By End-user, the Medical device manufacturing companies segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024


By Geography, North America  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

The Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) market encompasses technologies that utilize the sandwich assay technique for detecting target antigens in various samples. This method involves the use of two antibodies: a capture antibody, which is immobilized on a solid support, and a detection antibody. The antigen of interest is sandwiched between these antibodies, resulting in a positive test outcome denoted by the appearance of a colored line at the test line position. The sandwich assay's efficiency and accuracy make it an indispensable tool in industries such as diagnostics, food testing, and environmental monitoring.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The lateral flow assay components market in North America holds a significant market share, driven by the region's advanced healthcare system and increasing incidence of chronic diseases such as Lyme disease and tuberculosis. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 16 million influenza infections occurred in the US in 2020, resulting in an estimated 380,000 hospitalizations. This underscores the importance of diagnostic tools like lateral flow assays in managing infectious diseases. Major vendors are capitalizing on this trend by focusing on the US market to expand their market presence and meet the growing demand for diagnostic solutions. The adoption of advanced PCR diagnostic technologies has also fueled the need for regular testing and medical check-ups, further boosting the market growth in North America.
