Global Autoimmune Disease Diagnostics Market 2017-2021
About the Autoimmune Disease Diagnostics Market
Abnormal immune responses of the innate immune system can cause autoimmune diseases, which can damage body tissues and lead to abnormal organ functions. Immunological complications due to physiological processes within the human body lead to autoimmune diseases. These diseases are characterized by chronic inflammatory processes that activate the innate immune system and the production of antibodies that destroy host tissues. These inflammatory processes can be caused by genetic or environmental factors or infections.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global autoimmune disease diagnostics market to grow at a CAGR of 6.39% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global autoimmune disease diagnostics market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, we use the revenue generated from the sales of various diagnostic tests for autoimmune diseases.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Autoimmune Disease Diagnostics Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global autoimmune disease diagnostics market: Abbott Laboratories, Beckman Coulter, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inova Diagnostics, Siemens Healthcare, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AESKU Diagnostics, Alere, Autoimmune Technologies, Bio-Diagnostics, bioMérieux, Diarect, DiaSorin, Erba Diagnostics, Euro Diagnostica, EUROIMMUN, Exagen Diagnostics, Gold Standard Diagnostics, HUMAN Diagnostics, ImmunArray, KRONUS, Menarini, Myriad Genetics, Omega Diagnostics, ORGENTEC Diagnostika, Protagen, Qiagen, Quest Diagnostics, Roche Diagnostics, Seramun Diagnostica, SQI Diagnostics, and Tecan.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend contributing to market growth is the shift from monoplex to multiplex testing. The focus on multiplex testing is increasing, particularly in the area of in vitro diagnostics. Singleplex systems can analyze a single analyte from test samples for disease diagnosis. On the other hand, multiplexed assays can analyze samples by detecting multiple analytes from a single or multiple samples, offering a high-throughput solution. These multiplexed systems are cost-effective, require limited labor, and have increased efficiency and turnaround time in the delivery of results.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the discovery of novel biomarkers. Autoimmune diseases are of various types, with each individual exhibiting different symptoms if affected by at least two disease types. This makes it difficult for physicians to diagnose disease types. Biomarkers linked to autoimmune diseases are currently being discovered and studied, which has led to the development of biomarker-specific new diagnostic products. For instance, in 2013, researchers in the University of Cincinnati, US, identified various protein-based biomarkers associated with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the lack of skilled lab technicians. Autoimmune disease diagnostics involve analysis and presentation, increasing the need for a thorough understanding and knowledge of autoimmune diseases. They also increase the need for a thorough understanding about biomarker-specific assays and the working of automated tests. However, most hospitals and research centers do not have technicians who are thorough with these automated systems. This has increased the demand for technicians who can operate the equipment and immunodiagnostic tests. This has also led many medical facilities to avoid using automated systems due to the unavailability of skilled technicians.
