Growing incidence of influenza is increasing the need for effective diagnostic procedures, worldwide. Overall population is prone to influenza, but paediatric and geriatric populations are at high risk. Elderly population (65 or older) with deteriorated immune system, is afflicted by significant comorbidities and complications from flu.

According to CDC, influenza affected 9.3 million to 49.0 million people in the U.S. alone since 2010. Also, according to the Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC), in 2018, around 55,000 patients suffered from influenza in Canada. The rapid influenza diagnostic tests market is anticipated to be valued at US$ 1.6 Bn by the end of 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period (2019-2029).

Extensive Government Funding for Development of Rapid Influenza Diagnostic Tests

With the rise in epidemics and pandemics since the last few years, government agencies in some countries are providing funds for development of innovative rapid influenza diagnostic tests.

For instance, Diassess Inc., a contagious disease testing company, received a funding of US$ 21.9 Mn by U.S. government for the development of its breakthrough flu diagnostic technology for use in physician offices and eventually in patients’ homes. Such government measures are expected to support growth of the rapid influenza diagnostic tests market on a global scale.

Rapid Turnaround of Results Allowing Optimal Treatment Decisions

According to WHO, every year, onset of influenza season leads to increased use of antibiotics leading to an elevated risk of antibiotic resistance in the body. Devices used at the point-of-care have rapid turn-around times, which aids in preparing a focused and effective treatment plan depending on the test results.

Rapid influenza diagnostic tests have minimal turnaround time, some providing results in less than 15 minutes. Thus, implementation of rapid influenza diagnostic tests helps forestalling the over-prescription of antibiotics and also prevent the root cause of increasing bacterial resistance and its adverse outcomes. Such beneficial factors remain major contributors toward rapid influenza diagnostic tests market expansion.
