Impact of COVID-19 on Pneumococcal Testing Market

The global pneumococcal testing market is projected to expand on the back of ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Being one of the leading causes of mortality among children, pneumococcal testing is necessary for identifying the vulnerable groups during the widespread outbreak. Moreover, immunization programs, led by WHO and UNICEF are propelling the demand for pneumococcal testing. However, the market may witness a brief slowdown as leading pharmaceutical companies, vaccine developers, and research institutes are currently focused on creating a vaccine for COVID-19. The market will regain its pace once the pandemic begins to recede.

Competition Analysis

Some of the prominent companies in global pneumococcal testing market that are profiled in this FMI report include, but are not limited to, Abbott Laboratories, F-Hoffman la Roche Ltd, and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. Established players continue to do extensive research and development to offer more accurate testing. Prevention and timely detection will be the new fundamentals of future healthcare systems. Hence, all major strategies of industry leaders will be aligned towards that principle. Moreover, key companies will channel substantial resources towards syndromic screening approach, and point of care infection control. Strategic acquisition remains key collaborative approach of market leaders as well. For instance, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. acquired QIAGEN N.V. in March 2020 which strengthened R&D expertise and industry-leading capabilities of both companies.
