Rapid diagnostic testing, in context to infectious diseases, includes lateral flow, immunochromatographic tests that are used to detect certain infections. Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for infectious diseases have emerged as a promising tool to improve patient care, make timely optimization of antimicrobial use, and to prevent infection in the emergency department settings. Rapid diagnostic tests for infectious diseases have been widely implemented in laboratories and emergency rooms to expand the diagnosis of infection and facilitate antimicrobial stewardship in the emergency departments wherein rapid clinical decisions are imperative to prevent overcrowding and time pressure. Over the recent years, with recent advancements in technology, numerous rapid diagnostic testing kits have been introduced. Emergence of COVID-19 pandemic has further boosted demand for rapid test kits and this is expected to further drive market revenue growth over the coming years. In addition, stringent regulations regarding approval and high costs of certain diagnostic products are expected to restrain revenue growth of the market to a certain extent going ahead.
