Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market Research, 2031

The global urinary tract infection testing market was valued at $574 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $1 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2022 to 2031. A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a type of bacterial infection that occurs between the perirenal fascia and urethral orifice. It is one of the most prevalent bacterial infections worldwide. UTIs have a significant number of financial implications on society. They affect work performance, sexual health, family responsibilities, and quality of life. In addition, recurrence of UTIs is very high in women, which can result in glandular cystitis, pyelonephritis, urinary sepsis, and even acute renal failure leading to death.

Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market

The market for urinary tract infection testing industry is predicted to expand significantly due to the increase in incidence of urinary tract infections around the world. In 2019, there were an estimated 404.61 million cases of UTIs across the world. UTIs are the most commonly occurring infections in aging people. This age group contributes to around 15 to 30% of overall UTIs. The burden of UTIs varies per region, nation, socio-demographic status, age, and sex. In both, hospital as well as community settings, UTIs pose a serious threat to public health. In addition, they are the most prevalent outpatient infections, and most adult women will have more than one UTI at least once in their lifetime. In healthcare settings, around 9.4% of patients are diagnosed with healthcare-related UTIs. The overall increasing economic and emotional burden of UTIs shows that timely testing, appropriate prevention, and medication must be bolstered, especially in aging societies and high-income regions. UTIs. The overall increasing economic and emotional burden of UTIs shows that timely testing, appropriate prevention, and medication must be bolstered, especially in aging societies and high-income regions.

However, errors such as false negative or false positive results in UTI testing may restrain the urinary tract infection testing market growth. Dipstick tests may give false findings in one out of every five patients. Patients may get negative results for a urine test but can still show signs of UTIs. Doctors usually act on such test results, which can result in unnecessary treatment as well as evaluation. Such testing errors create confusion and uncertainty in patients.

The increasing prevalence of diabetes in low and middle-income nations is anticipated to offer ample urinary tract infection testing market opportunity. UTIs are most prevalent in patients with type 2 diabetes. In such patients, UTIs are more acute, driven by more invulnerable pathogens. Diabetic patients exhibit more acute symptoms than patients without diabetes. Treatment of such patients should be according to the harshness of the infection and urine test results. People with diabetes are more susceptible to get urinary tract infections like acute cystitis. Rise in incidence of diabetes worldwide is fueling the high prevalence of cystitis. Moreover, there is an increase in interest in creating innovative and effective technologies that can swiftly and accurately identify UTIs and provide the doctor with recommendations for the best antibiotic to use for a certain patient. This and all other factors are expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities to major market players.

Product launches, mergers, and acquisitions are some of the common strategies implemented by the major market players to maintain competitive edge in the market. For example, in 2019, Scanwell Health, a Los Angeles-based startup, launched an at-home test for urinary tract infections testing. Similar to conventional test methods, a chemically treated strip reacts with a urine sample, and then the company’s computer vision technology is used to evaluate the test results.

Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market by Test Kit

On the basis of test kit, the laboratory test kits segment dominated the market in 2021. The urinary tract infection laboratory test kit can monitor blood, pH, nitrites, leukocytes, and other parameters in urine to determine UTIs. Laboratory test kits can deliver meticulous test results on a smartphone in under a minute. Moreover, patients can re-check if they are infection-free or not simply by utilizing these UTI test kits. These are predicted to be the major factors that will affect the urinary tract infection testing market size during the forecast period.

Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market by Infection Type

On the basis of infection type, the cystitis segment dominated the market in 2021. Recurrent cystitis appears in around 25 percent of women within six months after their first UTI, and the possibility of cystitis increases in women with one or more than one previous UTIs. Cystitis is a bladder-specific urinary tract infection (UTI). It occurs most frequently in women. Uncomplicated cystitis gets cured on its own. However, antibiotics may be required if the severity increases. Patients with uncomplicated cystitis normally show signs of progress in symptoms within three days after the use of antibiotics. Some people experience cystitis frequently and may require ongoing or prolonged medical care. Globally, 10 out of every 100 women get acute cystitis each year, according to NCBI's epidemiology report. In addition, women are more vulnerable to cystitis recurrence than males. Due to all these factors, the growth of the cystitis sub-segment is expected to hold a major market share during the forecast period.

Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market by Test Type

On the basis of test type, the urinalysis segment dominated the global urinary tract infection testing market share in 2021. The demand for urinalysis is projected to increase during the forecast period due to aging societies worldwide. The geriatric population is more vulnerable to urinary tract infections. Urinalysis checks various aspects of the urine sample, including chemical, visual, and microscopic. Urinalysis is increasingly used by healthcare providers to diagnose urinary tract infections (UTIs) along with liver and kidney problems and diabetes. This test can be performed during a routine check-up to evaluate UTI symptoms. A urinalysis involves several examinations of a urine sample. A complete urinalysis will typically include a visual (also called physical) examination, a microscopic examination, and a chemical dipstick test, each of which involves different measurements and evaluations.

Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market by End User

By end user, the hospitals segment dominated the market in 2021. Patients' catheters or invasive urogenital manipulation, which allows germs to enter the bladder and encourages multiplication by creating a sustainable habitat, are the main causes of hospital acquired urinary tract infection. Over 50% of infections are caused by UTIs obtained in hospitals. Numerous tests can identify the infection's pathogen and type in order to effectively treat the UTI. These are predicted to be the major factors that will affect the urinary tract infection testing market size during the forecast period.

Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market by Region

On the basis of region, North America dominated the global market in 2021. In the U.S. alone, UTIs account for over seven million physician visits every year and need over 100,000 hospitalizations. The economic implications of this are over $2 billion annually. 3% of overall hospitalized patients acquire an infection of the urinary tract in a hospital setting due to an indwelling urethral catheter. In Canada, approximately 50% of the geriatric population in long-term care facilities has the presence of bacteria in their urine without showing any symptoms of a urinary tract infection. Furthermore, the overall number of UTIs in Mexico continues to rise. It is a serious public health concern that has put a tremendous burden on the national healthcare system. UTIs are one of the major causes of doctor visits by adults, especially among sexually active women in Mexico. All these factors are expected to increase the demand for urinary tract infection testing in North America.
