Increasing spending on drug development for arthritis and other musculoskeletal diseases and financial support by government authorities to monitor rheumatoid arthritis prevalence are prime factors driving the growth of rheumatoid arthritis tests market. Moreover, increasing the prevalence of autoimmune diseases and unavailability of medication are boosting the growth of the RA treatment efficiency monitoring tests market. However, high-cost novel test kits, limited sensitivity and specificity and strong retaliation from local manufacturers regarding sales of these kits are some of the prominent factors impeding the growth of rheumatoid arthritis tests market.
Global rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis tests market has been estimated to be valued at US$ 485.5 Mn in 2015, and is anticipated to increase to US$ 738.7 Mn by 2022, registering a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period.
By test type, the global rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis tests market is segmented into serology test and RA treatment efficiency monitoring tests. Serology test segment is further sub-segmented into erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), rheumatoid factor (RF), anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP), antinuclear antibody (ANA), uric acid test, other tests. RA treatment efficiency monitoring tests segment is further sub-segmented into Salicylate Level Count, Muscle Enzyme Tests (CPK, Aldolase) and Creatinine Test.
By end user, the global rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis tests market is segmented into hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, and ambulatory surgical centers. Diagnostic laboratory segment is further sub-segmented into private laboratories and public laboratories.
By region, the Europe and Asia Pacific regions have been estimated to remain dominant with over 61% share of the global market by 2022. This is mainly due to increase prevalence of autoimmune diseases and higher adoption of novel RA diagnostic kits. North America market is estimated to lose 60 BPS over the forecast period, owing to a slight decrease in the prevalence rate of rheumatoid arthritis.
