The global market for Peptic Ulcer Testing is projected to reach US$525 million by 2022, driven by the higher prevalence rates in third world countries and the growing need for faster and accurate diagnosis of H. Pylori infection. While the number of H. pylori infected population is huge, actual number of people becoming symptomatic is negligible, which enhances the significance of accurate diagnosis of H. pylori. The choice of diagnostic method for detecting H. pylori infection depends on factors such as the cost, accessibility, patient’s age, availability of diagnostic tests, advantages and drawbacks of various tests, and need for performing endoscopy. Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide supported by the high incidence of H. pylori infection in developing nations as a result of poor sanitary conditions and unsafe drinking water, which exposes a significant proportion of the population to the infection. Other factors driving growth in the region include growing healthcare spending as a result of rising disposable income, improving access to affordable healthcare as a result of government efforts to provide equitable healthcare services, and growing awareness over the importance of timely diagnosing and treating stomach ulcers. The prevalence of H. pylori infection remains low and continues to decline at a steady rate in most developed countries.
