Global Saliva Based Home Test Kits Market Forecast From 2022

Posted by sandeep gade on September 23rd, 2022

The Saliva Based Home Test Kits Market  is ascertained to make greater strides in the future. The present-day and futuristic cutting-edge technology, namely IoT, AI, and Big Data operate better in a lightning-fast and reliable internet connection. The benefits of high-speed internet would be seen in telecare in the next 2-3 years, but going forward, more authentic data streams are likely to come up with better-connected devices, thereby revolutionizing the healthcare system.

According to the latest research by Persistence Market Research, the saliva based home test kits market is set to witness a growth of 10.2 during 2021-2031. Saliva based home test kits are rapid diagnostic test kits used for point of care (POC)/ at home test. It is available over the counter (OTC) either as membrane based test strips often enclosed by a plastic test cassette.

Saliva sample testing helps to check or monitor for certain drugs, hormones and antibodies in the body. It allows the user to test self-collected specimen and detect any undiagnosed disease or conditions at an early stage. The results are obtained in no time at the convenience of home without any clinical set-ups.

These test kits are different when compared to the home- collection test kits, where the sample is collected at home and sent to laboratory to obtain result in a week time. Primary advantage of using a saliva specimen over blood sample is its ease of collection, cost effectiveness, safety, non-invasive, user friendly along with abundance of biomarkers present in saliva such as genetic material and proteins.

Demand for Saliva Based Home Test Kits is expected to witness an optimistic growth outlook in the long run. Increasing number of infection cases further raised the demand for these saliva based home test kits with the motive of improving the turnaround time of detection of infected patients. The growing advancement for the Saliva Based Home Test Kits market industry will offer lucrative opportunities in near future.

Venipuncture or Invasive phlebotomy, is the most common invasive procedure where the blood is collected from a vein using a needle for testing and diagnosing purpose. Although reasonably safe, some studies suggested the incidence of serious complication due to poor infection-control practices, resulting in pain or bruising or even microbial infections at puncture site. Thereby, increasing the risk of transmitting blood borne pathogens to both patients and healthcare workers.

These potential demerits of invasive phlebotomy lead to the use of non-invasive techniques such as using saliva or urine as a sample for disease diagnosis. Such procedures are simple, safe and painless and does not require special equipment for collection. Availability of home based test kits have further made it easier for quick self-diagnosis and early detection of disease, without the need of clinical equipment.

Potential application of Saliva based home test kits include early diagnosis of HIV, malaria detection, determination of ovulation, determination of drug substance in specimen, COVID-19 testing.

An increasing awareness amongst population for early detection of disease at the convenience of home is likely to boost the demand for the saliva based home test kits market in the forecasted period.

The field of saliva based home test kit is witnessing series of advancements and is further expected to offer effective diagnostic solutions for many infectious disease. Certain factors associated with these kits which may lead to inaccurate results include conditions such as gingivitis or gum disorder or Sjogren’s syndrome

Smoking, eating, drinking or brushing the teeth before collecting saliva sample can also affect the test result. However, the increasing inclination of consumers to detect potential health problems at the earliest is making the home testing trend more desirable.

Several companies in the growing markets, are at the forefront, striving to capitalize on the untapped potential of the market for saliva based home test kits. To increase the reach of effective home test kits, continuous focus on successful commercialization of new technologies for the diagnosis of infectious disease are being undertaken by many organization serving this field. This will lead to the growth of the market in the forecasted period.

North America market growth is largely driven by high prevalence of diseases such as HIV.

As per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report in 2019, in USA, an estimated 13% of patients living with HIV are unaware of their status while young people aged 13 to 24 accounted for 21% of all new HIV diagnoses.

Early detection of such cases can reduce future complications as well as risk of transmission associated with these diseases. The FDA approved OraQuick In-Home HIV test kit can test for HIV antibody present in saliva and help detect the virus within 2-3 weeks of exposure.

Alternatively, technological advancements, industrial research programs along with government involvement to develop low cost and single use devices as futuristic approach in this segment are expected to further improve the market scenario of saliva based home test kits. With increasing incidence of diseases such as HIV, it is believed to promote the growth of the market in the forecasted period.

Europe is anticipated to be the second largest market for Saliva based home test kits. Growing research and development activities to develop more specific saliva based test kits, presence of key market players, and increase in the clinical trials in the European region which will further facilitate the growth of the market in the forecasted period.

However, there are still lacks in the regulatory approvals of the European nations which will lead to slow growth but will soon grasp the growth of the market over forecast years.
