Global Sales of HDL Cholesterol Kits Surge in Line with Rising Demand for Pre-Analysis of CVDs, Finds FMI

Jun 20,2019 | Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals and Medical devices

The growth of the HDL cholesterol kits market can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of atherosclerosis due to high cholesterol level, which favours the demand for cholesterol testing. According to the latest research by FMI, the global HDL cholesterol kits market is expected to be valued at US$ 790 Mn by the end of 2029. The HDL cholesterol kits market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period 2019-2029.

The increasing incidence of obesity and hyperlipidaemia among people is boosting the need for cholesterol testing, which is driving the growth of the HDL cholesterol kits market. The prevalence of obesity has increased from 33.7% in 2007-2008 to 39.7% in 2015-2016 among adults in the U.S. The increasing prevalence of obesity also increases the risk of cardiovascular disorders, high blood pressure, and hyperlipidaemia. Moreover, the prevalence of hyperlipidaemia is high among the obese population. Nearly 60-70% of patients suffering from obesity have hyperlipidaemia. Other factors, such as growing awareness programs for cholesterol testing and growing cholesterol testing among diabetic patients, are also propelling the growth of the HDL cholesterol kits market.

Rise of ‘Regular Health Check’ Trend Uplifts Prospects in East Asia

Low awareness in middle- and low-income countries about cholesterol testing and other healthcare testing are also among the major factors that are expected to hamper the growth of the HDL cholesterol kits market. There is low awareness about diseases such as dyslipidaemia and hypercholesterolemia in middle-income countries and rural areas. Moreover, the chances of errors and inaccuracy in HDL cholesterol testing methods, such HDL cholesterol precipitating method, are among factors expected to restrain the growth of the HDL cholesterol kits market.

The North America HDL cholesterol kits market gain a maximum value share in 2018. However, the East Asia HDL cholesterol kits market expected to witness prominent growth owing to the higher demand for cholesterol testing in countries such as China and Japan. Developing countries, such as China and India, represent a significant growth rate in the HDL cholesterol kits market due to the growing adoption of regular healthcare testing. The Middle East & Africa HDL cholesterol kits market is expected to witness a sluggish growth rate as compared to other regions.
