Sepsis Diagnostics Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our research report, the global sepsis diagnostics market size was worth USD 1014 million in 2022 and is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 8.51% to reach USD 1525 million by 2027. The increasing prevalence of the disease and its fatal effects have stimulated its growth.

Sepsis is the body’s reaction to the bacteria, fungal, viral, or plastic infection, leading to the systemic inflammatory response, organ failure, or organ dysfunction.  Sepsis is emerging as a leading cause of mortality around the globe. As a result, the market players are launching advanced technological products to ensure sepsis diagnosis at the initial stages. Moreover, companies enter mergers and acquisitions to operate research and development activities and expand nationwide market growth.

As per the reports, some products have already been introduced in the United States in food and drug administration for diagnosis purposes. According to the Centers for disease control and prevention, it is estimated that 1.7 million people suffer from hospital-acquired infections (HAI) every year in the United States. As per the ECDC, 2013, around 4.1 million patients were diagnosed with HAI in Europe. However, developed countries with advanced facilities and fewer sepsis cases have been recorded in the study of more than 7000 patient outcomes using the Early Sense systems. The number of ICU days for transferred cases has decreased by 46%. 

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.


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, 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 the 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.


Sepsis is a potentially fatal illness that must be recognized and treated by trained health care professionals as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the global shortage of competent professionals and health workers is a big problem faced by the sepsis diagnostic market. As a result, almost half of the patients with severe sepsis transferred by the hospital system are accompanied by emergency medical care. On the other hand, the shortage of skilled emergency care workers affects all stages of patient care, including raising awareness of sepsis, assessing patients for sepsis diagnostic equipment, and making appropriate treatment decisions.

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 2021. 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 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 2020.         

Sepsis Diagnostics Market Analysis – By Product:

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

Based on the product, Blood culture media was estimated to be the largest segment in 2020. It grows more rapidly over the forecast period because physicians know blood culture as the gold standard form and a cost-effective screening method. Most clinicians consider the blood culture media the cost-effective and standard method.

The assay kits and reagents segment will show lucrative growth due to their new diagnostic capability and the implementation of automated testing by significant companies.

Sepsis Diagnostics Market Analysis – By Technology:

  • Microbiology         
  • Molecular Diagnostics
