Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Rapid Medical Diagnostic Kits market size is expected to be worth around US$ 19.02 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Rapid Medical Diagnostic Kits market size was valued at US$ 13.10 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Rapid medical diagnostic kits enhance the speed of etiologic diagnosis of patients affected with chronic ailments. Moreover, speedy diagnosis is of paramount importance in individuals affected with infectious diseases. Thus, an increase in the number of manufacturers keen on exploring this space is driving the revenue in the market.

Key players are focusing on introducing novel medical supplies that require limited operational training, offer convenient usage, and ensure effective analysis. This is expected to propel the demand for rapid medical care among the industry’s target audience, which is inclusive of a general population affected with chronic diseases, coupled with the healthcare professionals determined to recommend an appropriate rapid medical evaluation.

The gradual shift toward point of care (POC) testing is also an important factor boosting the adoption of these test kits. Moreover, the recent pandemic outbreak of COVID-19 has piqued the interest of healthcare professionals in this industry space. High demand for portable testing kits in COVID-19 diagnostics is expected to make a significantly positive impact on the market expansion during the forecast period.

Novel rapid diagnostic tests are being developed that are expected to facilitate the prevention of infections along with antimicrobial stewardship. Newly developed tests are combined with Antimicrobial Stewardship (ASP) to optimize antimicrobial utilization as well as patient outcomes. Moreover, test kits with a broad scope of diagnosis and swift turnaround time are entering the space, offering lucrative opportunities for revenue growth.

Report Highlights

Over the counter (OTC) kits dominated the market in 2020 with a share of 54.3%. This is attributed to the fact that these tests are easy to use in the “near-patient setting” and are a cost-effective alternative to expensive laboratory testing. These tests are typically used in home care settings, providing an easy and cost-effective alternative to laboratory testing. Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDTs) commonly make use of saliva, urine, and blood to diagnose diseases.

According to the Consumer Healthcare Products Association, clinical cost savings amounted to over USD 77 billion owing to the low pricing of OTC diagnostic products. These tests also aid in the detection of various infectious and chronic diseases with limited or no symptoms, facilitating early treatment and reducing other complications associated with the disease. While these tests are most often used in home care settings, these tests are also used in hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic laboratories.

Professional rapid diagnostic test kits accounted for a significant revenue share in 2020. These tests most often make use of techniques, such as PCR and molecular diagnostics, providing higher test sensitivity and specificity. Professional laboratory tests are typically performed after a positive RDT has been obtained to confirm disease diagnosis. As RDTs have low sensitivity, they often provide false negatives, thus the use of professional tests is considered to be the gold standard in diagnostic settings.

The lateral flow technology segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.1% in 2020. The low development cost and easy manufacturing of lateral flow assays have led to the expansion of these tests into several rapid testing applications. Lateral flow assays are commonly adopted across qualitative and quantitative identification of specific antigens, gene amplification products, and antibodies in hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic laboratories, thus further contributing to the segment growth.

Expanding application of lateral flow tests in the early detection of COVID-19 has been witnessed recently. For instance, in March 2020, Ozo Life announced the launch of its OZO COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits-a latex-enhanced lateral flow immunoassay, which ensures testing of the SARS-CoV-2 infection with enhanced sensitivity. Moreover, an increase in the public and private partnerships for the development of novel lateral flow tests targeted toward COVID-19 diagnosis is set to propel the segment growth.

The solid-phase technology segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2020. These are used to detect multiple targets in a single test, maximizing the use of the patient sample. The presence of a broad spectrum of , pathogens, and environmental contaminants is detected by lateral flow testing, resulting in the increasing demand for these products.

The infectious disease testing segment held the largest revenue share of nearly 42.0% in 2020. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has created an urgent demand for its rapid diagnostic solutions as it is a cornerstone of the management of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of January 2021, more than 99 million COVID-19 patients have been reported across the globe, contributing to the segment’s revenue generation capacity.

Countries including the U.S., Brazil, Russia, the U.K., Spain, Italy, India, Germany, Turkey, and Colombia have reported the highest number of COVID-19 cases. Mass testing has increased to manage this pandemic. To fulfill this growing need, numerous diagnostics companies are focusing on R&D activities for the development of novel COVID-19 rapid medical diagnostic kits and gaining approval from different regulatory bodies.

The blood glucose testing segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. The sheer volume of rapid blood glucose tests marketed and currently under usage is the key contributor to the segment growth. Besides, abundant adoption of these tests for the immediate measurement of elevated blood cholesterol levels across assisted living centers, home care, clinics, and laboratories is expected to boost the segment growth.

In 2020, hospitals and clinics held the largest share of 46.5% as they serve as primary care settings for the diagnosis and treatment of all diseases. Furthermore, increasing hospitalization due to the outbreak of COVID-19 is expected to support segment growth. Constant changes in the healthcare industry have led to an increase in the need for hospitals with enhanced diagnostic services.

A rise in healthcare expenditure globally has also significantly contributed to the growth of the market. As hospitals maintain and collect data on disease prevalence, regulatory bodies often collaborate with them for disease surveillance. On the other hand, with the advent of POC diagnostics or at-home diagnosis, there has been a steady rise in the number of rapid diagnostic tests being performed globally.

The home care end-use segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Most rapid influenza diagnostic kits that are Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) waived are typically used in POC settings. Lateral flow rapid antigen assay that helps detect pregnancy at home is widely used, thus driving the demand for home use kits. Blood glucose testing strips are also commonly used at home, which are a safe, easy, and affordable way to check diabetes. The aforementioned factors are collaboratively set to contribute to the growth of the home care end-use segment.

North America dominated the market in 2020 with a share of more than 30.0% and is expected to maintain its lead from 2021 to 2028. The U.S. emerged as the key revenue-generating segment in 2020. Numerous diagnostics companies are involved in the development of novel COVID-19 rapid diagnostic tests and are striving to gain approval from the FDA to launch these tests in the U.S.

For instance, as early as May 2020, Quidel Corporation, an American diagnostic healthcare company, received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA for its new Sofia 2 SARS Antigen FIA for rapid diagnosis of COVID-19. Asia Pacific countries are expected to register the highest cumulative growth rate of 5.1% from 2021 to 2028. Japan and China both generated robust revenues in 2020 and are expected to maintain this trend in the next 10 years.
