Global Hospital Infection Therapeutics Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast 2012 – 2018
Hospital acquired infections are the infections acquired by the patients following the admission in hospitals within 48 hours. These conditions are also known as nosocomial infections. The causative agents of nosocomial infections include various types of microorganisms such as bacteria (Gram-positive and Gram-negative), viruses and fungi. The most common form of pathogens known to cause infections are superbugs such as staphylococcus aureus, escherichia Coli, enterococcus species, pseudomonas aeruginosa and klebshiella pneumonia, etc. Infections of surgical wounds, urinary tract infections and lower respiratory infections are the most common nosocomial infections.
These pathogens have a high degree of resistance to antibiotic treatments. The common sources of nosocomial infection pathogens are contaminated air, water, food and medicine, used instruments and bio- medical wastes.
According to the WHO over 1.4 million people worldwide suffer from nosocomial infection related complications. The major factors influencing the development of nosocomial infections account for the healthcare settings, age, immune status and disease diagnostics and therapeutic interventions. Increasing resistance of the causative agents to antibiotics and the emerging new strains prove to be a crucial factor impacting the hospital infection therapeutic market. The emerging trend to treat nosocomial infections includes combination therapies which comprises of administration of antibiotics effective against superbugs. Some of the examples of emerging antibiotics are imipenem/cilastatin, combination is used against ESBL (extended spectrum β- Lactamases) producing E.coli and Klebsheilla species. Ceftaroline, fifth generation cephalosporin is effective against multi drug resistant gram positive bacteria.
Rigorous research and development, use of combination therapies, increased awareness about nosocomial infections and its impacts, development of new drugs drive the hospital acquired therapeutic market and holds potential growth conditions. Geographically, North America leads this market followed by Europe. However increase in the development of healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies will lead to growth in demand for hospital infection therapeutics in Asia-Pacific and other parts of the world. Some of the major players in this market include Abbott Laboratories, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, GlaxoSmithKline, Daiichi Sankyo, Pfizer and others.
