Market analysis by region:
North America market is expected to dominate the global allergy diagnostics market, and it accounts for largest market revenue over US$ 600 million in 2017 as compared to that of markets in other regions, owing to presence of leading manufacturers and high market penetration in the region. Also, Asia Pacific market is expected to register highest CAGR than that of other regions, owing to development in healthcare sector and increasing prevalence of allergy in countries in the region. Other growth supporting factors includes, increasing awareness about the availability of allergy diagnostic test among the individuals, social awareness initiatives for example, in India, IIA (Indian Academy of Allergy) have been initiating many programs to spread awareness, educate, and update about allergy among population. In 2017, IIA conducted awareness seminars in various cities of India during the World Allergy Week from 2nd April, 2017 to 8th April, 2017.
Furthermore, increasing number of people getting affected by allergy is becoming more frequent in countries in the Asia Pacific region, is an another factor propelling growth of the allergy diagnostics market in the region. For example, in Australia, one in three people are prone to develop allergies at least once in their lifetime. Food allergy is also found in one in 20 people and one in 100 will have a life-threatening allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis.
In 2017, Europe accounted for the second largest revenue share contribution to the global target market, owing to increasing prevalence of chronic allergy in countries in the region. According to study published by The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI), in 2015 about 150 million individuals in Europe suffered from chronic allergic diseases. Also, it is estimated that more than 50% of the total European population may suffer from some type of allergy before the year 2025, this in turn expected to boost growth of the Europe allergy diagnostics market.
Increasing mergers, acquisitions, and collaborations among leading market players in various region in order to enhance product portfolio and to develop more accurate allergy diagnostic kits expected to support growth of the target market. For instance, in October 2013, Quest Diagnostics Inc., a leading global provider of diagnostic information services, acquired ConVerge Diagnostic Services, LLC.
Also, in November 2016, Stallergenes Greer collaborated with the Sean N. Parker Center for allergy and asthma research at Stanford University (Stanford) to identify potential biomarkers of allergy immunotherapy (AIT) efficacy.
