Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Pneumonia Testing Market size is anticipated to reach USD 3 billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of pneumonia testing was over USD 608 million. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising incidence of pneumonia among the global population. Pneumonia caused 745,280 children to die in 2019, accounting for 14.5% of all pediatric fatalities.

A severe respiratory infection that damages the lungs is termed pneumonia. It is the leading infectious cause of child mortality globally. The little sacs in the lungs called alveoli are stuffed with pus and fluid, when someone with pneumonia inhales, which makes breathing difficult and reduces oxygen intake. Pneumonia can be averted in children, treated with affordable, low-tech medicine, and prevented with streamlined treatments. In 2020, there were 47,601 pneumonia-related fatalities in the U.S. which is equivalent to 14.4 mortalities for every 100,000 people.

Pneumonia Testing Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Rising Cases of COVID-19 – Some people with COVID-19 have pneumonia in both lungs. The condition associated with COVID-19 was formerly known as new-corona virus-associated pneumonia (NCIP). The coronavirus disease 2019 was dubbed COVID-19 by the World Health Organization (WHO). Around the world, there have been 8,385,450 reported cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pneumonia in 2020, with 450,690 fatalities.
  • Increasing Incidence of Hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) – HAP refers to pneumonia that appears more than 48 hours after being admitted to the hospital. Each year, hospitals in the U.S. witness up to 350,000 HAP events.
  • Growing Geriatric Population – Aged individuals are more inclined to have long-term medical issues including heart disease or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which can raise the risk of pneumonia. By 2050, the global population over 60 is predicted to be close to 23%, and from 2020 to 2050, the number of people 80 or older is projected to treble, reaching 430 million.
  • Advancement of POCT and Nucleic Acid Detection tests – The development of POCT (point of care test) and improved nucleic acid detection tests in pneumonia testing systems is another factor contributing to the market’s expansion. POCT is desirable owing to its ease of use, increased user approachability, earlier detection, and equivalent accuracy. Thus, POCT helps to achieve early diagnosis and treatment of epidemics as well as daily epidemic control.  For instance, Abbot itself provides more than 1.5 billion POCT devices globally each year.


  • Widespread Utilization of X-ray to Detect Pneumonia
  • High Cost of the Testing Devices
  • High Preference of Utilizing Traditional Approach to Identify Pneumonia-Causing Pathogens
