Asia Pacific to Lead Global Pharyngitis Diagnostic Market

  • Europe is a mature market for pharyngitis diagnostics; therefore, the market in the region has been stagnant. The growth rate witnessed by the market in Europe has been sluggish due to a well-established network of major market players, which creates relatively fewer opportunities for growth and business expansion for new market entrants. However, rise in geriatric population and favorable health care reimbursement regulations are likely to drive the market in the region during the forecast period.
  • The pharyngitis diagnostic market in several countries in Asia, including Malaysia, India, and China, is untouched or significantly underpenetrated as compared to that in countries in North America and Europe. This is primarily due to a lack of access to pharyngitis diagnostics in these countries and low level of awareness. These markets offer immense opportunities for pharyngitis diagnostics on account of factors such as presence of a large potential population base coupled with continuous economic development witnessed in several countries across Asia. Geographic expansion by major global players in Asia Pacific through distribution and licensing agreements with local distributors and increasing prevalence of pharyngitis in the region are likely to fuel the market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period.
