The self diagnostics market is made up of a diverse group of products that are thriving or flailing due to the economy. For medical segments—mainly those that involve the testing of blood—testing is more of a necessity and is often covered by insurance, which has impacted retail sales. At the same time, people are postponing pregnancy while waiting for better economic times, thereby dampening sales of home pregnancy tests. There has been a strong showing for products that allow for discrete and inexpensive testing at home, as is found in the smaller segment of urine tests. Finally, private label products are proving to be the tortoise to the brand name’s hare in the race for sales success.
