Bacterial & Viral Specimen Collection Market Worth $38.8 Billion By 2027

September 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Bacterial & Viral Specimen Collection Growth & Trends

The global bacterial and viral specimen collection market size is expected to reach USD 38.8 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 14.0%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The advent of high-throughput methods, such as next-generation sequencing, multiplex PCR, and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry, allows rapid and affordable microbial identification and thus facilitates robust diseases diagnosis. This is increasing the demand for bacterial and viral specimen collecting products, thereby driving the market revenue.

A rise in the prevalence of infectious diseases has encouraged diagnostic companies to offer rapid and easy-to-use tests, which propels the market growth. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were around 8,920 new Tuberculosis (TB) cases in the U.S. In regard to this, in July 2020, Cepheid, Inc. and the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics launched a rapid molecular test, Xpert MTB/XDR test for drug-resistance TB profiling. The test spurs the usage of specimen collection products.

Operating end-users such as clinical laboratories follow standardized protocols to streamline the usage of these products. This is because erroneous results while collecting samples affect patient care, hospital infection control, laboratory efficiency, and costs. The Texas Department of State Health Services is one of the regulatory agencies which is engaged in establishing guidelines for appropriate collecting and processing of samples, thus positively influencing the market growth.
