According to European Association of Urology, there is an increase in bacterial resistance to antibiotics in the region which leads to more research and development for novel therapeutics. With latest upcoming techniques, urinary tract infection testing market will fuel the growth of the market.
Urinary Tract Infection Testing: Market Dynamics
Urinary tract infection is expected to register significant growth in the market owing to rising prevalence of urinary tract infection globally. Increasing geriatric population is a another factor that is expected to boost the demand for urinary tract infection testing as the elderly population is at the high risk of contracting the same.
Moreover, patients that use urinary catheters are more likely to contract complicated urinary tract infection. This adds on another factor that will spur the growth of the urinary tract infection testing market. Apart from this, manufacturers are currently focus on developing new imaging techniques for urinary tract infection testing which may drive the growth of the urinary tract infection testing market.
However, stringent and complex regulatory approvals for new launch of equipment and lack of government funding for research and development in developing countries may restrain the growth of the market.
Urinary Tract Infection Testing Market: Overview
There has been an increase in the number of urinary tract infection patients across the globe. Urinary tract infection contributes to the second-largest patient pool in the world. Increasing prevalence and demand for better treatment option is likely to foster the growth of the market.
