microbiology, and others. The clinical diagnostics segment is further divided into clinical chemistry, immunochemistry, hematology, oncology, molecular diagnostics, and coagulation. The molecular diagnostics segment is bifurcated into PCR and others. The pharmaceuticals segment is segregated into biologics and others. The biologics segment is sub-segmented into vaccines, blood, and tissues. Similarly, the microbiology segment is classified as pathogen testing, sterility testing, endotoxin & pyrogen testing, growth promotion testing, and other microbial testing.

The immunochemistry segment accounts for a key share of the market. The clinical diagnostics segment accounted for the highest share, in terms of sales in 2020 due to advancements in complex diagnostic tests and high demand for early detection. Proficiency testing can help clinical diagnostics increase their performance, reproducibility, and accuracy. The immunochemistry segment held a significant share of the market in 2020 due to its high for testing allergies, autoimmune disorders, hormones, infectious diseases, serum electrophoresis, urine electrophoresis, and immunoglobulin. Quality control laboratories in the pharmaceutical industry play a critical role in monitoring the quality of drugs that are about to be launched in the market.

Laboratory Proficiency Testing Market By Industry Scope

Cell culture segment accounted for highest revenue share
On the basis of technology, the global laboratory proficiency testing market is divided into cell culture, spectrometry, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), chromatography, immunoassays, and others. The cell culture segment constituted a key share of the market in 2020. Its use in diagnosing the presence of infectious microorganisms in the blood is expected to drive the segment in the coming years. In the pharmaceutical industry, experiments are used to assess the efficacy of vaccines and cell culture-based products. Increase in use of cell culture experiments to gain microbial strain cultures has coincided with the increase in use of cell culture-based products such as monoclonal antibodies. Proficiency tests are available to assess laboratory efficiency and search for contaminants and impurities in cell cultures.

Hospital segment accounted for highest revenue share
