Immunoassay Kits & Reagents Enjoy Over 60% Share of Global Botulinum Immunodiagnostics Market: Persistence Market Research Study

Published On : Aug 12, 2022

The botulism outbreak due to the consumption of contaminated or spoiled food is a public health emergency. The threat of bioterrorism through equal distribution of botulinum neurotoxins in food sources or aerosolization gives rise to public health concerns. To identify the source of contamination as well as to perform epidemiological analysis of the outbreak, it is important to have rapid, yet reliable detection methods to support surveillance. Due to these factors, the botulinum immunodiagnostics market was valued at US$ 385.2 Mn in 2021 and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 2.2% over the forecast period (2022-2032).

Increased food production on a large scale and development in food products and processes, combined with supply chain improvements, have increased the risk of large-scale outbreaks of botulism due to accidental contamination of the source. Suitable assays and methods for the detection of such contamination have increased the demand for botulinum immunodiagnostics.

Furthermore, botulinum immunodiagnostic assays are used in the pharmaceutical industry to check the potential and safety of testing botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) in drug products to avoid an outbreak of botulinum infection.

Stringent regulatory rules of government authorities for the production of kits and instruments are a key hurdle for botulinum immunodiagnostics market growth. Government authorities such as the FDA take a longer time for the approval of testing kits and instruments, which is a problem for manufacturers to bring a new product into the market. Moreover, the inaccuracy of some tests further hampers product growth, thereby restraining the market.
