Worldwide Fecal Occult Testing Industry to 2026 – Players Include Abbott Laboratories, Beckman Coulter and Eiken Chemical Among Others –

The “Fecal Occult Testing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026” report has been added to’s offering.

The global fecal occult testing market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2015-2020. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global fecal occult testing market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.

A fecal occult blood test (FOBT) is a noninvasive procedure used to detect hidden blood in the feces or stool. It is performed by collecting samples using cards and flushable reagent pads or tissues. These samples are sent to the laboratory for testing and are used to diagnose conditions such as hemorrhoids, diverticulosis, ulcers, colitis, benign tumors and colon polyps or cancer, which cause bleeding in the digestive tract. At present, the growing awareness about early screening is promoting the adoption of fecal occult testing, as it enables quick medical decisions, provides effective healthcare, and leads to improved quality of life and the reduced mortality rate.

The rising focus on integrated health services for improved patient experience and health outcomes, in confluence with the increasing inclination towards point-of-care diagnostics (POCD), represents one of the key factors stimulating the market growth. Apart from this, the rising geriatric population is accelerating the growth of the market as the risk of contracting diseases increases with age. As a result, governing agencies of various countries are implementing several FOBT screening programs for older adults.

Furthermore, the widespread adoption of minimally invasive (MI) procedures is contributing to the growth of the market. Besides this, immunochemical fecal occult blood tests (iFOBTs or FITs) are gaining traction as they are easy to use and clinically more sensitive to cancers and advanced adenomas. The easy availability of FOBT devices at online retail stores is anticipated to create a positive impact on the market growth in the upcoming years.
