The global Food Allergy Diagnostics & Therapeutics market size is expected to be worth around US$ 4.80 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Food Allergy Diagnostics & Therapeutics market size was valued at US$ 2.71 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
The market is expected to grow in the coming years owing to increasing incidence of food allergies coupled with rising demand for products for management of these conditions.
There are more than 160 foods that can lead to allergic reactions; however, only 8 most common allergens have been identified by the FDA. These include eggs, milk, peanuts, soy, tree nuts, wheat, shellfish, and fish. Some of the other allergens are corn, meat, gelatin, seeds, spices, and fruits & vegetables. Based on Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) 2016 data, around 15 million people in the U.S. have food allergy. Ingestion of any of the common allergens might lead to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction, which might further result in anaphylactic shock. Every year, around 2,000 hospitalizations, 30,000 emergency room visits, and 150 deaths due to anaphylaxis are recorded in the U.S.
However, administering epinephrine using an auto-injector during the early stage of anaphylaxis might help avoid any serious complications. Treatment for food allergy costs around USD 25 billion annually in the U.S. Development of cost-effective in vitro diagnostic tests for detection of allergy is expected to fuel the demand for diagnostic products.
The market is segmented into diagnostics and therapeutics. The therapeutics segment dominated the market in 2020 owing to growing awareness about various treatment modalities for the management of food allergies. This segment is further classified into antihistamines and epinephrine auto-injectors. Antihistamines segment held a significant share in 2020 owing to their wide usage as they act by directly blocking the release of histamine, specifically by binding to the H1 receptors present on glandular cells, smooth muscles, and nerve endings.
Diagnostic products include instruments, consumables, and services. Consumables are expected to exhibit lucrative growth over the forecast period, owing to the availability of various advanced and rapid test kits. For instance, IgG Food Intolerance Screening Test Kit used for the detection of food-specific IgG.
There are two diagnostic test types-in Vivo and in vitro. Rising demand for blood tests has led to the high growth of in vitro testing. Skin prick tests are also used widely to detect food allergies, thereby driving the adoption of in vivo testing in the market.
On the basis of allergen sources, peanut allergen dominated the food allergy diagnostics & therapeutics market in 2018 due to an increase in the prevalence of allergies caused due to peanuts. According to a study published by the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (ACAAI) in 2017, peanut allergies in children increased by 21% since 2010. The data further stated that approximately 2.5% of children in the U.S. are allergic to peanuts.
In adults, food allergies occur due to common allergens including shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, and fish; whereas children are commonly allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat, or soy. Around 90% of allergies are caused due to milk, soy, wheat, eggs, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and peanuts.
On the basis of end-use, hospitals & clinics accounted for the largest market share in 2020, owing to an increase in the number of people seeking treatment for allergies. An increasing number of allergic cases requiring hospitalization is also a factor driving the segment. In addition, the growing risk for severe allergic reactions has increased instances of early therapeutic interventions in hospitals and clinics.
Diagnostic laboratories segment is expected to exhibit significant growth over the forecast period due to the extensive application of allergy diagnostic kits in disease diagnosis. Allergists commonly recommend a blood or skin test for food allergy diagnosis in order to assess the presence of food-specific immunoglobulin E antibodies in the body. Moreover, the rising number of diagnostic centers also contributes to the growth of diagnostic laboratories segment.
Europe dominated the market in 2020 due to an increase in the incidence of food allergies. Around 17 million people in Europe reported food allergies. Fourteen allergens were found to be the most common causes of food allergies and intolerance in this region. Increasing awareness about various available treatments for food allergies also drives the market in this region.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to an increase in the number of food allergy cases, especially peanut allergy. This is mainly due to factors such as modernization and change in lifestyle. In addition, the growing population in the region is also driving the regional market.
