The increasing burden of UTIs, diabetes, and kidney & liver diseases; rising geriatric population and the subsequent increase in age-associated diseases and increasing adoption of POC diagnostic tests are factors supporting the growth of this market. Growth opportunities in emerging economies provide lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the urinalysis market. 


According to a new market research report, "Urinalysis Market by Product (Dipsticks, Pregnancy & Fertility Kits, Reagents, Disposables, Automated, Semi-automated, POC Analyzers), Application (UTI, Diabetes, Kidney Diseases), End User (Hospitals, Labs, Homecare) & Test Type - Global Forecast to 2026", The global urinalysis market size is projected to reach USD 4.9 billion by 2026 from USD 3.5 billion in 2021, at a 7.2% CAGR.  


The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the overall sales of most of the companies Lockdowns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic caused people to delay undergoing health checkups, thus affecting the number of tests being performed and sales of reagents. However, a resurgence in testing numbers is seen as countries gradually ease restrictions on movement.  


With the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to the development of vaccines and therapeutic drugs, there is a growing call for the development of more precise and simple testing technologies and the expansion of testing structures. COVID-19 has also impacted the regulatory environment and practices, as governments and healthcare providers face unprecedented challenges.

Due to rapid growth in the senior population, the prevalence of age-associated diseases such as diabetes, liver, and kidney diseases are expected to increase significantly. The diagnosis and management of such diseases are responsible for the increasing number of prescriptions for tests such as creatinine, albumin, glucose, ketones, and bilirubin, etc. These tests are performed by urinalysis; hence, it is expected to have a positive impact on this market. 


The availability of refurbished instruments acts as a challenge in the growth of this market as these instruments offer the same functionalities as new equipment at a lower cost. Several end users, mainly small and medium-sized laboratories, opt for cost-effective and refurbished systems.  


In the absence of well-grounded regulatory frameworks, there may be an influx of low-quality and refurbished products into the economy. Considering these factors, the demand for refurbished analyzers can be expected to increase in the coming years, as these systems offer the same functionalities at a lower cost.  


The urinalysis market is segmented into disease screening and pregnancy and fertility. In 2020, the disease screening segment accounted for the largest share. This can be attributed to the increasing incidence of UTIs, diabetes, liver diseases and kidney ailments worldwide.
