Paper Diagnostics Market: About the Report

The global paper diagnostics market is forecast to grow at a steady pace as demand for rapid testing and accurate diagnosis rises in response to increasing cases of cancer and auto-immune diseases, worldwide. While the market was considerably affected due to the outbreak of COVID-19 during the first half of 2020, rising demand from key end-use industries such as hospitals and clinics, home care settings, and others is expected to aid in the fast recovery in the near future. Fact.MR offers a detailed analysis of the market, studying its growth trajectory across North America, Europe, South Asia, East Asia, and other regions.

Paper Diagnostics Market Overview

Increasing awareness regarding the early detection of various auto-immune diseases such as Graves ’ disease, pernicious anemia, Addison disease, and others has been a key growth driver of the paper diagnostics market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2008, 7.6 million people died from cancer accounting for 13% of all deaths worldwide. And the number of global cancer deaths is projected to increase by 45% through 2030. The rising incidence of cancer is expected to fuel the demand for paper diagnostics.

Steady growth of the hospitals, clinics, home care settings, and other healthcare segments is projected to create growth opportunities for the market between 2020 and 2030. According to the European Commission (EC), in 2018 the total expenditure of general governments on ‘health’ amounted to EUR 944 billion or 7.0% of GDP.

Government stimulus to the healthcare sector is projected to surge in the coming years, fuelling demand for advanced diagnostic technologies. Against this backdrop, despite suffering set-backs due to the ongoing pandemic, the paper diagnostics market is likely to recover gradually over the next year.

Increasing Cases of Autoimmune Diseases Bolstering Growth

Rising cases of autoimmune diseases and cancers coupled with the growing awareness among solutions available for fast and prompt diagnosis have resulted in high demand for the early detection of these diseases.

According to the recent report of National Institutes of Health (NIH) published in April, 2020, the prevalence of autoimmune diseases in the United States was 11.0% for 1988-1991 and it had been increasing steadily to reach at 11.5% during 199-2004 and at 15.9% during 2011-2012.

Paper diagnostics provide promising solutions for early diagnosis of these diseases while emphasizing on the key aspects of the diagnosis procedure and outcomes such as affordability, sustainability, portability, disposability, and others.

According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) of NIH, the rate of auto-immune diseases is forecast to grow further in the United States in the coming years. The data indicates that demand for paper diagnostics will surge considerably in the coming years

Regional Outlook of Paper Diagnostics Market

North America is the leading market for paper diagnostics in the world owing to the rising cases of cancer and advanced healthcare infrastructure. According to the National Cancer Institute, the U.S. is likely to have 1,806,590 new cases of cancer in 2020 and nearly 606,520 people might succumb to the disease. The demand for early and effective detection of cancer has therefore become a priority for the healthcare industry in North America. This in turn is boosting the demand for paper diagnostics in the region.

Europe is the second-leading market for paper diagnostics and is set to sustain its position through the forecast period. The presence of well-developed healthcare sector, coupled with the support from government are propelling the growth in Europe. For instance, a new policy adopted by the European Health Commission includes four pillars to beat cancers which are- prevention, early diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care.

The presence of favorable policies such as this is creating environment conducive to the growth of the market. Fact MR has identified countries such as Germany, France, Italy, and others as highly lucrative pockets for paper diagnostics sales within Europe.

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in the global market and is expected to remain in the position due to the steady rise in demand for early and reliable detection of the diseases such as diabetes, cancer, tuberculosis, and others.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than half worldwide cases of tuberculosis are reported in South-East Asia and Western Pacific region. This has significantly contributed to the surge in demand for paper diagnostics in East Asia.
