Global Dengue Testing Market - 2021-2028
Dengue Testing Market Overview
The global dengue testing market size was valued at US$ XX billion in 2019 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Dengue is the most serious infectious disease that is caused by flavivirus, spreading through aedes mosquitoes. It is the most quickly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world. The blood testing detects dengue virus or antibodies produced in response to the dengue infection. Hence, to control the spread of dengue fever, there are different diagnostic tests introduced to decrease the number of deaths and to increase focus on prevention and cure.
Dengue Testing Market Dynamics
The dengue testing market growth is driven by the rising incidences of dengue-related infections, increasing development of low-cost and reliable dengue testing kits and climate change is increasing the prevalence of dengue fever across the globe.
The rising incidences of dengue-related infections is expected to drive growth in the forecast period.
The total incidence of dengue and the explosive outbreaks of dengue have been increasing dramatically over the last several years. As per the Pan American Health Organization, in the region of the Americas in 2019, a total of 3,139,335 cases of dengue have been reported, equivalent to 321.58 cases per 100,000 population, including 1,538 deaths. Of the total cases, 1,367,353 were laboratory confirmed, and 28,169 were classified as severe dengue.
Although the full global burden of the disease is uncertain, the initiation of activities to record all dengue cases partly explains the sharp increase in the number of cases reported in recent years. Therefore, the number of cases is increasing as the disease spreads to new areas, but explosive outbreaks are occurring. Among the travelers returning from low- and middle-income countries, dengue is the second most diagnosed cause of fever after malaria. Therefore, the rising prevalence of the dengue virus has raised the demand for more diagnostic kits, which is expected to drive the dengue testing market in the near future.
Climate change is increasing the prevalence of dengue fever across the globe.
The government and healthcare professionals advise people to prevent dengue-carrying mosquitoes by practicing tried and tested prevention measures, i.e., search and destroy, self-protect, seek early consultation, and say yes to fogging, also termed the “4S” method. To raise awareness regarding the 4S method, the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) conducted a series of campaigns on dengue prevention nationwide for the whole month of June 2018, the dengue awareness month. There is also a change in the climate of European countries that has been a great impact on vector distribution and potential disease transmission. This climate change is likely to increase the burden of dengue fever, and this, in turn, may propel the growth of the market for dengue testing.
Limited availability of effective diagnostic tools in lower economic regions are likely to hinder the market growth
Presently, the diagnostic test kits available for testing dengue are less effective due to the unavailability of effective diagnostic tools and the high price of existing test kits. As a result, companies operating in the market are currently focusing on developing cost-effective and reliable test methods for dengue testing. Presently, many methods for detecting the dengue virus are still dependent on cell culture, and mice inoculation and such type methods are slow and costly.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Dengue viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 virus cause similar symptoms in the early stages. So, most of the people are confusing it to be dengue at getting themselves tested for dengue too. As per the article published in the Journal of Medical Virology in March 2021, dengue has shown an increasing trend in the number of cases in the country, therefore requiring urgent public policies to curb the disease.
Dengue Testing Market Segment Analysis
The ELISA-based tests segment is expected to hold the largest share in this market segment.
The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is one of the most common and widely accepted methods for diagnosing dengue. The test measures the presence of anti-DENV IgM or IgG antibodies in patient serum. The early and timely diagnosis and management of dengue can reduce the risk of morbidity and mortality rates from severe forms of dengue disease and decrease the risk of wider outbreaks.
ELISA being the standard method, can detect NS1 antigens and differentiate between the four dengue virus serotypes. ELISA kits have superior sensitivity when compared to other testing methods. Because of their high sensitivity and efficiency, ELISAs have become the recommended diagnostic choice when laboratories with trained personnel and equipment are available.
Technological advancement in this segment, such as full test kits offered by several major players in the market, drives the market's growth. For example, PANBIO DENGUE IGG INDIRECT ELISA, a test kit offered by Abbott, is used to detect IgG antibodies to dengue antigen serotypes (1, 2, 3, and 4) in serum as an aid to the clinical laboratory diagnosis of patients with clinical symptoms and past exposure consistent with dengue fever. Another test kit offered by InBios International Inc. is DENV Detect NS1 ELISA Kit, which is also used for the early detection of dengue virus (DENV) NS1 antigen in human serum. Thus, considering all the factors mentioned above, the market is expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period.
The diagnostic center's segment is expected to hold the largest share in this market segment.
The diagnostic center's segment can be attributed to the fact that most dengue treatments are home-based, ascribing to the development of only mild forms of illness. Thus, individuals prefer diagnostic centers for dengue testing. For instance, in September 2020, DiaSys launched QDx Dengue NS1, an NS1 Detection kit for early diagnosis of dengue virus.
Dengue Testing Market Geographical Analysis
Asia Pacific region holds the largest market share of the global dengue testing market.
Asia Pacific is found to be the fastest growing market in the global dengue testing market as there are millions of cases of dengue infection every year. The number of dengue cases is increasing each year. For instance, according to the article published in 2019 by Qinlong Jing et al, it was found that, in recent years, southern China has been experiencing a high frequency of transmission and recurring epidemics of dengue, especially in Guangzhou, which accounts for 69.2% of reported cases in mainland China.
Moreover, according to a report published by the Directorate of National Vector Borne Disease Control Program 2019, a total of 67,377 cases of dengue and 48 deaths due to the vector-borne disease have been reported from across India as of October 2019. Dengue is the most prevalent and rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease.
Moreover, the recent dengue outbreak in various regions in Asia-Pacific indicates that there may be increased risks for future dengue outbreaks in these countries, due to the influx of dengue viruses from overseas combined with the increase in vector population and the expansion of the habitats caused by climate changes, resulting in the rising cases of dengue in Asia-Pacific.
According to the article published in 2018 by Y Kajimoto et al, it was found that the average number of dengue patients is about 274 per year in Japan, and the average economic burden was approximately USD 830,626 per year. The economic burden of dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever per patient was about USD 2,093 and USD 11,536, respectively in Japan. Thus, considering all the above-mentioned factors, as the number of patients is rising in this region, the testing of the dengue is also expected to rise and boost the growth of the market.
