Global Self-Testing Kits – Will They Always Be Relevant?

Global Self-Testing Kits have been around for a long time, and their market has also seen significant growth over the years. They started off as a brilliant idea where people could test themselves for different health conditions and diseases without visiting laboratories and getting lengthy prescriptions. 


Self-Testing Kits


Self-testing kits have been used for diseases such as diabetes for a long time since blood glucose needs to be monitored fairly often in a person suffering from diabetes. Other health conditions, such as cholesterol levels, triglycerides, and even some cancers, can be suspected or detected at home. These kits can take data from urine, stool, blood, oral swabs, and pulse. During the Covid-19 pandemic as well, Global Self-Testing Kits became very popular since individuals could test themselves without exposure to the contaminated environments found in hospitals and laboratories. 


The Covid-19 outbreak had a moderate impact on the market for self-testing kits as well. Research and development projects, along with a decline in elective healthcare procedures, denied services, and lockdowns, contributed to the slowing down of market growth in the time. However, there were also predictions of the market rising drastically at one point as well. 


At present, one of the main drivers for the market is the convenience that is offered by self-testing kits to most people. These kits have helped to boost HIV testing in people and have been seen to lower the burden on the healthcare sector as a whole. Over the years, testing kits such as those for pregnancy or diabetes have become much more common and are routinely used by people. In fact, they are the first step in establishing a case before a person makes their way to a healthcare facility. 


DNA testing kits have also become increasingly common in recent years as well. Other than that, Covid-testing kits, even the unauthorized ones, have taken over the market, and people are buying in droves. Many people have also resorted to testing themselves with the help of kits bought online without being recommended by a healthcare professional too. These factors have also contributed heavily to the growth of the market in recent years. 


The biggest concern with self-testing kits is the possibility of false positives and negatives hindering the reliability of these tests. This, therefore, also acts as the main restraining factor for self-testing kits as well. Many people still prefer going to the doctor instead of buying a self-testing kit because they do not want the risk of a false result.


North America currently holds the largest market share since the most highly developed medical and healthcare facilities are found in this region. This includes the USA, Canada, and even Mexico. The FDA is granting approvals for self-testing kits rapidly too, which is further contributing to the growth of the market in this region. After that, Europe comes into play, with countries such as Germany, France, and the UK holding the highest shares of the market. The market is slowly rising and finding its place in Asia Pacific, and awareness and acceptability of these kits slowly rise in the region. 


The Key players in the market at present include ACON Laboratories, ARKRAY Inc, Assure Tech, Roche Holding AG, and a few others.
