Increasing applications along with new technology launch, presence of top players holds North America in dominant position

In 2017, North America contributed maximum revenue share in the global medical biosensors market attributed to the rising technology advancement in the field of microelectronics and biotechnology. Increasing market penetration of electronic medical records, growing patient awareness levels, enhanced applications in the cardiac care and point of care segment is further going to spur revenue growth in the North America region.

Major external factors contributing to the growth include increasing R&D in the genomics segment, nanotechnology, increasing adoption of personalized technologically advanced products and expansion of miniaturized diagnostic equipment in developing economies is increasing significantly. Nevertheless, in low economic countries such as South Africa, China, India, Brazil, and others, the accessibility of advanced equipment and facilities is inadequate. Less investment in R&D, unwillingness toward the implementation of latest treatment models, slow rate of exploitation and low awareness are few factors restraining the growth of the market. Increasing development of disposable biosensors by small or medium sized manufacturers in the Asia Pacific region and shifting interest towards home care is gaining traction in the global market.
