U.S. Allergy Diagnostics And Therapeutics Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Increasing incidence of allergies is one of the key factors contributing to allergy therapeutics market growth. Rising exposure to outdoor and indoor air pollutants and occupational exposure are among high-risk factors causing chronic respiratory diseases. Prevalence of allergies is much higher in the urban population compared to rural due to rising exposure to environmental pollutants due to industrial activities and urbanization.

According to statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in January 2023, around 1 in 4 children and 1 in 3 adults have a seasonal allergy in the U.S. Nearly 6% of children and adults in the U.S. suffer from a food allergy with the rate being highest among black, Asian, and Hispanic individuals. Similarly, as per data from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, in 2021, in the U.S., about 81 million people were diagnosed with seasonal allergic rhinitis, representing around 26% affected adults and 19% affected children.

Increasing demand for IVD testing is expected to boost the allergy diagnostics and therapeutics market over the forecast period. In vitro blood tests are used to determine various types of allergies such as food, inhaled, skin, and drug allergies. These tests have various benefits, such as the fact that they are minimally invasive and are cost-effective & user-friendly, which is anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities in this market. In addition, the development of low-cost and effective in vitro diagnostic tests for allergy determination, rising lab automation, and an increase in reagent rental agreements are some of the factors expected to contribute to market growth in the coming years.

Market Dynamics

Increase in funding is driving advancements in research, development, and accessibility of innovative therapies, addressing the growing demand for more effective treatments & management strategies. This heightened financial support is propelling the growth of the peanut allergy treatment market, fostering the development of safer and more accessible solutions for those affected by this condition. For instance, in December 2022, Aravax, a clinical-stage biotechnology company, initiated its series B funding round with a substantial USD 20 million investment from prominent Australian life science investors, Brandon Capital and Tenmile.

This funding will empower Aravax to begin Phase 2 trials of PVX108 and seek additional capital to expedite its development efforts. Having received approval for its Investigational New Drug (IND) application from the U.S. FDA and a clinical trial notification from Australia's TGA, Aravax is set to progress its Phase 2 clinical trial program across the U.S. and Australia.

However, key drugs in the space such as Nestlé's Palforzia faced significant challenges. Despite a substantial investment of USD 2.6 billion in its development, the treatment regimen proved to be too cumbersome for many potential patients. Even after 3 years, many physicians have not prescribed Palforzia. Across the U.S.,  doctors & patients are opting for the traditional approach of avoiding peanuts and carrying adrenaline injections for emergencies instead.

Similarly, according to a recent survey published by the European Medicine Agency in September 2023, the adoption of Palforzia in European region is lower than the expected post drug launch. As a significant development in the market, Nestlé divested its Palforzia business in September 2023 to Stallergenes Greer, a biopharmaceutical company specializing in allergy diagnosis and treatment. This strategic move followed Nestlé's earlier announcement of a review of Palforzia, with Nestlé set to receive milestone payments and ongoing royalties from Stallergenes Greer as part of the agreement.

Type Insights

On the basis of type, the market is segmented into therapeutics and diagnostics. The therapeutics segment held the largest revenue share of over 81.67% in 2023 due to its focus on treating allergic conditions. Therapeutics aim to alleviate symptoms and provide relief from allergies, addressing the core concern of patients. Epinephrine dominated the overall market owing to its rapid and potent response as well as its swift action during severe allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis. As a natural hormone, it mimics body's fight-or-flight response, swiftly alleviating symptoms such as respiratory distress and low blood pressure. Its ubiquity, cost-effectiveness, and decades-long established use contribute to its dominance, making it a crucial and trusted tool in emergency allergy management.

Diagnostic segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period due to increasing demand for precise and early identification of allergic conditions. Diagnostics are pivotal in evaluating allergen sensitivities, enabling targeted therapeutic interventions.

The consumables segment held the largest revenue share in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR due to its indispensable applications in diagnostic tests. Associated benefits such as availability of kits specific to each allergen and ease of access are expected to fuel this segment’s growth during the forecast period. For instance, Allergen microarray kits, which have become more sensitive and provide individualized patient assessment & monitoring, are expected to propel the industry even further.

Allergen Type Insights

Based on allergy type, the inhaled segment held the largest revenue share of over 49.68% in 2023 owing to the growing incidence of respiratory allergies caused by industrialization and increasing air pollution. According to estimates published by the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America, seasonal allergic rhinitis was expected to affect approximately 81 million people in the U.S. by 2021. This corresponded to approximately 26% (67 million) of adults & 19% (14 million) of minors, and this number is expected to grow over the forecast period. Hence, increasing incidence of allergic rhinitis is expected to present future growth opportunities for market growth.

Drug allergies are expected to experience a faster CAGR over the coming years. Drug allergies may lead to toxic epidermal necrolysis and Steven-Johnson syndrome in children. Chemotherapy drugs, sulfonamide drugs, and antiepileptic drugs are the most common agents of drug allergies.
