The global tuberculosis diagnostics market is expected to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026. Tuberculosis (TB) refers to an infectious bacterial disease that primarily affects the lungs (pulmonary), along with other parts of the body (extrapulmonary). The infection is diagnosed via a Mantoux tuberculin skin test (TST) or the TB blood test. Additional tests are required to confirm TB disease, depending on the infected organs. In the case of pulmonary TB, chest radiography is performed for detecting chest abnormalities, along with acid-fast staining and microscopic examination of the patient’s sputum. Extrapulmonary TB can be diagnosed using CT, MRI or ultrasound scans, endoscopy, laparoscopy, urine and blood tests, biopsies, and lumbar punctures.
The increasing prevalence of multi-drug resistant (MDR) tuberculosis across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. MDR tuberculosis is caused by bacteria that are resistant to isoniazid and rifampicin, which are considered to be among the most potent antimicrobial drugs for TB. Furthermore, the availability of technologically advanced Point-of-Care (POC) diagnostic methods is also providing a boost to the market growth. Advanced diagnostic methods, such as Nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) and Interferon-Gamma Release Assay (IGRA), are more accurate, convenient, and provide prompt results in comparison to the traditionally used techniques. Additionally, significant improvements in the healthcare infrastructure, along with the growing awareness among the masses about various diagnostic procedures, are acting as another growth-inducing factor. Other factors, including the rising geriatric population and increasing healthcare expenditure and government initiatives and investments to promote research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global tuberculosis diagnostics market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
