Allergy is an exaggerated reaction by the immune system in response to exposure to certain foreign substances. These foreign substances are called as allergens and includes pollens, dust mites, molds, animal proteins, foods, medications, etc. When an allergic individual comes in contact with an allergen, the immune system mounts a response through the IgE antibody. People who are prone to allergies are called as allergic or "atopic." The allergic symptoms may include runny nose, sneezing, blocked sinuses, itching, watery eyes, etc. An allergy diagnostic test may involve either a skin test or a blood test which helps to diagnose particular pollens, molds, or other allergens a particular person is allergic to. Once the allergen is determined, doctors may come up with a plan for avoiding those allergens and can also prescribe medications to ease the symptoms.
Market - Headwinds & Tailwinds
The global allergy diagnostics market is mainly driven by rising incidence of allergies across the globe, growing adoption of advanced allergy diagnostics kits & technology and increasing environmental pollution. Favorable reimbursement scenario in the U.S. is also playing a pivotal role in contributing to the growth of the market globally. However, lack of coverage for the test in emerging countries and issues related to affordability of allergy diagnostics instruments are likely to restrain the market growth to a certain extent.
The global allergy diagnostics market has been analyzed from five perspectives: Test Type, Product Type, Allergan Type, End User and Region.
Based on test type, the allergy diagnostics market has been segmented into in vivo and in vitro. The in vivo tests include test, such as prick and intradermal skin tests, whereas, in vitro tests include tests such as RAST, MAST, FAST, ELISA, and ImmunoCAP. The in vivo segment holds the largest share in the market. The growth of the segment can be attributed to rising adoption of the test by healthcare professionals and patients due to its benefits such as ease of use, wider availability, and favorable reimbursement policies.
Based on product type, the allergy diagnostics market has been segmented into instruments, consumables and services. The consumables segment holds the largest share in the market. Consumable’s segment consists of the kits, reagents and other components of allergy diagnostics. The growth of the segment can be attributed to easy accessibility of diagnostic kits and their frequent purchase for each test performed as compared to the one-time purchase of instruments.
Based on allergen type, the market has been segmented into drug allergens, inhaled allergens, food allergens and others. The food allergens segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period owing to growing prevalence of food allergies especially in children. Researchers estimate that around 32 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.6 million children under the age of 18. According to FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), each year around 200,000 people in the U.S. require emergency medical care for allergic reactions to food.
Based on end user, the allergy diagnostics market has been segmented into hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, academic research institutes and others. The diagnostic laboratories segment holds the largest share in the market. The growth of the market can be attributed to availability of advanced diagnostic kits & technology and increasing number of immunoassay tests performed for allergy diagnostics.
Based on region, the global allergy diagnostics market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America dominated the allergy diagnostics market, followed by Asia Pacific. The large share of North America in the global market can largely be attributed to its well-developed healthcare facilities, growing prevalence of various type of allergies, increasing adoption of highly advanced allergy diagnostics, favorable reimbursement scenario and presence of prominent players in the region.
The allergy diagnostics market is marked by presence of prominent players such as Siemens Healthcare Private Limited, Thermo Fisher Scientific, bioMérieux SA, Hitachi Chemical Diagnostics, Inc., Omega Diagnostics Group PLC, StatNano, HYCOR Biomedical, Lincoln Diagnostics, Inc., Stallergenes Greer and HOB Biotech Group Corp., Ltd. Other players operating in the market are R-Biopharm AG, Alcon, among others.
