Lateral Flow Assay Market Predicted to grow at 4.70% CAGR by 2030, Claims AMR

The lateral flow assay market has experienced significant growth in recent years, with a valuation of $8,351.30 million in 2020 and a projected value of $13,352.90 million by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.70% from 2021 to 2030.

Lateral flow assays, also known as lateral flow immunochromatographic assays, are widely used techniques for detecting the presence or absence of a target analyte in a sample, such as antigens and antibodies. These assays find extensive application in hospitals and clinical laboratories for qualitative and quantitative detection of specific biomolecules. Additionally, lateral flow assay kits are employed for rapid testing of infectious diseases, cardiac markers, pregnancy and fertility, cholesterol testing/lipid profiling, and drug abuse. They are also utilized in the food and beverage industry for testing purposes.

One of the key features of lateral flow assays is their ability to provide quick results, making them highly desirable for point-of-care testing and emergency situations. They offer a simple, rapid, and cost-effective solution for diagnostic testing, making them widely adopted in various healthcare settings. Furthermore, lateral flow assays have also found applications in non-medical fields, such as food safety testing, environmental monitoring, and veterinary diagnostics, due to their ease of use and portability.
