Dublin-based market analysis firm Research and Markets has announced the release of a major new 70 page report: “Global HPV Testing Market 2015-2019,” projecting that the global Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) testing market will grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.17% over the period 2014-2019.
The HPV category refers to a group of more than 200 related viruses commonly causing infections that do not manifest obvious symptoms, and among which are more than 40 HPV variants that nevertheless cause highly contagious diseases that are primarily transmitted through direct sexual contact, and that infect both male and female genitals. Other types of HPV cause non-genital warts that are not sexually transmitted. While most HPV infections are harmless and heal on their own, the high-risk types of genital HPV can be persistent and cause cervical, penile, anal, vaginal, and oropharyngeal cancers. Consequently, many sexually active individuals who have multiple partners undergo regular HPV tests as a preventive measure. HPV tests help detect the viral genetic material in a cell sample taken from the cervix.
To calculate the market size, the author of Global HPV Testing Market 2015-2019 uses revenue generated from sales of HPV testing kits and detection systems in markets segmented among three regions of the globe: the Americas, APAC, and EMEA.
HPV and Pap tests also help detect cervical cancer in women. The Pap test identifies changes in cervical cells caused by HPV infection, while the HPV test proper is used to check for HPV DNA in sample cells, so a physician may advise a patient to undergo both HPV and Pap tests in order to screening for cervical cancer. The report notes that the American Cancer Society, the US Preventive Services Task Force, the American Society for Clinical Pathology, and the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology have all provided guidelines for the testing of cervical cancer in women in the US, recommending that women aged between 30 and 65 should undergo Pap and HPV co-testing every five years, or get a Pap test every three years.
According to the report, HPV is now the most widespread STD in both men and women, and an HPV infection can lead to cervical, vulvar, or vaginal cancer in women, and to penile cancer in men. An estimated 20-million people are currently affected with HPV In the US, with more than six-million individuals becoming newly infected each year. The author cites research revealing that HPV is commonly transmitted through unprotected sexual contact, with factors such as contact with infected skin, genital fluids, or lesions responsible for development of HPV infections. And while lower-risk HPV infection does not lead to cancer, it still can cause condylomata acuminata on or around the genitals, anus, mouth, or throat, with HPV types 6 and 11 for example accounting for 90 percent of genital warts cases. However, the high-risk infections, especially HPV types 16 and 18, are responsible for most HPV-related cancers.
Further, the report states that a lack of awareness of HPV and its diagnostic kits among people has a negative impact on growth of the testing market.
