Awareness on hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism continues to remain low in India, resulting into fewer people undergoing thyroid function tests. The India thyroid function test market will witness moderate growth in 2016, raking in 41.6 Mn in revenues, up from US$ 40.1 Mn in 2015. While high prevalence of thyroid dysfunction and government initiatives to raise awareness will continue to support growth in 2016, stagnant R&D investment in immunochemistry will impede overall momentum.
TSH will continue to be the leading test type segment in 2016, raking in US$ 25.1 Mn in revenues, an increase of US$ 1 Mn from 2015. TSH is widely recommended as a primary test for diagnosing hypothyroidism by medical experts, contributing to higher revenues vis-à-vis T3, T4, FT3, and FT4 tests.
T4 will extend its lead over T3 test type segment, witnessing a higher y-o-y revenue growth in 2016 over 2015. T4 revenues totalled US$ 4.5 Mn in 2015, and this segment is expected to add US$ 1.7 Mn in revenues in 2016.
