The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global hospital-acquired infection control market for 2017-2021. The market is segmented on infection type (CAUTIs, SSIs, CLABSIs, and respiratory infections), end-user (hospitals and ICUs, outpatient care centers, and LTCFs), and geography (the Americas, EMEA, and APAC).
The global HAI control market will grow moderately during the forecast period. This will be due to the growing importance given to prevent or diagnose and treat HAIs. The prevalence of HAIs is increasing at alarming rates across the globe, which is increasing the cost burden of healthcare. It also requires the development of effective preventive strategies by healthcare facilities, which has resulted in several biotechnology companies developing systems that accurately diagnose HAIs. Pharmaceutical companies are also developing specific therapies to cure HAIs.

Growth of aging population
Multiple research studies across the world have highlighted the effects of nosocomial infections on the aging population. The incidence of hospital-acquired UTI, infected surgical wounds, and nosocomial pneumonia is the highest among people above the age of 65. Additionally, studies conducted by the CDC in 2016 have indicated that people above the age of 65 accounted for more than 50% of all nosocomial infections in the US. In Australia, the incidence of hospital-acquired infections such as UTIs was high among elderly people suffering from dementia.
Amber Chourasia, a lead lab equipment research analyst at Technavio, says, “The aging population is vulnerable toward HAIs, so the treatment strategies focused on this population will drive the growth of the global HAI control market. Additionally, since the number of people above the age of 65 is increasing globally, they are the biggest target population for vendors in the global HAI control market.”
Increasing innovative measures to prevent HAIs
Innovative immunization methods are also being adopted by healthcare facilities to prevent the spreading of infections. Researchers in Canada have developed a mobile phone application, ImmunizeCA, which will prevent the spreading of infections. The application can scan and track an individual’s immunization records and store them for further use. These features will help reduce the spreading of infections in Canada.
“Innovative immunization methods are changing the landscape of HAI management and routine hospital activities, which is driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, these innovations are being backed by industry experts and global conferences such as the World Congress on Infection Prevention and Control, International Conference on Prevention & Infection Control, and the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.,” adds Amber.
Data analytics contributing to improvements in healthcare facilities
Data analytics refers to the collection of tools and techniques that are used to generate insights and take actions based on retrospective or real-time data. Since the last two decades, healthcare systems have been collecting data through electronic medical records (EMRs) and electronic health records (EHRs). When the data is analyzed using various data analytics techniques, it could reveal valuable conclusions and deductions that can be used to improve healthcare settings and even reduce the prevalence of HAIs.
Several information technology companies are employing various algorithms to arrive at inferences that could help improve HAI control. Government organizations also use data analytics to improve their measures to tackle HAIs. For instance, in 2015, the CDC used data analytics to reveal that CDI caused approximately 15,000 deaths and half a million infections each year.
