North America Cervical Cancer Diagnostic Testing Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Type (PAP Testing, HPV Testing, Colposcopy, Cervical Biopsies, Cystoscopy, and Others) and Service Provider (Diagnostics and Research Laboratories, Hospitals and Clinics, Specialty Clinics, and Home Care Services)
The North America cervical cancer diagnostic testing market is expected to grow from US$ 2,250.53 million in 2021 to US$ 3,159.09 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2028. Precancerous changes can delay the disease progression, thus offering an extended time window for its treatment. However, due to the lack of awareness or access to diagnostic services, many cases are detected in the later stages of the illness. Human papillomavirus (HPV), typically transmitted through sexual contact, is one of the primary causes of cervical cancer. Out of more than 100 HPV strains reported, 13 are high-risk or carcinogenic strains. The HPV test detects human papillomavirus in cervical cells. The active gene E6 or E7 determines whether an HPV strain is of high risk or low risk. Other screening methods employed in low-resource areas of several countries include HPV DNA testing and visual inspection. Regular cervical screening aids in the early detection of cervical cancer, lowering the mortality rate from the disease. According to National Cancer Institute, most women aged 21-65 should undergo the Pap test while women from the age group 30-65 should undergo the Pap and HPV tests every three years. The HPV test dominates the cervical cancer screening market in terms of revenue. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, thereby driving the North America market.
North America, especially the US, is highly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The chaotic situation was created in the medical industry across the countries, increased the demand for diagnosing and therapeutic devices have dramatically increased in the hospitals. For instance, the need for ventilators, respirators, and in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests has risen drastically in hospitals across the countries in the region. The FDA has increased its efforts to support people's health and has imposed several guidelines for hospitals and medical device companies. Various companies also enhanced their research and development activities for diagnostics tests and therapeutic devices. Due to the fear of infection of COVID-19, women are hesitating to take cervical cancer tests, such as the PAP test, biopsies, colonoscopy, and others, as it generally requires an actual visit to the healthcare. This trend among the patients is expected to affect the region's cervical cancer diagnostic testing market over the next few years. However, healthcare providers are now offering at-home testing services for the initial diagnosis through point-of-care devices and kits. The market players are actively involved in organic and inorganic developments. Thus, the outbreak of COVID-19 has shown a remarkable impact on market growth in the region.

The PAP smear test can detect transformations in the cervical cells that can cause cancer in the future. It is generally done at an intersection with a pelvic exam in women patients older than 30 years. In some cases, it is performed in combination with human papillomavirus (HPV) test.
