Global Swab and Viral Transport Medium Market Outlook

The global swab and viral transport medium market size was valued at USD 8.82 billion in 2023, driven by the increasing awareness among government and them realizing the potential of swab and viral transport medium across the globe. The market size is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period of 2024-2032 to achieve a value of USD 14.66 billion by 2032.

 

Swab and Viral Transport Medium: Introduction

Viral transport medium (VTM) is a solution used for maintaining virus specimens after collection, so that they can be transferred and examined in a lab later. Virus samples and RNA virus samples, in particular, are prone to deterioration unless kept in a liquid nitrogen or ultra-low temperature freezer. However, because of their large size, heavy weight, and in the case of freezers, considerable energy consumption, such cooling equipment is rarely available in the field. Consequently, the necessity for VTM, a chemical preservative, that may be applied at room temperature, exists. Saline solution, phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), and foetal bovine serum are examples of possible chemical components.

 

Global Swab and Viral Transport Medium Market Analysis

This rise in the prevalence of several infectious diseases around the world has caused an increase in demand for swabs and transport mediums, which in turn has led to the market's expansion. The market for swabs and viral transport medium is also expanding as these rising infectious diseases have the potential to cause a variety of diseases in humans which further requires the swab and viral transport medium for diagnosis purposes.

 

Due to the rising demand for specimen collection kits and diagnosis, the prevalence of different infectious diseases is anticipated to propel the global swab and viral transport medium market growth. As the pandemic expanded widely over the world, the need for laboratory testing of the samples and the detection of the infectious virus increased. Additionally, the government approvals for the usage of transport media are also a contributing factor for the growth of the market.
