According to Business Market Insights’ research, The Middle East & AfricaTransport Media Product market was valued at US$ 250.46 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 324.42 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 4.4% from 2022 to 2028. Rise in demand due to COVID-19 pandemic are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.
The first confirmed case of the COVID-19 pandemic was declared on the 31st of December 2020. The World Health Organization declared the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern on 30th January 2020 and a pandemic on 11th March 2020. Since then, the pandemic has seen multiple waves and several regional and country-level waves.
For tests to be accurate and reliable, the quality of the specimen and the conditions under which the specimen is transported and stored before being processed are crucial. For this, the use of viral transport medium became common and saw an exponential rise in demand. The most commonly used viral transport media were the screw cap plastic tube containing buffered proteins and antibiotics to prevent the growth of contaminants, such as bacteria and fungi. Many companies started mass production of viral transport medium for nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal swab specimens for transport to diagnostic laboratories for confirmation. Also, many universities and research organizations supported the production process through the reduction in research projects to prevent workplace outbreaks and shifted their operations to custom production of viral transport medium to produce COVID-19 test kits, such as at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where the organization in collaboration with its related laboratories and students produced 254,791 viral transport media testing tubes for prompt distribution throughout the state of Ohio.
With further waves of the pandemic expected to occur on regional levels, robust and large-scale testing is necessary to prevent impacts and loss of life. This is expected to drive the market for transport media, especially viral transport media, in the coming years. Furthermore, apart from the COVID-19 virus, various other infectious disease outbreaks are becoming common, which require rapid testing and research work that is also expected to aid the market’s growth.
