Impact of COVID-19 on the global sepsis diagnostics market:

The COVID-19 pandemic had a moderate positive impact on sales of diagnostic products for sepsis. The worldwide spread of Covid-19 and new cases of sepsis in Covid-19 patients have forced the leading healthcare solution suppliers to develop sepsis diagnostic technologies. The pandemic outbreak increases the demand for rapid diagnosis and accelerates the use of equipment, reagents, and assay kits to detect sepsis. The movement restrictions caused by the pandemic delayed people's health examinations, affecting the number of tests performed and the sale of reagents. The current COVID-19 pandemic highlights the risks faced by older people prone to complications such as acute respiratory distress syndrome due to pneumonia, which increases the risk of sepsis. Therefore, there is an increasing need for the early diagnosis of sepsis in patients with COVID-19 infection.

MARKET DRIVERS:

The growth of the global sepsis diagnostic market is anticipated to be driven by factors such as the growing burden of infectious diseases and an increasing number of sepsis incidences globally.

According to thelancet.com, an estimated 48.9 million sepsis cases were identified in 2017, in which 11.0 sepsis-related deaths were recorded. People with weak immune systems and chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and AIDS are vulnerable to contracting sepsis, which is expected to drive market growth. In the US, sepsis amongst hospitalized sufferers is growing by 8.7% each year. It is anticipated that there are more than a million cases of sepsis amongst hospitalized sufferers yearly, driving the need for sepsis tests. The continuous expenditure in the healthcare sector is also boosting its infrastructure, making sepsis tests accessible to more people. Many manufacturers of sepsis diagnosis are expanding their product offerings with point-of-care technology to detect sepsis quickly and reduce the time required for overall diagnosis. BACTEC Plus, BacT / Alert, and BACTEC FX blood culture equipment manufactured by BD Company (USA) are automated microbial detection systems that enable rapid diagnosis of sepsis. 

Hospital-received infections are a prime motive of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Urinary tract infections, pneumonia, and sepsis are the most common infections caused in hospitals. The senior population and people suffering from persistent illness are driving the demand for sepsis diagnostic products because they are more prone to hospital-received infections due to their weak immune systems.

Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains and rising concern about the health of people worldwide, and growing healthcare expenditure is projected to improve the market growth. Government incentives and investment expenditure to improve healthcare propel the sepsis diagnostics market during the forecast period.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

Poor awareness levels about sepsis and its early diagnosis among people is one of the key factors hampering the market growth. Limited access to diagnostic tools and technologies in under-developing countries, and the scarcity of skilled personnel that can perform diagnostic tests for sepsis are further hindering the market growth. High costs associated with the tests and equipment of sepsis diagnostics, particularly among the low-resource settings limit the market growth. In addition, factors such as the presence of a stringent regulatory environment for new diagnostic tests for sepsis, competition from alternative technologies such as biomarkers and imaging tests, and unfavorable reimbursement policies for sepsis diagnostics in some countries are inhibiting the market’s growth rate.

This market research report on the global sepsis diagnostics market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on the pathogen, product, technology, method, usability, end-user, and region.

Sepsis Diagnostics Market Analysis – By Pathogen:

  • Bacterial Sepsis
    • Gram-Negative Bacterial Sepsis
    • Gram-Positive Bacterial Sepsis
  • Fungal Sepsis
  • Other Pathogen Infections

Based on the pathogen, the bacterial sepsis segment is forecasted to register the leading market share in the global sepsis diagnostics market during the forecast period. Since most patients suffering from blood poisoning are bacterial infections, the bacterial sepsis segment held the most significant share of the global sepsis diagnostics market in 2022. Gram-negative bacteria are the most frequent bacterial sepsis. Therefore, the gram-positive bacterial sepsis segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Extensive research and development activities and favorable regulatory approval of novel solutions are expected to support the segment's growth.

Due to the rise of Candida infection resulting in septic poisoning, fungal sepsis should expand at an appealing CAGR. However, this disease comes from fewer viruses and parasites, so this segment accounted for a minimal share in 2022. 

Sepsis Diagnostics Market Analysis – By Product:

  • Instruments
  • Blood Culture Media
  • Assay Kits & Reagents 
  • Software 

Based on the product, the blood culture media segment is predicted to play the leading role in the global sepsis diagnostics market during the forecast period. The growing usage of blood culture media in clinical settings as it is considered the gold standard for detecting bacterial or fungal infections in the blood are majorly driving segmental growth. The cost-effectiveness of blood culture media is another notable attribute boosting the segment’s growth rate.

On the other hand, the assay kits and reagents segment is predicted to hold a considerable share of the worldwide market during the forecast period owing to their new diagnostic capability and the implementation of automated testing by key market participants. The growth of the segment is further driven by the rising usage of assay kits and reagents to detect the presence of specific biomarkers in blood that may indicate the presence of sepsis.

Sepsis Diagnostics Market Analysis – By Technology:

  • Microbiology 
  • Molecular Diagnostics 
  • Immunoassays 
  • Flow Cytometry 
  • Other Technologies

Based on technology, the microbiology segment is predicted to hold the leading share of the global sepsis diagnostics market during the forecast period owing to factors such as the growing use of blood cultures in microbiology for the diagnosis of sepsis, increasing incidence of sepsis and the need for accurate and timely diagnosis to prevent mortality. This is because microbiological techniques allow the use of media tests to detect and identify microorganisms for the diagnosis of sepsis accurately. In addition, new strategic initiatives by key companies are driving segment growth. For example, in April 2019, BD launched a new platelet quality control medium, BD BACTEC, to help detect and mitigate the occurrence of sepsis in patients undergoing platelet transfusions.
