Global Burkholderia Infections Market: Drivers

High incidence of lung disorders is expected to boost growth of the global Burkholderia infections market over the forecast period. For instance, according to British Lung Foundation, in 2011, around 1.2 million people are suffering from COPD, with an increase of 27% in number of cases in the last decade in the U.K. According to the U.S. Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Europe accounted for the highest number of reported cases of cystic fibrosis in 2012.

Increasing government and private organization initiatives for prevention and treatment of Burkholderia infection are also expected to boost growth of the global Burkholderia infections market. For instance, in 2005, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notified several states cluster of pneumonia and other infection caused by B. cepacia associated with contaminated mouthwash. In February 2019, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded a US$ 3.34 million grant to researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine for R&D of a technique for sensitizing Burkholderia multivorans, a common pathogen found in patients with lung diseases, to antibiotics. Moreover, in August 2019, the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) announced a 2-year grant of up to US$ 20.7 million to VenatoRx Pharmaceuticals, who will then collaborate with BARDA’s Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to test the efficacy of VNRX-5133 compound in treating pathogens, specifically, melioidosis-causing bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei.

Moreover, increasing cases of contaminated medicines and medical devices is also expected to contribute to growth of the market. For instance, in October 2016, Nurse Assist Inc. recalled its normal saline flush IV syringes due to Burkholderia Cepacia bloodstream infection. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified this as Class I recall, one of the most serious types of recall which may cause serious injuries or death. In 2004, Burkholderia Cepacia was linked to nosocomial infection among Intensive Care Unit patient and was associated with exposure to sublingual probes.
