Infections are caused by microorganisms resides inside the host body. The colonization of microbes is beneficial and sometimes fatal, vary according to the host immune resistance and drug susceptibility. In general biologist classified living organisms which are called as bacteria, virus, protozoa, fungi, Parasites, Prions, Viroid’s (plant pathogens, they affect the health of plants). The overlap of the kingdoms in this figure is intentional, because, given the evolution of increasingly complex and diverse species.
Human with infection causing agent inside the body called host and organisms as parasite. These tiny microbes colonize inside the body and reproduce. The organism that causes infection is also called as infectious agent. The resided organism that harms a host's health is often called a pathogen. The infection can be varied to different stages in accordance to various types of infectious agents that establishes successful site of infection in the host cause disease. Infectious agents come in many shapes and sizes. The single celled microscopic organisms are called Bacteria and protozoa, while viruses are even smaller. Fungi grow like plants and helminths that resemble worms.
The death rate of people is more due to infectious diseases than any other single cause. Infectious diseases are caused by microbes. Microbes are tiny living organisms which are ubiquitous and are omnipresent- in air, soil and water. The mode of transmission of infection varies different ways by touching, eating, drinking or breathing something that contains a germ, spread through animal, insect bites, and sexual contact.
The global market for infectious disease treatments totaled $64.8 billion in 2017. The market should total $99 billion by 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9% from 2017 to 2022.
The global infectious disease diagnostics market is expected to reach USD 25.43 billion by 2027 from USD 15.57 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 5.6%. The increasing global prevalence of infectious diseases, the shift in focus from centralized laboratories to decentralized point-of-care testing, and growth in funding for research on infectious disease diagnostics are some the factors driving the growth of this market.
The global prevalence of infectious diseases such as influenza, HPV, hepatitis, HIV, and tuberculosis are considerably high in spite of significant improvements in sanitation practices and medicine. Many of the currently available diagnostic techniques are slow, involve complex procedures, and lack specific identification of causative agents. Owing to this, patients receive empiric, broad-spectrum antimicrobial therapy rather than appropriate therapies. This has resulted in the emergence of super-resistant microbes
On the basis of technology, the market is broadly segmented into immunodiagnostics, clinical microbiology, PCR, INAAT, DNA sequencing & NGS, DNA microarrays, and others. The immunodiagnostics segment accounted for the largest share of the global infectious disease diagnostics market in 2018. This dominant share is attributed to the increasing use of immunoassays in POC infectious disease testing, development of novel tests, rising trend of automation, and increasing awareness about health and fitness. On the basis disease type, the market is broadly segmented into hepatitis, HIV, HAIs, CT/NG, HPV, TB, Influenza and others. The hepatitis diagnostics segment accounted for the largest share of the global infectious disease diagnostics market in 2018 and HAIs diagnostics segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of HAIs diagnostics is attributed to factors such as the rising burden of MRSA infections; increasing number of new products launched in the market; and increasing adoption of technologically advanced HAI diagnostic tests such as BD MAX Cdiff assays, Xpert MRSA NxG, and ARIES C. difficile assays that are based on the PCR technology.
In 2018, North America accounted for the largest share of the global infectious disease diagnostics market. This largest share is attributed to the presence of a highly developed healthcare system, increasing prevalence of infectious diseases, the presence of a large number of leading national clinical laboratories, and easy accessibility to technologically advanced instruments in the region.
The key players in the global infectious disease diagnostics market are Abbott (US), Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) (US), bioMérieux (France), Bio-Rad (US), and Roche (Switzerland).
In accordance to IDSA Infectious Diseases Society of America (National Medical Society) & Global Infectious Diseases Association there is an urgent, immediate need for new therapeutic agents with activity against these resistant infectious diseases causing tricky invaders. IDSA is encouraged by the prospect of success for some agents currently in preclinical development to control infectious diseases caused by antibiotic resistance microbes. But still there is no evidence that this need will be fulfilled in the predictable future. Furthermore, we remain concerned that the infrastructure for discovering and developing new antibacterial continues to stagnate, thereby risking the future pipeline of antibacterial drugs.
