Infectious diseases caused by various micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Infectious diseases are transmitted from person to person through either indirect or direct contact. Infectious diseases such as bacterial infections, fungal infections, and viral infections such as respiratory diseases, HPV, HIV, measles, malaria, dengue, cholera, and hepatitis B and C are gradually spreading worldwide. Infectious disease diagnostics are the procedures for identification and characterization of the causative agent of an infectious disease with the aid of diagnostic tools. These diagnostics provide crucial information for making right medical decisions. Infectious disease diagnostics can be based solely on clinical presentation or more rigorous diagnostic tests, such as microscopy, biochemical screens, culturing of an infectious agent, and molecular methods.

The important factors that are helping the infectious disease diagnostics market grow are increase in number of incidences of malaria, dengue, HIV, demand of early and better diagnosis, increase in government funding for the establishment of diagnostic centers and technological advancements in the diagnostic procedures are expected to boost the infectious disease diagnostic market. In addition to this changing demographics, increase in R & D activities and advances in healthcare sectors is also helping the market of infectious disease diagnostics grow. However, high cost for the diagnostic procedures, lack of awareness about the innovative diagnostic procedures, lack of skilled professionals to perform diagnostic tests, and lack of reimbursement policies for several diagnostic test might hamper the infectious disease diagnostics market growth.
