Global rapid test kit market was valued at USD 23.44 Billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a formidable rate of 8.14% during the forecast period. The global rapid test kit market is driven by the growing prevalence of various infectious diseases. Additionally, benefits associated with rapid test kits such as low cost, accuracy, early disease diagnosis, quick results, stability at high temperature, among others are further expected to propel the market growth through 2026. Moreover, sudden outbreak and spread of pandemic COVID-19 has drastically increased the demand for rapid test kits, thereby fueling the market growth during the forecast period. Many major biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies have developed their own rapid test kits, and many are still investing, researching and working on the development of better and advanced rapid test kits. This in turn is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth over the next few years.

The global rapid test kit market is segmented based on type, product type, technology, duration, application, end-user, company and region. Based on product type, the market can be split into over-the-counter (OTC) rapid test kit and professional rapid test kit. Among these, the professional rapid test kit segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period owing to their widespread use for preliminary screening purposes at hospitals & clinics. Based on application, the market can be fragmented into infectious disease, cardiology, oncology, pregnancy & fertility, toxicology, glucose monitoring, and others. Here, the infectious disease segment is expected to hold a significant market share on account of rising number of infections across the globe. Furthermore, the glucose monitoring segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth on account of increasing diabetic cases.

Regionally, the global rapid test kit market has been segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, North America is expected to dominate in the overall rapid test kit market owing to the well-established healthcare infrastructure and presence of major pharmaceutical and biotechnology giants in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness robust growth in the market owing to presence of large pool of patients suffering from various life-threatening conditions in economies such as China and India.
