Lyme Disease Diagnostics Market - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026


According to the American Lyme Disease Foundation, Lyme disease occurs due to the bite of deer tick which through its bite transmits the infection of Borrelia burgdoferi a type of spirochete bacterium. The bacterium travels through the bloodstream and settles in various body tissues. The clinical manifestations of lyme disease are circular skin rash (erythema migrans) at the site of bite, fever, headaches, muscle & joint pain and lethargy. As per the latest research findings of the Bay Area Lyme Foundation, in the United States, every year approximately 329,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported. It is rampantly growing in Northern Midwest and California in the United States and Western Europe. Lyme disease is caused due to four bacterial species such as Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia afzelii, Borrelia mayonii, and Borrelia garinii. The key drivers responsible for the growth of Lyme disease diagnostics are rampant spread of Lyme disease and rising public health awareness resulting in early diagnosis and treatment.

According to the research findings of the World Health Organization (WHO), Lyme disease usually occurs in summer. They are prevalent in the forested areas of U.S., Asia and Europe. The disease is fatal as it affects the central nervous system and arthritis usually develops within 2 years of infection. Currently, there is no prophylaxis available for Lyme disease; avoiding deer tick infested area and exposure is the best precaution. The diagnosis of Lyme disease is very sensitive and critical, approximately 55% of the current diagnostic testing solutions is inaccurate and more than 20% of the patients receiving treatment in the early stages of Lyme disease continue to have symptoms. Doxycycline, cefuroxime axetil and amoxicillin are currently prescribed for the treatment of Lyme disease. In July 2017, the USFDA gave fast track designation to VLA15 a Lyme disease vaccine candidate developed by Valneva SE.
