The report “Rapid Microbiology Testing Market by Method (Growth, Viability), Product (Automated Microbial Identification & AST System, PCR, Reagent), Application (Clinical Diagnosis, Environmental), End User (Labs, Hospitals, Industry) – Global Forecast”, is expected to reach USD 5.09 billion by 2023 from USD 3.45 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 8.1%.
Growth Driver- Technological advancements;
Over the years, there has been a gradual shift from conventional microbiology testing toward rapid testing methods. This shift has been driven by the introduction of newer and faster technologies to avert the need for the biological amplification of bacteria for detection. Rapid advancements in the field of microbial testing help to overcome limitations such as long procedural times and long exposure to pathogenic strains with conventional testing methods. Continuous technological advancements in microbiology testing, in terms of efficacy, efficiency, accuracy, faster results, and improved functionality, are generating increased interest among clinical laboratories, hospitals, academic institutes, research laboratories, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
These tests provide a cost-effective alternative for microbial identification by reducing the per procedure consumable cost. Clinical diagnostics, food and beverage testing, and environmental applications use rapid technologies in microbial identification to identify microbes from different samples.
