The global laboratory proficiency testing market is projected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2028 from USD 1.2 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 7.4%. As proficiency testing is obligatory for laboratories operating in various industries subject to regulation by organizations like CLIA, CLSI, and APLAC, the proficiency testing market is poised for substantial growth in the forecast period. It serves as a fundamental prerequisite for achieving operational excellence and accreditation across multiple sectors, contributing significantly to the global expansion of the laboratory proficiency testing market. Also, the increasing number of laboratory accreditations, stringent safety and quality regulations for increasing focus on water testing, and food and pharmaceutical products are the other major factors driving market growth. However, the need for substantial capital investment to facilitate precise and highly sensitive testing is anticipated to act as a restraining factor for the growth of this market in the projected period.
