COVID-19 sample collection kits are used to collect the biological collection of specimens for testing the presence of novel coronavirus n the body. The kits play a vital role in collecting both swabs nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal (OP) specimens. The Center for disease prevention and control (CDC) recommended following the guidelines and has been recommended to take nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs of asymptomatic persons. Thus, the testing kits have the all-in-one solution for transport, biological specimen collection, handling, and testing clinical specimens from Persons Under Investigation (PUIs) for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Market Dynamics

The global COVID-19 sample collection kits market growth is driven by several factors such as increasing cases of COVID-19, detection of new variants of severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus and various novel innovations.

Increasing number of COVID-19 cases and new variants is expected to drive the global COVID-19 sample collection kits market during the forecast period.

The market is driven by the rising prevalence of the infectious disease covid-19 with a surge in the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide and the absence of adequate laboratory-based molecular testing facilities. According to the World meter Stats, the covid-19 infected cases reached more than 14,648,444 with 609,008 deaths. Thus, the demand for specimen collection kits for covid-19 testing has been increased to process and detect Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea.

There is a rise in the Food & Drugs Administration approval for advanced technology base testing kits, which can help in the early detection of covid-19 infections has created a huge opportunity for this market. For instance, on 21st April 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized to sell the Coronavirus (COVID-19) First Test for Patient At-Home Sample Collection. This diagnostic test kit was for self-collecting the samples by patients at home developed by Laboratory Corporation of America (LabCorp) COVID-19 RT-PCR Test to permit testing samples with the help of LabCorp’s Pixel by LabCorp COVID-19 Test home collection kit.

Lack of test kits and strict regulatory framework are likely to hinder the market growth

Shortage or lack of test kits during the need is a biggest barrier as cases increases suddenly and unavailability at that moment makes it difficult to meet the demands on time, scarcity of advance medical facility, unavailability of laboratory reagents and strict regulatory framework these all can be restraining factors for the growth of global COVID-19 sample collection market.
