Moreover, other at-risk individuals such as sex workers are also being targeted to take up HIV testing. Healthcare companies are increasing research to assess the prevalence of HIV among children who are at the risk of contracting the infection.

Companies Introduce New Testing Approaches in Oral and Urine Specimen Types

HIV testing programs are being designed to make people aware of their status who might be at the risk of contracting HIV. These programs are being strategically targeted by companies in the HIV self-test kits market at individuals in under-developed economies, such as Africa and developing countries of Asia Pacific. As such, there has been success in testing pregnant women. Hence, manufacturers are making HIV self-test kits easily available to pregnant women.

New testing technologies in oral fluid and urine specimen types have revolutionized the HIV response in local communities. Innovative testing approaches are anticipated to catalyze growth of the HIV self-test kits market, since individuals refrain from taking tests with traditional health service providers.

Healthcare Initiatives Boost Uptake of HIV Self-test Kits in Asia Pacific

HIV self-testing (HIVST) and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) are highly publicized tools that are transforming the HIV self-test kits market. High prevalence of HIV in Asia Pacific region has triggered the uptake of HIV self-test kits. As such, according to analysts of Transparency Market Research, the HIV self-test kits market in Asia Pacific is projected for aggressive growth during the forecast period and the global HIV self-test kits market is estimated to reach a revenue of ~US$ 471 Mn by the end of 2027. However, existing services are not adequately reaching these populations, which poses as a barrier for healthcare companies. Hence, companies are creating awareness through developmental workshops in Asia Pacific to boost the uptake of HIV self-test kits.

Developmental workshops that impart knowledge about the best practices and innovations in HIVST and PrEP act as key drivers for the market. For instance, the United Nations co-sponsored the Workshop on Building Capacity for Roll-out of PrEP and HIV Testing Innovations program, which was supported by the Population Services International (PSI) in Thailand.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Internet-distributed HIV self-tests encourage individuals to seek treatment and recommend their peers to gain awareness on their status. This is evident since HIV self-tests are being integrated with mHealth to cater to the convenience of users. Manufacturers are focusing on increasing awareness about easy-to-use oral HIV self-tests kits to target young adults.

Moreover, government initiatives are helping in increased uptake of HIV self-tests kits. However, challenges in HIVST scale-up with regard to cost, registration, and availability of test kits are likely to slow down market growth. Hence, governments are collaborating with medical device companies to increase awareness about testing devices and increase efforts in PrEP implementation projects.
