Respiratory diagnostic is the process, performed by the healthcare professionals or care providers to diagnose or treat patient’s respiratory problems. This diagnostic can be performed by using different tests such as pulmonary function tests, chest x-rays, lung perfusion scans and other film studies, six-minute walk test, blood tests, ECG (EKG), echocardiogram and many others. Smoking, air pollution, and arrival of infectious viruses are leading causes of the respiratory and lung diseases. Thus to reduce the prevalence rate of various respiratory and lung diseases respiratory diagnostic products and techniques are widely used across the globe.
The North America respiratory diagnostic market has been seen tremendous growth from the past few years. The major growth factors such as growing prevalence and cases of respiratory diseases such as COPD, asthma, lung cancer, and many other respiratory infectious diseases, growing technological advancements in respiratory diagnostics devices, surge in the adoption of various preventive measures to reduce air pollution that may cause respiratory diseases, increasing concerns regarding novel COVID-19 pandemic, and continuing technological advancements in the field of advanced diagnostic imaging technique are accredited to the growth of the market in the NA region.
The study analyses North America respiratory diagnostics market based on product & service, test type, disease, end user and geography.
By product & service, instrument and devices segment is witnessing fastest growth. A growing requirement for most accurate, less intrusive and less stressful diagnostic test process form patients, increasing demand for user-friendly respiratory diagnosis devices by clinicians as well as patients, and growing production and introduction of lung function testing devices or pulmonary function testing instruments are major factors that anticipated to propel the growth of this segment in the forecast period.
By test type, imaging test segment held the largest market share in 2020 and is likely to continue its position in the coming years. A surge in the adoption of analytics and artificial intelligence in diagnostic imaging, growing demand for comfortable and painless testing techniques by the people, and continuous use of chest X-ray imaging tests because of its simple operation, popularity, quick results and cost effectiveness are some of the factors that attributed to the growth of imaging test segment.
By disease, asthma segment is expected to witness fast growth at a highest growth rate during the projection period. The factors such as an increasing demand to diagnose and treat asthma in its early stage, rising focus on to reduce the social and economic burden of the asthma disease, and rising partnership, collaboration and innovation by major market players to provides effective and advanced asthma diagnostic products are expected to contribute to the growth of the this segment.
By end user, hospital/clinical laboratories segment dominated the market in 2020 and is likely to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Increasing number of mergers and acquisitions of hospitals and hospital systems, surge in the adoption of advanced respiratory diagnostic products in the hospitals and laboratories, a surge in the demand for early diagnosis and intervention, and rising focus on the timely and accurate laboratory results to improve quality of the patient care are some of the key driving factors behind the growth of this segment.
