Metabolic Testing Market size is estimated to be valued at USD 541.3 Million in 2021 and is poised to grow at a significant CAGR of 7.6% over 2022-2028. Metabolic tests determine how quickly the patient’s body burns calories, and these also measure the amount of oxygen used during rest and physical activity. Several years ago, metabolic testing could only be performed in an expensive hospital or laboratory setting. Nowadays, gyms and health clubs are giving metabolic assessments utilizing low-cost equipment. The processes and equipment used in a gym or health spa setting are frequently like the protocols and equipment used in a hospital setting. Based on the application type, the market is segmented into Critical Care, Lifestyle Diseases. The lifestyle Diseases segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast years owing to increased lifestyle disorders such as atherosclerosis, heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes, as well as smoking cessation aids and alcohol use. Lifestyle and nutritional habits have distinct implications on cardiometabolic disease and other metabolic disorders. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), at least 2.8 million people die each year due to obesity, and nearly 17 million people die each year from cardiovascular diseases. The increased prevalence of lifestyle disorders such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity are the primary drivers for the analysed industry. The rising frequency of lifestyle-related diseases and an aging population predisposed to chronic diseases such as cancer and renal problems are some of the primary reasons driving the metabolic testing market. Furthermore, technical improvements such as introducing digital metabolic rate testing equipment and fast-rising healthcare spending levels will likely drive market expansion throughout the projection period.
