Blood stream infection is a condition in which bacterial, fungal, or any infection is detected in the blood. It generally occurs when infection in any part of body enters the blood stream. This infection is also described as blood poisoning, bacteremia, septicemia, or sepsis. Self-diagnosis of blood stream infections is difficult owing to its common symptoms (such as chills, fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and others); thereby testing is mandatory for detection of infection in blood.
Increase in prevalence of infections such as abdominal infections, dental infections, kidney or urinary infection, and chronic diseases owing to the sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle drives the market growth. In addition, rise in prevalence geriatric population, preventive healthcare awareness, and blood donations fuel the growth of the market. However, stringent government regulations associated to the safety and efficacy of blood stream infection testing hinder the growth of the market. Ongoing R&D activities related to blood stream infection testing are anticipated to present new opportunities for the market.
