Clinical Microbiology Market Size Worth $16.7 Billion By 2025

June 2018 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Clinical Microbiology Market Growth & Trends

The global clinical microbiology market size is expected to reach USD 16.7 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is projected to expand at a CAGR of 6.7% over the forecast period. Clinical microbiology depends on technical and skilled workforce to process and interpret results of clinical specimens. Clinical staff have been complaining about poor Turnaround Time (TAT) of tests. However, with technological advancements, a number of laboratory instruments and equipment are being replaced with automated devices to minimize human error and dependency on skilled workforce.

In addition, automation has benefits such as reduced TAT and use of labor and lab space, thereby reducing overall cost associated with these tests. Manufacturers are focusing on introduction of automatic specimen processing, plate reading, and organism identification. GE Healthcare, PerkinElmer, and Thermo Fisher are some of the key players offering automated systems in the diagnostics industry.

Rising cases of hospital-acquired infections (HAI) is also fueling demand for clinical microbiology for diagnosis and monitoring. As high-income countries are stepping up their pursuit of countering hospital-acquired infections, middle- and low-income countries are recognizing the threat. Introduction of automated systems and innovative designs is expected to intensify market competition and change market dynamics over the forecast period.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is particularly active in countries such as Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Algeria, and Senegal, where occurrence of HAIs ranged between 2.5% and 14.8%. This has led to increased demand for HAI diagnostics in these countries. Countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Bhutan are also actively participating in HAI awareness programs. India and China are projected to be the main countries driving demand for HAI diagnostics instruments and tests in future.
