Inhaled Allergens Causing Allergic Rhinitis Prove Most Lethal

The consumables product type segment is prognosticated to reserve nearly half of the total share in the international allergy diagnostics market by 2024, putting behind the markets for assay kits and instruments. The results were almost similar in 2016. Research analysts predict the high volume and low cost of consumable products to be the decisive factors responsible for the higher share of the consumables market.

By type of allergen, inhaled allergens are envisioned to secure a princely share in the global allergy diagnostics market during the course of the forecast period. Allergic rhinitis is found to affect almost 30.0% to 40.0% of the global population, as per the statistics of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Patients suffering from this most prevalent allergy around the world are discovered to witness a 40.0% to 50.0% of asthma prevalence. Altering pollen seasons as a result of elevating global temperatures and changes in climate have augmented the prevalence of asthma and allergic rhinitis.

The in vivo test market for allergy diagnostics is foretold to outshine the in vitro test market on account of the cost-efficiency and sensitivity of skin tests. Ease of performance and unparalleled efficiency are the other factors that have made in vivo tests so attractive in the global allergy diagnostics market. For the forecast years, the in vivo test segment could continue its dominance while exhibiting a phenomenal CAGR.

With ease of access and improved diagnostic facilities in place, the diagnostic laboratories segment by end user is anticipated to clasp a king’s share. The dominance of diagnostic laboratories could prevail until the end of the forecast period. Players operating in this market are expected to cash in on the advancements in diagnostic equipment and methodologies and heightened occurrences of inhaled and food allergies.

U.S. Stimulates Weighty Demand in Wake of Economic Impact of Allergies


North America could be the most attractive geographical segment by 2024, owing to increasing awareness about allergy threats, enhanced diagnostic technologies, improved health care facilities, and surging prevalence of allergies in the U.S. Coupled with technological developments and availability of sophisticated health care facilities, the U.S. flaunts a towering per capita health care expenditure.

The U.S. bears an approximate US$4.3 bn in annual cost to cater to the needs of 40.0 mn allergic rhinitis patients and up to US$700 mn in indirect costs due to 4.0 mn missed working days. In order to curb such a heavy impact on the U.S. economy, the government are taking to certain initiatives and the implementation of allergy awareness and education programs. Moreover, the reimbursement policies in the U.S. cover a majority of treatment procedures and tests pertaining to allergy diagnosis and treatment through the Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Europe is also researched to offer lucrative opportunities while Asia Pacific is forecasted to be a faster growing allergy diagnostics market.
