Report Description

Infectious Disease Diagnostic Market was valued at ~US$ 25 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Infectious diseases are a broad term. There are a variety of illnesses and a wide number of microorganisms that can cause infectious diseases. Organisms causing infectious diseases includes parasites, bacterium, virus, or fungus. Most of these organisms are not life-threatening, however they can cause an array of illnesses training from mild to life threatening. These organisms can be transmitted from person to person by animal bites, or consuming contaminated food or water. Anyone can be affected by infectious diseases; however Immunocompromised individuals are at a greater risk of acquiring the infection. Infectious diseases can be treated with antibiotics (especially bacterial). Other infections like viral infections can be treated with antiviral medications and fungal infections can be treated with antifungals. Over time however, microorganisms are becoming resistant to drugs, thus one should always consider a doctor for the best treatment option.


The prevalence of infectious diseases has increased over the years globally. According to the World Health Organization, more than 13 million people die from infectious diseases each year. In some developing countries it leads to 1 in 2 deaths. The most vulnerable are the children, women, poor and the elderly. Infectious diseases are one of the leading cause of deaths around the world. Factors for the high occurrence of infectious diseases includes environmental, behavioral, and socio-economic factors.
