Hepatitis C Testing Market Research, 2031

The global hepatitis c testing market was valued at $1.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.3 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2031. Hepatitis C is a viral infection that causes liver inflammation, sometimes leading to serious liver damage. The hepatitis C virus (HCV) spreads through contaminated blood. It can be diagnosed with an antibody tests, genotype tests, and viral load tests. The increase in blood transfusion and donations rate contributes to the rise in the prevalence of hepatitis C. The hepatitis C virus can be transferred through blood transfusion; hence hepatitis testing is mandatory for blood banks.

Hepatitis C Testing Market

Furthermore, the increasing rate of hepatitis C and technological advancements in hepatitis C testing drive the growth of the Hepatitis C Testing Market Size. For instance, according to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO) published on June 2022, globally, an estimated 58 million people have chronic hepatitis C virus infection, with about 1.5 million new infections occurring per year. There are an estimated 3.2 million adolescents and children with chronic hepatitis C infection.
