Viral Antigens Market Analysis

The rising prevalence of viral infections worldwide, including, HIV, influenza, hepatitis, and respiratory viruses like COVID-19, drives the demand for viral antigens which are used in diagnostic studies. Advancements in molecular biology, government initiatives for vaccine development against emerging viruses, increasing R&D activities for diagnostic technique development and vaccine development, and increasing investment in viral antigen research is fueling the growth of the viral antigen market.

Viral Antigens Market Overview

A virus can infect all types of life forms, from plants and animals to archaea and bacteria. A virus antigen is a poison or toxic substance administered by a virus that induces an immune reaction in its host. A viral protein is an antigen identified by the viral genome that can be recognized through a particular immunological response. A viral antigen is determined by IFA in neutrophils and platelets from bone marrow or blood or in serum, saliva, tears, or plasma by ELISA. Nucleic amplification tests can also be used to determine the stage of infection. The best outcomes are obtained when antigens are measured through blood tests or serum.

Viral Antigens Market Drivers and Opportunities

Increased Awareness of Viral Antigens in Vaccine Development

Viral antigens play an important role in vaccine development, as they are the component detected by immune system for protection. For instance, when a person is infected with a virus, their immune system recognises specific viral antigens as foreign and mounts a response to eliminate the virus. Viral antigens in vaccines exposes the immune system to these specific anitgens in a controlled manner and thus helping the person to develop immune response against the virus.  The development and use of vaccines has greatly reduced the number of illnesses and diseases over the years. The introduction of a variety of new types of vaccines has been made possible through the manipulation of DNA, RNA, proteins and sugars, increased knowledge of immune response, and a major leap in genetic engineering. Development of attenuated mutants, expression of possible antigens in live vectors, and purification and direct synthesis of antigens in new systems have significantly enhanced the vaccine technology. Thus, increased acceptance of viral antigens in vaccine development is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Growing Awareness about Preventive Healthcare – An Opportunity of Viral Antigens Market

Preventive healthcare focuses on preventing health problems from occurring and also focuses on diagnosing problems before any symptoms or complications are developed. Vaccination plays a crucial role in preventive healthcare as it can build a person’s immunity for the viral infections before the person is exposed to the virus. In case of preventive healthcare, the vaccines developed are generally made up of viral antigens so that the immune system detect them. Thus, increasing awareness about preventive healthcare through vaccination is fueling the growth of the viral antigens market.

Viral Antigens Market Report Segmentation Analysis

Key segments that contributed to the derivation of the Viral Antigens Market analysis are component, technique, and end user.
