Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are one of the leading cause of death across the globe. They are also referred to as nosocomial infections or Healthcare-associated Infections. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 out of every 25 hospital admitted patient gets contracted with HAIs. Moreover, in the U.S., in 2011, around 75,000 hospitalized patients died from HAIs. The global hospital acquired therapeutics market has observed a significant growth owing to rising number of hospital admitted patients and improved diagnostics capable of differentiating different strains of microbes. Complacency among healthcare providers and poor maintenance of hygiene are the two major preventable causes leading to HAIs. The global market is facing significant challenges such as growing antimicrobial resistance among certain strains of bacteria eg. Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). The major drivers of global hospital infection therapeutics market are the rising number of hospital admitted patients, poor infrastructure, understaffing and insufficient hospital equipment, overcrowding and lack of knowledge about blood transfusion safety measures, and rising geriatric population. However, stringent regulatory requirement, high cost of treatment and lack of transparent reimbursement scenario, are likely to hinder the market growth.
