Sepsis Diagnostics Market 2
Sepsis Diagnostics Market 2


Global Sepsis Diagnostics Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 9% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Sepsis is a life-threatening medical emergency in which one’s body produces an extreme response to an infection causing damage to its own organs and tissues. Based on the severity of infection, sepsis can be of three types: sepsis, severe sepsis, and septic shock.

The sepsis diagnostics market is anticipated to grow globally on account of the growing technological advancement and frequent product launches. For example, in January 2020, Danaher corporation launched the DxH 690T hematology analyzer in the United States for the early detection of sepsis. Furthermore, rising public-private funding for effective sepsis diagnostic research activities, growing awareness about sepsis, and increasing regulatory approvals are also some of the prominent reasons contributing to the market growth.

Furthermore, the rising prevalence of infectious diseases and hospital-associated infections (HAI) that can trigger sepsis, especially in the elderly population, newborn babies, and people suffering from chronic ailments. For instance, in any developed country, 7 out of every 100 hospitalized patients probably develop hospital-acquired infections, while this number is expected to rise to 10 in developing countries owing to its not so well-maintained healthcare infrastructure, as per the WHO. Thus, with the rapid increase in HAIs across the globe, there is a surging demand for effective sepsis diagnostic solutions.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Technology, microbiology segment holds the major share”

Based on technology, the market is fragmented into microbiology, immunoassays, molecular diagnostics, and flow cytometry. In 2020, the microbiology technology segment grabbed a considerable market share, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast owing to the extensive use of this technology for the diagnosis of sepsis as it allows accurate identification of different microorganisms. In addition, the low cost of various microbiology techniques is also adding pace to the market growth. However, the molecular diagnostics segment is anticipated to grow at a lucrative CAGR in the upcoming years.

“Amongst Products, blood culture media segment holds the major share”

Based on product, the sepsis diagnostics market is segmented into blood culture media, assay & reagents, instruments, and software. In 2020, the blood culture media segment accounted for a significant market share, and it is projected that it will exhibit considerable growth during the forecast period as it is only the most cost-effective and convenient mode of testing. Also, the easy availability of blood culture media in the market is leading to the rising utilization of this media by various hospitals as well as pathology laboratories for sepsis diagnosis. However, with the growing adoption of various software platforms by healthcare providers for better diagnosis and management of sepsis, the software segment is also anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR over the projected timeframe.

“Amongst Pathogen, bacterial segment holds the major share”

Based on pathogens, the sepsis diagnostics market is divided into bacterial, fungal, viral, and others. The bacterial segment accounted for a significant market share in 2020 and it is estimated that it will exhibit considerable growth during the forecast period. This can be due to the high prevalence of bacterial sepsis with almost 62.2% of patients infected due to gram-negative bacteria and 46.8% with gram-positive bacteria. Moreover, the increasing R&D activities and swift regulatory approval of new and advanced solutions for bacterial sepsis are also some of the factors expected to significantly support the growth of this segment.

“Amongst Test Type, laboratory tests segment holds the major share”

Based on test type, the sepsis diagnostics market is divided into laboratory tests and point-of-care (POC) tests. The laboratory tests segment occupied the major share of the sepsis diagnostics market in 2020 and it is expected to grow with substantial CAGR in the upcoming years. The growth of this segment is attributed to the greater of laboratory testing in comparison to POC testing while diagnosing sepsis. Also, the presence of technologically advanced products in these laboratories has made the reliance of the public and physicians on these labs which in turn is also boosting the segment growth. However, POC testing is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period owing to the new launches of rapid diagnosis assay kits in the market.

“Amongst End-Users, hospitals & specialty clinics segment holds the major share”

Based on end-user, the market is fragmented into hospitals & specialty clinics, pathology & reference laboratories, and others. In 2020, the hospitals & specialty clinics segment grabbed a considerable market share, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast as hospitals are the surge in the number of patients hospitalization and presence of in-house diagnostic laboratories in the hospital setting that performs a large number of blood culture tests.

“North America represents one of the largest markets of sepsis diagnostics market”

For a better understanding of the market dynamics of the sepsis diagnostics market, a detailed analysis was conducted for different regions across the globe including North America (the U.S, Canada, and the Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, Spain, United Kingdom, Italy, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Australia, Japan, and Rest of APAC), Rest of World has been conducted.
