IVD Market Intelligence
Reliable market data are indispensable for any highly-innovative industry such as the In Vitro Diagnostics industry. A timely analysis of challenges and opportunities faced by the industry is in fact vital. EDMA has therefore developed two highly successful, market statistics programmes that provide a comprehensive overview of the latest market trends: European Diagnostic Market Statistics (EDMS) and Management Information System (MIS). Both programmes are based on the Global IVD Products Classification (GIVD).
The EDMA Market Research Committee, chaired by Helene Washington (Abbott), is playing a vital role in coordinating the GIVD and the two programmes. The reports are compiled on a quarterly (EDMS) and monthly (MIS) basis, with data being provided directly by our member companies. EDMS is essential for marketing departments, as it provides detailed quarterly market reports in 14 European countries. MIS is essential for company management, providing monthly top-line worldwide market reports.
Reports are not available for sale and are exclusively available to participating companies. In addition, EDMA publishes an annual summary of aggregated sales in the IVD market – including macroeconomic and healthcare expenditure data – which gives a succinct overview of the market developments for in all EU Member States and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). The Market Research Committee closely cooperates with industry associations around the world in order to expand the diagnostic market programme to other countries so as to build a truly global map of IVD trends and market growth. EDMA is very proud of the programme’s recent introduction to the Canadian market thanks to MEDEC, the local Association of Medical Technology Companies, and its upcoming expansion through AdvaMedDx into the United States. EDMA Market Research Committee is working for the programme to be expanded also to Russia and various Asian markets.
