The global STD diagnostics market is anticipated to witness a higher CAGR in the forecast period. Sexually transmitted infections caused by HIV type 1 and type 2 pose as important study areas with reference to public health. Rise in mortality rate, cervical cancer, ectopic pregnancy and infertility as well as HIV-related illness, all leads to empirical study of HIV and STD simultaneously. Under a syndromatic approach, STD’s rely on using flowcharts for individual STI syndrome. The flowcharts allow diagnoses of common STD syndromes and availability of drugs and medication provision in a specific country.
The market for STD diagnostics is highly driven by rise in R&D activities and a significant shift observed in laboratory testing to point of care testing. Increasing cases of having multiple sex partners and practicing unsafe sex is likely to contribute in augmenting the market size in the near future. In addition, rise in drug addiction is indirectly proportional to the market growth.
