ESR analyzer is a common hematological tester that is mainly used to detect the non-specific inflammation that is caused by infection, blood diseases, diabetes, and collagen vascular diseases. ESR analyzers are used to screen patients with fevers of undermined origin, muscle pain, and arthritides. These analyzers are used in hospitals to measure the sedimentation rate of erythrocytes for accurate and reliable reading.
Increasing cases of infection-related diseases and blood diseases in the recent years are among factors boosting the ESR analyzer market. New advanced automated ESR analyzers provide accurate testing results in a few seconds by using blood samples of 100uL, which is ideal for the geriatric and pediatric population.
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate can be measured by two methods: Wintrobe’s and Westergren’s. The Wintrobe’s method is more complex as compared to Westergren’s method, and nowadays, manufacturers are focusing on manufacturing ESR analyzers that suit the Westergren’s method. Newly added features, such as compact sizing, handheld barcode scanners for patient identification, rapid results, and closed tube sample testing, makes these analyzers user-friendly.
ESR Analyzer Market: Drivers and Restraints
Technological advancements in ESR and improved healthcare facilities are contributing to the growth of the market
The adoption of advanced semi-automatic and automatic ESR analyzers in the healthcare industry in the recent years are among the prime factors driving the global ESR analyzer market. The shifting preference of doctors from manual ESR analyzers to automatic ESR analyzers is also affecting the overall ESR analyzer market. Automated ESR analyzers have the ability to enhance the workflow and turnaround time. On the other hand, the requirement of lesser workforce and timing is ultimately promoting the growth of the ESR analyzer market.
Another factor that propels the demand of ESR analyzers is improving healthcare facilities across the globe. Advanced healthcare facilities are creating opportunities for manufacturers to capture a significant share of the ESR analyzer market in terms of revenue. Various governments across the globe are heavily investing in the healthcare industry. The rapid adoption of advanced healthcare testing equipment in hospitals is contributing to the growth of the ESR analyzer market. The increasing usage of these analyzers in hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, and academic institutions is also fuelling the growth of the ESR analyzer market.
On the other hand, the high prices of automated ESR analyzers is one of the factors restraining the growth of the ESR analyzer market.
