Projected Advancements In Metabolic Cart Technologies To Boost The Growth Of Metabolic Testing Market

The global Metabolic Testing Market is estimated to be valued at Us$ 641.62 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR Of 7.6% over the forecast period 2023 To 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Metabolic testing, also known as metabolic cart or indirect calorimetry, is a non-invasive medical testing method used to measure respiration and metabolic rate of patients during rest and exercise in both clinical and research settings. Metabolic cart indirectly measures the oxygen consumed (VO2), carbon dioxide produced (VCO2), and respiratory exchange ratio (RER) to calculate calorie expenditure and substrate utilization. It helps clinicians understand patient’s health and determine the intensity of physical activity or treatment. The tests are useful in diagnosing and treating conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases.

Market key trends:

Technological advancements are leading to more portable and automated metabolic cart solutions. Wearable metabolic testing devices are gaining popularity as they allow for continuous monitoring outside of clinical settings. Integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities is enabling predictive and prescriptive analytics. Growing popularity of telehealth and remote patient monitoring during COVID-19 has further boosted demand for home use metabolic testing solutions. Moreover, increasing lifestyle diseases, rising fitness consciousness and growing applications in sports medicine and clinical research are expected to drive the metabolic testing market during the forecast period.
