Overview of the global diagnostic testing of STDs market

The diagnostic testing of STDs market is largely driven by the growing incidences of STDs. Given this worrying fact, governments around the globe have begun implementing screening programs to diagnose STDs at an early stage and begin appropriate treatment. National screening programs are a great opportunity for POC and laboratory test providers, especially in diagnostic testing of STDs markets in the Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World regions. In addition, favorable reimbursements aimed at STD testing have also been issued, boosting the market for diagnostic testing of STDs.

On the other hand, the stigma associated with voluntary testing or client-initiated counseling and testing (CICT) of STDS is a major challenge in most countries even today. The irony is that a significant proportion of STD-infected patients are in regions that either do not have sufficient infrastructure for diagnostic testing of STDs or have no encouragement to get tested without being shamed. Apart from this, the presence of strict regulatory compliances for existing and new market players is restricting the growth of the diagnostic testing for STDs market.

Presently, North America and Europe dominate the global market owing to increased prevalence of STDs such as herpes simplex virus (HSV), chancroid, human papilloma virus (HPV), P&S syphilis, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
