Lyme Disease Diagnostics Market Research Based on Synthesis and Analysis on Techniques and Medical Applications Report 2026

Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by Borrelia bacterium, which is spread through ticks. The most common symptoms of Lyme disease are headache, fever, fatigue, and skin rash called erythema migrans. If the infection is left untreated, it could spread to heart, nervous system, and joints. The first step of diagnostics is enzyme immunoassay (EIA). No additional treatment is required of the first screening is found to be negative. However, if the first step is positive, the second test is Western blot test. Moreover, results of the screening tests are considered positive only if both tests are positive. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), if the first screening is avoided, it will lead to false positive test and eventually to misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment. The Western blot test is the most precise antibody test, while ELISA tests are not sensitive enough for screening.

Global Lyme Disease Diagnostics Market Dynamics

Lyme disease is an extremely difficult disease to detect as it can be confused with growing cases of tick-borne infectious disease and complexity and various symptoms in individual patient. Growing initiatives by the government on improvement of healthcare facilities and increasing prevalence of Lyme disease is expected to create lucrative environment of the key players in the market. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) report, 2016, annually 300,000 cases of Lyme disease are recorded in the U.S. Several research institutes and government organizations are working on innovative novel diagnostic tests for Lyme disease. NIAID, in collaboration with CDC, plays a crucial role in encouraging development of new methods to improve Lyme disease screening. Moreover, NIAID grantees work in collaboration with CDC researchers to evaluate the efficacy of existing diagnostic methods.

Moreover, key players in the market are involved in research and development activities of new tests for Lyme disease diagnosis, which is expected to aid in growth of the global Lyme disease diagnostics market during the forecast period. For instance, in 2017, IGeneX Inc., a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and New York-approved Reference Laboratory, specializing in testing for tick-borne diseases— launched three new tests that are more comprehensive and specific for assisting in diagnosis of tick-borne relapsing fever and Lyme disease. However, lack of awareness about the disease and inadequacy in Lyme disease testing significantly hinders the market growth. Moreover, a lot of patients with Lyme-like symptoms are wrongly diagnosed as existing serological tests cannot accurately identify antibodies of all the different strains of B. burgdorferi. Therefore, demand for better diagnostic tests for the disease is increasing. Since the symptoms of tick-borne relapsing fever and Lyme are similar, development of more accurate test is required for proper diagnosis.
