Infectious Diseases Market Overview

Market Research Future (MRFR) projects the infection control market to expand at an approximate rate of 3.70% between 2020 and 2030.

Infectious diseases are surging in number worldwide, caused by pathogenic microorganisms, like viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites. The diseases are directly or indirectly spread from one individual to another, or can be caused from non-sterilized or infected medical or surgical devices that are used during treatment. These diseases can also be caused in infected environments of a healthcare facility. Therefore, to prevent the chances of these infections, infection control is the top preventable measure.

Surging cases of hospital-acquired infections, heightened number of surgeries, and chronic ailments’ rising prevalence among the burgeoning geriatric populace favor the infection control industry. The thriving medical device reprocessing sector adds value to the infection control market as well. With that said, soaring concerns with regard to the safety level of the reprocessed instruments could deter the expansion of the infection control industry in the given period.

Rise in procedures that use high intensity infection control and prevention, escalating number of government awareness campaigns and the rise in obesity, diabetes, heart, respiratory disorders and cancer will offer great opportunities to the top manufacturers.
