Insights on market segments
Antibiotic prophylaxis products generated the largest revenue in the surgical site infection market in 2017. In most cases, patients’ sensitivity to certain drugs creates the need for specific antibiotics, which, in turn, adds to the treatment cost. Owing to this factor, antibiotic prophylaxis products continue to be in high demand in the market. However, the fastest growth in the market during the forecast period is expected from the antiseptic and disinfectant product category, with a CAGR of 7.4%.
Among all phases, the demand for products for the intraoperative phase is expected to exhibit the fastest growth in the surgical site infection market, at a CAGR of 6.6%, during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the wide usage of SSI preventive products during the intraoperative phase, as the chances of contamination to open wounds are the highest during this phase. Also, due to this reason, healthcare facilities are increasingly complying with the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines that suggest measures to prevent infections.
