Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Testing Market - Global Outlook and Forecast 2020-2025
The global HPV testing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 12% during the period 2019–2025.
The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the HPV testing market during the forecast period:
- Increasing Prevalence of HPV Infections
- Emergence of Point-of-care Diagnostics/Rapid HPV Tests
- Rise of mRNA Test for Cervical Cancer Screening
- Increasing Demand for HPV Co-testing
The increased procurement of the latest-generation HPV testing analyzers and test kits, coupled with the high prevalence of HPV-related infections and cancers, especially cervical and vaginal, influences the growth of the global HPV testing market. Traditionally, cervical cancer screening was based on cervical cytology. However, in recent years, several countries and global health bodies have recommended the inclusion of HPV tests for cervical and pre-cancer screening programs, which is likely to boost the market.
The demand for new innovative testing consumables and instruments using advanced techniques such as the HPV mRNA test, which promotes accurate and sensitive diagnostic outcomes, is driving the market growth. Further, with the availability of positive clinical evidence, demonstrating the superiority of the latest generation advanced testing devices, end-users will become increasingly aware of clinical benefits and rapidly adopt these tests as an essential screening tool for cervical cancer screening. Therefore, the improvement in patient management, favorable government initiatives for primary screening, and the rising awareness of advanced testing in developed and developing economies are increasing the adoption globally.
The study considers the present scenario of the HPV testing market and its market dynamics for the period 2019−2025. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The study offers both the demand and supply aspects of the market. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent companies operating in the market.
HPV Testing Market: Segmentation
This research report includes detailed segmentation by products, applications, end-user, and geography. The consumables segment is growing due to the high adoption of advanced testing kits, reagents, and other related consumables to detect and screen cervical cancers globally. The segment is also growing at a fast rate due to the recurring purchase by end-users to perform HPV tests. These screening tests are likely to gain wide acceptance in emerging economies due to favorable government initiatives and the rise in consumer spending power. Therefore, market players are focusing on significant product launches in a low resource setting of emerging countries, thereby accelerating the segment growth. The instruments segment is growing at a slow pace as the procurement of analyzers is capital intensive and the purchasing decision depends on financial resources and budget allocations. However, the increasing availability of automated and compact analyzers/instruments has significantly improved the efficiency and quality of end-user operations. Automation and integration of several diagnostic platforms have led to the introduction of innovative diagnostic analyzers, thereby driving the growth during the forecast period.
The cervical application segment is growing on account of the rise in cervical cancer incidences. The increased focus of market players to launch screening products in low resource countries is expected to drive the cervical application segment during the upcoming years. HPV self-sampling is emerging with the rapid availability of these devices as a potential screening strategy, especially in the US, which is likely to contribute to the growth.
The application of HPV testing for vaginal cancer offers powerful negative predictive values. Therefore, the detection of infection with a high-risk HPV, which produce visible signs, is a powerful tool for vaginal cancer screening. Owing to the benefit of HPV testing, coupled with the rise in the vaginal cancer burden globally, vendors are offering innovative testing devices, which are driving the growth of the vaginal application segment.
The increased focus on enhancing the sensitivity of cervical screening to reduce false-negative diagnoses as well as improve the specificity of molecular tests to detect high-risk human papillomavirus is a major factor contributing to the growth of standard reference laboratories. The availability of standard reference laboratory services for the evaluation of HPV DNA and antibody detection in biological specimens through capacity-building worldwide is another reason for the growth of standard reference laboratories.
Healthcare professionals in hospitals use human papillomavirus testing as a screening procedure for the cervical and other related cancers. The market is likely to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period on account of the adoption of advanced testing products. A majority of patients with high-risk symptoms prefer visiting hospitals for diagnosis due to advanced infrastructure facilities available in major private and public hospitals.
The physicians’ office and clinic segment is expected to grow mainly on account of the growing prevalence of cervical cancers worldwide. These clinics perform laboratory screening through private offices for people with a high risk of cervical and other HPV associated cancers at an affordable cost. Another factor responsible for the rise of this segment is the availability of super-specialty expertise in these clinics.
