Cholesterol helps to make the outer layer of the cells in body, produce bile acids, which help in
digestion and absorption of dietary fats. However, high cholesterol in the blood, could lead to
development of fatty patches on the walls of blood vessels, known as atheroma. Blood testing is the
only way to check cholesterol levels in the body. The Adult Treatment Panel of the National
Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) recommends that all adults aged 20 years and above should
have a fasting lipoprotein profile (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglyceride)
tested, once every five years, to screen for coronary heart disease risk. Such initiatives from
organizations is expected to aid in positive growth of the global cholesterol testing service market.
Market Dynamics
Increasing prevalence of high cholesterol among population is expected to drive growth of the market
in the near future. For instance, according to American Heart Association, around 7.8% of adolescents
aged 12—19 years have total cholesterol levels ≥200 mg/dL, and about 98.9 million people in the U.S.
aged 20 years and above have total blood cholesterol levels of 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) in
2013. Furthermore, increasing geriatric and obese population is also expected to drive demand for
cholesterol testing services as the prevalence of high cholesterol is more in aged and obese population.
For instance, according to Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in
2016, around 12.4% of the population in the Asia Pacific region was aged 60 years or above, which is
expected to reach 1.3 billion people by 2050. According to a study published by The Organisation for
Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 2015, across the OECD, 19.5% of the adult
population was reported obese. This rate ranges from less than 6% in Korea and Japan to over 30% in
Hungary, New Zealand, Mexico, and the U.S. over one in four adults is reported obese in Australia,
Canada, Chile, South Africa, and the U.K.
