Enteric Disease Testing Market: Drivers

Increasing prevalence of enteric infections among children is a major factor boosting growth of the enteric disease testing market. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2017, infectious gastroenteritis accounts for one billion cases of diarrhea and over two million deaths, annually worldwide. Moreover, according to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, 2017, enteric and diarrheal diseases lead to death of around 500,000 children, under the age of five, annually and children who survive repeated infections by gut pathogens in the early years of their life may suffer from lifelong health problems.

Increasing R&D of new products is expected propel growth of the market over the forecast period. For instance, in July 2014, Trinity Biotech plc. received CE marking for its new Uni-Gold H. pylori Antigen point-of-care test. The Uni-Gold H. pylori Antigen is a 15 min rapid test that is used in diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and to monitor the effectiveness of the treatment.

Moreover, increasing prevalence of diarrhea, cholera, and other diarrheal diseases is also expected to contribute to growth of the market. For instance, according to WHO, in 2017, 1.7 billion cases of diarrhea that resulted in over 2 million deaths were recorded worldwide. Moreover, children aged five years are particularly at risk and accounted for 760,000 fatalities, annually. Major organizations such as the WHO and UNICEF are focused on prevention and control of enteric infection, which is also expected to propel growth of the enteric disease testing market. According to Child Health Epidemiology Research Group (CHERG), enteric pathogens such as Salmonella spp., Rotavirus, and V. cholera caused more mortality as compared to other enteric pathogen. Therefore, the WHO has set the highest priority for R&D of improved vaccines against these pathogens.

Enteric diseases are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in emerging economies, owing to poor drainage and sanitation facilities. For instance, typhoid fever and paratyphoid fever are the main causes of bacterial blood infections in children in Southeast Asia; children in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa also suffer from typhoid.

Enteric Disease Testing Market: Restraints 

However, lack of proper medical research infrastructure in emerging countries such as India and China is a major factor hindering growth of the market.

Enteric Disease Testing Market: Competitive Landscape  

Major players operating in market are focused on product launch and approval to expand their product portfolio.
