Analyst Review

Lateral flow tests, or lateral flow immunochromatographic assays, are simple cellulose-based medical devices used to detect the presence of a target analyte in sample without use of specialized equipment where preliminary screening tests need to be conducted. These are useful especially in countries with limited resources. 

The LFIA based rapid test market is expected to exhibit significant market growth during the forecast period, owing to increase in prevalence of growth in the incidence rate of infectious diseases and rise in government initiatives for preliminary screening of infectious diseases, high demand for home-based healthcare rapid tests, and affordability of these kits in the developing economies drives the market growth. However, stringent government regulations for the approval of rapid tests and recall of several products due to false results have hampered the market growth. 

North America accounted for approximately one-half of the global market share in 2018, and is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. This was attributed to rise in adoption of LFIA based rapid test, wide availability of LFIA based rapid test system, and supportive reimbursement policies in healthcare system. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to experience the highest growth rate during the forecast period, owing to rise in target population along with increase in adoption of LFIA based rapid test systems.
