Key Market Trends

Rising Incidence of Pneumonia and Legionella-related illnesses

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates, US witnessed 6238 cases of Legionnaires disease in 2017. While this incidence number is relatively low, it is still an increment of 13.6% in number of cases when compared to 2016 estimates. Legionnaires disease is not contagious but the disease can be contracted by contaminated water droplets and mist. Similar to US, Legionnaires disease in EU countries is an uncommon and sporadic respiratory infection with low notification rates. According to European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) the overall notification rate for Legionnaires disease increased significantly over the 2011-2015 period. France, Germany, Italy and Spain accounted for 69% of all the notified cases in 2015. Despite the low overall number of cases of Legionnaires disease incidence, the high growth rate of its prevalence globally, is contributing to the growth of the global Legionella testing market. There has been a significant increase in the prevalence of the Legionnaires disease globally in the past 5 years. Additionally the global prevalence of Pneumonia and related pulmonary illness is also on the rise primarily due to lifestyle mediated factors and increasing geriatric population.

Issues in Sensitivity of Diagnostic Tests

The sensitivity of diagnostic tests involved in Legionella testing, varies depending on the quality and timing of clinical specimen collection. Sensitivity is also dependent on the technical skill of the laboratory worker performing the test. Culture based tests and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are subject to highest sensitivity variation while urinary antigen test provides maximum sensitivity without much human intervention. The culture preparation for Legionella testing requires both specific agar media and specialized laboratory training, both of which is difficult to maintain in clinical setting as the required reagent is not readily available in standard diagnostic laboratories and also because there is a dearth of laboratory technicians, specifically for handling samples containing respiratory fluids and Legionella cultures. Lack of sensitivity in diagnostic tests translates to lower detection rates and is a major restraint to the growth of the global Legionella testing market. Other factor which is inhibiting market growth includes insufficient disposable income in developing and underdeveloped nations.

Urinary Antigen Test (UAT) is the Leading Category of Diagnostic Test

By type of test, the global Legionella testing market is dominated by UAT, which holds the largest market share among all variants of diagnostic test for Legionella testing. UAT is a diagnostic tool which provides rapid outcomes, with usually same day results. Additionally, UAT is not resource specific and technically intensive like culture based tests. Since UAT does not require respiratory fluid samples, issues of sensitivity are also overcome. Overall, UAT remains the test for choice for clinicians and diagnostic experts primarily because of ease of handling and rapid testing advantage.
There is currently limited use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based tests and other nucleic acid based tests in the global Legionella market. However, over the forecast period this test category is expected to grow significantly because it provides differential advantage like detection of entire serogroups associated of Legionella and rapid testing. Its widespread use in the current market is limited due to high cost of PCR techniques.
