Most Recent “Hospital-Acquired Infections” Published by

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A hospital acquired infection (HAI), also known as a 'nosocomial' infection, is an infection acquired during hospital care which was not present or incubating at the time of admission. Infections which occur more than 48 hours after admission are also considered nosocomial.

Both diagnostics and treatment segments taken together are valued at more than $9 billion for 2010 with 2015 sales expected to reach $10.3 billion. The market has grown by 3% year-on-year, with sales increasing from $7.9 billion in 2005. With the treatment segment struggling to maintain growth, the testing segment is likely to offset declines starting in 2012.

New market research report “Hospital-Acquired Infections: Diagnostic Markets and Testing Developments, Treatments, Key Competitors and Trends” worked out by Kalorama Information focuses mainly on bacterial nosocomial infections with some mention of viral infections. The study features valuable data and information including total size and growth of the market, key issues and trends impacting the sector, provides comparison of molecular testing with conventional testing, offers detailed company profiles and future market forecasts to 2015.
