Global Legionella Testing Market to Reach US$ 578.0 Million by 2032, Bolstered by Increasing Geriatric Population

February 09, 2022 | Healthcare

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Legionella Testing Market Report by Application (Water Testing, IVD Testing), End User (Diagnostic Laboratories, Hospital and Clinics, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the global legionella testing market size reached US$ 308.5 Million in 2023. Legionella is a genus of waterborne bacteria that can cause severe pneumonia, also known as Legionnaires' disease, Pontiac fever, and illness with flu-like symptoms. Its testing helps to identify the presence of bacteria or antigens in the blood, urine, and sputum. Presently, various testing methods are performed to diagnose Legionella disease, including urinary antigen, paired serology, Direct Fluorescent Antibody (DFA) stain, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), and culture of lower respiratory secretions.

Global Legionella Testing Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising geriatric population across the globe, as adults over the age of 50 years are prone to developing Legionella. In addition, the growing prevalence of chronic disorders such as cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) represents another major growth-inducing factor. Since patients with chronic illness are at a higher risk of developing Legionella infection, there is an increase in the demand for its effective diagnostic tests and treatments. Moreover, as Legionella-causing bacteria are majorly found in different natural and artificial aquatic environments, health agencies of numerous countries are developing an effective water safety plan (WSP) to minimize the proliferation of bacteria in the water, which is escalating the demand for Legionella testing in workplace buildings. Furthermore, the increasing clinical trials on diagnostic and treatment strategies for adult patients with community-acquired pneumonia are anticipated to propel the market growth in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 578.0 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
