Market Dynamics:


Hepatitis is a highly prevalent public health concern. However, hepatitis is also one of the preventable and treatable diseases with easily accessible services at hospitals and clinics. For instance, in July 2022 as per the data published by WHO on World Hepatitis Day hepatitis C shows that there are 67,000 new infections in the Americas and 84,000 deaths each year. Furthermore, WHO estimates that 296 million people were living with chronic hepatitis B virus infection and 58 people with chronic hepatitis C virus infection. Globally, these infections are major causes of acute and chronic liver disease, causing around 1.1 million deaths annually in 2019.

However, about 22% of people chronically infected with Hepatitis C have been diagnosed, and just 18% of them have received treatment in the U.S. Thus, the increasing prevalence of the hepatitis infection is prompting the adoption of hepatitis diagnostic tests to minimize the occurrence of hepatitis, which in turn accelerating the market growth.


The high cost of diagnostics tests can hinder their widespread adoption and limit access to accurate and timely hepatitis diagnosis. For instance, as per WHO, Governments provide an average of 51% of a country\'s health spending, while more than 35% of health spending per country comes from out-of-pocket expenses. Furthermore, medical diagnostic test costs are high and growing at an unstainable rate due to continuous advancements in technology. Hence, the high cost of hepatitis diagnostic tests is restraining the growth of the market.


The continuous advancement in diagnostic technologies such as pot-of-care testing (POC), molecular diagnosis, and advanced imaging technologies provide opportunities for the hepatitis diagnosis market. These advancements offer faster, more accurate, and cost-effective diagnostic solutions. Leading to improved patient management and outcomes. For instance, in March 2020, Abbott launched a molecular point-of-care test. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the fastest available molecular point-of-care test. Henceforth, strategic collaborations related to the development of advanced diagnostic technology will create opportunities for the Hepatitis Diagnostic Test Market in the forecast year.

Hepatitis Diagnostic Test Market Segmentation:


By Test Type:

The test type segment is classified into blood test, imaging test, and liver biopsy. In 2022, the blood test segment accounted for the highest market share in the hepatitis diagnostic test market. The blood test is performed to analyze the type of viral hepatitis, the severity of the infection, and whether the person is currently contagious. Also, it is the first line of diagnosis option to whether a virus is acute or chronic. The blood test segment is further divided into immunoassay, liver function tests, and nucleic acid amplification testing (NAT). Blood tests including immunoassay, liver function tests, and nucleic acid amplification testing (NAT) are crucial tests to perform and are most used to the detection and guide the treatment of viral hepatitis infection. For instance, in May 2022, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) encourages screening, testing, and vaccination during Hepatitis Awareness Month to Reduce the Spread of Disease. Additionally, In April 2020, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released updated HCV testing recommendations that promote one lifetime HCV test, screening during each pregnancy, and repeat testing for individuals who are at higher risk. Thus, the increasing adoption of blood tests is favoring market growth.

Hence, blood tests can detect the sign of hepatitis infection and other infections, which is helpful in further treatment, thereby enabling the growth of the segment.

By Technology:

The technology segment is divided into point-of-care (POC), radioimmunoassay (RIA), polymer chain reaction (PCR), ELISA, and others. In 2022, the point-of-care (POC) segment accounted for the highest market share in the hepatitis diagnostic test market. The point-of-care (POC) technology ensures immediate and informed change in patient management, potentially facilitating a reduced number of visits leading to increased linkage to care. Additionally, collection can be performed by peers or other people who are not practitioners due to the easy accessibility and ease to use. The adoption of point-of-care (POC) technology has increased over time. For instance, In January 2023, as per a new study by WHO, hepatitis VL assays performed on point-of-care (POC) devices outside of the laboratory and in a clinic near patients receiving care are being increasingly used as an alternative approach to laboratory-based diagnosis.

Further, WHO recommended the adoption of POC HCV viral load testing as an alternative approach to laboratory-based platforms for diagnosing HCV infection and speeding up starting curative treatment. Thus, due to the above factors, the implementation of advanced technology in the hepatitis diagnostic test is accelerating the growth of the segment.
