Market Overview

Xylose Absorption Tests: Market Insights

Xylose is a carbohydrate which is absorbed by the body. Xylose absorption test is performed to evaluate the ability of carbohydrates absorption by the body and to help to determine the malabsorption cause. An individual can immediately seek medical attention if tenacious diarrhoea and fatty stools symptoms have been observed. This is because a person may have symptoms of malabsorption. The xylose absorption test generally determines how well an individual’s body can absorb xylose. Xylose absorption test measures the xylose level in the blood and/or in the urine to estimate a person’s capacity to absorb carbohydrates. The digestion of food in the body takes place in three steps. Proteins are broken down first and then fats and carbohydrates by enzymes and acids that are present in the stomach. After that bile juice and pancreatic enzymes break down the protein, fats and carbohydrates in the small intestines from the liver.

Xylose Absorption Tests: Market Dynamics

Rising geriatric population is one of the main factors to drive the xylose absorption test market because of the ageing body loose the capability to digest the nutrients and carbohydrate due to which the risk of malabsorption increase. Today, around 8.5% of the population are over 65 years and above, globally. Moreover, increasing junk food and alcohol consumption, use of nutrients supplements are some of the other driving factors for propelling the growth of xylose absorption tests market.

Additionally, the rise in disposable income is increasing the treatment-seeking rate after diagnosis and is expected to propel the growth of the xylose absorption tests market. However, unable to detect the symptoms at an early stage may restrict to opt for xylose absorption tests at a first-place which may hamper the growth of the xylose absorption tests market. Also, xylose absorption test is not widely available and there is a lack of awareness regarding available test which may limit the growth of the xylose absorption tests market.

Xylose Absorption Tests: Overview

Xylose absorption test can be done through a simple blood test and/or urine test, which should be done from time to time. Mainly the nutrients are absorbed in the small intestines and then transported throughout the body and used or stored for further use. If there is insufficient pancreatic enzymes or bile juice in the body, then digestion of carbohydrates cannot be performed properly, which may cause loss of carbohydrates by stool excretion. The improper absorption or digestion may affect the individual to experience symptoms related to malabsorption, malnutrition and deficiency of vitamins. The major drawback of the xylose absorption test is that the numerous major health organizations such as the World Gastroenterology Organization, the American Gastroenterology Association, and the British Society of Gastroenterology, does not include xylose absorption test in their guidelines for assessing potential malabsorption. This factor greatly can adversely impact the growth of xylose absorption test market.

Xylose Absorption Tests: Region-wise Outlook

The Asia-Pacific xylose absorption tests market is expected to grow at a low growth, however, is likely to show a large patient pool with the malabsorption symptoms in the forecast years. This is because of an increasingly ageing population, lack awareness regarding the management of the level of carbohydrate absorptions in the body and availability of xylose absorption test. These factors are likely to hamper the market growth of xylose absorption tests in the region. The North America market is expected to show high xylose absorption tests market growth because the compliance rate of blood and urine testing in the region is high coupled with enlightened healthcare facilities and large treatment-seeking population in the region. Europe and Oceania markets will be in second place in the xylose absorption tests market due to the high adoption rate.
