Global Bacterial & Viral Specimen Collection Market Segment Insights
Bacterial specimen collection segment to dominate the market
Based on products, the global bacterial & viral specimen collection market is bifurcated into bacterial specimen collection and viral specimen collection. The bacterial specimen collection segment is further sub-segmented into swabs, blood collection kits, and other consumables. Similarly, the viral specimen collection segment is also sub-segmented into swabs, viral transport media, blood collection kits, and other consumables.
The bacterial specimen collection segment is expected to dominate the market with a high CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the increased prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) as the latent TB remains a major burden affecting about one-quarter of the world's population. The widespread diagnosis of TB has accelerated the use of various bacterial specimen collection materials.
However, the viral specimen collection segment is anticipated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period owing to various advancement in detection of virus infections.
Diagnostics segment to constitute a large revenue share
On the basis of applications, the market is bifurcated into diagnostics and research. The diagnostics segment is expected to constitute a large revenue share of the market during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to rise in the number of FDA-approved clinical transport media, swabs, and specimen collection kits.
The emphasis of government agencies is focusing on the preventing of the transmission of bacterial and viral infections that have potential to become pandemics. As a result, several governments involve in launching a massive campaign to combat tuberculosis, pneumonia, adenovirus, rhinovirus, and coronavirus. All these efforts by government bodies are expected to propel the growth of this segment.
Hospitals & clinics segment to exhibit a rapid CAGR
Based on end-users, the global bacterial & viral specimen collection market is segmented into hospitals & clinics, home test, and research laboratories. The hospitals & clinics segment accounted for a large revenue share of the market owing to increase in the number of patients with respiratory viruses and bacterial infections. As a result, rising demand for antimicrobial drug therapies is expected to boost the market.
Furthermore, the use of bacterial and viral specimen collection products in hospitals and clinics are increasing rapidly due to an increase in the number of cases of healthcare-associated infections in acute care hospitals. On the other hand, the home test segment is expected to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period due to the rising availability of home-based diagnostic tests.
North America dominated the market
In terms of regions, the market is classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market accounting for a key market share in 2020 and is projected to hold a major share in the coming years. In this region, there is a high degree of knowledge about disease transmission, diagnosis, and effective management of microbial infections.
As a result, several diagnostic and testing devices are widely used, resulting in a greater revenue share for this region. The investments made by government agencies to promote product production have an additional impact on sales growth. However, the market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period due to wide demand for bacterial and viral specimen collection. Increasing large-scale coronavirus testing in region, particularly in India, due to second-wave of the pandemic presents another key factor driving the regional market.
