Global Preeclampsia Diagnostics 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 has declared it a public health emergency. According to the World Health Organization’s report, the manifestation of coronavirus (COVID-19) has resulted in more than 212 million infected individuals worldwide as of August 24 2021.
COVID-19 can affect the economy in three main ways; by directly affecting production and demand, 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, UAE, Egypt, and others are facing problems with regards to transportation of drugs from one place to another.
Furthermore, players operating in the global preeclampsia diagnostics market are facing major challenges on various fronts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The major challenges include supply of raw materials required for manufacturing drug formulations due to irregularities in transportation. Moreover, distributors are experiencing irregular demand for products from the retailers due to an increase in the number of patients suffering from COVID-19 and other life threatening disorders.
Global Preeclampsia Diagnostics Market: Restraint
The major factors that hinder the growth of the global preeclampsia diagnostics market include lack of awareness about the preeclampsia disease. According to a survey conducted by Progenity, Inc. in May 2021, for cause of maternal death reveals pregnant women lack awareness about preeclampsia. Nearly 30% of pregnant women in the United States experience signs and symptoms of possible preeclampsia. Approximately 5-8% of all pregnancies are complicated by preeclampsia.
Major players operating in the global preeclampsia diagnostics market are Diabetomics, Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, PerkinElmer Inc., Siemens Healthineers AG, DRG INSTRUMENTS GMBH, Metabolomic Diagnostics Ltd., Sera Prognostics, MOMM Diagnostics, Miraculins Inc.
Preeclampsia is formerly known as toxemia. Preeclampsia occurs when women have high blood pressure and possibly protein in urine during pregnancy or after delivery. Preeclampsia may result in damage to the kidneys, liver, lung, heart, or eyes, and may cause a stroke or other brain injury. Preeclampsia can lead to eclampsia, a serious condition that can have health risks for both mother and baby and in rare cases can even cause death. If preeclampsia leads to seizures, then women have eclampsia. Symptoms of preeclampsia include persistent headache, abnormal swelling in hands and face, sudden weight gain, changes in vision, and pain in the right upper abdomen. The only cure for preeclampsia is to give birth. Even after delivery, symptoms of preeclampsia can last 6 weeks or more.
Key players in the market are focusing on growth strategies such as agreements, collaborations, and product launches, which are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in February 2016, Diabetomics, Inc., a privately-held global medical diagnostics company, announced that the company had entered into a licensing and distribution agreement for a clinical test with BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company to conduct a newly developed pregnancy specific metabolic assay for the early detection of preeclampsia and gestational diabetes. In March 2015, Siemens Healthineers AG launched two new advanced urine testing solutions for the U.S. central laboratories, namely, the CLINITEK Novus Automated Urine Chemistry Analyzer and the CLINITEK AUWi PRO Automated Urine Workstation.
