Women's Health Diagnostic Testing Markets
Even though slightly more than half of the US population is female, medical research historically has neglected the health needs of women, other than reproductive issues. However, during the past two decades, there have been major changes in government and private support of women’s health research -- in policies, regulations, and the organization of research efforts. In a recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, the Washington DC-based institute found that women’s health research has contributed to significant progress over the past 20 years in lessening the burden of disease and reducing deaths from some conditions for women, while other conditions have seen only moderate change or even little or no change.

This Kalorama Information report, Women's Health Diagnostic Testing Markets provides insight into this key area of testing. The following tests are among those covered in this report.
  • Pregnancy and Ovulation Tests
  • Bone Density Testing
  • Prenatal Screening
  • Ultrasound
  • Mammography
  • Pap Smears
  • Colposcopy
  • HPV Testing
  • Ovarian Cancer Tests
  • UTI Testing
  • Neonatal Jaundice Testing
  • Auto Immune Disease Testing
  • Cystic Fibrosis Testing
Women make more than 75% of the health care decisions in American households and spend almost two of every three health care dollars. Women also make more than 65% of physician visits, 62% of prescription drug purchases, and 76% of the nursing home population. The life expectancy of women is longer than for men and is climbing steadily due to advancements in medicine. Yet, female health is an area that has much room for improvement both in the development of products and the treatment of diseases.

This report analyzes the current and potential world markets for key diagnostic tests targeted at women’s health. This report generally forecasts future market growth for these tests to 2015. Market segments covered include the world and North American markets.
