Point-of-care Applications Held The Largest Size Of The Biosensors Market In 2016

POC applications can be segmented into glucose monitoring, cardiac markers, infectious diseases, coagulation monitoring, pregnancy and fertility testing, blood gas and electrolytes, tumor or cancers markers, urinalysis testing, and cholesterol tests, and others. Cardiac markers are the most dynamic POC applications and are expected to witness several innovations and investments over the next five years, owing to the increasing number of people suffering from cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and rising demand for instant diagnosis of these diseases. Glucose monitoring to hold the largest share of the biosensors market for point-of-care applications by 2022

Blood glucose monitoring plays a crucial role in the management of diabetes. Glucose biosensors provide real-time information on the changes in glucose concentration. The glucose biosensors technology helps individuals maintain normal blood glucose levels. The rising prevalence of diabetes worldwide, technological advancements in self-monitoring of blood glucose, and growing awareness about POC testing are the key factors boosting the demand for glucose monitoring biosensors. Among all the applications, glucose monitoring held the largest size of the biosensors in 2016. The increasing number of people suffering from diabetes among the urban population is boosting the demand for glucose monitoring biosensors.

According to MarketsandMarkets the industry in APAC is expected to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2022. The increasing number of people suffering from diabetes and government initiatives toward the improvement of the healthcare sector in the region are boosting the demand for glucose monitors, in which biosensors are used, in APAC.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
