Infection Control Market is poised to register a CAGR of over 3.2% during the forecast period of 2022-2028.

The rise in geriatric population along with the widening prevalence of chronic diseases due to lifestyle changes, sedentary habits, unhealthy dietary routines will drive future market growth. The population is thus more prone to acquiring infections due to the presence of a combination of increased comorbid condition and decreasing efficiency of the immune system.

The increasing frequency of surgical procedures coupled with the growing incidence of nosocomial infections will boost infection control market growth during the forecast period. Considering the statistics by WHO, 10 out of every 100 individuals hospitalized globally in developing countries and 7 in developed countries are likely to acquire nosocomial infections. The statistics accurately reflect the swelling need for the market’s products and services.

The market is classified into products & services, end-users, and region. In the products and services segment, the market is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate throughout the forecast period. This accelerated increase is attributed to the high affinity of market players to diminish overall healthcare expenditure along maximizing patient benefits.

In context to end-users, hospitals and clinics held a principal share and are predicted to achieve growth at the highest CAGR throughout the forecast period. The substantial share is majorly a consequence of high probability of acquiring infections in hospital premises through respiratory or bloodborne pathogen transmission.

Based on the region, the Asia Pacific market is presumed to register the fastest growth during the projected time period with the surge in healthcare expenditure and superlative healthcare standards and infrastructure. Boost in the number of outsourcing organizations in the region will benefit the market in the forthcoming years. A voluntary organization, Asia Pacific Society of Infection Control (APSIC) entertains collaborations and partnerships as well as infection control research to promote cost-efficient practices throughout the region. The regional market also gains momentum on the back of various government organizations committed to elevating the standards for infection control.

Impact of COVID-19 on Infection Control Market:

According to WHO, the transmission of the COVID-19 is through respiratory droplets, i.e. droplets that are larger than 5 micrometers of diameter, and through contact route. With countries like India going under complete lockdown, the transmission of infection shall be curbed down significantly. Furthermore, hospitals are providing optimum healthcare services like creation of isolation wards for the infected patients, using PPE kits to treat the infected patients whilst avoiding getting infected. They also use EPA-certified surface disinfectants to clean the hospital premises.
