Urban Lifestyle Behind Limited Exposure to Infectious Microorganisms Among Small Children

According to the lead author of this report, “the growing incidences of allergies and reactions is the chief reason behind the growth of the global allergy diagnostics market. The market is also benefitting from the social, genetic, economic, and geographical factors. As per the hygiene hypothesis theory, the lack of early exposure to infectious microorganisms and agents increases the chances and vulnerability of the person getting allergy due to limited development of the immune system at the early stage. As urbanization has resulted in a lifestyle that offers rare exposure to infectious agents in early stage of life, the incidences of allergies is rising among urban population rapidly. The technological advancements in the diagnosis techniques for allergies will support the growth of the global allergy diagnostics market.

Lack of Financial Resources for Funding Diagnosis to Pose a Challenge

The market for allergy diagnostics is restrained by various factors. The lack of awareness among the people in developing nations is one of the main challenges limiting the growth of the global allergy diagnostics market. The lack of financial resources for funding diagnosis tests is also an important factor hampering the growth of the allergy diagnostics market.

Awareness Programs by Government to Help Market’s Growth

However, the growing number of awareness programs initiated by governments to educate the people regarding the benefits of early diagnosis of allergies will create a favourable environment of growth for the allergy diagnostics market. the favourable reimbursement policies across developing nations will also create growth opportunities for the market.
