PCR Gains Popularity as Non-invasive Specimen for Effective Diagnosis of Syphilis

Recent advancements in molecular biology have led to the popularity of molecular diagnosis, such as the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics ecosystem. PCR technology is playing a crucial role in diagnosing syphilis. Healthcare industries in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market are developing various PCR methodologies that can be easily adapted in the clinical and laboratory environment. PCR is being increasingly associated with widespread application and deep exploration in the healthcare space.

Fast developments in PCR have led to advancements in real-time PCR, nested PCR, and multiplex PCR. The high sensitivity and specificity of PCR is well-suited for the diagnosis of early-stage syphilis. On the other hand, routine PCR is well-received in secondary syphilis. Healthcare companies in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market are increasing R&D to detect atypical cases of vertebral, ocular, and tonsillar syphilis with the help of molecular biology. Real-time PCR is gaining increased popularity for its ability to calculate the sum of pathogens that reveal the severity of the infection.

Companies Improve Access to Testing Technologies in LMICs to Prevent Maternal Syphilis

The issue of maternal and child mortality due to syphilis and HIV/AIDS is distinctly prevalent in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This is why, healthcare industries in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market are increasing efforts to improve child and maternal health through antenatal care.

At the same time, companies in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics space are innovating in point of care diagnostic services. Although healthcare industries are making progress in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission, several new cases of pediatric infections are still being reported. Thus, companies in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market should improve access to new testing technologies that will reduce the incidence of syphilis infection in LMICs. Along with testing for syphilis, companies should offer convenient testing options such as the dual HIV/syphilis rapid diagnostics test to help patients assess the prevalence of any other bacterial infections.

Companies in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics ecosystem are also increasing the availability of antenatal rapid syphilis testing in LMICs. Undiagnosed and untreated maternal syphilis has catalyzed the demand for antenatal rapid syphilis testing.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Kits and reagents are projected for high growth in the syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market. Apart from manual testing, healthcare companies are turning toward automating high-quality syphilis test kits with the use of state-of-the-art machines. FDA-cleared automated analyzers are also triggering market growth.

Healthcare providers are increasingly replacing labor-intensive reading with full automatic results that meet the 'results-per-hour' demand. However, the transmission of syphilis during blood donation poses a huge risk for healthcare providers. Hence, companies should educate healthcare providers about thorough health consultation and screening of high-risk groups before blood donation. Companies should invest in developing robust clinical chemistry analyzers that provide automation-ready immunoassays.

Syphilis Immunoassay Diagnostics Market and Report Description

  • Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a bacteria called Treponema pallidum. The most common route of transmission is through contact with an infected person’s sore during sexual activity. The syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market is likely to expand significantly, as syphilis continues to be a global concern.
  • Syphilis immunoassay diagnostic tests are vital to ascertain an infection. According to CDC and IUSTI guidelines, blood serological tests for syphilis remain the diagnostic standard. At least one treponemal antigen test (syphilis immunoassay diagnostics) and one non-treponemal antigen test is sufficient to confirm syphilis.
  • The global syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market was valued at ~US$ 310 Mn in 2018, and is projected to reach ~US$ 380 Mn by 2027.
  • The global syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market is projected to expand at a CAGR of ~2% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2027.

Syphilis Immunoassay Diagnostics Market: Drivers

  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have reached become an epidemic across the world. According to 2016 World Health Organizations (WHO) research findings, more than 1 million people acquire sexually transmitted infections (STI), every day, globally.
  • Research findings also suggest that, every year, 350 million new cases of one of four (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and trichomoniasis) curable sexually transmitted infections (STIs) occur each year, and out of that, 6 million new cases are found. This is estimated to offer significant opportunities to the syphilis immunoassay diagnostic market.
  • Mother-to-child and gestational syphilis is a global concern, and affects more than 1 million pregnant women, globally. This is likely to drive the demand for syphilis immunoassay diagnostics.
  • Syphilis is primarily transmitted through sexual activity, and it remains a significant public health issue, worldwide. STDs are caused due to social, economic, and biological factors. STDs disproportionately affect disenfranchised people and people in social networks, in which high-risk sexual behavior is commonly observed, especially when either access to healthcare or health-seeking behavior is compromised. Therefore, socioeconomic factors are also likely to boost the global syphilis immunoassay diagnostic market.

Global Syphilis Immunoassay Diagnostics Market: Key Segments

  • The global syphilis immunoassay diagnostics market has been bifurcated into product, technology, and end user.
