Introduction & Scope


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 $17 billion and $22 billion in 2015 (depending on the products included in the study) with mid single-digit growth through 2020. The North American market and in particular the U.S. holds the largest market share of any region at 42% to 50% and the fastest growing regions for HAI treatments are Brazil and the Asian region, particularly China and India.

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).

This report offers forecasts by treatment segment and type of treatment, from 2015 through 2020, including supporting analyses for projections. The main market segments are analyzed by pharmaceutical treatments, environmental treatments and infection control devices/products.
