As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the world, our analysts are constantly tracking the impact of this rapidly evolving situation on the markets and the consumer purchase behaviours. Thus, our latest estimates and analysis about the current market trends and forecast will exhaustively reflect the effects of this emerging pandemic.
The Middle East and Africa COVID-19 diagnostics market is being aided by the growing number of COVID-19 patients, which has reached over 2.76 million people within the MENA region as per November 2020.
Based on end use, the laboratories segment accounts for a significant share in the COVID-19 diagnostics industry in the region. The adoption of detection kits is maximised by a constant increase in laboratory capacity through the expansion of testing portfolios in existing centres as well as by the creation of modern, high-capacity laboratories. Such initiatives can be accelerated by strategic partnerships between public-health organisations, the government, private laboratories, and equipment manufacturers of the region.
Region-wise, South Africa is expected to witness a robust growth over the forecast period owing to the highest-in-the-region and still-increasing cases of COVID-19. Moreover, the increased awareness among the general population in the region towards the importance of getting checked for COVID-19 is expected to be a key driver for the market over the forecast period.
The COVID-19 research and diagnosis entails examining samples to determine if SARS-CoV-2 is present or has been present in the past. The virus or the antibodies formed in response to infection are detected by the two main branches.
Based on test type, the market is divided into:
By product, the market is divided into:

The market is divided based on business model into:
On the basis of end use, the industry can be divided into:
The regional markets for the product include Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, South Africa, and others.
Several countries in the region are working towards the production of kits and apps, along with monitoring programmes for the mass testing of the novel coronavirus. For instance, a COVID-19 mobile app has been developed recently, which uses bluetooth signals to identify COVID-19 patients. This centralised approach also offers comprehensive information on infection symptoms and risks. Moreover, such initiatives hasten the identification of contaminated patients, thus, positively affecting the diagnostics market in the region.
Over the forecast period, the expansion of testing sites with the establishment of walk- and drive- through testing centres, is expected to drive the growth of the regional market. These facilities are expected to reduce contagion risk and decrease waiting time for patients.
