Glycated hemoglobin testing is used to measure concentration of blood glucose in individuals. HbA1c, is a chemical form of glycated hemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming 'glycated'. It is used to determine average glucose level in person’s blood over a period of time. Glycosylated hemoglobin test shows person's average blood glucose level for two to three months before the test. This can help to determine how well a person's diabetes is being controlled over time. High blood glucose level causes glucose molecules to attach the hemoglobin in red blood cells. The longer hyperglycemia occurs in blood, the more glucose binds to hemoglobin in the red blood cells and the higher the glycated hemoglobin. Test results may differ depending on the analytical technique, age of the patient, and biological variation among individuals. Two individuals with the same average blood sugar can have HbA1c values that differ by as much as three percentage points
Global Glycated Hemoglobin Testing Market Dynamics:
Increasing prevalence of diabetes mellitus and development in diagnosis devices for diabetes are major factors driving growth of the global glycated hemoglobin testing market.

Analysis by Region:
North America market is expected to dominate the global glycated hemoglobin testing market, and accounts for largest market revenue share over 30% in 2017 as compared to that of markets in other regions. Dominance by North America market is expected to continue over the forecast period owing to higher demand from consumers in countries such as the US and Canada. Other factors include presence of leading manufacturers in these countries, and an increasing consumer base adopting portable point-of-care testing (POCT) devices in countries in this region. Furthermore, high prevalence rate coupled with increasing incidence of chronic diseases especially diabetes, and technological advancements in monitoring equipment used by glycated hemoglobin testing in countries in North America is fueling growth to the North America glycated hemoglobin testing market.
Technological advancements in glycated hemoglobin testing market, coupled with prominent manufacturers developing portable testing devices are other major factors expected to boost growth of the North America glycated hemoglobin testing market over the forecast period. In 2015 for instance, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. launched its VARIANT II TURBO HbA1c Kit - 2.0 for diagnosing diabetes.
Revenue contribution from market in the US was estimated to be 2.6 times that that of the revenue contributed from market in Canada in the North America glycated hemoglobin testing market
In 2016, Europe accounted for the second largest revenue share contribution to the global glycated hemoglobin testing market followed by markets in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa respectively. Increasing incidence coupled with high prevalence rate of diabetes is a major factor driving growth of the Europe glycated hemoglobin testing market. Moreover, favorable government policies for support of diabetes testing & management is another factor expected to contribute growth of the Europe glycated hemoglobin testing market over the forecast period.
Revenue contribution from market in the France was estimated to be 1.8 times that that of the revenue contributed from market in Italy in the Europe glycated hemoglobin testing market.
