Bacillus Anthracis Infections Market Segmentation Analysis- By Anthrax Type

Bacillus Anthracis Infections Market based on anthrax type can be further segmented into Cutaneous Anthrax, Inhalation Anthrax, Gastrointestinal Anthrax, and Injection Anthrax. The cutaneous Anthrax segment held a dominant market share in the year 2021. Cutaneous Anthrax disease is the most common type of anthrax and causes more than 80% of total cases. Also, the trend of consuming raw and less processed meat increases the chances of disease transmission from gastrointestinal routes. Cutaneous anthrax is caused by a cut or wound which has a higher chance of infection during handling an infected animal or contaminated animal product. Such direct contact of infections by anthrax disease creates a need to better treatment and measures to cure such infections, such factors help to drive Bacillus Anthracis Infections Market.

However, Inhalation anthrax is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR rate of 8.2% over the forecast period. The growth can be due to the easy transmission of anthrax spores through the air medium. People who work at the wool mill, slaughterhouse, and tanneries have high chances of infection by inhalation of anthrax. Australia is the largest producer of wool and produces 345 million kilos of wool every year and the country has high chances of inhalation anthrax infections. Inhalation anthrax can be life-threatening anthrax disease without medication and with proper medicine chances of survival can come close to 55%. Owing to such a high mortality rate, the segment of inhalation anthrax helps to grow Bacillus Anthrax Infections Market over the forecast period 2022-2027.

Bacillus Anthracis Infections Market Segmentation Analysis- By Treatment

Bacillus Anthracis Infections Market based on end-use can be further segmented into Hospitals, Commercial or Private Laboratories, Public Health Laboratories, and Others. The Hospital segment held a dominant market share in the year 2021. This is owing to the use of improved diagnostic technology over time in hospitals. Anthrax is diagnosed by chest X-ray, and a CT scan shows pleural effusion in patients with inhalation anthrax. In many hospitals, there is an advanced radiology lab to perform such tests, and some prefer to tie up with outside clinical laboratories for such tests on a contract basis. In such clinical laboratories, the diagnosis of anthracis is possible owing to an advanced technique like an x-ray or CT scan for anthracis diagnostics which fuels market growth of the segment.

However, Commercial or Private laboratories are estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR rate of 8.8% over the forecast period 2022-2027. Owing to the increasing number of private diagnostic laboratories across the globe and reliable techniques used for diagnostic specific lab tests using fecal specimens. According to National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, there is a total of 17025 testing laboratories accredited in accordance with ISO standard 15189:2012 in 2022, and 15189 ISO-certified medical laboratories in India. Such numbers of registered laboratories for diagnosis to grow the Bacillus Anthracis Infections Market over the forecast period.
