Market Insights and Analyst View:

Rapid influenza diagnostic test (RIDT) is used to detect influenza virus by detecting the presence of viral antigens in a patient’s respiratory secretions, such as nasal swabs, throat swabs, and others. Sometimes, these are also used in conjunction with other diagnostic tests, such as polymerase chain reaction, which are more accurate than RIDT and tables time in producing results. The constant evolution of the influenza virus has increased the prevalence of influenza among large populations. The advancement in existing technology of rapid test kits is also evolving to enhance the accuracy and reduce the false negative test. Moreover, high risk of transmission and low vaccination rates in developing and underdeveloped economies are also expected to drive the rapid influenza diagnostic test market in near future.

Growth Drivers and Challenges:

Influenza, commonly known as flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza, which varies from year to year. It can be affected by various factors such as climate, population density and vaccination rates. In recent years the prevalence of influenza has increased globally. As per the article published in Forbes Health, ~9 million influenza cases were reported during 2021-2022 and caused 100,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths in the US. Additionally, influenza virus is constantly evolving through a process known as antigenic drift which allows then to evade the immune system and cause new outbreaks. This makes the vaccinated population susceptible to the new virus strains.

Influenza can have a high risk of transmission through the cough and sneeze of an infected person, and it can survive up to 48 hours, increasing the transmission rate and contributing to the prevalence of influenza. Moreover, low vaccination rates in developing and underdeveloped economies owing to the lack of access, hesitancy, and misinformation led to the increasing prevalence of influenza. Therefore, high risk of transmission and low vaccination rates contribute to the increasing prevalence of influenza, which drives the growth of RIDT market.

However, the increasing use of molecular diagnostic tests such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are more sensitive, accurate, and reliable compared to RIDT. Molecular diagnostic tests can detect the range of influenza viruses with faster results. The increased risk of false negative results with RIDT can also delay the diagnosis and treatment, worsening the overall patient condition. Moreover, lack of standardization and regulation of RIDT can lead to the variation in test results, making it difficult for healthcare providers to make appropriate choice for their patients. 

Furthermore, high cost of RIDT compared to conventional laboratory-based test can affect the demand in developing and underdeveloped economies, making it unaffordable. Therefore, high cost, lack of standard regulations, increase in false negative results, and rising inclination towards molecular diagnostics are expected to hamper the growth of the RIDT market.

Regional Analysis:

Based on geography, the rapid influenza diagnostic test market is categorized into five key regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa. In 2022, North America held the largest rapid influenza diagnostic test market share, closely followed by Europe, and Asia Pacific is anticipated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing prevalence of influenza and surge influenza-related hospitalization in the region primarily drive the North American market growth. The US is expected to hold the major market share in North America region owing to the rising prevalence of influenza. According to CDC estimates, flu has led to 140,000 – 710,000 hospitalizations, 9 million – 41 million illnesses, and 12,000 – 52,000 deaths annually during 2010 and 2020. Moreover, the country houses some of the major manufacturers in the country that are focused on the development of advanced rapid influenza diagnostic tests, which led to the surge in product launches. For instance, in October 2021, Hologic launched the Aptima SARS-CoV-2/Flu Assay is, a multiplex COVID-19/flu test in North America and Europe for the detection of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, and influenza B cause similar symptoms, including fever, cough, headache, and fatigue.  Furthermore, the increase in home healthcare led to the establishment of home-based influenza tests that are authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in case of emergency. For instance, in 2023, The US FDA approved Lucira COVID-19 & Flu Home Test, the first over-the-counter (OTC) at-home diagnostic test for emergency use authorization (EUA) for the diagnosis of influenza A and B, which is commonly known as the flu.

However, Asia Pacific registered as the fastest-growing region in the global rapid influenza diagnostic test market.
