Healthcare-Associated Gram-Negative Infections Epidemiology Scenario and Future Trends Forecasted to 2026

Market Research HUB

Albany, New York, September 19, 2017: Health care-associated infections (HAIs) are among the most common complications of hospital care, resulting in 1.7 million infections and 99,000 deaths each year. Infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria are of particular public health concern since they are at the root of approximately 30-70% of HAIs across the globe. Considering this fact, a study titled “EpiCast Report: Healthcare-Associated Gram-Negative Infections – Epidemiology Forecast to 2026” has been added to the massive research catalog of Market Research Hub (MRH). The study offers an overview of the risk factors, comorbidities, and global trends of healthcare-associated Gram-negative infections in the 7MM which are U.S., France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK and Japan.

In the initial section, the report starts-off with an overview of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs). HAIs are infections that people get as a result of the provision of healthcare. It is considered as a major threat to patient safety. The four most common types of HAIs are related to invasive devices or surgical procedures and include Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI), Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI), Surgical site infection (SSI) and Ventilator-associated events (VAE).

Moreover, the study also includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the suspected incident cases of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and diagnosed incident cases of Gram-negative HAIs. The report finds that suspected incident cases of CAUTI, CLABSI, HAP/VAP, and SSI in the 7MM will grow by an Annual Growth Rate (AGR) of 0.60% per year over the next 10 years, from 2,592,739 cases in 2016 to 2,747,836 in 2026. At present, Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) caused by drug-resistant Gram-negative pathogens are a significant burden on the U.S. healthcare system. In the 7MM, the U.S. will have the maximum number of suspected incident cases, with 1,311,068 in 2016, while Japan will have the lowest number of suspected incident cases, with 84,847 in 2016.

Gram-negative bacteria cause infections including pneumonia, bloodstream infections, wound or surgical site infections, and meningitis in healthcare settings. Gram-negative bacteria are resilient to multiple drugs and are gradually resistant to most available antibiotics. For these infections, the report presents an analysis of suspected and diagnosed incident cases segmented by CAUTI, CLABSI, Hospital-associated pneumonia (HAP) and SSI. Infection site-specific diagnosed incident cases of gram-negative HAIs are further categorized by causative agent (Acinetobacter species, Enterobacter species, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella species, Pseudomonas aeruginosa).

The report also finds that, in the 7MM, the US will have the maximum number of diagnosed incident cases, in 2016 with 505,544; whereas Japan will have the least number of diagnosed incident cases, with 41,245 in 2016. This increase can be attributed to changes in the underlying population structure of each market. Through the above findings, this report will allow readers to develop business strategies by understanding the trends shaping and driving the global Gram-negative HAI market.
