The global spread of covid-19 and the emerging cases of sepsis among covid-19 patients are likely to increase the demand for rapid diagnosis, accelerating the utilization of instruments, reagents, & assay kits for detection of sepsis. Lockdowns resulting from the pandemic caused people to delay undergoing health checkups, affecting the number of tests performed and reagent sales. 


[236 Pages Report] The global sepsis diagnostics market size is expected to reach USD 771 million by 2026 from USD 503 million in 2021, at a CAGR of 8.9%. The demand for sepsis diagnostic products is expected to grow mainly due to factors such as the increasing public-private funding for sepsis diagnostic research activities, the growing burden of infectious diseases, the rising number of sepsis incidences, and growing government initiatives for creating sepsis awareness. 


Sepsis is a very difficult condition to diagnose and the risk of mortality increases by 7.6% with a delay of even 1 minute in antibiotic administration in septic shock patients with hypertension. Thus, increasing the need for the rapid diagnosis of sepsis to reduce the delay of antibiotic therapy among patients with sepsis.  



Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that needs to be diagnosed and treated at the earliest with the help of skilled healthcare professionals. The shortage of skilled professionals is a major concern worldwide; only 50% of patients with severe sepsis transported by the EMS system have a paramedic.

The sepsis diagnostics market, by technology, the market is segmented into bacterial sepsis, viral sepsis, fungal sepsis, and other pathogen. The bacterial sepsis segment accounted for the largest share of market during the forecast period. This share can be attributed to the rise in the bacterial sepsis cases, the increasing number of surgical procedures, and the rising prevalence of HAIs. 


The hospitals and specialty clinics accounted for the largest share of the sepsis diagnostics industry. The larger share of this segment can be attributed to the high prevalence of sepsis coupled with a large number of fatalities caused by the illness, increasing number of patients hospitalized with sepsis, and in-house hospital laboratories perform a large number of blood culture tests to identify the blood stream infections (BSIs caused by bacteria, fungi/yeast, or viruses).
