Infection Control Market Estimated to Value Over US$ 26 Billion by 2026 End

  • 21 Aug 2019

Infection Control Market to value over US $ 26 billion and register a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period of 2019-2026.

The increase in official initiatives undertaken by the government to advocate infection prevention is perceived to be the chief factor driving the market. The World Health Organization (WHO) considers Acute Respiratory Diseases (ARDs) as a serious ailment leading to a lot of casualties over the years. The mortality rate is very high and approximately 4 million deaths are caused by ARDs annually. These statistics exemplify the rising need for strict prevention as well as control. Prolonged hospital stay is uneconomical and unfeasible for hospitals as well as patients highlighting the excessive use of resources for treating acquired infections. This additional expenditure is mostly produced with the raised exposure to drugs, laboratory apparatus along with supplementary diagnostic research, which leads to an imbalance in resource allocation. This circumstance has accelerated the demand for infection control market across the globe and is expected to increase further in the following years.

The market is classified into product and service type and end-user. Based on product and service type, the cleaning and disinfection products segment is further characterized into disinfectants, cleaning and disinfection equipment, lubricants, cleaning solutions, disinfection and cleaning accessories. The disinfectant segment is anticipated to advance at a tremendous CAGR during the forecast period. The extraordinary thriving of this division is largely due to the increasingly widespread applications across several industries and the burgeoning need for these commodities in various end-user divisions. The requirement for disinfectants is also mounting in the food industry, owing to the raised risks associated with foodborne pathogens and bacterial and viral food-related infections.

On the basis of type, sterilization products and services are categorized into sterilization equipment which is further sub-categorized into heat sterilization, low-temperature sterilization, filtration sterilization, radiation sterilization, and other sterilization equipment.

This heat sterilization segment is anticipated to oversee and dominate the sterilization equipment market during the forecast period mainly due to its extensive applicability, efficiency, ease of installation, repetitive application, and cost-effectiveness. Moist heat sterilization is among the oldest sterilization techniques employed in the medical and food industries. It is used to sterilize equipment used in microbiology, medicine, veterinary science, mycology, dentistry, and prosthetic fabrication, as well as the food processing industry.

In terms of region, Asia-Pacific is the global leader of the market. Asia-Pacific holds high growth potential in the infection control market. This is mainly attributed to the fact that the growing economies in China and India are emerging markets for the global infection control market due to the rising incidence of nosocomial infections, growth in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries and improved healthcare infrastructures. In extension, the region’s growing medical tourism, especially for cardiovascular, orthopaedic, oncology, and fertility treatments are expected to increase the need for proper infection control in healthcare setups. The Asian market is expected to witness a steady year-on-year growth owing to increasing regional awareness about infection control.
