Infection Control Market Growth Drivers, and Dynamics

High incidence of HAIs, an increasing number of surgical procedures, a growing geriatric population, increasing cases of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, heart and respiratory disorders, and a growing need for food sterilization and disinfection are some of the major factors driving the growth of the market in the forecasted period.

The increasing prevalence of Hospital-acquired Infections is expected to drive market growth.

According to World Health Organization Report 2022, Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are diseases acquired in a hospital or other healthcare institution and manifest 48 hours or more after admission or within 30 days of discharge. Pathogens that cause hospital-acquired infection include viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Bloodstream infections (BSI), pneumonia, urinary tract infections (UTI), and surgical site infections are the most prevalent illnesses (SSI). These infections endanger the patient's health and life and lengthen hospital stays, adding to the financial burden. These infections account for around 7% and 10% of all reported infections in developed and developing nations. In acute-care hospitals, 7  patients in high-income countries and 15 in low- and middle-income countries will contract at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI) during their stay. One in every ten affected patients would die due to their HAI.

Additionally, HAI’s and antimicrobial resistance greatly impact people's lives. Every year, more than 24% of patients with health-care-associated sepsis and 52.3% of those treated in an intensive care unit die. As a result, the WHO launched IPC programs to assure the quality of treatment and the safety of patients and health staff. This will not only protect their communities, but it has also been shown that increasing investment in IPC improves health outcomes and lowers healthcare costs and out-of-pocket expenses. Thus, from the above factors, the market is expected to drive in the forecast period.

Difficulties in infection surveillance are expected to hamper the market growth.

Many hospitals still utilize manual infection surveillance approaches, such as infection preventionists checking paper culture reports for probable HAIs or patient isolation treatments. These reports are frequently delayed, reducing the ability to intervene effectively in HAI cases. Manual surveillance takes a long time and has lagged in providing data that can lead to the deployment of effective prevention strategies to lower the prevalence of drug-resistant illnesses. It is quite difficult for infection preventionists to make highly detailed judgments. The consequence of disregarding a device-associated infection is less than that of overreporting an infectious occurrence. Moreover, individuals at local facilities are doubtful to examine incidents not classified as HAI, whereas those identified as infections may also be scrutinized, taking additional time. Thus, from the above factors, the market is expected to be hampered in the forecast period.

Infection Control Industry COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 epidemic positively impacted the infection control industry. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there is extraordinary global demand for modern healthcare facilities, services, and infrastructure to treat sick people. Infection control goods, such as personal protective equipment, are in high demand from most countries worldwide to deal with the rise of COVID-19 patients. Healthcare workers use personal protective equipment to keep themselves and their patients from being ill and infecting others. However, with the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic problem, the available capacity for face masks and gowns is insufficient, and the worldwide healthcare business is experiencing a shortage of personnel. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), 89 million medical masks will be required monthly. A 40% increase in manufacturing is expected to accommodate that demand. The WHO also believes that frontline workers will require 7-10% of the world's supply of surgical masks, if not more. This figure rises to 76 million for examination gloves, while international demand for goggles is at 1.6 million monthly.

Furthermore, as the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, hospital admissions are projected to rise. SSIS is determined to be the highest contributor to the overall annual cost spent on these illnesses by healthcare facilities in the United States. In the United States, the most frequent forms of HAIs cost roughly $9.8 billion annually, with Ssis accounting for 33.7% ($3.3 billion). Thus, from the above factors, the market is affected positively in the forecast period.

Infection Control Market Segment Analysis

Sterilization Products segment is expected to hold the largest market share in infection control

The sterilization products accounted for the largest market share in 2021. Due to the growing necessity to eliminate all types of microbiological life, such as viruses, fungi, spores, and bacteria, Sterile products eliminate pathogenic germs and neutralize other hazardous organisms. For instance, radiation sterilization effectively inactivates bacteria, can be utilized for packing and protects the safety of healthcare items. Radiation sterilization and sterilizing disposable medical instruments such as surgical gloves and syringes is a cost-effective and secure form of sterilization. Moreover, the advantage of that it can sterilize pre-packaged products. Furthermore, sanitized equipment keeps delicate pivots and hinges on pricey, high-precision tools from rusting. It also decreases the breeding habitat for surviving bacteria and ensures the safety of surgical treatments. Thus, from the above factor, the market segment is accounted for the largest market share in the forecast period.

Infection Control Market Geographical Analysis

North America region holds the largest market share in the global infection control  

North America region accounted for the largest market share in 2021. Rising in the geriatric population, increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases and HAIs, product launches, and collaboration by the market players are the factors to drive the market in the forecast period. For instance, Metrex Research, LLC. established a strategic agreement with the Association for Specialists in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), the largest association for Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) professionals, on March 24, 2021. This partner program fosters long-term connections with industry partners who share the goal of lowering infection risk. This collaboration will help lower the spread of illness and improve IP education and resources. Moreover, Ecolab acquired Holchem Group in 2020 to expand its hygiene and cleaning product and service range for the food and beverage, food service, and hotel industries. Thus, from the above factors, the North American region accounted for the largest market share in the forecast period.
