It is expected that top-tier companies will continue to dominate due to
their global reach and multi-segment participation. Further, as IVD
markets in N. America and Europe offer little growth opportunities for
the vast number of tests, the top tier has invested in molecular and
personalized medicine testing and also has reinforced international
connections. The report notes that while the names of the players
dominating molecular testing have not changed extensively in recent
years, their revenue growth rates have. High growth has shifted to
innovators, while leaders are seeing flatter revenues.
The report indicates that IVD veterans Becton Dickinson, Gen-Probe (now
part of Hologic), Abbott Diagnostics and Siemens (News - Alert) Healthcare hold their
own in a highly competitive environment, while newcomers Meridian
Biosciences and GenMark have made gains with user-friendly infectious
disease tests. Meanwhile Pharma specialist Novartis has bailed out of
the blood screening business to concentrate on other business units.
