About the Market

In the past few years, the high incidence of nosocomial infections or hospital acquired infections (HAIs) has led to a high rate of morbidity and has emerged as a major concern for governments, particularly in developing and underdeveloped countries. In first world countries, various regulations are in place for penalizing hospitals exhibiting high incidences of HAIs, auguring well for the hospital acquired disease testing market. In contrast, the absence of proper regulations and stringent policies limiting the adoption of molecular-biology-based diagnostics are restricting the expansion of the market across emerging nations. By tests, this market is segmented into urinary tract, pneumonia, bloodstream-associated, MRSA, surgical site infections etc. The hospital acquired urinary tract infection diagnostics segment holds a dominating share in the overall market, due to its high prevalence and impact on morbidity. Additionally, the market for testing solutions such as surgical site infections and pneumonia (ventilator-associated and hospital-associated infections) shall also expand due to the growing incidence of these conditions in emerging economies of Latin America, Asia-Pacific, and other developing regions. Some of the key players in global hospital acquired disease testing market are Diatherix Laboratories Inc., Qiagen GmbH, Gen-Probe Inc., L Hoffman-La Roche, Cepheid Inc., Meridian Biosciences, Life Technologies Corporation, Nordion Inc., and Cantel Medical Corporation.

The country is the third largest FDI recipient in Africa with most of it going to the telecommunications sector. The government is taking steps to curb the unemployment rate and provide continuous electricity. It has a large English-speaking population and hence is a popular choice for foreign investment.
