Global Diagnostic Testing of STDs Market - Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries, such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others, faced problems regarding the transportation of drugs from one place to another.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global diagnostic testing of STDs market due to the reduced demand for testing kits of STDs during COVID-19. For instance, according to data share by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on April 11, 2023, the numbers of reported STDs rapidly fell below 2019 during March and April 2020 due to reduced testing in this period. Although the number of chlamydia cases increased by 4% from 2020 to 2021, the number of chlamydial infections diagnosed and reported in 2021 was still 9% lower than the number reported in 2019 (1,644,416 cases in 2021 vs 1,808,703 in 2019). This decrease is likely due to changes in STD screening, not a reduction in new infections.

For instance, according to a study published by Journal of the International AIDS society on November 16, 2022, a total of 96 cases were considered.  Frequency of next HIV/STI testing among those already diagnosed with an STI was 35.3% and who had symptoms with STIs was 27.1%. A few potential reasons for these observations include differences in national STI-related policies, lack of standard operation procedures, clinician-level factors, poor awareness and adherence to HIV indicator condition-guided HIV testing, and stigma associated with HIV compared to other curable STIs.

To counterbalance this restraint, an awareness programs should be conducted to eliminate stigma from society.

Reduction in funding for the treatment of STDs

Reduction in funding to fight against STDs can restrain market growth in forecast period. For instance, on June 13, 2023, The Center for Disease Control, U.S. based government organization reduced funding for workers who fight sexually transmitted infections in the U.S. states. The reduction in funding was by US$ 400 million. The spending cuts are according to recently passed debt ceiling deal.

To counterbalance this restraint, more government funding for research activities should be allocated.
