Regional Analysis

Global COVID-19 Diagnostics Market, based on region, has been divided into the Europe, Americas, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.

The Europe region is likely to dominate the global COVID-19 diagnostics market. This can be attributed to the high number of infected patients in the region. According to European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, as of 19 May 2020, 1 317 267 cases have been reported in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) and the UK. Moreover, the The high COVID-19 morbidity and mortality observed among residents in long-term care facilities (LTCF) in EU/EEA countries pose a major challenge for disease prevention and control in such settings, which raises the demand for the wide availability of diagnostics for immediate detection of COVID-19 cases.

The American market for COVID-19 diagnostics is estimated to be the second largest during the review period. Rapid outbreak of highly infectious acute respiratory disease COVID-19 and the presence of major manufacturers is expected to boost the growth of the regional market. As per the current data i.e. on March 31st, 2020; the U.S. recorded 180,789 of infected cases. Additionally, rising product launches by major players is further fueling the market growth.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market owing to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, government & private funding for research & development for effective diagnosis. For instance, on 8 April 2020, the Department of Science and Technology (DST), India announced that approximately USD 26.42 million to various scientific institutions, industries, and startups to build innovative solutions to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The above factors are expected to boost the demand of testing kits, positively affecting the growth of the Asia-Pacific COVID-19 diagnostics market.

The market in the Middle East & Africa is expected to witness steady growth due to increasing COVID-19 cases and rising initiatives by governments to improve patient care.
