The COVID-19 pandemic was initially detected in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, and it has since spread to over 100 nations, prompting the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare it a public health emergency. Although the healthcare sector had witnessed SARS, H1N1, and other outbreaks in the last few years, the severity of the COVID-19 has made the situation more complicated due to its mode of transmission. North America has been witnessing a growing number of COVID-19 cases since its outbreak. Samples are taken from places likely to have high virus concentration, using a swab to collect samples from the back of the nose or mouth or through a bronchoalveolar lavage to collect samples from deep inside the lungs. Thus, swab collection is a vital step in effectively diagnosing an active infection of the novel coronavirus in the body. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) have established standard methods and recommendations for manufacturers to create COVID-19 sample collection and transport kits. With the rising number of hospitals expanding their testing capabilities, the demand for swab collection kits is escalating across the globe.
Asia Pacific held the largest market share in 2021. In Asia Pacific, India is the largest market for swabs collection kits. The market growth in Asia Pacific is mainly attributed to factors such as increasing cases of COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases., the lack of skilled professionals and limitation of swabs collection methods for instance, the rate of false-negative results in reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction testing is a great concern to hinder the market growth in Asia Pacific.
