Malaria is caused by the Plasmodium parasites and is transmitted by the female anopheles mosquito. Diagnosis of malaria includes detection by microscopy and blood tests. According to the WHO, in 2012, there were an estimated 203 million cases of malaria, which resulted in an estimated 627,000 deaths. Accurate and early diagnosis of malaria is important as the patients recover rapidly if treatment is started early and this has spurred investments in diagnostic techniques. This has led to technological advancements in development of rapid diagnostic tests and is the major driver for growth of this market. The challenges faced by this market are in accelerating the acceptance of diagnostic tests and their use in diagnosis of malaria. WHO updated its guidelines for treatment of malaria and it recommends testing all suspected cases of malaria. Initiatives by global partners have been undertaken to provide universal access to diagnostic kits.

Malaria Diagnostics Market by Technique

Diagnosis of malaria is by use of Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDT’s), Molecular diagnostics and detection of parasites by microscopy. Malaria RDTs have revolutionized diagnosis of malaria and are in high demand. The tests are rapid with results available in 15- 30 minutes. The tests detect the presence of antigens of the malaria parasites. Different types of RDT’s are available for diagnosis, some detecting single species of plasmodium, while others are able to detect multiple species.

Malaria Diagnostics Market by Geography

Malaria diagnostic market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Row. Asia Pacific and RoW dominate this market, as the prevalence of malaria is high in these regions. Africa has a high prevalence of malaria and majority of deaths are reported in these regions.

Competitive Analysis

The companies in this market include Beckman Coulter, bioMerieux, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Novartis Diagnostics, Seimens Healthcare, Ortho- Clinical Diagnostics and others. In April 2013, Lumora, a Molecular Diagnostic company, announced a partnership with Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) for developing a rapid, high throughput malaria diagnostic assay that would allow screening on a large scale.
