Self Testing Market

Key Findings of the Study

  • Global revenues will grow at 5.5% CAGR over forecast period, 2020-2030
  • Blood glucose testing to hold prominent share in self-testing market, owing to high prevalence rate of diabetes
  • Self-testing kits for testing urine and blood samples to account for greater demand through 2030

“Lack of trust on accuracy and quality and reluctance of individuals to address health issues are key challenges before self-testing market players. Bringing regulations to effect, abidance with prevalent accreditations, and developing transparent solution to fulfil diagnostic requirements of individuals are the order of the day,” says analyst at FMI.

COVID-19 Impact on Self-testing Market

In wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, movement restrictions (lockdown) and mass testing have become key measures to control the virus contagion. To achieve the objective, self-testing kits are emerging as a cost-effective way to reach wider sections of society.

Realizing their potential, government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are granting rapid approvals to at-home COVID-19 test kits, for instance,

  • LabCorp – company that has network of medical labs across the US - has developed at-home COVID-19 test kit that will bring coronavirus testing to doorsteps of every household.
  • Everlywell – a health and wellness company – has designed at-home COVID-19 testing kit that enables individuals to self-collect nasal samples at respective homes and send them to designated laboratories for diagnostic testing. The offering has received emergency use authorization from the FDA.

Authorization of COVID-19 at-home collection kits that will be used with multiple tests at multiple labs offers better patient access to tests as well as protects people from potential spread.

Self-testing for COVID-19 as a novel clinical pathway will demand for proactive monitoring and analysis for efficiency. However, realizing the existing restricted state of access to testing for significant number of individuals, risk of inaction will be a major concern.
