According to the report, The global lateral flow assay market size reached US$ 9.8 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 13.3 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5% during 2023-2028.

What is Lateral Flow Assay?

The Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) is a widely employed diagnostic technique for quick and on-the-spot testing. This straightforward and user-friendly method determines the presence or absence of a specific target analyte, such as a virus or bacteria, in each sample. It utilizes a paper-based strip coated with biomolecules, including antibodies or antigens, which can capture the target analyte. It plays a crucial role in examining various biological samples like saliva, urine, sweat, serum, plasma, blood, and other fluids. It is used in hospitals and clinical laboratories to detect specific agents, antibodies, and gene amplification, both qualitatively and quantitatively. In addition, it helps develop cost-effective, user-friendly, swift, and portable detection devices used in biomedicine, agriculture, food, and environmental sciences. The LFA offers numerous advantages, such as it provides rapid results and do not require specialized equipment or expertise for execution, over traditional diagnostic tests. As a result, the LFA finds extensive application in the detection of infectious diseases, pregnancy testing, and drug screening across the globe.

What are the growth prospects and trends in the lateral flow assay industry?

The global lateral flow assay market is primarily driven by the rising prevalence of infectious diseases among populations and the growing demand for quick and dependable diagnostic tests to swiftly detect and treat diseases. Moreover, the shifting inclination toward point-of-care testing, aiming to enhance patient outcomes by delivering rapid and accurate test results, enabling early disease diagnosis and care, is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, continuous technological advancements and the emergence of multiplex LFAs, capable of detecting multiple target analytes in a single test using a single sample, are propelling market growth. Additionally, the surging adoption of gold nanosphere-based surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) labels in LFA measurements, due to their strong anti-interference and high sensitivity capabilities, has catalyzed the market growth. Besides this, the implementation of extensive awareness programs to improve infection spread, diagnosis, and prevention is another major growth-inducing factor. In addition, the escalating demand for alternative methods of transporting patient samples to laboratories amid the COVID-19 pandemic due to the limited availability of extensive laboratory facilities and trained healthcare personnel capable of conducting polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests has accelerated the product adoption rate. Furthermore, key players introducing innovative signal enhancement techniques and enhancing quantification systems for simultaneous detection are contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) activities by key players, significant improvements in the healthcare sector, and rapid urbanization, are also anticipated to drive the market further.
