HAIs or nosocomial infections refer to infections that are usually contracted during prolonged hospital stays. These infections are caused by the transmission of pathogens from one patient to another or from a healthcare worker to a patient. Causes of HAIs include lack of proper hospital infrastructure, lack of awareness about pathogen transmission among the hospital staff due to lack of training and poor infection control practices in hospitals. In addition, inadequate facilities and insufficient access to techniques for maintaining hygienic conditions in hospitals also lead to HAIs.
Globally, the HAIs control market is witnessing significant growth due to rising aging population and increasing incidence of various HAIs. In addition, hot and humid climatic conditions in some regions and increasing initiatives undertaken by various government associations spreading awareness about prevention and control of HAIs are driving the HAIs control market. However, lack of primary healthcare facilities and infrastructure such as lack of proper buildings, supplies, medical and communication equipment have a restraining impact on the global market for HAIs control. In addition, untrained staff and lack of awareness in some developing regions have a negative impact on the growth of global HAIs market. The global HAIs control market is estimated at USD 50,807.0 million in 2014 and expected to reach USD 82,889.4 million in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 8.5%.
