Hospital Acquired Infection Control Market: Sterilization, Disinfection, Testing and Treatment The Market for Hospital-Acquired Infection Control (Sterilization, Disinfection, Testing and Treatment) research report by Kalorama Information is now available through RnRMarketResearch.com.

DALLAS, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- This report focuses on preventing, testing and treating hospital-acquired infections in the healthcare environment. The major consideration is given to bacterial nosocomial infections because a) they are the most frequent type of infections spread in the health care delivery setting, and b) the practical aspects of diagnosis and therapy are more meaningful based on a combination of medical and financial considerations. Given the cost of hospital-acquired and healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), demand has increased for solutions that can help the healthcare industry reduce infections and the costs associated with them. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that around 1 in 20 or 5% of hospitalized patients will contract an HAI. Worldwide, the rate of nosocomial infections is between 3.5% and 12% of admissions in developed regions. This has created a market opportunity for companies that can test for, treat and help prevent these infections. This opportunity is detailed in Kalorama Information's report, The Market for Hospital-Acquired Infection Control (Sterilization, Cleaning, Testing, Treatment) available at http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/the-market-for-hospital-acquired-infection-control-sterilization-disinfection-testing-and-treatment-market-report.html .

The majority of competitive participation for Hospital-Acquired Infection control is in the United States and Europe. However, competition is steadily escalating in the United States and Europe, which is encouraging more participation in other areas such as Asia and Latin America. Companies in this report include: Advanced Sterilization Products, Becton Dickinson, Belimed AG, bioMerieux, Cantel, Cepheid, Kimberly-Clark, Merck & Co., Nordion, Pfizer, Roche, Steris and TSO3. In looking at infections in the health environment, we consider the diagnostic and therapeutic technologies that are currently available and attempt to project trends for preventing, detecting and treating these infections. To some extent, we are limited by the activity of the industries associated with the activities mentioned above for these infections. For the most part, these activities are limited and the advanced technologies seen in other areas of medical application are not necessarily present in terms of microbiology.
