Lateral Flow Assay Market Introduction 

Lateral flow assay market envisioned to value over US$ 9.7 Billion by 2027 end and register a CAGR of over 6.9% from 2020 to 2027.
Lateral flow assay is a procedure to confirm the presence or absence of a target analyte in a sample. These are used for home testing and laboratory use. They are vastly used in hospitals for the detection of antibodies.

Lateral Flow Assay Market Overview
The market is bifurcated on the basis of the product type, indications and distribution channel. On product type, the market is segmented into readers and LFA kits. Readers consist of handheld readers & bench top readers. A gradual increase in portability has enhanced the preference of handheld readers. LFA kits consist of a test strip, dipstick, cassette & lancets. Rising demand for test strip among consumers is expected to inflate the size of the market during the forecast period. The manufacturers are aiming to develop quick, easy to use qualitative design products thus resulting in expansion of the market. 

Based on the distribution channel, the market is bifurcated into hospital pharmacies, retail pharmacies, supermarket/hypermarket & e-commerce. Retail pharmacies are currently dominating the market. However, e-commerce is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Based on indications, the market is segmented into infectious diseases, pregnancy, and drug abuse testing. Infectious diseases consist of mosquito-borne diseases, streptococcus infections, sexually transmitted infections (STI), hepatitis, tuberculosis (TB), gastrointestinal infections & others. Increasing prevalence regarding mosquito-borne diseases is stimulating the growth of the market. 
However, time consuming and strict policies coupled with the inconsistency of test results are expected to hinder the growth of the market.

Based on geographical regions, North America accounts for the largest share of the market. North America dominates the marker owing to rapid demand for home health care coupled with the presence of large key players. Asia Pacific regions remain lucrative for the forecast period due to high awareness and high prevalence of viral diseases remain a key factor for the growth of the market in the region.
Prominent players of the market are Hoffman-La Roche Ltd, Becton Dickinson and Company, Alere Inc., Abbott Laboratories, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Johnson & Johnson and Siemens AG
