Key Developments in the Market

  • In December 2021, Roche launched a combined rapid antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza A and B. The test was designed for commercial use in the healthcare segment, facilitating the medical staffing easy identification and differentiation of the infection. According to the firm, the test possesses the ability to offer 84.85% and 98.59% accuracy in the detection of influenza and covid infection.
  • In November 2021, a UK-based digital, healthcare-at-home-firm announced the launch of a flu-detecting and treatment mobile application to facilitate efficient detection and swifter flu treatment at initial stages in elderlies. Powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence, the new offering, Flu-ID, helps in identifying the possible symptoms of the flu virus in patients thirty times swifter than current practices in the market. Flu-ID monitors the recorded health indications and identifies the onset of symptoms, and warns the healthcare providers to deal with the infection and prevent hospitalization.

COVID-19 Insights

COVID-19 had a positive impact on the Europe Flu diagnostic and treatment market. Due to the similarity of the two diseases' symptoms and the speed with which they spread, medical professionals had to do both diagnostic tests for each virus in order to provide effective treatment, which increased demand for the influenza diagnostic and treatment market. Several pharmaceutical behemoths created a single diagnostic test for both viruses to streamline the detection procedure in response to the increased demand for efficient diagnostic testing for the virus. These elements fueled the market expansion.
