Industry Trend Analysis
The global infection surveillance solutions market is expected to be around $800 million by 2025. Increasing incidence of healthcare associated infections (HAIs) is a key driving factor for the growth of infection surveillance solutions market. Some of the common HAIs affecting patients in healthcare centers are surgical wound infections, respiratory tract infections, ventilator associated pneumonia and urinary tract infections. Increasing number of surgeries performed around the world and rising healthcare IT expenditure are some of the additional factors contributing to the growth of global infection surveillance solutions market. However, factors such as high cost of infection surveillance software and dearth of skilled professionals for operating such advanced systems can restrain the growth of infection surveillance solutions market during the forecast period.
Product Outlook and Trend Analysis
Software segment held a major share of the infection surveillance solutions market in 2016 as software solutions serve as effective mediums to efficiently manage patient data. Timely analysis and interpretation of such huge data is easily possible using software solutions. The services segment is expected to witness fastest growth during the forecast period as associated services for software solutions are gaining huge demand in order to ensure proper functioning of infection surveillance software solutions.
End User Outlook and Trend Analysis
In 2016, the large hospitals segment dominated the end user market for infection surveillance solutions owing to large scale adoption of infection surveillance systems by such hospitals. As these systems are priced on a higher end, large hospitals can easily afford these advanced systems. Moreover, with increase in the size of hospitals, the need for effective management of patient data also increases prompting the demand for adoption of complex infection surveillance solutions.
Regional Trend Analysis
North America held the largest share of the global infection surveillance solutions market in 2016. This dominance on a global level can be attributed to increasing healthcare expenditure in the region, rising incidence of HAIs and rapid advancements in information technology (IT). On the other hand, Asia-Pacific infection surveillance solutions market is expected to exhibit fastest growth during the forecast period owing to rising awareness related to HAIs, increasing availability of advanced healthcare facilities along with increasing medical tourism in emerging countries such as India and China.
