Key Highlights from the Report

Lateral Flow Assays (LFAs) segment accounted for largest revenue share in 2022. The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the acceptability and practicability of Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) for clinical and public health objectives on a large scale. Quick LFT findings allow people to self-test and acquire a diagnosis outside of a centralized center. Early disease detection has been identified as a significant technique for minimizing morbidity, mortality, and the chance of disease transmission.

Particularly, lateral flow immunoassays (lateral flow tests) have proven to be effective analytical tools at the point of care. LFAs show promise as a method for attaining global pandemic control by enabling rapid disease screening since they are among the least expensive, quickest, and easiest-to-use paper-based POC tests.

The glucose monitoring tests segment accounted for largest revenue share in 2022. There is high demand for over-the-counter glucose monitors in recent years. Rising prevalence of diabetes, along with the importance of routinely checking blood glucose levels, has created high demand for at-home glucose monitoring devices that are simple to use, accurate, and reasonably priced.

Preventative diagnosis of diabetes using a home blood glucose test is a cheap and risk-free option. This is advantageous since diabetes does not usually present symptoms, especially in the beginning. Home testing kits are more cost effective compared to going to a hospital, which is driving revenue growth of this segment.

The market in North America accounted for largest revenue share in 202 The U.S. and Canada bring in the most revenue from the North American markets. Strong presence of prominent market participants, availability of contemporary healthcare infrastructure, and increasing prevalence of diabetes in this region are major factors driving revenue growth of the market. In 2019, around 8.7% of the U.S. population, or 28.7 million people, were diagnosed with diabetes. In the U.S., there were 283,000 children and adolescents under the age of 20 who were diagnosed with diabetes or approximately 35 per 10,000 children.
