Esoteric Testing Market

Quest Diagnostics (US) and LABCORP (US) are Leading Players in the Esoteric Testing Market

The global esoteric testing market is valued at an estimated USD 32.2 billion in 2024 and is projected to reach USD 48.3 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. Growth in the esoteric testing market is primarily driven by the growing geriatric population and the increasing prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases, genetic analysis, personalized medicine, and the increase in drug and alcohol abuse and stringent laws mandating drug and alcohol testing. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), as of August 2023, 94.9% of adults aged 60 and older have at least one chronic disease and infection, while 78.7% have two or more. Additionally, obesity, which affects 42% of those 60 and older, can raise your chance of developing some malignancies, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Due to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases in this population segment, the volume of esoteric tests performed has increased.

The esoteric testing market is highly fragmented, with top companies holding considerable market shares. The top three players in this market include Laboratory Corporation of America (Labcorp) (US), Quest Diagnostics (US), H.U. Group Holdings (Japan). Companies undertake organic and inorganic growth strategies, namely service launches, expansions, agreements, and acquisitions/collaborations to increase their offerings, address customer requirements, augment profitability, and strengthen their presence in the global market.
