Healthcare-associated Infectious Disease Diagnostics Market: Segmentation
This research report includes detailed market segmentation by products, tests, end-users, infection, and geography. The usage of a wide array of reagents and test kits to perform diagnostic tests for diagnosing several healthcare-associated infectious diseases is a major factor for the growth of the consumables segment. The consumables segment is growing due to the increasing usage of several microbial culture tests, urinalysis, immunoassay tests, and PCR tests in several healthcare settings for diagnosing infectious diseases.
The analyzer segment is growing at a relatively slower pace than the consumables segment as it is capital intensive and purchasing decisions for analyzers depend on financial resources and budget allocations. However, analyzers used in molecular diagnostic tests and at POC sites are growing at a relatively higher growth rate than clinical laboratory analyzers as end-users are preferring analyzers with high sensitivity and delivering highly accurate results with less turnaround time.
Urinary tract infections (UTI) account for 35−40% of all nosocomial infections and occupy the largest share in the overall HAIs category. The prevalence of hospital-acquired UTIs is continuously increasing globally. The market is likely to grow at a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period. The surgical site infections (SSI) segment is growing at a steady rate and is likely to grow at a similar pace during the forecast period. The surgical site infections (SSI) segment is growing at a steady rate and is likely to grow at a similar pace during the forecast period. The prevalence of hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) and related deaths is increasing at an alarming rate worldwide. Therefore, there is an increased emphasis on minimizing the occurrence of HAP in healthcare settings. The market is expected to witness fast growth in the coming years due to the development and commercialization of advanced nucleic acid detection tests and advancements in POC testing products for pneumonia.
The traditional diagnostics segment is growing at a moderate rate. A reliable and accurate diagnosis of HAIs is of utmost importance in healthcare settings. Traditional diagnostic tests are considered as the gold-standard and are widely used to diagnose HAIs. The healthcare-associated infectious disease diagnostics market is witnessing widespread uptake of POC diagnostic tests for the diagnosis of several infections in several healthcare settings such as acute and ambulatory healthcare settings. Therefore, there is a growing need for highly efficient and automated diagnostic tests for diagnosing HAIs, especially antibiotic-resistant microbes.
Hospitals are the major source for HAIs, and many hospitalized patients acquire several pathogenic and non-pathogenic infections during the stay. Most hospitals report central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated UTIs, and SSIs following surgeries such as heart, abdominal hysterectomy, colon, and knee surgical procedures. The adoption of diagnostic testing for healthcare-associated infections is steadily increasing globally to tackle adverse events related to HAIs and take appropriate decisions on treatments. Therefore, the increase in the number of people with HAIs is encouraging physicians in hospitals to use advanced and rapid diagnostic tests, thereby contributing to the growth of the segment.
