According to ASEAN Medical Diagnostics Market: Insights & Forecasts with Potential Impact of COVID-19 report, the ASEAN medical diagnostics market is anticipated to reach over US$14 billion by 2026, denoting a CAGR of 12.60% between 2022 and 2026.
The research revealed various factors contributing to this growth, including ageing population, increased stress levels, growing healthcare expenditure, expanding urbanisation, and a surge in western-type diseases. This, in turn, is creating various new trends within the health and laboratory sectors, such as an upsurge in medical tourism, the emergence of POC testing, growing awareness of personalised medicine, new specialised tests, and escalating shift towards preventive healthcare.
Tom Coleman, Exhibition Director, Informa Markets said: "With the unprecedented growth of healthcare and laboratory industries in Southeast Asia, the timely return of Medlab Asia and Asia Health, will showcase the latest innovations and technology driving the industry forward in the region, and providing the ideal platform for meeting colleagues and discussing the latest trends impacting their respective industries."
