The global lateral flow assay components market is projected to reach USD 420 million by 2027 from USD 339 million in 2022. The major factors driving growth in the lateral flow assay components market are the growing usage of home-based lateral flow assays and the growing demand for superior, consistent, and high-performing diagnostic kits. Moreover, the recent COVID-19 outbreak has positively affected the demand for lateral flow assay components to cater to the demand for manufacturing rapid test kits to detect the SARS-CoV 2 infection.
However, the low performance of lateral flow assay components leading to the inconsistent accuracy of certain lateral flow assay tests compared to other methods and the limited adoption of lateral flow assay kits due to the availability of other technologies are the key factors restraining the growth of the lateral flow assay components market.
