Lack of Better Infrastructure and Healthcare Facilities Dampens Adoption of Cytology and HPV Testing: Transparency Market Research

ALBANY, New York, July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The competitive landscapes of the cytology testing market and the human papillomavirus (HPV) testing market are both oligopolistic in nature. Transparency Market Research has found that a handful of large companies have been enjoying dominance over the global scenario, thereby reducing the level of competition and making the entry of new players extremely difficult.

Qiagen N.V., Hologic, Inc., and F.Hoffman-La Roche AG together enjoy a massive 86% of the HPV testing market. "Considering that the market shares of the first and second place companies catering to the demand for HPV testing are rather close, upcoming approvals for new screening tests are likely to have a significant impact on their position in the market," the author of the study states. For instance, the 2014 approval of Roche's cobas HPV test by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has resulted in the upsurge of the company's market share from what it was a couple of years ago.

Similarly, Hologic and Becton Dickinson account for 89% of the cytology testing market. The only competition observed by TMR in this area of the market is currently in the segment of Pap tests in the U.S., which is a lucrative avenue for cytology testing. However, non-FDA approved tests also pose a threat to the present status of players.

"Companies in the overall cytology and HPV testing market have been relying on international expansions and collaborations to retain their dominance," the analyst states. Direct engagement with diagnostic laboratories and contracting with governments for patient care programs are also a few key strategies adopted by the players.

Disparate Levels of Awareness among Patients Regarding Cytology and HPV Testing 

The growing incidence of cervical cancer as well as HPV infections is the single most important factor driving the demand for cytology and HPV testing. The number of new cases of cervical cancer and the number of deaths resulting from this chronic condition have propelled patients to opt for early detection and diagnosis methods. The rise in awareness about the commercial availability of screening tests has driven the adoption of cytology testing. The high incidence rate of HPV infections and growing awareness regarding the threat that these infections pose to the immune system have fueled HPV testing and Pap smear screening.

However, TMR has observed that several emerging markets present a similar challenge. "The lack of access to better healthcare and infrastructure for women and the presence of outdated facilities in most developing countries restrict the large-scale adoption of cytology and HPV testing," the analyst states.
