The health systems are under tremendous strain, as various healthcare organizations are suspending all non-essential care and procedures due to COVID-19 outbreak. All registries including for HLA typing for transplant have been impacted, as they are experiencing or facing significant challenges exporting the products. To overcome these consequences and in response to COVID-19, in April 2020, FDA released updated information for organizations accumulating human cell and tissue products (HCT/Ps) including PBSC and marrow. Additionally, market players focusing on R&D investments will lead to innovations in HLA typing, influencing the market expansion.

Technological advancements in molecular assays segment is driving the global HLA typing for transplant market growth. Presently, target specific PCR method is used to screen disease causative pathogen. Companies are focusing on development of novel platforms for HLA typing. Advancements from initial stages of single pathogen detection to nucleic acid amplification methods have been developed to deliver faster and accurate results. Furthermore, shift from PCR to RT-PCR has revolutionized the identification of DNA and RNA. Advances in genetic sequencing, coupled with innovations in metabolomics and proteomic profiling technologies have created new growth opportunities for more personalized medical approaches.

Increasing utilization of molecular diagnostics in HLA typing has led to an upsurge in its costs, hampering the market growth

Rising demand for molecular diagnostics due to its ability to deliver accurate results in less time has created pressure on industry players to develop new products to satisfy growing consumer demands. Majority of laboratories perform several molecular tests using hematology and chemistry analyzers. A study indicates that gene sequencing test costs around USD 5,000 to USD 10,000 per test which is not affordable to majority of the population.

Advantages associated with PCR based molecular assays will boost the market demand

The PCR based molecular assays segment dominated over 74% of the HLA typing for transplant market share in 2019. PCR technique is used for fast recognition of pathogens. Together with conventional PCR methods, the real-time PCR (RT-PCR) has developed as innovative technology and is increasingly being used in research laboratories and clinical diagnostics. RT-PCR is considered as accurate and fast platform for generation of quantitative as well as qualitative results.

Advent of technologies in instruments will serve as a growth opportunity

The instruments segment is estimated to witness growth rate of over 9.7% during the forecast timeframe. Instruments are now being designed with emphasis on function and cost effectiveness. Advent of modern technologies have enabled development of instruments that provides better and accurate results in less time. Thus, technological advancements will render significant positive impact on the segment growth. Moreover, instruments also have greater shelf life that will further drive the demand for HLA typing instruments.

Increasing application in disease diagnosis will foster the HLA typing for transplant market revenue

The diagnostics segment size was over USD 462.6 million in 2019 due to increasing application in disease diagnosis and presence of new specific genetic testing methods. Moreover, application of HLA typing in preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is increasing. The need for HLA matched bone marrow transplantation treatment for couples at risk with thalassaemic children will further fuel the industry growth.

Increasing number of organ transplant in hospital settings

Hospital segment accounted for around 29.5% market share in 2019. Rising number of patients visit and growing number of transplant procedures that occur in hospitals will increase the demand for HLA typing in the coming years. Increasing solid organ and bone marrow transplantation will impel the segment growth of HLA typing in hospitals. Furthermore, presence of sophisticated infrastructure and skilled resources in hospital settings will stimulate the segment demand.
