Global Swab and Viral Transport Medium Market Overview
Demand in the swab and viral and transport medium market has witnessed remarkable upsurge in the recent past, as the number of tests and laboratory experiments are registering an unprecedented high during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the pandemic is currently acting as a catalyst for market growth, growing emphasis by market players on the development of advanced testing processes such as rapid antigen testing and molecular essay experiments will aid in sustaining demand in the long run.
Swab and viral transport medium aid microbiologists in collecting, transporting, and preserving biological samples meant for testing & research purposes. To curb the spread of the infection, governments across the world are working closely with healthcare technology service providers to ensure wide-scale testing of COVID-19 infections.
In addition to the ongoing trend of COVID-19 infection, prevalence of commonly-transmitted diseases such as influenza and herpes will continue to drive demand in the swab and viral transport medium market after the COVID-19 outbreak is contained.
- For instance, influenza severely affects over 3 to 5 Mn people and leads to 650,000 deaths annually, and requires collection and transport of nasopharyngeal swabs.
- Likewise, nearly 776,000 people in the United States contract genital herpes infections every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This necessitates the usage of swab and viral transport medium to collect and store vaginal swabs.
- Similarly, several infections require the collection of swab from different parts of the body and means to safely store the samples.
These factors will continue to act as tailwinds to the expansion of the swab and viral and transport medium market size.
Market players are capitalizing the growing number of infections, and are up-scaling their production capacities and offerings to facilitate efficient storage options for biosamples. Impelled by these factors, Fact.MR, in a new study, has projected that the global swab and viral transport medium market will surpass a valuation of US$ 2.2 Bn by the end of 2030.
Swab and Viral Transport Medium Market Insights by Product
Over the years, there has been considerable improvements in swabs, with innovations such as double-ended flocked swabs, kits with integrated vials, etc., which have been aiding the growth of the swab and viral transport medium market.
On these lines, there are different types of swabs for different infections, such as nasal swabs, nasopharyngeal swabs, and throat swabs, which will continue to bestow lucrative revenue opportunities.
