Influenza Tests Devices Market Trends



  • Rising prevalence of influenza and the growing geriatric population is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for Influenza Tests Devices is being driven by the rising prevalence of influenza and the growing geriatric population. Epidemic influenza poses a significant public health challenge each season. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that influenza has a severe impact on three to five million individuals annually, resulting in 250,000 to 500,000 deaths. Children experience the highest attack rate, while complications such as hospitalization and death are most prevalent in the elderly.


The increasing geriatric population raises the likelihood of a higher incidence of flu. Consequently, the WHO recommends vaccination for individuals aged 65 and above to prevent influenza cases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. witnessed 9 million flu cases, 4 million influenza-related medical visits, 100,000 flu-related hospitalizations, and 5,000 flu-related deaths during the 2021–2022 season. Similar to previous seasons preceding the COVID-19 outbreak, 83% of fatalities were among older individuals. The weakened immune system of older adults makes them more susceptible to the flu virus.


As a result, it is anticipated that throughout the projection period, demand for the Influenza Tests Devices Market will increase due to the rising prevalence of influenza, and the growing geriatric population. Thus, driving the Influenza Tests Devices Market revenue.


Influenza Tests Devices Market Segment Insights


Influenza Tests Devices Market Tests Insights


 The Influenza Tests Devices Market segmentation, based on Tests includes Influenza Multiplex NAATs, Influenza Antigen Tests, and Influenza Lowplex Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs). The influenza multiplex NAATs segment dominated the market, accounting for 58% of market revenue (0.06 Billion). Second-generation Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs) typically exhibit enhanced sensitivity, often surpassing 95%, and offer rapid test times ranging from 5 to 90 minutes. The potential advantages of rapid NAAT Point-of-Care Tests (POCTs) for individuals include early initiation of antiviral treatment, with optimal benefits observed when administered within 48 hours, as well as a reduction in the unnecessary use of antibiotics, minimizing exposure to unwanted side effects for patients.

Europe's Influenza Tests Devices Market accounts for the second-largest market share as the anticipated high prevalence of influenza is set to be a driving factor for the regional market throughout the forecast period. In the 2022−2023 season, sentinel primary care providers in the EU/EEA tested 81,800 specimens for the influenza virus, with 19,538 (24%) testing positive. This marked a more than four-fold increase in influenza virus detections from sentinel sources compared to the 2021−2022 season and represented the highest number of detections over the past four seasons. For instance, during the pre-pandemic season of 2019−2020, a total of 11,978 specimens tested positive. Further, the German Influenza Tests Devices Market held the largest market share, and the UK Influenza Tests Devices Market was the fastest-growing market in the European region


The Asia-Pacific Influenza Tests Devices Market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR from 2023 to 2032. The regional market is poised for rapid growth, driven by increasing awareness and acceptance of influenza diagnostic kits. In 2021, the incidence of influenza virus infections in China declined significantly to approximately 47.4 per 100,000 people from the peak observed in 2019. Notably, the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare released figures for September 11–17, based on reports from 5,000 designated medical institutions, revealing 34,665 influenza cases—an increase of 1.57 times compared to the previous week, averaging 7.03 cases per institution. Additionally, the growing governmental support for the approval of new diagnostic tests for influenza contributes to the expansion of the influenza diagnostics market in the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, China’s Influenza Tests Devices Market held the largest market share, and the Indian Influenza Tests Devices Market was the fastest-growing market in the Asia-Pacific region.
