Global COVID-19 Test Kits Market is valued at USD 4.04 Billion in 2022 and expected to reach USD 6.53 Billion by 2029 with the CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period.

Rising highly infectious acute respiratory disease COVID-19 worldwide is driving the growth of Global COVID-19 Test Kits Market.


Laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) includes methods that detect the presence of virus and those that detect antibodies produced in response to infection. As of 21st March 2020, the CDC recommends RT-PCR for initial screening. The presence of viruses is generally confirmed by RT-PCR, which detects the coronavirus’ RNA. This test detects only the RNA of the SARS-CoV-2 and is used to confirm very recent or active infections. Detection of antibodies (serology) can be used both for diagnosis and population surveillance. Antibody tests show how many people have had the disease, including those whose symptoms were minor or who were asymptomatic. An accurate mortality rate of the disease and the level of herd immunity in the population can be determined from the results of this test. Due to limited testing, as of March 2020 no countries had reliable data on the prevalence of the virus in their population. So, due to rising prevalence of patient against testing of viral disease the demand for Covid-19 test kits will increases over the period of time.
