Lateral flow assays are devices used to confirm the presence or absence of a target analyte without the need for lab equipment. These devices are widely used in hospitals and clinical laboratories for the qualitative and quantitative detection of specific antigens and antibodies. It is a simple and low-cost technology used in qualitative and quantitative detection of pathogens or biomarkers in humans or animals, or contaminants or toxic elements in water supplies, foodstuffs, or animal feeds. The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the benefits of LFA-based rapid tests over laboratory testing, increasing usage of home-based lateral flow assay kits, growing demand for point-of-care testing, increasing prevalence of chronic & infectious diseases, and growing acceptance of smart devices. In addition, evolving applications of lateral flow assays and rising demand for lateral flow assays in the food & beverage industry offer significant growth opportunities for players operating in the lateral flow assays market.
