Global Chikungunya Fever Market Overview:

Chikungunya (chik-un-GUN-yuh) is known as a viral illness transmitted by mosquitoes that cause the sudden onset of fever and severe joint pain. The signs and symptoms may include fatigue, muscle pain, headache, and rash. The outbreak of the Chikungunya was first reported in Africa, Asia, Europe, and islands in the Indian and Pacific oceans. The first reported case of chikungunya in the Americas occurred in 2013, on islands in the Caribbean. Since then, more than 1.7 million suspected cases of chikungunya have been reported in the Caribbean islands, Latin American countries, and the United States. Canada and Mexico also have reported cases of infection.


Chikungunya Diagnostics & Treatment  Market Forecast and Trends


Growth Drivers 


Expanding R&D expenses for the treatment of chikungunya is driving the market 

The rapidly increasing research on Chikungunya is acting as a major driver for the market. For instance, scientists have identified a molecule found on human cells and some animal cells that could be a useful target for drugs against chikungunya virus infection and related diseases, according to new research published in the journal Nature. Chikungunya, an alphavirus, is particularly transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. And currently growing research on specific treatment to cure the chikungunya virus and prevention of fever and debilitating joint pain and arthritis is driving the market. Small, sporadic outbreaks of chikungunya occurred in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans after the virus was identified in the 1950s. In 2013, the virus spread to the Americas and has since caused a widespread and ongoing epidemic. The scientists have particularly aimed to better understand which traits make humans susceptible to chikungunya virus infection. 


Rising awareness among the people about Chikungunya Diagnostics & Treatment  is acting as a driver for the market

Chikungunya is a viral disease spread by mosquitoes that causes fever and severe joint pains. It is spread to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito, and hence many health centers are putting their best efforts to make people aware of this fever. For instance, a chikungunya outbreak was identified in Dhaka in May 2017 and In July 2017 the Government of Bangladesh activated its Emergency Operations Center for the first time in response to the outbreak, prompting the dissemination of prevention messages to the community. Bangladesh’s Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) assigned 11 Advanced Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) fellows as key organizers of a one-day Chikungunya Awareness Campaign to perform Ministry of Health senior level duties. 




High cost of treatment and diagnosis for Chikungunya Diagnostics & Treatment

The researchers have estimated the “immediate” cost of chikungunya in India at US$ 1.48 billion (range US$ 0.64 billion to US$ 3.60 billion). These high cost associated with the Chikungunya Diagnostics & Treatment is hampering the market growth. The largest epidemic ever recorded for chikungunya, a disease caused by infection with the chikungunya virus (CHIKV), began in Africa in 2004 and spread to >100 countries on four continents. The epidemic caused >10 million cases of often debilitating rheumatic disease, classically involving the rapid onset of fever and polyarthralgia, often with polyarthritis. The clinical diagnosis of chikungunya is often complicated by infections with dengue or Zika virus. For many individuals with chikungunya, the disease is benign and self-limiting; however, some patients have a complex spectrum of atypical and severe manifestations. Many patients also experience a chronic phase of the disease, primarily involving arthralgia (which can be protracted (>1 year)), and several sequelae are also recognized. CHIKV-induced arthropathy arises from infection of multiple cell types in the joint and the infiltration of mainly mononuclear cells.


Impact of COVID-19 in industry


The global economy and humanity have been pushed into a crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the high infection rate and adverse impact on public health systems, various governments have enforced nationwide lockdowns significantly impacting manufacturing supply chains, trade, and related services. Players are currently considering digital solutions that would enable them to serve the community and provide new opportunities to do business. The production, manufacturing, supply chain, and other operations, have slowed down globally aimed to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The global impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is likely only beginning and would significantly affect the Chikungunya Diagnostics & Treatment market in 2020. Though, the COVID-19 pandemic has positively impacted the market demand from enterprises in 2020. 


Chikungunya Diagnostics & Treatment  Market: By End User 


Based on the end-user, the Chikungunya Diagnostics & Treatment market is segmented into hospitals and clinics, academic institutes, research laboratories, and others. The research laboratories segment is expected to account for a major share of the market during the forecast period, due to the increasing incidence of mosquito-transmitted diseases and high investments in research laboratories. Most commonly, the mosquitoes involved are Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Out of 98 countries that reported both diseases, 13 recorded co-infections. The researchers say that due to the similarity of symptoms between dengue and chikungunya, improved and inexpensive diagnostic tests are desperately needed.

Recent Development


·      Altona Diagnostics recently launched and distributed the CE-IVD marked real-time PCR test kits for Zika virus detection as well as Dengue and Chikungunya (RealStar Zika Virus RT-PCR Kit 1.0, RealStar Dengue RT-PCR Kit 2.0 und RealStar Chikungunya RT-PCR Kit 2.0).


·    For instance, new chikungunya VLP vaccine was developed by researchers that were previously tested in a small Phase 1 trial. These results suggested that the vaccine was safe, would likely produce a potentially protective immune response to the chikungunya virus. The chikungunya vaccine candidate being tested in this trial, known as CHIKV VLP, and contains virus-like particles (VLPs), which are manufactured in mammal cells.
