The global laboratory proficiency testing market is projected to reach USD 1.4 billion by 2026 from USD 1.0 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 6.4%. With proficiency testing being a mandatory procedure to be undertaken by laboratories functioning in different industries which are under regulation by organizations such as the CLIA, APLAC, and CLSI, the market for proficiency testing is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. PT forms an essential precondition for operational excellence and accreditation in several industries. This is one of the major factors driving the growth of the laboratory proficiency testing market globally. Also, the increasing number of laboratory accreditations, stringent safety and quality regulations for food and pharmaceutical products and the increasing focus on water testing are the other major factors supporting market growth. However, the requirement of high capital investments for accurate and sensitive testing is expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
