Global $16.8 Bn Lateral Flow Assay Market Forecast, 2029: Rising Demand in the Food & Beverage Industry Presenting Lucrative Opportunities

Dublin, May 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Lateral Flow Assay Market by Product (Kit, Readers), Application (STI, COVID-19, Hep, TB, Cardiac marker, Pregnancy; Drug abuse, Vet Diaganostic, Food), Sample (Blood, Urine, Saliva), Technique (Sandwich, Competitive), End-user - Forecast to 2029" report has been added to's offering.

The global lateral flow assays market is valued at an estimated USD 10.8 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 16.8 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. The rising of the lateral flow assay market is because of the high prevalence of infectious diseases in many countries, growing demand for point-of-care testing, and rising use of home-based lateral flow assay devices, However the timorousness amongst the doctors and patients to adapt the existing diagnostic procedures and the low accuracy of lateral flow assays are some of the factors which are restraining the market.

The lateral flow readers segment accounted for the fastest growing share in the lateral flow assays market

The lateral flow readers is a part of the product segment in lateral flow assays market. Its large share can be attributed to as it enables the quantitative analysis of lateral flow strips in sandwich, competitive, as well as in the reverse-competitive test formats. The lateral flow readers measures the intensity of the test line to determine the number of analytes present in the sample and yield an assay result that is entirely quantitative. These can also take several readings from a single device or one read from several devices, which is then automatically analyzed statistically to provide a consolidated number. Lateral Flow readers can quantify, precisely collect, and transfer data. They are also very sensitive.

The urine sample accounted for the second largest segment in the lateral flow assays market

On the basis of the sample type, the clinical testing lateral flow assays market is segmented into blood, urine, saliva, and other samples. Urine samples accounted for the second largest market share in 2022. The increasing utilization of the urine samples in lateral flow tests for pregnancy, fertility testing, and drug of abuse testing are some of the factors which attribute to the growth of the segment.

Asia-Pacific market to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

During the forecast period, APAC is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate. The major factors are as a lot of manufacturers are significantly increasing their manufacturing especially in the Asia-Pacific region, which is exhibiting a low-cost manufacturing advantages also the availability of a skilled workforce in these regions. The major factors that are restricting the growth of the market in this region is the lack of awareness about the advantages of near-patient testing products due to lack of reimbursements, challenges related to locational remoteness, and low literacy rates.
