RSV Diagnostics Market Overview:

Over the projected period, the RSV diagnostics market is predicted to grow in importance. During the projected period of 2020–2030, it is predicted that the worldwide RSV diagnostics market will grow at a CAGR of 10.7%. RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) is a virus that causes illness in the lower respiratory tract. RSV is a leading cause of serious respiratory infection in preterm newborns and children under five years old. It can cause symptoms ranging from a slight cold to bronchiolitis and pneumonia.

The primary drivers driving the market's growth include the rising incidence of respiratory infections, the growing newborn population base, the rising need for in-vitro diagnostics, and the rising demand for point-of-care facilities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), pneumonia caused 16 percent of all fatalities in children under the age of five in 2015, with 9, 20,136 children dying.

A mild Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) affects young children's upper respiratory systems. Coughing, sore throats, wheezing, and runny noses frequently characterize RSV. Rapid protein detection relies heavily on antigen-antibody reactions. Antibodies can be exceedingly specific, binding to only a small portion of an antigen, and can distinguish between very similar antigens. They detect proteins based on both their structure and content. Due to their weakened immune systems, older persons are more susceptible than young adults to significant consequences from RSV. The primary diagnostic procedure is a physical examination by the physician. In extreme cases, the doctor does tests, including molecular diagnostics for virus identification, serology tests, and quick antigen detection tests. 

Initial signs of respiratory syncytial viruses (RVs) include a moderate cold with symptoms such as congestion, a runny nose, coughing, sore throat, and fever. Young newborns may exhibit signs of exhaustion, irritability, and respiratory issues. Under typical circumstances, these symptoms subside after a few days. The rising incidence of respiratory syncytial virus infections worldwide, increased investments, technical developments, product approvals and introductions, government efforts, and other important strategies the leading market players take are the factors driving the studied industry's growth. Advanced methods like bio- and nanotechnology (PCR) are helping to develop current RSV detection technologies, such as western blot, enzyme-linked immunosorbent test (ELISA), direct immunofluorescence, and real-time polymerase chain reaction. In addition, the governments of several nations subsidize research and development projects to develop new therapeutics.

The appetite for the RSV diagnostics market is driven by factors such as the increased frequency of chronic diseases, such as respiratory disorders, in the neonatal population, the rising number of new newborns, and parental awareness raised by various health organizations. During the projected period, the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) diagnostic market is anticipated to expand due to the rising need for point-of-care testing to diagnose RSV-infected individuals and developments in the field of markers such as proteomics and genomics. Furthermore, the market for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) diagnostics is anticipated to grow due to the increased prevalence of RSV infections.

Regional Market Summary

Global RSV Diagnostics Market, by Region Market Share, 2017 (%)

 RSV Diagnostics Market

Source: MRFR Analysis

The global RSV diagnostics market consists of four regions: the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. The Americas is expected to dominate the RSV diagnostics market owing to the increasing incidences of RSV, rising healthcare expenditure, and technological developments in molecular diagnostics. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, annually in the United States, more than 57,000 children younger than five years old are hospitalized due to RSV infection.

Europe is anticipated to hold the second position in the global RSV diagnostics market. It is expected that the rising automation in vitro diagnostics, increasing occurrence of RSV diseases, and funding provided by the government are anticipated to drive the European market. For instance, according to the data stated by the University of Oxford, it is anticipated that over 30,000 babies and children below five years of age are hospitalized due to RSV in the UK every year.

The Asia-Pacific RSV diagnostics market consists of countries namely China, Japan, Republic of Korea, India, Australia and Rest of Asia-Pacific. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region due to growing infectious disease burden including RSV infection, growing healthcare expenditure, and rising demand for RSV disease diagnosis. Moreover, China, India, and Japan are expected to be the fastest growing markets in the region due to the developing healthcare systems and growing numbers of government initiatives.

The Middle East and Africa is likely to hold the least share in the global RSV diagnostics market. However, growing awareness among the population and high investments by private market players, rising incidences of RSV in children in this region can boost the growth of the market.
