Malaria, a mosquito-borne infectious disease, occurs commonly in tropical and sub-tropical regions. The malaria diagnostics market was worth about USD 145 million in 2015. It would grow to around USD 179 million by 2022. This may be attributed to potentially fatal illnesses globally. Around 3.3 billion people across the world face high infliction risks.
Demand for malaria diagnostics is driven by awareness regarding diagnostic tests. Also, people prefer superior-quality, yet affordable diagnostic methods. This brings about technological advancements. Modern & innovative technologies are expected to deliver higher efficiencies, thereby propelling market demand.

A key challenge for the malaria diagnostics market is malarial elimination in several countries. Oman, Iraq, Argentina, Armenia, etc. reported nil new indigenous cases of the disease in 2014. Moreover, El Salvador and Algeria reported less than 10 cases the same year. The WHO confirms that global fatalities from malaria have reduced by 60% since 2, 000.
The market may be segmented on the basis of diagnostic technologies and geographies. The diagnostic technologies are microscopy, rapid diagnostics tests (RDTs), and others. RDTs accounted for the largest share (over 62%) in 2015. They will be the fastest-growing (CAGR of 4%) technology in the next seven years.
Their advantages include fast results and high sensitivity. Moreover, RDTs do not require highly-skilled manpower. Therefore, they can be employed in remote areas like Africa, which lack good healthcare infrastructure and microscopy services.
India, with over 122 slide examinations, was the leading country for microscopy diagnostic technology in 2013. Globally, more than 190 million people were tested using this technology that year. Regional segmentation of the malaria diagnostics market consists of Europe, Africa, Eastern Mediterranean, Americas, South-East Asia, and Western Pacific.
