Bioburden Testing Market – Highlights
The Bioburden Testing Market is expected to register a CAGR of Approx. 9.15% during the forecast period of 2018–2023 with an estimated market value of USD 455 million. Bioburden testing refers to an estimation of microbial load on a medical instrument, raw material, packaged goods among others. Several factors such as rising medical spending, increasing food safety concerns and growing product recalls due to microbial contamination are projected to drive the growth of the market. On the other hand, high costs of microbial enumeration instruments and complex and time-consuming regulatory standards in some economies may curb the market growth during the assessment period. Moreover, test reports and certificates tend to be different from one country to another which hampers international trade. Therefore, in December 2017, International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published a new edition of ISO/IEC 17025 standard. This standard is an international reference for laboratories carrying out calibration and testing activities around the world. ISO/IEC 17025 helps facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies by creating widespread acceptance of results between countries.
The global bioburden testing market is currently dominated by many market players. The key players in the market are involved in new product launches and strategic collaborations to strengthen its market position. For instance, in October 2018, Becton, Dickinson and Company, a leading global medical technology company, announced the availability of the BD MAX MDR-TB (multi-drug resistant tuberculosis) panel in Europe.
Some of the key players in the global bioburden testing market are WuXi AppTec, Charles River, SGS SA, Merck KGaA, NORTH AMERICAN SCIENCE ASSOCIATES INC., Becton, Dickinson, and Company, Nelson Laboratories, LLC, Pacific Biolabs, ATS Laboratories, Inc., and Dynatec Labs.
The market in the Americas is expected to dominate the global bioburden testing market during the forecast period owing to the presence of well-established healthcare system, increasing healthcare expenditure, and favorable reimbursement scenario. The European market is expected to be the second-largest due to availability of funds for research from public and private sources. Moreover, the market in Asia-Pacific is predicted to be the fastest-growing during the assessment period owing to growing disposable income, and continuously developing economies. The market in the Middle East & Africa is likely to account for the smallest share of the global bioburden testing market. The market growth in this region can be attributed to the growing government initiatives.
