Blood Culture Tests Market Size, Share & Forecast | USD 10,009.0 million by 2030

Blood Culture Tests Market by Product (Consumables, Instruments, and Software and Services), by Method (Conventional and Automated), by Application (Bacterial, Fungal, and Others), by Region – Global Share and Forecast to 2030


According to the Market Statsville Group (MSG), the global blood culture tests market size was valued at USD 4,913.9 million in 2021 and is estimated to reach USD 10,009.0 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 9.3% from 2022 to 2030. The growth of the global blood culture tests market is majorly driven by a rise in the geriatric population, an alarming increase in the prevalence of infectious diseases, sepsis, and bloodstream infection (BSIs), and a surge in demand for diagnostic techniques. For instance, as per the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention, about 250,000 bloodstream infection cases occur yearly, and among them, 80,000 patients suffer from catheter-related bloodstream infection.

As per statistics provided by the UN Population around 30 million people around the globe were detected with bloodstream infections across the globe. Bloodstream infection ranges from 11% to 28% in the Eastern African region. It has been observed in a report of the WHO that 85% of the deaths from sepsis occur in low- and middle-income countries. Hence, an increase in the prevalence of BSIs and a rise in the geriatric population are expected to propel the demand for blood culture tests, which, in turn, augments the market growth. Moreover, blood culture tests play an important role in the global healthcare sector.
