The Rheumatoid Arthritis Diagnostic Tests Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,775.1 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Rheumatoid arthritis diagnostic tests help in the detection and diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in patients. These tests include tests such as anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP), anti-nuclear antibody (ANA), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP), and rheumatoid factor (RF) tests. These tests play a vital role in confirming the presence of rheumatoid arthritis and helping physicians in developing an appropriate treatment plan for patients.
Market key trends:-
The rheumatoid arthritis diagnostic tests market is witnessing high growth owing to the increasing adoption of advanced disease diagnosis techniques by physicians and healthcare providers. For instance, anti-CCP test has emerged as an important diagnostic marker with a specificity of around 98% for rheumatoid arthritis. This is encouraging more healthcare facilities to adopt anti-CCP tests for early and accurate diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Moreover, ongoing research and development activities focused on developing novel disease diagnosis biomarkers is further supporting the growth of this market. Various industry players are engaged in developing diagnostic tests with high sensitivity and specificity to aid early-stage diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.
