Enteric Disease Testing Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast (2012 - 2018)

Enteric diseases are diseases of the gastrointestinal tract caused by bacterial and viral infections. The microorganisms responsible for these infections include Escherichia coli, Vibrio cholerae and a few species of Salmonella and Shigella. Enteric diseases are characterized by symptoms ranging from mild infections such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort to the life-threatening systemic infections such as diarrhea and anorexia.

With regards to global public health scenario, enteric diseases are one of the most prevalent infections being the top cause of infectious morbidity and the second top most cause of infectious mortality. According to the World Health Organization, diarrheal diseases are the second most common infectious diseases in the world accounting for approximately 15% to 34% of the total deaths in the world. According to UNICEF, diarrhea is responsible for over 1.3 million deaths per year among children under five years of age.  Annually, around 4 to 6 million deaths are observed due to various enteric infections. Enteric diseases are mostly prevalent in the children, elderly people and people with weak immunity systems.

Various improved technologies such as high-performance reagents and vaccines are available and are also being developed at present for diagnostics and treatment of enteric infections, respectively. Some of the techniques used to diagnose intestinal infections include E. coli test, monoclonal antibodies testing and immunoassays. These techniques help to detect the presence of disease causing microorganisms and are commercially available in the form of kits. The rising incidence of these diseases along with increasing global population, availability of the treatment technologies and increasing health awareness are likely to prove as driving factors for enteric diseases diagnostics market.

More than 85% of the total cases of the enteric infections are discovered in Asia, followed by North America and Europe. There are numerous opportunities for the development of diagnostic techniques and vaccines for the treatment of enteric infections in the developing countries owing to the rising disposable income of people and increased healthcare expenditure.

Some of the major players involved in the manufacturing of diagnostics for enteric diseases are Abbott Laboratories, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Becton Dickinson and Company, Novartis Diagnostics, Life Technologies Corporation, and Roche Ltd.
