Blood Culture Tests Market by Method (Automated, Manual), Product (Consumables, Instrument), Technology (PCR, Microarray, Proteomic), Application (Bacteremia, Fungemia) & End User (Hospital Laboratories, Reference Laboratories) - Global Forecast to 2021
The global blood culture tests market is projected to reach USD 4,768.9 million by 2021 from USD 3,252.6 million in 2016, at a CAGR of 8.0%. Major factors contributing to the growth of this market include growing number of sepsis cases and high cost of treatment, increase in prevalence of infectious diseases, rapidly rising aging population, increase in product approvals and launches, increase in demand for rapid diagnostic techniques, and high incidence of bloodstream infections. However, factors such as high cost of automated instruments and lack of technically skilled professionals are restraining the growth of this market.
North America commanded the largest share of the global blood culture tests market in 2015. Factors such as increase in number of sepsis cases, rising geriatric population, growing demand for rapid diagnostic techniques, significant presence of blood culture tests providers and growing product approvals and launches in this region are propelling the growth of the blood culture tests market in North America. In addition, the growth of the blood culture tests market in North America is driven by technological advancements and increase in demand for rapid diagnostic techniques. Various market players are focusing on new product launches to expand their product portfolios and cater to their wide customer base. For instance, in September 2014, the company introduced a new technology, Polymerase Chain Reaction coupled with Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectroscopy (PCR/ESI-MS), at the 54th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy in the U.S. This technology is based on a study conducted by the Rapid Diagnostics of Infection on the Critically Ill (RADICAL). The study suggests that Abbott’s PCR/ESI-MS can detect bacteria, viruses, or fungi in a short span of time when the blood culture tests are negative. Such technological advancements will significantly contribute towards the adoption of rapid diagnostic techniques among hospital laboratories and reference laboratories, which are major end users of these instruments.
