Market Synopsis of Africa Malaria Diagnosis & Treatment Market:
Malaria is an infectious disease caused by parasitic protozoa of the Plasmodium type. The symptoms include fever, fatigue, vomiting, and severe headaches and may lead to seizures, coma, or even death if untreated. Malaria is primarily a disease of the tropical and subtropical regions. The carrier of malaria is the female anopheles mosquito and hence there is a seasonal variation in the cases of malaria. Most cases of malaria are caused by P. falciparum because other types of plasmodium such as P. vivax, P. ovale, and P. malariae generally cause a milder form of malaria.
According to World Health Organization (WHO), the global incidence of malaria between 2010 and 2015, fell by 21% and the malaria mortality fell by 29%. However the African region carries a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden and accounted for 90% of malaria cases and 92% of malaria deaths worldwide and sub-Saharan Africa accounted for 76% of malaria cases and 75% deaths globally.
Thus, unmet medical needs is the single most important driver of malaria. Other important market drivers are the hot and humid climatic conditions of certain parts of Africa, presence of population groups at higher risk of contracting malaria such as infants, children under 5 years of age, patients with low immunity such as those with HIV/AIDS, mobile populations and travelers.
The growth of government programs against malaria and the support given by international bodies such as WHO is also a market driver. The market barriers include high cost of imported malaria diagnostic kits, low penetration of healthcare in Africa, low per capita income, low number of healthcare professionals in Africa etc. The political causes include massive corruption, low political power of citizens especially in nondemocratic nations, civil war in regions such as Malawi etc.
Taking all factors into consideration, we expect the Africa malaria diagnosis market to reach around $ 2418.92 million from $ 550 million in 2017, by the end of the forecast period at a CAGR of ~ 28.0 %. While the malaria treatment market will grow by a CAGR of 8.1% to reach around $ 7180.7 million from $ 4500.0 million in 2016.
