The global allergy diagnostics and therapeutics market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR exceeding 12% during the forecast period (2016 to 2022). This attributes to the problem of environmental pollution and high incidence of allergic diseases. The probability of children below 14 years of age being afflicted with chronic allergies is a prominent factor that fuels industry demand. Frequent need for in-vitro blood tests may drive this market over the forecast period. Widespread adoption of diagnostics for treating inhaled allergies caused by air pollution could significantly contribute to demand. Nowadays, people are highly susceptible to allergies because of changing lifestyles, unhealthy dietary patterns, and urbanization.
The worldwide allergy diagnostics and therapeutics market is categorized on the basis of products, type of allergens, end uses, tests, drug classes, and geographies. On the basis of products, the segments are services, consumables, and instruments. Immunoassay analyzers, luminometers, and other diagnostic devices are few of the commonly used equipment. Popularity of immunoassay analyzers is by far the highest in most developing economies of the world. Various types of allergens are drug allergens, inhaled allergens, food allergens, and others. Inhaled allergens held the highest industry share over the past couple of years because of numerous cases of air pollution based allergies.
