Global Hospital-Acquired Infection Control Market To Grow At A CAGR of 9.89% During The Forecast Period

04-Jul-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global hospital-acquired infection control market was valued at USD 28.99 billion in 2021. The global market is projected to grow to about USD 34.03 billion at a CAGR of 9.89% by 2028.

Patients are more susceptible to diseases when they are hospitalized because their immunity is low and medical premises are hotspots for microorganisms. HAIs can infect elder patients & young children and the most vulnerable are patients with low immunity. Some of the major factors that cause hospital-acquired infections are the use of elemental catheters, long & frequent hospital visits, improper sanitation procedures by healthcare professionals, and undue use of antibiotics.

HAI is a reason for a higher death rate than other causes like AIDS, breast cancer, or accidents. Hence it becomes imperative to curb the spread of HAIs thus propelling the global hospital-acquired infection control market growth in the coming years.

Due to the onset of Covid-19, the global market witnessed an upward trend in 2020 and 2021 owing to an increased infection rate amongst the general population. Even though hospital visits were restricted to Covid-19 patients only, the need for sterilizing medical tools was higher and strict measures were laid down by hospital management to adhere to high hygiene standards.

The global hospital-acquired infection control market is propelled by the rising number of chronic diseases and the elderly population worldwide which eventually leads to frequent hospital visits thus pushing the need to control hospital-acquired infections. During Covid-19, government and private healthcare regulatory bodies, across the globe, drafted strict protocols to upgrade the hygiene and sanitation section of medical facilities. Guidelines issued by WHO for the prevention and curbing of respiratory diseases induced by a pandemic or endemic are a live example of steps taken for controlling these infections. The guidelines are related to SOP for use of personal protective gear, protocols for sterilization & disinfection, or hand hygiene. One of the most effective ways to prevent hospital-acquired infections is the complete sterilization of medical tools since it prevents pathogen transmission from one patient to another. The utilization of reusable equipment requires that hospital facilities have technologically advanced sterilization processes or tools in action to prevent HAIs. The rising demand for sterilizing medical devices coupled with other reasons mentioned is expected to aid the global market growth.

The safety concerns related to reusable medical equipment may restrain the global market growth. The growth in the utilization of single-use equipment and the introduction of ethylene oxide as a sterilizer are expected to provide growth opportunities for global market expansion. The complexities related to the disinfection of advanced medical equipment may pose challenges in the global market.
