Market Segmentation: –

Based on industry, the laboratory proficiency testing market is segmented into clinical diagnostics, microbiology, pharmaceuticals, food & animal feed, water, biologics, environmental, commercial beverages, cosmetics, cannabis/opioids, dietary supplements, and nutraceuticals. In 2022, the clinical diagnostics segment accounted for the largest share of the laboratory proficiency testing market. Factors such as the rising demand for early and accurate disease diagnosis, advancements in clinical diagnostic techniques, rising government initiatives to improve the quality and affordability of clinical diagnostic testing procedures, increasing incidence of target diseases,  and growing public-private investments as well as research funding & grants to develop innovative laboratory testing procedures, are driving the growth of the clinical diagnostics segment.

Based on technology, the global proficiency testing market is segmented by various technologies, including chromatography, spectrophotometry, immunoassays, PCR, cell culture, and other techniques. In 2022, the cell culture segment held the largest market share in the Laboratory Proficiency Testing market. However, it is anticipated that the chromatography segment will experience the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing use of chromatographic techniques in water, pharmaceutical, and food industries.

Regional Analysis:

The laboratory proficiency testing market is segmented into five primary regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2022, North America held the largest market share. However, it’s expected that the Asia Pacific (APAC) market will experience the most rapid growth throughout the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the rising demand for outsourcing analytical testing services in countries such as China, India, Japan, and Singapore. In addition, governments and regulatory bodies across APAC countries are tightening regulations to ensure the accuracy and reliability of testing and measurements. These factors are supporting the growth of the adoption of laboratory proficiency tests in the region.
