Growth in the urinary tract infection (UTI) testing market is being driven by factors such as the rising prevalence of UTIs, the proliferation of cutting-edge diagnostic tools, the aging of the global population, and the efforts of major industry players to develop and distribute at-home test kits. These are only a handful of the factors that are pushing the industry forward. The industry is also anticipated to benefit from the introduction of more effective combination medications and the rising elderly population.


UTIs affect women at a higher rate than men. The incidence rate rises as women get older. Due to changes in vaginal flora that promote the growth of some pathogens, the infection rate is higher in postmenopausal women. The availability of home sample collection kits and self-test kits for UTI testing, as well as the introduction of portable hand-held devices, are all likely to increase uptake.


People with diabetes are more likely to develop urinary tract infections because sugar in the urine provides a fertile environment for bacteria. The global urinary tract infection therapeutics market is being driven by the rising incidence of diabetes and kidney stones, both of which enhance the likelihood of developing a urinary tract infection (UTI).


Market expansion is being stymied, however, by such factors as medication-related side effects and a general lack of knowledge about the frequency of UTIs in less developed regions of the world.


August 2023:An inexpensive gadget for detecting the specific bacterium that causes urinary tract infections (UTIs) has been developed by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati using a 3D printer. According to the institute's announcement, it is a "fast, accurate, and reliable device" that can measure and identify the type of bacteria in a patient suspected of having a UTI.  The institute claimed it was economical and could be used even in rural regions, where a lack of testing facilities causes the majority of UTI cases to go undiagnosed. Comparatively, other diagnostic devices employ urine culture, which can take a few days, but this one can measure and identify the type of bacteria in a UTI suspect patient in just 5 minutes.


Urinary Tract Infection Market Trends



  • Rising Use of Urinary Catheters and Other Drainage Devices to propel market growth


With the rising incidence of chronic kidney diseases such as bladder cancer and renal failure, Patients use catheters and other drainage devices. Easier access to patients with urinary catheters and Complicated urinary tract infections. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the risk of bacteriuria is approximately 5% per day. Of patients using urinary catheters, 40% had nosocomial infections. Certain factors include prolonged catheterization duration, lack of systemic antibiotic therapy, bacterial Colonization in the drainage bag, rapid fata underlying disease, etc. May lead to catheter-related urinary tract infections. Therefore, increased use of urinary catheters promotes the growth of the urinary tract Infection Treatment Market.


Women are more prone to UTIs than men. Incidence in adult females increases with age. Infection rates are higher in postmenopausal women because of changes in the vaginal flora that provide a favorable environment for the growth of certain pathogens.


Introduction of portable hand-held devices and availability of home sample collection kits and self-test kits for UTI testing are among the factors likely to boost adoption. For example, in May 2020, Healthy.io Ltd. launched a home testing kit in the UK. Moreover, point-of-care detection of UTIs will be a key growth area, which is expected to increase investments by companies. In addition, researchers are developing technologically advanced disease diagnostic products that are expected to be commercialized in space in the next few years. In January 2020, engineers at the University of Bath developed the UTI test using smartphone cameras. They claim it can detect the presence of E. coli in a urine sample in less than 25 minutes. Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR. Thus, it is anticipated that this aspect will accelerate Urinary Tract Infection market revenue globally.

Urinary Tract Infection Application Insights


Based on application, the Urinary Tract Infection market segmentation includes urethritis, cystitis and pyelonephritis. The cystitis segment dominated the market growth in 2022 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2023-2030. This can be attributed to the high incidence and recurrence rate of cystitis, the increasing number of product approvals, and the high number of diabetic patients more prone to cystitis. Globally, approximately 10 in 100 women develop acute cystitis each year, according to the NCBI's Epidemiology Report. Also, its recurrence rate is higher in women; half of those with cystitis will get cystitis again within a year.


Urinary Tract Infection Pathogen Insights


The market segmentation of Urinary Tract Infection, based on the pathogen, includes escherichia coli, staphylococcus saprophyticus, klebsiella pneumoniae, proteus mirabilis and enterococcus faecalis. The Escherichia coil segment dominated the market growth in 2022 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2023-2030. Healthcare providers are encouraging the increased incidence of community-acquired urinary tract infections caused by the Escherichia coli (E. Coil) pathogen due to the presence of antibiotics in patients. Therefore, stakeholders in the urinary tract infection treatment market must meet the growing demand for effective antibiotic drugs for UTIs caused by Escherichia coli pathogens.


Urinary Tract Infection End User Insights


The market data of Urinary Tract Infection, based on end users, includes hospitals, clinics and self-administered. The hospital segment dominated the market revenue of Urinary Tract Infection  in 2022 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period 2022-2030. This is due to an increase in cases of hospital-acquired urinary tract infections. However, the diagnostic laboratories segment is projected to register the highest CAGR in 2031. Laboratory diagnosis is based on cultured colony counts, which reflect the concentration of organisms in the urine.


May 2023:A prototype diagnostic sensor developed by UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers may one day allow people to confirm the presence of urinary tract infections (UTIs) without waiting for laboratory test results (which can take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours). Up to 85% accuracy in detecting a UTI is presently achieved by using the new method, which involves the detection and determination of the concentration of three protein biomarkers in urine. According to the study's authors, this approach has the potential to increase the diagnostic accuracy of existing electrochemical biosensors, leading to more targeted treatment and better health outcomes for patients.
