Market Synopsis of Global Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Test Market Market scenario Tissue transglutaminase (tTG) test is used for the diagnosis of certain autoimmune diseases, which is mostly restricted to celiac disease. In celiac disease, gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats) is seen as a foreign invader and is attacked by the immune system. This is followed by the production of antibodies directed against the enzyme Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) (a calcium dependent proteolysis restricting enzyme), which is normally present in intestines. Immunoglobulin A (IgA) and immunoglobulin G (IgG) are the antibodies responsible for the autoimmune responses. These (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG can be analyzed for diagnostic purposes. The IgA form of tTG antibody is more frequently exploited for the diagnosis of celiac disease because it is synthesized in the small intestine where gluten causes inflammation and irritation in sensitive people. On the other hand, (tTG) IgG can also be used. Its application in testing is marked when patient is unable to produce normal IgA as it is less specific to celiac disease. Traditionally, mucosal biopsies can be performed.
The major factor that propels the global tissue transglutaminase testing market is the increasing prevalence of celiac disease. According to the World Gastroenterology Organization in 2016, 1% of the total population in western countries was diagnosed with the celiac disease and the prevalence have substantially increased across the globe. According to Celiac Disease Foundation in 2016, hospitalization have increased by 600% from 1998 to 2013 in the U.S. Similar trends in the European countries are observed. All these factors will boost the global tissue tranglutaminase (tTG) testing market.
Increasing prevalence of autoimmune diseases mainly celiac disease, increasing geriatric global pool, and increasing investments in the healthcare drive the growth of the market. Low healthcare expenditure in developing regions, costs considerations, and false positive diagnosis in geriatric population marked due to conditions such as diarrhoea etc restrain the growth of the market.
The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.5% during the forecast period.
