Rheumatoid Arthritis Testing - South America Analysis and Market Forecasts


The South America rheumatoid arthritis (RA) testing market is a dynamic market that is expected to grow through 2022. The rising prevalence of RA, increase in healthcare expenditure globally, rapidly rising demand for autoimmune disease diagnostics, coupled with advancement in technology and the introduction of new tests for example the second generation anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) immunoassays and the point of care (POC) lateral flow assays for RA diagnosis, are some of the major factors expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. In addition, the increasing adoption of automated systems as a more cost-effective alternative to manual testing will lead to an increase in the volume of RA tests performed in South America. Also the implementation of initiatives aimed at developing effective diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for RA will further push for the development of suitable biomarkers.

While RA testing is one of the most lucrative segments within autoimmune testing, the market growth of RA testing will be hampered by the high rate of false positive results and the pressure for healthcare providers to control cost. Moving forward, in light of increasing demand for RA testing, manufacturing companies are racing to develop the next-generation RA biomarkers that are have greater clinical accuracy. A diagnostic test or a multi-biomarker panel that is capable of ruling out RA would be the ultimate goal for manufacturers.

This report provides insight into the adoption trends, market dynamics, competitive landscape, marketed and pipeline products, current and emerging players, as well as market outlooks in Brazil. The report identifies the unmet needs in the market while providing an understanding of physicians’ perceptions in using and evaluating the adoption of different types of RA diagnostic tests.

2. Make skeleton catalogue.
3. Fill content. As for report content, there are two main information source, Primary and Secondary data collection. Secondary data collectionrefers to information searched from the Internet or data bought from database. Primary data collection refers to information concluded from telephone interview, face-to-face interview, expert’s interview, meeting etc.
4. Audit the report
5. Publish the report.

With regard to information cost, information searching costs the least, database support the second least, and telephone interview the third least. Face-face interview cost higher, in-depth interview much higher and expert interview the highest. A research may adopt all of these approaches, or just some of them.
In general, a good-quality research report needs 1-3 months to be finished. Time and method varies according to different Publishers. Thus, it’s difficult to define an exact procedure or process of making research report. Both time and cost vary. However, specialization has become a basic industry standard.
