Demand Analysis of Hospital Acquired Infection Testing from 2016 to 2020 Compared to Market Outlook for 2021-2031

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the America’s hospital acquired infection testing market is valued at US$ 594.8 Mn in 2020, and has been expanding at a CAGR of 12.8% over the past five years.

Rise in incidence of hospital associated infections, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, and government initiatives to control and create awareness regarding hospital acquired infections are expected to have a positive impact on market growth.

Also, increase in cases of surgical site infections will further augment growth of the hospital acquired testing industry.  Rise in risk due to admission of COVID-19 patients has further created widespread demand for hospital acquired infection testing kits. Growth of the market is being further augmented by the introduction of new products.

Fact.MR expects the Americas hospital acquired infection testing market to surge at 15% CAGR through 2031.

How are Rising Cases of Surgical Site Infections Impacting Market Growth?

Rise in surgical procedures are elevating the risk of contracting surgical site infections. Surgical site infections (SSIs) are the most commonly reported healthcare-acquired infections and surgical complication in both, developed and developing countries.

SSI can result in increased morbidity and mortality, prolonged hospital stay, increased hospital readmissions, and even reoperation and elevated costs.

According to a study, in the United States, SSI is found to be a serious complication with an incidence of 2%-5% in patients undergoing surgery, complicating approximately 300,000 to 500,000 surgeries per year and costing the healthcare system upward of US$ 1.6 Bn.  

SSI leads to serious consequences, including increased costs due to its treatment and longer length of hospital stay, adding to the financial burden on patients.

Thus, growing incidence of surgical site infections will create demand for better diagnostics and treatment options, as such highlighting the importance of hospital acquired infection testing in the Americas.

What are the Key Opportunities for Hospital Acquired Infection Testing Kit Manufacturers?

Medical tourism in Latin American countries provides and array of opportunities for the growth of hospital acquired infection testing industry. Leading destinations industry include Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and the Domination Republic, as these countries offer a range of healthcare services at affordable prices as compared to developed economies.

Increasing medical tourism is expected to aid the growth of emergency medicine services, including the use of ambulances, ambulatory surgical centers, and hospitals, which, in turn, will create demand for hospital acquired infection testing kits.

What is Restraining Demand for Hospital Acquired Infection Testing in the Americas?

There are various barriers that service providers have to face while introducing new tests or kits in the market. One amongst these is stringent government regulations. Diagnostic kits that are developed by independent medical device manufacturers and sold to medical laboratories are subjected to strict regulatory guidelines and a lengthy FDA approval process.

Moreover, tightening of regulatory grip of the FDA on certain home-grown diagnostic kits further threatens to put a stranglehold on the development and implementation of innovative diagnostics by clinical laboratories in the U.S.

Thus, stringent regulatory guidelines are expected to restrain the growth of the HAIs testing market over the coming years.

What is the Future Outlook for Immunoassay Testing?

Immunoassay testing will continue to grow at a significant rate at a CAGR of 16.7% during the study period. Ability of diagnostic laboratories to manage high sample volume is a key factor fueling the growth of this segment.

Further, diagnostic labs are well-equipped with advanced technological instruments that provide more accurate results. This is another factor that has had a positive impact on market growth.

What is Scope of Growth for Home Care Testing for Hospital Acquired Infections?

Despite diagnostic laboratories currently dominating the market with 35.8% value share, home care testing for hospital acquired infection control is expected to witness significant growth at 23% CAGR.

Demand for point-of-care testing owing to its rapid, accurate results with quick turnaround time is one of the key factors driving demand for home care testing of HAIs.

Apart from these, increasing ageing population demanding healthcare services, specimen stability and ease of handling, improved patient outcomes, reduction of unnecessary hospital visits, and improved patient outcome are some other factors contributing to higher growth of this end-user segment.

What Is the Impact of COVID-19 on Hospital Acquired Infection Testing in the Americas?

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a moderately positive impact on the overall growth of the Americas HAIs testing market. Advancements in technologies have led to preference of point-of-care testing over conventional methods. This supported healthy growth in demand for point-of-care testing kits amid the pandemic.
