Driver:  Rapid increase of pneumonia and legionella-related illnesses

According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) (May 2022), Legionnaires’ disease remains an uncommon and mainly sporadic respiratory infection with an overall notification rate of 1.9 cases per 100,000 population for the EU/EEA in 2020. France, Germany, Italy, and Spain accounted for 72% of all notified cases. In addition, according to the US CDC (March 2022), the age-standardized average incidence was 0.48 cases/100,000 population during 1992–2002 compared with 2.71/100,000 in 2018.

Opportunity: Legal requirements for water testing

The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) (October 2021) sets legal limits on over 90 contaminants in the US for drinking water. The legal limit for a contaminant reflects the level that protects human health and that water systems can achieve using the best available technology. EPA rules also set water-testing schedules and methods that water systems must follow. In addition, the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) allows individual states to set and enforce their drinking water standards if the standards are at least as stringent as EPA’s national standards.

Restraint: Lack of reimbursement policies

The major factor restraining the growth of the legionella testing market are inadequate reimbursements. According to MedPAC (Medicare Payment Advisory Commission), medical testing has seen a 40% decline in reimbursement over the last 40 years. This decline and additional budgetary concerns among healthcare systems will be a major obstacle to implementing novel diagnostic techniques in clinical laboratories.

Challenge: Difficulties in detection

The most common cause of Legionnaire’s disease is Legionella pneumophilia serogroup 1, but it can quickly and easily be identified via the urine antigen test. Legionnaire’s disease can also go undetected once a patient is diagnosed with pneumonia. Best practices dictate that all hospital-acquired pneumonia patients be tested for Legionella in hopes of detecting and preventing a possible outbreak.

The legionella testing market is moderately consolidated. The top players— Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (US), Merck KGaA (Germany), Becton, Dickinson, and Company (US), Roche Diagnostics (Switzerland), and Pall Corporation (Danaher) (US)-in the legionella testing market accounted for a combined majority market share in 2021. There is a high degree of competition among the market players. Only major companies can afford high-capital investments as well as the high cost of R&D and manufacturing. This will prevent new entrants from entering this market.

“In 2021, PCR segment accounted for the largest share of the legionella testing market, by test type.”

The legionella testing market is segmented into culture methods, urinary antigen tests, direct fluorescent antibody tests, and PCR. The PCR accounted for the largest share of the legionella testing market in 2021, mainly due to its versatility, speed and simplicity.

In 2021, water testing segment accounted for the largest share in the market, by application.

The legionella testing market has been segmented into water testing, IVD testing, and other applications. In 2021, the water testing segment accounted for the largest share of the legionella testing market. Factor such as the changes in lifestyle around the globe and rising elderly population is driving the growth of the market.

“In 2021, water & other industries segment accounted for the largest share in the market, by end user.”

The legionella testing market has been segmented into hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, water & other industries, and other end users. In 2021, the water & other industries segment accounted for the largest share of the legionella testing market. The strict water treatment regulations, increasing population and urbanization, and the increased need for new water resources is driving the growth of this segment.

“North America is the largest regional market for legionella testing.”

The global legionella testing market is segmented into five major regions—North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. In 2021, North America accounted for the largest share of the legionella testing market. The North American legionella testing market growth can be attributed to the growing elderly population coupled with rising legionella-related illnesses.

Some of the prominent players in the Legionella Testing Market include:

Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (US), Merck KGaA (Germany), Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (US), IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. (US), bioMérieux S.A. (France), Becton, Dickinson, and Company (US), Alere, Inc.
