Global paper diagnostics market forecast

The medical cases of infectious diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV is increasing on a global level. Research analysis in the global paper diagnostics market identifies that the increasing prevalence of infectious and lifestyle associated diseases will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the paper diagnostics market size. The analysis of infectious agent requires paper diagnostic test using molecular testing or assays. Paper diagnostic is also widely used to detect urinary infections through urinalysis. The lack of medical infrastructure and low awareness in emerging economies such as Africa, Saudi Arabia, India, and South Korea is driving the incidence of infectious diseases. This, in turn, will boost the application of paper diagnostics for primary testing. According to the paper diagnostics industry analysis, Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of close to 7% by 2021.

The rising awareness about the rapid testing of infectious diseases in the emerging markets such as Mexico, Brazil, and Chile is driving the growth prospects for the global paper diagnostics market in the Americas. The adoption of diagnostic paper products for Zika virus, Ebola, and use of nano-biosensors will continue to increase in the region throughout the estimated period due to the presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and high patient awareness.
