EUROPEAN MARKETS FOR CLINICAL LABORATORY PRODUCTS

487 Pages | 106 Exhibits | 2001 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2005 Product Family: Market Reports




OVERVIEW:
The European clinical laboratory products market is both highly competitive and overcrowded, with many competitors supplying similar products. Although the overcrowding has been alleviated somewhat by a spate of mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships, suppliers still face an increasingly challenging environment in which to do business.

Cost containment is the overriding determinant driving change in the industry, but other considerations that are playing important roles include the pressure to shorten test result turnaround times, which enable the physician to provide the patient with more rapid and effective treatment; the increasingly critical shortage of qualified laboratory technologists, which is driving expansion in the use of automation and the adoption of consolidated workstations; and pricing pressures, which are forcing companies to increase customer support and training in order to stay competitive.

Sales of clinical laboratory products in Europe reached $7.3 billion in 1999 and are expected to continue to grow throughout the forecast period covered by this report from Medtech Insight. Major topics in this report include analysis of test volumes, technologies, products, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in: clinical chemistry; coagulation; conventional microbiology; flow cytometry; hematology & cell analysis; histology & cytology; immunodiagnostics; immunohematology; molecular microbiology; point-of-care testing; therapeutic drug monitoring & drugs-of-abuse detection; and urinalysis.
