Agreements and partnerships along with new product launches are the two most-preferred strategies followed by the key players. The industry giants adopted these strategies to enhance their product offerings, to increase their market shares, to meet customer needs, and to consolidate their market presence. In addition, companies such as Abbott focus on receiving various regional approvals to gain a competitive edge. Companies like Danaher Corporation, QIAGEN N.V., and Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. adopted mergers and acquisitions as their dominant strategy to keep pace with the industry.
Major strategic developments take place in the field of infectious disease testing by immunoassay running on automated platforms, which exhibits high-growth potential in the near future. To sustain their market positions, many of the dominant market players like Roche Diagnostics, Siemens Healthcare, Sysmex Corporation, and Abbott Laboratories have introduced several tests for infectious disease diagnosis due to the high-growth rate, large market size nature of this segment.
The usage of lateral flow immunoassay-based point-of-care (POC) tests has been on the rise for the diagnosis of various disease conditions like oncology, cardiology, diabetes, and pregnancy. This is due to their easy accessibility and availability, which drives the immunoassays market. In addition, biomarkers are also witnessing emerging trends in the market that uncover new growth opportunities for immunoassay companies. For example, in May 2013, QIAGEN N.V. signed a license agreement with Columbia University in New York on FGFR-TACC fusion genes, under which QIAGEN developed this biomarker to identify glioblastoma and other cancers. The company also entered into an exclusive licensing option with BC Cancer Agency, Canada for the production of the EZH2 Y641 mutation biomarker for several types of cancers.
The demand for sophisticated and non-invasive diagnostic techniques and increasing acceptance of personalized medicines are the emerging fields attracting companies to the immunoassays market.
