Rising Prevalence of Infectious Diseases

The aging population is more susceptible to chronic illnesses like cystic fibrosis, cardiovascular diseases, hepatitis, and cancer because of physiological changes, metabolic issues, and weak immune systems. Changes in lifestyle, such as a sedentary lifestyle and increasing consumption of cigarettes and alcohol, will accelerate the spread of disease in the forecast period. It is anticipated that the rising incidences of infectious diseases like HIV and malaria, etc. will lead to increasing demand for lateral flow assay components. Infectious diseases are a major health concern worldwide, and efficient disease treatment depends on quick and precise diagnostic testing. LFAs are frequently employed in the detection of infectious illnesses, including malaria, HIV, and tuberculosis. Diagnostic testing carried out at or close to the location of patient care is referred to as “point-of-care” testing. Since point-of-care testing can yield results in a matter of minutes, requires no sample preparation, and is easy to use, LFAs are perfect for point-of-care testing. The need for self-testing at home has increased after the COVID-19 pandemic.

LFAs are a good choice for self-testing at home as they are simple provide fast results. The development of lateral flow tests that may be utilized for patient-specific diagnosis and therapy is being driven by the increasing need for personalized medicine. According to a report published by National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2023, ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of cases recorded increased by 259.4% (2,227,613 cases in 2021 and 8,006,631 cases in 2022), primarily due to five diseases: mumps (2656% rise), malaria (990% rise), polio (2100% rise), influenza (354% rise), and diphtheria (419% rise).
