DUBLIN, October 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Autoimmune Disease Diagnostics Market 2017-2021" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global autoimmune disease diagnostics market to grow at a CAGR of 6.39% during the period 2017-2021.
A trend contributing to market growth is the shift from monoplex to multiplex testing. The focus on multiplex testing is increasing, particularly in the area of in vitro diagnostics. Singleplex systems can analyze a single analyte from test samples for disease diagnosis. On the other hand, multiplexed assays can analyze samples by detecting multiple analytes from a single or multiple samples, offering a high-throughput solution. These multiplexed systems are cost-effective, require limited labor, and have increased efficiency and turnaround time in the delivery of results.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the discovery of novel biomarkers. Autoimmune diseases are of various types, with each individual exhibiting different symptoms if affected by at least two disease types. This makes it difficult for physicians to diagnose disease types. Biomarkers linked to autoimmune diseases are currently being discovered and studied, which has led to the development of biomarker-specific new diagnostic products. For instance, in 2013, researchers in the University of Cincinnati, US, identified various protein-based biomarkers associated with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the lack of skilled lab technicians. Autoimmune disease diagnostics involve analysis and presentation, increasing the need for a thorough understanding and knowledge of autoimmune diseases. They also increase the need for a thorough understanding about biomarker-specific assays and the working of automated tests. However, most hospitals and research centers do not have technicians who are thorough with these automated systems. This has increased the demand for technicians who can operate the equipment and immunodiagnostic tests. This has also led many medical facilities to avoid using automated systems due to the unavailability of skilled technicians.
