HPV Testing and Pap Test Market : Increasing Number of Cervical Cancer Cases and Growing Aging Population


(USGovernment-News.Com, September 15, 2020 ) Cervical cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women, preceded by breast cancer. HPV, a sexually transmitted virus, has been clinically proven to be the primary cause of cervical cancer. HPV contributes to around 90% of all anal and cervical cancers and 70% of vaginal and vulvar cancers. Pap tests are the most preferred tests to detect cervical cancer. These
include microscopic observation of specimens.

The global HPV testing and Pap test market is projected to reach USD 4.52 billion by 2020 from USD 3.29 billion in 2015, at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2015 to 2020.

However, these tests are unable to detect all the genotypes causing HPV infections and might also lead to a significant number of false negative results. Owing to these challenges posed by Pap tests, HPV diagnostic tests were introduced as effective molecular diagnostic tests.
