Infection Prevention Products and Services Market Dynamics 

Increasing Prevalence of Hospital Acquired Infections is Boosting Infection Prevention Products and Services Market

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, healthcare-related infections, such as surgical site infections (SSIs), are reported among four in 100 patients that need to get hospitalized. The number of patients suffering from inpatient surgery-related SSIs was around 157,500 in 2011 in the United States (U.S.). Increasing prevalence of hospital acquired infections increased rapidly, which led to over 14.2 million operative procedures that needed to be performed in the inpatient setting, in the U.S. in 2014. This signifies increased risk of SSIs, creating needs for infection prevention products and services.

Hospital acquired infections are prevalent across the world. Demand for surgical infection prevention products and services has been on the rise in the European region as well. A significant rise in the incidence of SSIs or hospital acquired infections was reported during 2011-2014, especially following cholecystectomy operations, as per the ‘Surgical site infections - Annual Epidemiological Report 2016’ by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
