The Global Clostridium Difficile Diagnostic and Treatment Market was valued at USD 2,571.22 million in 2021 and it is expected to reach USD 5,663.87 million by 2028, with a CAGR of 11.9% during the forecast period.
Global Clostridium Difficile Diagnostic and Treatment Market: Global Size, Trends, Competitive, Historical & Forecast Analysis, 2022 – 2029. Increased prevalence of Clostridium difficile infection, robust product pipeline of different therapies for the treatment, and growing R & D activities for effective treatments are anticipated to drive the growth of Global Clostridium Difficile Diagnostic and Treatment Market.
Clostridium difficile is caused by clostridium difficile bacteria and it is the most common infection among older adults. More than 80% of C. difficile deaths occur in people older than 65 or more. Clostridium difficile colitis results from disruption of normal, healthy bacteria in the colon, often as a result of antibiotics. Clostridium difficile is caused by clostridium difficile bacteria which is common infection among older adults. Growing prevalence of healthcare-associated infections has been one of the major drivers of the global clostridium difficile diagnostics and treatment market. In 2011 C. difficile was estimated to cause about half a million infections among adults in United States due to which ~29,000 people died within 30 days of the initial diagnosis. During the study of Global Clostridium Difficile Diagnostics and Treatment market, we have considered clostridium difficile diagnostics and treatment product type and test type to analyze the market.
Clostridium difficile infection caused due to the spore-forming bacterium Clostridium difficile. Its major symptoms include; fever, watery diarrhea, nausea, and pain in stomach. Difficile is a bacterium that can cause symptoms ranging from diarrhea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon. Generally, clostridium difficile infection occurs during antibiotic treatment or can be caused due to healthcare associated infection with clinical manifestation ranging from asymptomatic infection to watery diarrhea. This infection can be diagnosed by enzyme immunoassays for toxins or Clostridium difficile glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) and nucleic acid amplification tests for Clostridium difficile toxin genes or endoscopy. Various drugs such as metronidazole, fidoxamycin and vancomycin are only available for the treatment of Clostridium difficile infection. In case of any severe pain or toxic megacolon in abdominal wall, patients undergo surgery for removal of infected portion.
The COVID-19 has shown a decline impact on the growth of the global Clostridium Difficile Diagnostic and Treatment Market owing to the increased burden on the healthcare sector globally. It has disturbed the supply chain network of the market. Thus, due to all these factors, Covid-19 has limited the market growth.
Some major key players for Global Clostridium Difficile Diagnostic and Treatment report cover prominent players like
Global clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market is segmented on the basis of product type, test, distribution channel and region & country level. Based upon product type, global clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market is classified into metronidazole, vancomycin, fidaxomicin and bezlotoxumab and others. Based upon test type, the market is divided into real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), nucleic amplification tests (NAAT), enzyme immunoassays and others. Based on distribution channel, the global clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market is classified into hospitals & clinics, diagnostic laboratories and pharmacies.
The major factor driving the growth of global clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment is increased prevalence of clostridium difficile infection. In US each year three million new cases of C difficile colitis occur; as many as 10% of patients hospitalized for at least 2 days are affected. In some case series suggest that C difficile colitis has become more common and potentially more pathogenic. An increased incidence of C difficile colitis was reported in hospitalized patients in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Portland, Oregon. Similarly, population-based data from Quebec revealed an increased incidence of C difficile colitis and an increasing associated mortality rate. In addition, growing number of research and development activities for effective treatments increasing the growth of global clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market. Furthermore, robust product pipeline of different therapies for the treatment of clostridium difficile is also fostering the growth of global clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market.
However, high cost of treatment and lack of awareness may hamper the market growth. In spite of that, PCR provides a rapid and sensitive screen for the determination of clonal relationships among C. difficile strains can offer more opportunities for the further growth of the global clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market.
On the basis of region, the clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market within the forecast period attributed to the technologically updated systems, higher consumption of junk food and rising cases of hospital acquired infection in this region. Europe is projected to capture the second largest share of clostridium difficile diagnostic and treatment market due to the new investments in processing capacity.
Researchers Identified Starting Point for Designing Drugs that Cure Clostridium difficile
On January 2nd, 2020; a published paper in PNAS, details a research breakthrough that provides a promising starting point for scientists to create drugs that can cure Clostridium difficile (C. diff). Through investigating a type of toxin released by the most dangerous strains of C. diff, researchers now have a map for developing drugs that had block the toxin and prevent the bacteria from entering human cells. A combination of cryogenic electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance, and small angle X-ray scattering helps to observe and identify the C. diff toxin's structure and mode of action. Believing that it was a binary toxin needing two components to function, researchers thought it could be similar to anthrax toxin, and sought to characterize what made the C. diff toxin different from anthrax.
