Global Legionella Testing Market: Overview
Legionella testing has become an important part of the healthcare scenario in many developed countries in recent years. Even though legionella is noncontagious and doesn’t always cause diseases, testing for its presence is a necessary step in minimizing the spread of diseases in a country’s population. Even though legionella needs a specific set of circumstances to thrive, it can survive with minimal oxygen and is immune to chlorine. As a result, legionella testing has become a part of the healthcare sector protocol in several countries, leading to a steady rise in the demand for legionella testing procedures and equipment.
The report studies the global legionella testing market comprehensively, taking into account the market’s geographical breakdown, competitive landscape, and pricing pressures. This helps readers get a clear idea about the leading regional markets for legionella testing, the key players operating in the global legionella testing market, and the micro- and macroeconomic factors that affect the pricing structure of the legionella testing industry.
Antimicrobial therapy is the most commonly practiced remedy against legionella diseases and takes up a significant share in the global legionella testing market. Some of the leading antibiotics used in the treatment of legionella diseases are quinolones, tetracyclines, macrolides, ketolides, and rifampin. Fluoroquinolones are considered effective medication against legionella diseases.
Global Legionella Testing Market: Trends and Opportunities
The steady advancement in the field of immunodiagnostics has been the crucial driver for the global legionella testing market. The intensive research into medical technology, optics technology, and microbiology in recent years has enabled smooth development of improved immunodiagnostic technologies. The rising use of automation technologies in diagnostics is another key factor expected to aid the expansion of the global legionella testing market in the coming years.
Due to the widespread prevention measures being employed in developed regions, the legionella testing market is strong in developed countries. On the other hand, the increasing awareness about the risks of legionella has led to steady growth of the legionella testing market in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America. Legionella, if untreated, can cause wounds and complications such as kidney failure, lung failure, and septic shock. The rising awareness regarding the same is a crucial driver for the global legionella testing market.
Another key driver for the global legionella testing market is the entry of new players in the market. The healthcare sector has become a prime investment hub in the last few years, which has drastically restructured the pricing structure of the industry. This is likely to remain a key driver for the legionella testing market in the coming years, as the untapped healthcare sector in emerging regions such as Southeast Asia and Latin America has significant potential for new investment.
Global Legionella Testing Market: Geographical and Competitive Landscape
The leading contributors to the global legionella testing market are North America and Europe. The high number of legionella patients in North America and the presence of several of the industry’s key players has led to steady dominance of the region in the global legionella testing market, while the supportive stance of European countries such as Germany and the UK towards advanced healthcare research has also allowed them to gain a vital place in the global legionella testing market’s hierarchy. The extensive promotion of legionella medication in Europe in recent years is thus likely to remain a key driver for the Europe legionella testing market in the coming years.
The report also sheds light on the competitive workings of the global legionella testing market by profiling leading players such as Abbott Laboratories, Life Technology, Beckman Coulter, Novartis Diagnostics, Roche Diagnostics, and Bio-Rad Laboratories.
