According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Infection Control Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025," the global infection control market grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2014-2019. Infection control refers to the scientific approach and practical solutions that aim to avert or control the spread of infections in healthcare settings. Numerous hospitals, clinics and laboratories use these solutions to ensure the safety of patients and healthcare workers by preventing their exposure to pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi. These pathogens can commonly cause ear, eye, skin, urinary tract, lung and respiratory, stomach and intestinal, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among individuals through contact, sprays and splashes, inhalation, and sharps injuries. As a result, certain standard procedures are maintained by healthcare professionals to ensure patient and employee safety. Some of these practices include standard immunizations, cleaning, disinfecting and sterilizing objects and surfaces, and mandatory usage of protective clothing, including gloves, masks and surgical drapes and gowns.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Infection Control Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the increasing incidences of nosocomial infections on the global level. This can be attributed to rising hospital admissions, along with the increasing number of surgical procedures that make patients prone to infections. This, coupled with the increasing health consciousness among the masses, has impelled healthcare professionals to ensure strict implementation of infection control measures. The market is also driven by a considerable rise in the elderly population across the globe. Since the geriatric population is more prone to develop hospital-acquired infections (HAI), there has been a significant rise in the demand for infection control solutions. The market is further driven by the growing emphasis on food sterilization and disinfection for reducing the risks of contamination. Moreover, numerous government and non-government organizations (NGOs) are undertaking initiatives to spread awareness regarding the need for disinfection and maintenance of proper hygiene in the healthcare sector. This, along with technological advancements in sterilization equipment and the increasing preference for outsourcing sterilization services, is expected to create a positive outlook for the market. Furthermore, on account of the rapid spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) across the globe, the World Health Organization (WHO) has issued guidelines for the prevention and control of acute respiratory diseases that includes detailed instructions pertaining to standard infection control precautions, such as disinfection and sterilization, across healthcare settings. This, in turn, is significantly boosting the uptake for masks, personal protection equipment (PPE) and sanitizers, thus contributing to the market growth. Some of the other growth-inducing factors include the launch of single-use medical nonwoven devices and the easy availability of sanitizers with high-intensity infection prevention capabilities. Looking forward, the market is expected to exhibit strong growth during 2020-2025.
