Global COVID-19 Diagnostics Market to Witness a Considerable Growth During 2021-2026, Aided by the Introduction of New and Improved Technology

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global COVID-19 Diagnostics Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market is being supported by the growing cases of COVID-19 infections in the United States, which has performed around 390 million tests for COVID-19 as of March 2021.

The global COVID-19 diagnostics industry is anticipated to rise significantly in the forecast period owing to the rising innovation and introduction of new technologies for faster and more efficient testing of SARS-CoV-2. This can be attributed to the rising number of active cases across the continents. The growing focus on at-home testing and integration of advanced software has significantly contributed to the industry growth.

The concept of the switch health mobile rapid testing units is likely to further aid the market as it has a potential to reach on-site factory workers and sport persons. A significant increase in the infected patients has been witnessed post ease of lockdown, owing to the resurgence of building and construction activities, sporting events, and travelling, among others. The travel and tourism industry, which was significantly affected by the pandemic, has propelled the COVID-19 testing initiatives and is likely to further bolster the market growth. The United States is currently leading the market growth as the country has performed more than 390 million tests for COVID-19.

Some of the leading players in the industry are Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT) and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc (NYSE: TMO). In 2020, companies such as LabCorp (NYSE: LH) have been looking for the U.S FDA approval for their at-home test kits. The testing method developed by LabCorp not only focusses on COVID-19, but can also detect multiple types of infections like flu and RSV. This, coupled with the growing focus of companies towards expanding their capacity and introducing ‘return-to-work’ policies through employer focused COVID-19 testing offerings, is expected to further bolster the market growth.
