The Global microbiology market is growing due to increase in prevalence of pathogenic diseases, growth in discovery of mutating and adapting bacterium, and the growing need for speedy microbiological testing methods.
In 2013, the microbiology testing market accounted for 5% in the global IVD market and contributed $3556.7 million in 2013 to the IVD market, and is estimated to reach $4737.2 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2013 to 2018.
The clinical microbiology laboratory has a whole array of diagnostics instruments used for serology, virus culture, and blood culture. This method is used for the detection of influenza viruses as well as a number of other diseases. Clinical microbiology testing is indispensable for identifying bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections as well as for preventing epidemics. It also helps in the clinical management of patients. The rapid diagnostic testing market is the most sought after in the microbiology industry as it provides results in less than 30 minutes. Thus, a faster turnaround time (TAT) and immediate results are the major factors that will drive the microbiology market.
There has been an increase in the number of infectious diseases across the globe. The factors such as the rise in incidence of HIV and tuberculosis as well as sexually transmitted diseases in developing countries along with the rise in respiratory diseases like influenza in developed countries like Europe and America will drive the microbiology market.
Technological advances, like automated instruments for identification of pathogens in laboratories, have been of immense help to microbiologists. Automation has helped to enhance key laboratory performance attributes like consistency, quality, and a slower total turnaround time. Thus, automation is the new trend in the microbiology field. However, it will take time to pick-up as it requires extensive training of laboratory personnel. These machines are helping medical practitioners receive accurate data and determine the precise course of treatment without spending too much time.
Similarly, factors like the consolidation of diagnostic laboratory chains and the increase in public awareness are driving the growth of the market. The emerging countries are expected to outperform the U.S. and European countries. This is mainly due to the increase in the major hospital chains opening new centers in major cities as well as an increase in the government expenditure.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has estimated that healthcare spending in the U.S. is expected to grow from $2.7 trillion in 2011 to about $4.6 trillion in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.8% for the same period. Similarly, in emerging countries, awareness and an increasing middle-class population, with a more disposable income to spend on healthcare, will be a driving force for the growth of this market.
