Global COVID-19 Diagnostics Market Highlights 2022-2030

The global COVID-19 diagnostics market is estimated to grow with a high CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-2030, which can be attributed to the significant growth in COVID-19 affected population globally, along with the rising need for rapid and accurate diagnosis. In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak has affected the whole world adversely owing to the fast human-to-human transmission of the SARS-COV-2 virus. As the damaging effect of the virus on organs can be depicted only through its diagnostic tests, there is an ever-expanding demand for the COVID-19 diagnostics. The growth of the market can also be attributed to factors such as the increasing geriatric population and a high number of individuals with co-morbid conditions such as hypertension or diabetes who are more vulnerable to infections, accompanied by the growing investment in COVID-19 research on a global level. According to the data collected from World Health Organization, till July 2021, the estimated diagnosed cases and number of deaths from COVID-19 in the world were around 183.7 million and 3.981 million, respectively. Moreover, the increasing focus on home-based tests as compared to laboratory-based tests, which are time-consuming, is also projected to contribute to market growth in the near future.

The market is segmented based on technology into molecular (RT-PCR) testing, antigen-based testing, antibody (serology) testing, CT scan, and others, out of which, the molecular (RT-PCR) testing segment is anticipated to grab the largest share by the end of 2030 on account of its increasing demand for COVID-19 diagnosis and better efficiency of molecular (RT-PCR) testing than other methods. Moreover, the primers required for performing molecular (RT-PCR) testing can be produced with a higher speed, which is also projected to contribute to the growth of the segment during the forecast period. Additionally, on the basis of end-user, the diagnostic labs segment in the market is projected to grow with a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the fact that molecular tests require diagnostic labs for processing samples as it involves the use of various kinds of reagents and other instruments.
