Market growth analysis
Growing cases of HAI is one of the major factors driving the global sterility testing market. The increased number of HAI cases are causing huge financial burden for both hospitals and patients. It also increases patient's cost burden. According to CDC, 1.7 million HAIs occur in US hospitals each year, resulting in 99,000 deaths and an estimated USD 20 billion in healthcare costs.
According to Tasneem Ali, a lead analyst at Technavio for lab equipment research, “Sterility testing in hospital ensures better patient safety and less risk of contamination from the medical instruments, disposables, and patient wards. Thus, the demand for sterility testing products is increasing due to increasing case of HAI and an effort to reduce them.”
