The Global Microbiology Testing Market is expected to register 10.4% CAGR and is anticipated to reach USD 5409.1 6 Million by 2023. Microbiology testing services help to lower the potential damage risk by microbes and to ensure that the microbiology quality of the products is maintained. The microbial testing technique includes chemical, biological, biochemical, or molecular methods to quantify and identify microbes.

Technological advancements, rising cases of infectious diseases, surveillance programs for disease control, increasing stringency of standards, weakness of traditional laboratory techniques are the major drivers propelling market growth. However, erroneous results and high cost of reagents and instruments may constrain the growth of the market.

Market Dynamics

Technological advancements are expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, according to the data published by the National Centre for Health Statistics in 2017, there were around 9,272 cases of tuberculosis infectious disease. Additionally, rising cases of infectious diseases, surveillance programs for disease control, increasing stringency of standards, weakness of traditional laboratory techniques are likely to support market growth. On the other hand, erroneous results and high cost of reagents and instruments are anticipated to hamper the market growth.

Regional Analysis

The global microbiology testing market, based on region, is segmented into North Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.

North America is estimated to dominate the global microbiology testing market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the rapid adoption of advanced products and techniques. The European market for microbiology testing is expected to be the second-largest during the forecast period. Increasing innovation and changing laboratory practices is expected to boost the growth of the market in this region.

Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market due to increasing funding for R&D, developing healthcare infrastructure, growing awareness about microbiology testing, government initiatives to improve public health, and growing investments by major players. Moreover, in the region, South Korea accounted for a market share of 9.2% in 2016.

The market in the Middle East & Africa is expected to witness steady growth due to limited access to healthcare facilities, lack of knowledge of new microbiology testing techniques, less funding R&D, and limited availability to equipment.

Key Updates
