HIV Diagnostics Market: Overview and Share Forecast to 2024

Smartphone’s multifunctionality as a HIV detection tool

Toward the end of 2018, a new research from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital launched a tool to diagnose HIV with the help of smartphones, setting a new benchmark in the technology landscape of HIV diagnostics market. The tool which uses a cellphone and nanotechnology to identify the virus is highly portable, affordable, and accessible especially for resource-limited economies. As per reliable reports, the accuracy of the platform was within specificity of 99.1% and 94/6% sensitivity at the clinically relevant threshold of 1,000 virus particles per mL. Reportedly, the total cost of the entire setup was less than $5 per test, making it a highly economic tool in the low-income countries.

Besides these developments, another pivotal factor that is estimated to drive the HIV diagnostics adoption and demand trends is the regulatory scenario. In fact, a favorable regulatory scenario along with the high-end healthcare infrastructure has made the U.S. one of the pivotal regions witnessing a rather profound expansion of HIV diagnostics market. As per a report by Global Market Insights, the U.S. HIV diagnostics market led the entire North America landscape, with a recorded share of USD 876.8 million in 2017. In the coming years, though the region will be one of the major growth pockets for HIV diagnostics market players, it is undeniable that the penetration rate would soar high in the emerging countries.

The 2018 was undoubtedly one of the most remarkable years pertaining to the developments in HIV diagnostics industry. The year witnessed a slew of technological advancements and collaborations aiming toward ending the AIDS epidemic, which is rightly touted as one of the most serious health concerns worldwide. HIV related causes, as per the World Health Organization, claimed approximately 940 000 lives in 2017 globally. At the end of 2017, 36.9 million people worldwide were diagnosed living with HIV, a disease that has claimed almost 35 million lives so far. In recognition of this alarming morbidity and mortality rate, the global health community in tandem with the regulatory bodies are striving hard to provide effective treatments and diagnostic approaches accessible to the HIV-infected individuals world over.

Low-and middle-income Economies are the most potential yet underpenetrated avenue for the HIV diagnostics industry players

As per UNAIDS, low-and middle-income countries have the highest ratio of people living with HIV. In 2017, 53% of the overall HIV-infected patient base were living in eastern and southern Africa, 16% in western and central Africa, 14% in Asia, and 6% in western and central Europe and North America. The statistics are a validation to the penetration scope of HIV diagnostics market participants in the low-and middle-income countries. These countries undoubtedly can be one of the most prominent recipients of the POC self-tests diagnostic approach, given a large pool of population in these countries burdened with either the unawareness of the epidemic or lack of treatment accessibility.

2018 Highlights of the HIV diagnostics industry penetration in low-and middle-income economies

Mylan’s collaboration agreement with Atomo Diagnostics

In 2018, Mylan N.V., the renowned generic and specialty pharmaceuticals company, made it to the headlines post its announcement of collaborative agreement with Atomo Diagnostics. The deal was announced as a strategy to make point of care rapid self-tests accessible in the low-and middle income economies wherein people can be more aware about their HIV status and seek treatment based on the results. As a part of the deal, Mylan received rights for the commercialization of CE-Marked in-vitro diagnostic tests in more than 100 countries across Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the CIS and Latin America.

Kenya Medical Research Institute’s (KEMRI) collaboration with Roche for establishment of an advanced HIV diagnostic laboratory

In a bid to achieve the elimination of AIDS and HIV from the country by 2030, KEMRI announced ITS collaboration with Swiss pharmaceutical giant, Roche to launch an advanced HIV testing laboratory. Dubbed as Cobas 8800, the new laboratory is claimed to test approximately 1 million people yearly. The launch is touted as one of its kind in terms of its rapidity, functionality, and accuracy. The deal also marked Kenya in the ranks of Uganda and South Africa which are the only African countries with Roche’s hi-tech HIV diagnostic laboratory.

Innovative and technologically advanced product launches chiefly characterized the HIV diagnostics industry landscape in 2018

As per WHO, new HIV infections observed a decline of 36% between 2000-2017. During the same period, HIV related deaths fell by 38%, owing to ART (antiretroviral therapy). The numbers are undoubtedly a result of the conjoint efforts of the regulatory bodies as well as healthcare companies which are constantly developing accessible, convenient, and affordable POC tools to reach out to the HIV infected masses.
