The global zika virus testing market experienced a moderate incline, experiencing a CAGR of just above 2% between 2017 and 2020, being valued at a little over US$ 4 billion, as per ESOMAR-certified firm Future Market Insights (FMI) latest report on the landscape. Growth was majorly underpinned by the introduction of numerous point-of-care powerful testing approaches to facilitate timely detection of the virus.
According to FMI’s analysis, clinicians have been exhibiting a high preference towards enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) tests. Compared to other immunoassay methods, ELISA tests are more accurate, are considered highly sensitive, specific and compare favorably with other methods used to detect substances in the body, such as radioimmune assay (RIA) tests.

Prominent players are experiencing immense growth opportunities across tropical regions, attributed to the high concentration rate of the zika virus across such regions as the Caribbean, Central America, Africa and the Asian sub-continent. Players such as EUROIMMUN have emerged at the forefront, being the first diagnostics company to provide a testing approach to detect the zika virus. Its product lines include the Anti-Zika Virus ELISA (IgA or IgG or IgM or IgAM) fully automatable test and the IIFT Arbovirus Fever Mosaic 2 (IgG or IgM) test.

Key Takeaways from FMI’s Zika Virus Testing Market Study
By test type, ELISA-based zika virus testing surpassed US$ 4 billion until 2020
By end-user, private commercial laboratories to remain primary point of contact for availing zika virus testing
Multiple regulatory approvals for various testing approaches by the FDA to bolster US zika virus testing market growth
Brazil to attract major zika virus testing providers amid increasing governmental initiatives to contain its spread
Growing focus on pregnant women’s health to accelerate testing volumes in Puerto Rico
UK to experience limited uptake amid the non-notifiable nature of the disease due to limited outbreaks
“Rising government initiatives to address possible suspected infection cases are providing a wide platform for the introduction of advanced zika virus testing approaches, providing key players a chance to expand their footprints across key geographies,” says the FMI analyst.
Prominent zika virus testing manufacturers are reliant on offering advanced testing approaches in order to yield quicker results so as to facilitate timely treatment. Besides, key research laboratories and organizations also emphasize on expanding their testing capabilities by virtue of strategic acquisition and collaboration agreements.
In 2017, the US FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to authorize the RealStar® Zika Virus RT-PCR Kit for the in vitro qualitative detection of Zika virus with specified instruments. This test is offered by Altona Diagnostics GmbH, and tests presence of the virus in human serum, EDTA plasma and/or urine.
Similarly, ARUP Laboratories offers both serology and RT-PCR tests for detecting the zika virus. The former is called the Zika Virus IgM Antibody Capture (MAC) based on the ELISA technique. In the latter case, the test is conducted by collecting patients’ blood or urine samples.
