Northbrook, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/23/2022 -- According to the new market research report "Blood Culture Tests Market by Method (Automated, Conventional), Product (Consumable, Media, Instruments), Technology (PCR, Microarray, Proteomic), Application (Bacteremia, Mycobacterial), End User (Hospital, Academic Research) - Global Forecast to 2025", published by MarketsandMarkets™, is projected to reach USD 6.1 billion by 2025 from USD 4.0 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 8.9%.

Driver: High incidence of blood stream infec tions;

Nosocomial (hospital-acquired) bloodstream infections are one of the leading causes of mortality across the globe. In the US alone, approximately 250,000 cases of hospital-acquired BSIs occur each year. Globally, bloodstream infections affect about 30 million people leading to 6 million deaths, with 3 million newborns and 1.2 million children suffering from sepsis annually. In Eastern African countries, the proportion of patients with bloodstream infections is reported to range from 11% to 28%. In Ghana, bloodstream infection rates are estimated to be in the range of 9.3% to 11.2% (Source: Journal of Tropical Medicine, 2019). The occurrence of these infections increases the overall duration of hospitalization as well as the cost of treatment. With the high incidence of BSIs, the demand for advanced blood culture techniques that help in the early detection of infections is expected to increase.
