Determining glycated hemoglobin levels assure healthcare professionals about the patient’s blood glucose levels. This test is used for diagnosing and monitoring hemoglobin A1c levels in the diabetic patients. As the A1c test reflects the average amount of glucose for the past two to three months, it is considered to be more reliable than traditional blood glucose tests. Due to increasing incidence of diabetes and growing awareness of better management of diabetes, the global hemoglobin A1c testing devices market is expected to develop rapidly in the years to come. Nowadays, medical professionals usually prescribe HbA1c test over conventional blood glucose tests to patients.

The global hemoglobin A1c testing devices market is segmented on the basis of geography, end use, and technology. By end use, the global hemoglobin A1c testing devices market is classified into laboratory testing devices and point-of-care testing devices. In 2012, the laboratory testing devices segment dominated the global hemoglobin a1c testing devices market. However, the global market for point-of-care testing devices is predicted to develop at a fast pace in the years to come.
On the basis of end use, the global hemoglobin A1c testing devices market is bifurcated into PoC testing devices and laboratory testing devices. Of these, the market is currently led by the latter segment. The laboratory testing devices segment had also dominated the market in 2012, with a share of over 66% in the market. It will continue to dominate the global hemoglobin A1c testing devices market till 2019, but will show a far slower growth rate as compared to the point-of-contact testing devices segment.
In terms of technology, the global hemoglobin A1c testing devices market was led by the ion-exchange HPCL segment. The report, however, puts the segment of boronate affinity chromatography at the top of the technologies to be used in the market in 2019 based on its rapid growth rate.
