Laboratory Proficiency Testing Market Introduction

Laboratory proficiency testing market is forecasted to value over USD 1 billion by 2027 end and register a CAGR of over 6.4% during the forecast period 2020-2027.

Stringent regulations imposed by regulatory authorities like FDA to ensure quality on drug and food-related products are driving the growth of the market. The increasing demand for testing water to check the level of contamination is also inflating the laboratory proficiency testing market size. In 2019, the FDA conducted tests of grocery products on shelves. The test was conducted to examine the greasy chemical that settles in the body. The chemical, polyfluoroalkyl substance, was present in chocolates. The testing of microorganisms and pathogens in food and beverages is expected to bolster the market.

The market is bifurcated into by industry, by technology, and by region. The branded segment of the pharmaceutical segment is expected to dominate the growth of the market. The strict regulations regarding the efficacy of drugs, drug development processes for prescription of novel medications are the factors increasing the demand of branded drug thus propelling the market.

The microbiology segment is also expected to witness significant growth owing to rapid demand for laboratory proficiency testing programs for microbiology labs. Microbiologists carry out tests for the examination and treatment of diseases. In order to ensure safe and effective research, this testing method is necessary which is resulting in the inflation of laboratory proficiency testing market size.

In terms of region, North America is expected to hold a major market share. Increasing awareness regarding the procurable of quality laboratory proficiency testing programs is expected to boost the presence of the market in the region. The presence of favorable regulations alongside the presence of prominent players is expected to increase the overall market size. The availability of skilled professionals in regions like Canada and U.S is also positively influencing the market growth.
