Retrovirus Testing Market: Introduction

  • Retrovirus is a type of virus with RNA as its genetic material. It is composed of an enzyme called reverse transcriptase that converts RNA to DNA after infecting a cell. It then integrates its DNA into the host DNA for replication.
  • Retroviruses are a group of viruses that belong to the Retroviridae family. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is one of the common retroviruses known to cause diseases in humans. Other forms of retroviruses include human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1), HTLV-2, HIV 1, and HIV 2.
  • HTLV-1 is known to cause a type of cancer known as adult T-cell leukemia, and a neurodegenerative condition known as HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP). It was the first retrovirus to be discovered, detected, and isolated, followed by the HIV.
  • Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are persistent features of genomes in various animals. Human ERVs are known to be distributed in the human genome over the course of evolution, making up to 4% of the human DNA.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Retrovirus Testing Market

  • High prevalence of HIV and increase in awareness about the diagnosis of HIV are driving the global retrovirus testing market. According to UNAIDS, more than 37.9 million people were suffering from HIV at the end of 2018, and over 78% of the population was aware of carrying the infection.          
  • Retrovirus testing tools act as one of the efficient tools for the identification of the disease. These tolls provide quick results, with significantly high efficacy, thus boosting the retrovirus testing market.
  • Rise in adoption of in-vitro assays for the diagnosis of retroviruses, owing to the increase in incidence of sexually transmitted diseases, and growth in investments in research and development, are propelling the global retrovirus testing market
  • Introduction of technologically advanced and rapid retroviral infection detection technologies, increase in awareness about diagnostic tests, and rise in expenditure on the screening of retroviruses are anticipated to propel the global retrovirus testing market during the forecast period
  • Lack of skilled professionals to perform the assays and high cost of retrovirus testing assays and diagnostic kits are projected to hamper the retrovirus testing market during the forecast period
