COVID-19 Pandemic Leverages Production of Respiratory Pathogen Testing Kits, Market Players Emphasize on Inorganic Growth to Retain Market Foothold

Respiratory disorders are becoming commonplace across every continent. Changing environmental landscapes in the wake of urbanization has deteriorated air quality, providing a breeding ground for disease causing pathogens. Infections such as pneumonia, common cold, influenza, tuberculosis, bronchitis and the COVID-19 are spurring technological enhancements in the diagnosis and eradication of such respiratory disorders

DUBAI / ACCESSWIRE / June 16, 2020 / Future Market Insights: The global respiratory pathogen testing market is set to catapult substantially during the forecast period 2020-2030. Widespread prevalence of a host of respiratory infections due to air pollution in the wake of deforestation and urbanization acts as a growth catalyst. Recognizing the magnitude of this problem, governments’ world over have increased their budget allocation towards developing respiratory diagnostics.

This has motivated various pharmaceutical companies to invest in the development of improved diagnostic tests which are capable of delivering results in a much lesser time period compared to the existing tests. At present, rapid molecular assays, immunofluorescence assays, antigen testing, RT-PCR and vital culture are the most prevalent tests.

The COVID-19 pandemic has only added more fuel to the fire, spurring healthcare and pharmaceutical stakeholders to accelerate research and development on numerous advanced respiratory testing kits. As the number of infections increase exponentially every day, hospitals and clinics are finding it unnerving to cater to the increasing patient pool. This is due to acute shortages in terms of medical equipment, beds, protective gear and testing kits. Realizing this, governments, healthcare providers and market players have pooled their resources and are tirelessly striving to provide quality healthcare to people and mitigate the impact of this deadly pandemic. With a general feeling of uncertainty and cautiousness, the market will remain afloat even in the post-pandemic scenario.

“Healthcare practitioners and prominent pharmaceutical companies are directing all their resources towards mushrooming research and development on rapid molecular assays, highly effective in detecting pathogens by virtue of natural antisense transcripts (NATs). These tests do not depend upon the target microbes’ viability, generating results within a much shorter timeframe,” concludes a prominent FMI analyst.

Respiratory Pathogen Testing Kits Market- Key Takeaways

  • The respiratory pathogen testing kits market is poised to surge at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period of 2020-2030.
  • RT-PCR tests are the most prevalent respiratory pathogen detection tests employed across different healthcare settings due to its accuracy.
  • Increased vulnerability of people engaged in coal mining to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has mandated the need for respiratory pathogen testing.
  • North America and Europe collectively account for over half of the total respiratory pathogen testing kits market. However, market players are increasingly clamoring for strategic market expansion in the Asia-Pacific in the wake of growing incidences of respiratory diseases.

Respiratory Pathogen Testing Kits Market- Prominent Drivers

  • Initiation of respiratory diseases eradication campaigns such as the Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Units (VTEUs) program will provide immense traction to the market.
  • Technological enhancements by market players to improve testing efficiency to yield timely results will motivate patients to undergo respiratory infections tests, providing leverage to the market.

Respiratory Pathogen Testing Kits Market- Key Restraints

  • High operating costs incurred by private laboratories in conducting molecular processes is anticipated to restrain the respiratory pathogen testing kits market.

Anticipated Impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak

The coronavirus pandemic has provided an opportunity for the government, healthcare settings and pharmaceutical companies to collaborate on a common platform towards the annihilation of the life-threatening disease. For instance, regulatory bodies throughout Europe are providing monetary support to market vendors for offering coronavirus testing kits. The European Commission sanctioned nearly US$ 11 million in January 2020 as a part of its Horizon 2020 program to support research related to coronavirus. This has immensely leveraged the respiratory pathogen testing kits market in Europe since the pandemic’s onset. Similarly, the Australian government announced a US$ 1.68 billion aid package in March 2020 to establish a respiratory clinics’ network to combat COVID-19.

The outbreak has also prompted Russia to set up the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) to produce 50,000 respiratory pathogen test kits, which eventually increased to 2.5 million kits later on. Such efforts indicate that the world is leaving no stone unturned to mitigate the pandemic’s ghastly impact on human lives. It has also been observed that the pandemic has compelled many industrial verticals to lay off their employees as a cost-cutting initiative. As more people are becoming unemployed, anxiety and depression levels are registering upward sloping curves. Consequently, habits such as smoking have increased, directly impacting the respiratory health of these people. In this scenario, the number of patients seeking respiratory treatment and testing has augmented, providing traction to the respiratory pathogen kits testing market.
