Healthcare-Acquired Infection: Devices, Pharmaceuticals, and Environmental Products

LONDON, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Healthcare-Acquired Infection: Devices, Pharmaceuticals, and Environmental Products

http://www.reportbuyer.com/pharma_healthcare/healthcare/healthcare_acquired_infection.html

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

The objective of this study is to provide an in-depth analysis and forecast of selected areas of the global healthcare-acquired infections (HAI) market. For purposes of this report, HAI includes hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient surgery centers and dialysis centers. The focus of this report is on selected devices, pharmaceuticals and environmental products currently used or under development for treatment of viral, bacterial and fungal infections.
The global market for HAI products is estimated at between $12 billion and $17 billion in 2012 (depending on the products included in the study) with high single-digit growth through 2018. The North American market and in particular the U.S. holds the largest market share of any region at 45% to 50% and the fastest growing regions for HAI treatments are Brazil and the Asian region, particularly China and India.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

Healthcare-acquired infections are viral, bacterial or fungal infections that patients acquire after they are admitted to a healthcare facility. Patients can acquire these infections from routine care; surgery; or as a complication from the use of medical devices such as ventilators, catheters and intravenous lines.
This report is designed to investigate the global HAI market by treatment area and by type of treatment, with supporting tables and figures to illustrate projected growth. Within each type of treatment, regional analyses will focus on the Americas (i.e., Canada, U.S., Mexico, Central America and South America); EMRA (i.e., Europe, the Middle East, Russia and Africa); and Asia (i.e., Japan, China, India, other Western Pacific countries such as Australia and New Zealand and other Southeast Asian countries).

SCOPE AND FORMAT

This report offers forecasts by treatment segment and type of treatment, from 2013 through 2018, including supporting analyses for projections.
The main market segments are analyzed by pharmaceutical treatments, environmental treatments and infection control devices/products.
This report is a valuable tool for anyone assessing the HAI market and attempting to devise a strategy to successfully compete in this market. This report provides background on the structure of the HAI market and the chief challenges and opportunities it faces. It offers the information needed to understand the current market and to address the emerging one.
The report is an invaluable tool for business planners, acquisition specialists, licensing strategists, product managers, market research analysts, investing consultants and others interested in the HAI market, its products, its participants and its future.

METHODOLOGIES AND INFORMATION SOURCES

Information for this report was obtained from a variety of primary and secondary research sources, including industry analysts, annual reports and agencies and organizations such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), American Hospital Association (AHA), Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA), American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS) and government agencies outside the U.S. Secondary sources include literature searches, journal articles, product literature and press releases.
When precise information was not available, a consensus has been made using reasonable assumptions and estimates based on historical data.
