Early diagnosis is essential to provide timely treatment that can aid improved patient care. Rapid test kits are developed to detect the presence of virus at an early stage, making it easier to diagnose COVID-19 infection. Low cost and availability of nasopharyngeal swab samples have made them very popular in low and middle income countries of Latin America.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that more than 34 million COVID-19 positive cases are diagnosed in U.S. as of July 2021. The spread of the infection can be controlled by early diagnosis and treatment. The easy to use features of SARS-CoV-2 antigen rapid test kits will increase the demand of these test kits over the assessment period.

Point-of-care testing is gaining traction owing to its quick testing and convenient at home services. These factors are expected to boost the demand for point of care testing during the forecast period.

However, the demand for the Americas COVID-19 testing kits is expected to decline by the end of 2021 due to the development and launch of vaccines and initiation of vaccination drives by the government. However with frequent mutations and emergence of new strains of virus, the testing is expected to continue over the coming years.

“Government rules, mandating COVID-19 testing before international travel and frequent testing for frontline workers and doctors will boost the demand in the Americas COVID-19 testing kits market over the forecast period,” says the FMI analyst
