Rapid Diagnostics Market Size

Rapid Diagnostics Market size was over USD 37 billion in 2022 and will grow at a 7.6% CAGR between 2023 and 2032.

Rapid Diagnostics Market

The increasing prevalence of infectious diseases will drive industry expansion. High prevalence of viral & microbial disease variants and the development of precise diagnostic tests will augment this growth. Hepatitis, influenza disease, dengue, and coronavirus are some of the most prevalent diseases globally. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2021, around USD 354 million people globally were infected with Hepatitis and the rate is increasing at a steady pace. The high risk of infectious diseases will drive the adoption of rapid diagnostic testing. Furthermore, implementation of regulations and safety practices in healthcare settings will expand the customer base for medical gloves and other diagnostic equipment.

Low accuracy of results of rapid diagnostics may hinder market progress. Lack of proficiency to perform the test resulting in misdiagnosis may lead to serious damage. Inaccuracy in rapid diagnostic testing can lead to inappropriate treatment resulting in certain other complications. However, several market players are emphasizing on taking up innovative approaches to attain highly accurate rapid diagnostic testing in order to minimize the disadvantages associated with rapid diagnostic tests.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the rapid diagnostics market landscape. The significant demand for COVID-19 diagnostic testing has augmented to prevent infections due to the coronavirus. Rapid diagnostic tests can operate in any low-resource setting including home care settings and were needed to adequately combat the pandemic. Governments worldwide have proposed robust testing strategy such as usage of rapid diagnostics for early detection of potentially infectious individuals. Several market players and government agencies emphasized the investment in R&D to develop advanced rapid diagnostic solutions to cater to rising coronavirus infection across the globe. This has led to the launch of numerous innovative products to serve the rising demand for broad-scale testing.
