Global Immunoassay Market Size and Forecast:

Intense developments in the field of genomics and proteomics has expanded the database of biomarkers used by industry players to develop new assays that cascade the onset of a disease or disorder. The global immunoassays market is set to register impressive growth, expanding at a healthy 6.0% CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2026).

Key players are investing in the development of novel immunoassays in the infectious diseases domain, with increasing database on genetics and biomarkers of various infectious pathogens. Immunoassay analyzers such as enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) and immunofluorescence assay (IFA) are preferred choices for the diagnosis of infectious diseases.

Immunoassay Manufacturers: Strategies

Rising demand for early detection and diagnosis of autoimmune disorders has also augmented development of new immunoassay systems by leading players in the in-vitro diagnostics industry. For instance, in December 2017, Innova diagnostics launched the next-generation EIA & IFA Processor QUANTA-Lyser 3000 for the diagnosis of autoimmune disorders in clinical laboratories. In addition, the current COVID-19 pandemic has also prompted key players to invest heavily in the development of immunoassays to eradicate the SARS-CoV-2 virus. For instance, Bio-Rad Corporation announced the launch of a blood-immunoassay kit for the identification of antibodies to the novel coronavirus in April 2020.

Immunoassay Market Segmentation

Immunoassay Market Share by Technology
The chemiluminescence immunoassays (CLIA) segment was valued at US$ 7.8 Bn in 2017, and is expected to reach US$ 14 Bn by 2026, expanding at a strong CAGR of 6.6%. This is followed by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) segment, which is projected to reach a value of US$ 8.9 Bn and growing at a rate of 5.8% in the same period.

Growth of the CLIA segment is attributed to burgeoning investments by key market players in emerging markets. This is especially the case in the Asia-Pacific region, where the number of infectious diseases is on the rise. Moreover, affordability and easy availability and compatibility with various in-house IVD reagents is projected to drive the ELISA market forward during the forecast period.

Immunoassay Market Share by Product

The consumables segment is poised to expand at the highest CAGR of 6.2% between 2020 and 2026, attributed to widespread adoption of immunoassay tests for the diagnosis of infectious diseases and endocrinal disorders. The segment was valued at US$ 13 Bn in 2017 and is expected to increase to US$ 23 Bn by 2026. The analyzers segment is poised to capture around 1/5th of the global immunoassays market share. Availability of multiplexed and integrated analyzers with high throughput and reduced waiting time is anticipated to drive the growth of the analyzers segment in the forecast period.

Immunoassay Market Share by Application

Endocrine disorders have registered a significant uptick in recent years. As a consequence, healthcare providers have started using immunoassay machines to treat the same. The endocrinology segment is poised to expand the fastest, at a healthy CAGR of 6.5% by 2026, capturing nearly one-fifth of the total market share. The infectious diseases segment shall grow at an equivalent CAGR, capturing nearly 30% of the global immunoassays market.

Endocrinology tests have a wide range of applications, which include but are not limited to immunoassay analyzer testing, anti-TSH receptors testing, fertility testing and women’s health testing. Such widespread applications are important growth catalysts for the segment. Similarly, rising number of infectious diseases is augmenting the growth of the infectious diseases segment. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has especially seen a burgeoning trend of immunoassay types to ascertain the prognosis of the disease as well as finding potential antibodies to eradicate the deadly virus.

Immunoassay Market Share by Region

The North American immunoassay market is poised to dominate, accounting for nearly 40% of the total share and registering a CAGR of 6.0% across the forecast period. A growing trend of mergers & acquisitions is observed among in-vitro diagnostic and life sciences players in North America. This is anticipated to largely propel the region’s growth in the future. These players are looking to strengthen their product portfolio by venturing into various medical specialty domains.

Asia-Pacific promises to emerge as the fastest growing region, recording an impressive CAGR of 7.0% throughout the forecast period. The region is anticipated to capture nearly a quarter of the global immunoassay market. This growth is attributed to high prevalence and incidence rate of chronic and infectious diseases, which has increased per capita healthcare expenditure. Additionally, intensifying competition among diagnostic laboratories and hospitals and subsequent differentiation of products is expected to leverage demand for high-quality immunoassay analyzers, reagents and kits in the Asia-Pacific market.

 Immunoassay Manufacturer Insights: Development of Advanced Immunoassay to Drive Market Players’ Growth

The global immunoassay market is highly consolidated. The top four market players constitute more than half of the total market share. These players are: F. Hoffmann La-Roche Ltd. (Roche Holdings AG), Abbott Laboratories, Siemens Healthineers and Beckman Coulter, Inc. (Danaher). These players have consolidated their operations by virtue of important collaborations to burgeon production of immunoassay kits.

La-Roche, for instance, offers products such as the COBAS C 702 & E 602 Module, the COBAS 4000 & 6000 Analyzer series and Elecsys Assays. Likewise, Abbott Laboratories offers biotin-free assays to prevent interference in testing and the resulting inaccuracies. Other prominent immunoassay players include DiaSorin S.p.A., Sysmex Corporation, bioMerieux SA, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company and Merck KGaA.

COVID-19’s Impact on Global Immunoassay Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to heighten growth prospects for the global immunoassay market, as companies are increasingly directing research and development towards developing robust testing systems to ascertain potential antibodies which may assist in eradicating the novel coronavirus. Laboratories and diagnostic companies across the world are racing to produce antibody tests. Serology-based testing is in particularly high demand. This is attributed to its ability to quantify the number of COVID-19 cases, including those who may be asymptomatic or have recovered. ELISA-based testing is equally gaining traction in this regard. At present, Epitope Diagnostics, Inc. is offering the EDI Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 ELISA kits for qualitative detection of the COVID-19 IgG and IgM in human serum.

More recently, Bio-Rad Corporation announced the launch of a blood-based immunoassay kit for the identification of antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2. The company has established preliminary performance of the assay and has been clinically evaluated in multiple hospitals to further confirm its performance. Also, Thermo Fisher Scientific is offering its Singleplex kit for SARS-CoV-2 pathogen detection which is based on the RT-PCR technique. Furthermore, the company predicted that COVID-19 testing could create a tailwind of US$ 750 million in the second quarter of 2020. However, the benefits are more likely to be offset by disruptions, leading to an overall decline in the company’s sales by around 15%.

Analyst’s Viewpoint:

“Introduction of integrated systems coupled with development of ultrasensitive analyzer systems are anticipated to leverage prospects for the global immunoassay market. In addition, the novel coronavirus outbreak has provided a pathway for market expansion. North America and the Asia-Pacific regions are anticipated to provide credible growth opportunities, attributed to increased forays by leading market players to penetrate into respective markets.”
