1.1 Definition and scope of study
The diagnosis in vitro (in English, in-vitro diagnostic or IVD) includes all techniques, apparatus or devices used on human or animal tissue samples or biological fluids for the purpose of diagnosing disease in medical laboratories. Therefore, the in-vitro diagnostics is different from in-vivo diagnosis, which is performed directly on living organisms, and not on samples from them. In particular, the in-vitro diagnostic market can be segmented according to product (instruments, reagents, and services), technology (immunoassay, hematology, clinical chemistry and so on), application (infectious disease, oncology, cardiology, etc.), end-use outlook (hospitals, laboratories, home care, and others), and regional outlook.
The global in-vitro diagnostic market was valued at $83.4 billion in 2020, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during the period from 2021 and 2027.
The Italian market for in-vitro diagnostics is made up of several medium enterprises which are facing some difficulties in the application of a new regulation issued by the European Union authorities. According to such upgrade, the market will also include, starting from 2022, all the products related to microscopic, and which are considered to be relevant especially for the biological field. However, the Italian sector, made up for the 90% of SMEs, represents the 15% of the total estimated turnover for the enlarged EU region.
Naturally, the pressure on healthcare budgets and the increasing centralization of public purchasing processes (more than 70% of the total) produces uncertainties and complexities for local producers. But, on the other hand, in-vitro diagnostics is the absolute protagonist as far as innovation in the healthcare sector is concerned. In fact, 60% of the development activities in this sector are related to IVD, and the increased demand comes especially from clinicians who, faced with new treatment options, aim to increasingly personalize therapies, and from health authorities working to control rising spending by better identifying patients who will respond optimally to treatment.
