Molecular Diagnostics for Transplant Market Trends



  • Increasing prevalence of infectious diseases market growth


There has been an increasing prevalence of infectious diseases owing to various factors such as climate change, rapid urbanization, microbial evolution, among others. Special care needs to be taken before transplantation as a transplant patient can get any type of infection caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. These include influenza virus infection, urinary tract infection, pneumococcal pneumonia, Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Human herpesvirus 6, among several others. Moreover, increasing antimicrobial resistance is also a cause of serious concern and has been adding to the increasing prevalence of infectious disease. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 2.8 million antimicrobial-resistant infections occur in the US each year. Thus, increasing prevalence of infectious disease has driven the demand for implementation of thorough molecular diagnostics in transplantation, thereby, driving the market.


Moreover, the number of patients suffering from various types of cancers such as lung, blood, breast, and liver is increasing worldwide. In 2020, according to GLOBOCAN 2020 estimates of cancer incidence and mortality produced by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an estimated number of 19.3 million new cancer cases and about 10 million cancer deaths occurred globally.


Hence, the growing number of cancer patients and rising incidences of infectious diseases are increasing the demand for organ transplantation.
