In-Depth Analysis of the COVID-19 Impact on Global Swab and Viral Transport Medium Market

The global swab and viral transport medium market is estimated to exhibit a CAGR of 1.2 % over the forecast period 2020-2030, according to a new research by Future Market Insights (FMI).

An upswing in the sales of critical equipment with respect to collection and transportation of samples is currently underway. This has escalated the production of swab and viral transport medium, thereby driving the market.

To detect the viral RNA in human body; nasopharyngeal swab and deep nasal swab techniques are being used. The overall market is primarily driven by increased rate of flu in various regions. As per CDC, 2019-20 season has witnessed close to 20 Mn cases of influenza in the U.S. with 280,000 hospitalizations as on Feb 15, 2020.

At the same time, efforts taken by respective governments to increase awareness about flu, coupled with initiatives undertaken by World Health Organization (WHO), Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), etc. are expected to drive the market.  

“Expanded Program on Immunization” is one the initiatives taken by PAHO at the pan American level. In Jan 2020, GAVI, at the behest of MSF (Doctors without Borders) bulk brought cheaper pneumococcal vaccine for around 55 Mn children. The initiatives mentioned above would be taken up in the forecast period as well. That will certainly ask for more swab and viral transformation motion to be in place.
