Overview of the Hospital Infection Therapeutics Market
The patients undergoing treatments in hospitals can develop infections in the course of their stay in the hospitals. These infections are called as hospital infections or hospital-acquired infections (HAI). These infections spread in healthcare environments such as outpatient surgery centers, rehabilitation centers, dialysis centers, hospitals, and nursing homes.
On the basis of the type of drug, the market for hospital infection therapeutics is segmented into antibacterial drugs, antifungal drugs, and antiviral drugs. The antibacterial drugs segment constituted the biggest share – 70.7% – in 2013 in the global market for hospital infection therapeutics. The antibacterial drugs segment is also anticipated to be the most swiftly developing segment in the market for global hospital infection in the forecast horizon from 2014 to 2020.
In terms of major types of infections, the market for hospital infection therapeutics is segmented into gastrointestinal disorders, bloodstream infections, hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP), surgical site infections, urinary tract infections, and other hospital infections. The largest share in the global hospital infection therapeutics market was held by the hospital-acquired pneumonia segment in 2013, which represented more than 20% of the overall market. However, the segment of urinary tract infections is projected to expand at a rapid rate in the coming future.
On the basis of geography, the global hospital infection therapeutics market has been segmented into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). On the basis of revenue, the market for hospital infection therapeutics was led by North America in 2013. After North America, the second biggest regional market was Europe. However, the hospital infection therapeutics market in Asia Pacific is predicted to witness the highest rate of growth throughout the forecast horizon.
The increase in the geriatric population, improved healthcare awareness, therapeutic drugs being highly in demand, and high occurrence of hospital infections are the key factors that stimulate the growth of the global hospital infection therapeutics market. Key factors that impede the growth of this market include rise in infection control, soaring number of multidrug-resistant bacterial strains, and hospital surveillance programs in emerging economies, which are leading to a reduced occurrence of hospital infections.
