The diagnosis of HIV detects the presence of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). This is done by carrying out certain tests in serum, saliva, or urine samples. These tests may detect antibodies, antigens, or RNA. The increasing awareness about HIV, confidentiality of the test, and appropriate counseling increases the demand for this process.
The major factors that contribute to the growth of the global HIV diagnosis market includes the increasing prevalence of HIV/AIDS worldwide, increasing number of blood transfusions & blood donations that cause infections, which lead to HIV, benefits offered by point-of-care instruments & kits, technological advancements, and increasing government initiatives. However, high costs of Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) and lack of mandates for NAT in developing countries are the major factors that restrain the growth of this market. Recent advancements of simple rapid assays with visual testing and easy handling home sample collection techniques that can be used by health care workers and consumers at home has carved ways to expand this market.
This market has been classified by technology into antibody tests, viral load tests, CD4 tests, and early infant diagnosis tests. On the basis of application it has been segmented into diagnostic laboratories, home care settings, hospitals, and blood banks. Geographically, the market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA.
