Strong focus on ‘test & trace’, and growing clamor for mass testing will continue to drive demand for Covid-19 diagnostics in 2020 and beyond, according to a new research by ESOMAR-certified firm Future Market Insights (FMI).
The study provides a long-term outlook on the Covid-19 testing kits market, providing a likely scenario until 2030. Although successful vaccines are likely to be developed by 2021, a growing body of research is suggesting that Covid-19 will become endemic, as is the case with other coronaviruses.
An exponential rise in the number of Covid-19 patients across the globe followed by requirements of rapid diagnostics will continue to drive demand.
As of now, research is being conducted regarding diagnostics as well as treatments. Diagnostics comprise PCR-based tests and serological or antibody testing. Antibody tests are best-suited for checking for herd immunities in recovered patients, whereas PCR tests serve the purpose of early detection of coronavirus.

The healthcare industry is emphasizing on development of immunotherapy, vaccines, cell-based and antiviral therapies. As of May 2020, there were 124 vaccines and 205 diverse therapies under development.
The core areas of research are inclusive of protein-based vaccines, drug re-purposes, antibodies, cell-based therapies, non-replicating viral vectors, and RNA-based vaccines.
Key Takeaways from FMI’s Covid-19 Diagnostics Market Study
- Molecular assay holds the largest share right now and the trend is expected to continue till the end of 2020. This could be attributed to the fact that molecular assays have been looked upon as a gold standard to detect novel viral infections
- Diagnostic labs contributed to more than 60% of total market share in 2020’s first quarter
Key Challenges for Market Players & Researchers
Right now, the challenges faced include lack of information regarding the virus, like genetic information, biologics, duration of immunity in the recovered patients.
Certain treatment options that are expected to be potential game changers include ACE-Mab by Sorrento Therapeutics, HCQ (Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine), Remdesivir antiviral by Gilead Sciences, and Canakinumab (Ilaris) by Novartis.
