Global COVID-19 Sample Collection Kits Research Report 2023-2030: Emerging Players Drive Revenue Growth Amid Shortage of Testing Materials

Dublin, Aug. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "COVID-19 Sample Collection Kits Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product (Swabs, Viral Transport Media), By Application, By Site of Collection, By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2023-2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global COVID-19 sample collection kits market size is expected to reach USD 1.26 billion by 2030 but it is expected to decline at a CAGR of -18.27% from 2023 to 2030.

With the continuous approval of diagnostic tests for effective diagnoses of SARS-CoV-2 infection, the demand for sample collection products, including swabs and Viral Transport Media (VTM), has surged. The shortage of testing materials such as swabs and reagents has led to the emergence of new players in the market, driving revenue growth.

Regulatory agencies have played a crucial role in propelling the market forward by ensuring product efficiency and expediting new approvals. Thermo Fisher Scientific, for example, introduced the TaqPath COVID-19 Fast PCR Combo Kit 2.0 in June 2021.

This innovative assay design accurately identifies and diagnoses existing and new COVID-19 variations, with a two-hour turnaround time and high-frequency testing. Such developments prioritize patient comfort and convenience while minimizing infection risk for healthcare professionals.

Moreover, the market has witnessed significant funding to boost swab production, a critical need of the hour. Organizations like the Washington Entrepreneurial Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hub (WE-REACH), the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are actively contributing to this effort, promoting organic revenue growth in the industry.

As the demand for diagnostic testing continues to rise, these developments indicate a positive trajectory for the market, enhancing testing capabilities and contributing to the ongoing fight against the pandemic.

COVID-19 Sample Collection Kits Market Report Highlights

  • By product, swabs captured the highest revenue share of 40.95% in 2022. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the WHO have recommended nasopharyngeal swab-based diagnostic tests as the preferred mode of testing for SARS-CoV-2 detection. The large volume and usage rate of nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swabs has contributed to the growth of this product in the global market
  • The diagnostics application segment held the market share of use of 69.89% in 2022. A continuous increase in the number of approvals by the U.S. FDA has significantly propelled segment growth
  • By the site of collection, hospitals and clinics are estimated to account for the largest revenue share of 91.99% in 2022 due to the exponential increase in the number of hospitalizations related to the coronavirus.
  • The U.S. dominated the North American market in 2021 owing to the largest number of cases and tests carried out in the country. The presence of key players such as COPAN Diagnostics and Roche in the region contributes to the region's total revenue
