Legionella is an infection affecting the lower respiratory tract, which can lead to severe pneumonia, Pontiac fever, and illness with flu-like symptoms. Its testing helps to identify the existence of bacteria or antigens in blood, urine, and sputum. Presently, various testing methods are available to diagnose Legionella disease, including urinary antigen, paired serology, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Direct Fluorescent Antibody (DFA) stain, and culture of lower respiratory secretions. As per the testing results, macrolides, quinolones, tetracycline, doxycycline, minocycline, trimethoprim and other antibiotic treatments are usually administered to patients.
Adults over the age of 50 years are more likely to develop Legionella. Consequently, the increasing geriatric population worldwide represents one of the major factors influencing the market positively. Moreover, the rising number of individuals who smoke and have cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), or other chronic illnesses are at the risk of infection and hospitalization. Since the mortality rate of Legionella is high, there is an increase in the demand for its effective diagnostic tests and treatments. Besides this, Legionella-causing bacteria are majorly found in different natural and artificial aquatic environments, such as cooling towers, respiratory therapy equipment, fountains, misting devices, spa pools, and water systems in hotels, homes, and factories. As a result, health agencies of numerous countries are developing an effective water safety plan (WSP) to minimize the proliferation of Legionella in the water. This, in turn, is escalating the demand for Legionella testing in workplace buildings to comply with the legislation. Furthermore, recent clinical trials on diagnostic and treatment strategies for adult patients with community-acquired pneumonia are contributing to the growth of the market.
