“Kits & Reagents segment accounted for the largest share in the lateral flow assays market.”
Based on product type, the lateral flow assays market is segmented into kits & reagents and lateral flow readers. In 2020, kits & reagents accounted for the larger share of 80.6% of the global lateral flow assays market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the increasing application of lateral flow kits & reagents for POC testing, the growing burden of chronic diseases, the increasing use of lateral flow kits in home care, and their convenience and ease of use. The lateral flow readers segment is bifurcated into digital/handheld readers and benchtop readers. This segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period.
“Clinical Testing segment is expected to witness the fastest growth in the forecast period.”
Based on applications, the lateral flow assays market is segmented into clinical testing, veterinary diagnostics, food safety & environmental testing, and drug development & quality testing. The clinical testing segment accounted for the largest share of 90.9% of the lateral flow assays market in 2020. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, growing pressure to reduce healthcare costs, and the increasing demand for patient-centric care.
“Sandwich assays technique accounted for the largest share of lateral flow assays market in 2020”
Based on technique, the lateral flow assay kits & reagents market is segmented into competitive assays, sandwich assays, and multiplex detection assays. The sandwich assays technique dominated the lateral flow assays market with a share of 70.9% in 2020. The large share of this segment can be attributed to its better assay sensitivity and specificity and its extensive applications in the measurement of critical analytes (such as cardiac and hepatitis markers).
