Allergy Diagnostic Consumables Hold Dominant Share in 2015
By product, the consumables segment held the dominant share in the global allergy diagnostics market in 2015 and is likely to continue its lead throughout the forecast period. The low cost and high volume of consumables such as reagents and pipettes is the main factor responsible for the growth of the consumables segment.
Based on allergen type, inhaled allergens led the global allergy diagnostics market. Factors such as increased hygiene, especially in western countries, the lack of exposure to allergens at an early age, changing climatic conditions leading to strong and longer pollen seasons, the rise in tobacco smoking, and increased air pollution around the world are expected to drive the inhaled allergens segment during the forecast period. However, changing food habits and the increased consumption of packed and processed foods will lead to phenomenal growth in the food allergens segment by 2024.
Alarming Levels of Asthma and Inhaled Allergies Driving North America and Europe Market
North America led the global allergy diagnostics market with a share of more than 40% in 2015. According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI), approximately 26 million people in the U.S. suffered from allergic rhinitis in 2015, while around 15 million suffered from food allergies the same year.
