Intra-abdominal infection are group of infections occurring within the abdominal cavity and vary from appendicitis, peritonitis, diverticulitis, cholecystitis, cholangitis, to pancreatitis characterized by high risk of complication resulting in high mortality despite treatment. According to the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), Intra-abdominal infection generally extends beyond the organ of origin into the abdominal cavity and is associated with an abscess. Intra-abdominal infections are associated with symptoms such as epigastric pain radiating to the back, vomiting, posterior penetrating ulcer, nausea, decreased appetite and others.
Intra-Abdominal Infection Treatment Market: Drivers and Restraints

Appendicitis is the most common cause of Intra-abdominal infection resulting in more than 300,000 cases each year and over 1 million hospital days. In 2016 about 12.3 million cases of appendicitis were recorded in the U.S. resulting in more than 340,000 surgeries and about 54,870 deaths. Globally about 7.5% of people have appendicitis at some point in their life.

The high mortality rate of intra-abdominal infections is exemplified by peritonitis which have a mortality rate of about 10% when treated properly. Growing geriatric population is another driver of the intra-abdominal infection treatment market as risk of developing intra-abdominal infection and mortality increases with age. The mortality rate for intra-abdominal infection rises to about 40 % in the elderly.
The increasing exposure to bacteria such as staphylococci, Pseudomonas, Candida and Enterococci owing to rising pollution, urbanization is another driver of the intra-abdominal infection treatment market. Rowing resistance to antimicrobials such as penicillin and related beta-lactam antibiotics is another driver of the intra-abdominal infection treatment market value as this necessitates use of expensive antibiotics such as piperacillin, imipenem, ticarcillin, or ciprofloxacin. Diverticulosis affects more than 10% to 25% of the elderly and is the second leading cause of infection-related mortality in the intensive care units. The growing menace of hospital and surgical acquired infections is a strong driver of the intra-abdominal infection treatment market. Almost 157,500 cases of surgical acquired infections were recorded in the United States per year resulting in approximately 8,205 deaths according to the center for disease control and prevention. Surgical acquired infections account for 11% of all deaths in intensive care units in the U.S. and account for a whopping $3.2 billion in attributable cost per year according to the center for disease control and prevention 2018 surgical acquired infections updates.
However, the increasing fragmentation of the market owing to penetration of generics is exerting a pricing pressure on the intra-abdominal infection treatment market. The excessive production capacity of antimicrobials is another cause expected to hamper the intra-abdominal infection treatment market.
