India diagnostic labs market stood at USD12319.32 million in FY2021 and is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 12.25% during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the growing population in the country, which is susceptible to various diseases, especially the geriatric population. Additionally, growing healthcare awareness among the population related to early disease diagnosis and treatment is expected to fuel the market growth over the next few years. Besides, various diagnostic chains and hospitals have started offering special discounts and packages for getting different kinds of diagnostics test done. These offers increase on occasions such as women’s day, AIDS day, breast cancer awareness week, among others. This in turn is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth. Furthermore, the emergence of corporates and multi-national companies in the country who are collaborating with various hospitals and diagnostic labs in order to get the health check ups done for their employees is further expected to boost the market growth in the next few years. Also, India is emerging out as a medical tourism hub and a lot of medical tourists are visiting the country for getting their treatment done on account of availability of cost effective and better treatment options. This in turn is expected to positively influence the market growth through FY2027.

India diagnostic labs market is segmented into provider type, test type, sector, end user, regional distribution, and company. Based on sector, the market can be bifurcated into urban and rural. The urban sector dominated the market in FY2021 with a share of around 73.99% and will continue maintaining its dominance in the coming years also. This can be attributed to the presence of well-equipped diagnostic labs in the urban areas. Also, the diagnostic chains are expanding in the urban areas. Besides, high disposable income of population in the urban areas coupled with higher healthcare awareness is expected to support the market growth over the next few years. Besides, it has been observed that certain laboratories present in rural areas are just collecting the samples or doing the routine tests only and sending the samples to the laboratories in nearby district or city laboratories for testing and diagnosis purposes, thereby supporting the growth of urban sector segment.
