Demand for Arthropod-borne Viral Infections Testing to Expand Twofold by 2030; Adoption on Upsurge amid COVID-19 Pandemic

May 11,2020 | Healthcare

Subtropical and tropical regions register a high proportion of Arthropod-borne viral infections. According to the WHO, dengue is most common arbovirus disease, with nearly 40% of the world’s population at risk. Governments across the world are working closely with private companies and are actively involved in the development of rapid diagnostics for Arthropod-borne viral detection.

Arthropod Borne Viral Infections Testing Market

Owing to such developments, there has been increasing demand for ELISA-based tests, creating an absolute opportunity for growth of the Arthropod-borne viral infections testing market.  FMI - a well-established name in the market research domain - forecasts that, the Arthropod-borne viral infections testing market will close in on a valuation of around US$ 2 Bn by the year 2029.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is raging across continents, especially in North America and Europe. Governments as well the healthcare sector are racing to flatten the curve. Several diagnostic tests to treat COVID-19 patients have been availed currently, with more receiving emergency approvals. A majority of these testing methods are based on reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA). While the former is the current standard approach for COVID-19, the latter delivers faster clinical outcomes. The current alarming situation is accenting the need for Arthropod-borne viral infections testing more than ever.

“Driven by tech-enabled advancements, manufacturers are focused on widening the application radar of diagnostics to other infections, and, as such, propelling the growth of the Arthropod-borne viral infections testing market.”

Strong Market Consolidation Activities Will Boost the Testing Market

At present, the Arthropod-borne viral infections testing market is characterized by a limited number of players, with a majority of them based in the U.S.  Mergers and acquisitions are considered a differentiating strategy to penetrate into untapped markets and strengthen one’s market position. Manufacturers are mainly focused on developing new diagnostics based on microarray technology and mass spectrograph. Microarray technology majorly covers the detection of nucleic acid fragments of different Arthropod-borne pathogens that will help in identifying viral genotypes and serotypes. However, the technology is still under the developmental stage.
