Global Bio-detection Market 2014-2018
Bio-detection has emerged as a solution to the public and governments. With an increase in bio-terrorism, the occurrence of illness and deaths is very frequent. This event is caused by the airborne chemicals or pathogens that are released by a terrorist or a group of people or even by an individual for a motive. These pathogens can be detected by a system called bio-detection, which signals the entry or the existence of a virus. The increasing attacks have brought a major concern to the public as well as governments. Attacks such as the 2001 Anthrax scare, the 2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), the 2004 Ricin letters, the 2009 H1N1, and the 2014 Ebola outbreaks have driven governments to increase their bio-surveillance budgets.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Bio-detection market to grow at a CAGR of 14.19 percent over the period 2013-2018.

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Bio-detection Market 2014-2018
TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Bio-detection Market: Agilent Technologies Inc., Cepheid Inc., Roche Diagnostics Corp. and Smiths Detection Inc.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 20/20 GeneSystems, 3M Microbiology, ADVNT Biotechnologies, ANP Technologies, BAS Biological Alarm Systems, BD Biosciences Immunocytometry Systems, Bertin Technologies, BioDETECT, BioSentinel Pharmaceuticals, Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Dycor Technologies, Environics, Evogen, General Dynamics Canada, GenPrime, Groton Biosystems, Haztech Systems, JMAR Technologies, New Horizons Diagnostics, Proengin, Response Biomedical and Tetracore.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “The increased need for bio-security is one of the major trends witnessed in the market. The increase in bio-terrorist attacks has increased the need for bio-security systems that secure people from pathogen attacks and reduce the risk of disease transmission to others.”
According to the report, the need for an early detection system for bio-terrorist attacks is one of the major drivers in the market. The existing bio-detection systems take a long time to detect and confirm the presence of a virus, and this can be fatal. Therefore, research is being conducted to introduce fast detection systems.
Further, the report states that difficulty in detecting the presence of pathogens is one of the major challenges in the market. The minute presence of pathogens in air, water, and food makes it difficult to detect, and hence the detectors show a negative result.Agilent Technologies, Cepheid, Roche Diagnostics, Smiths Group , 20/20 GeneSystems, 3M Microbiology, Advnt Biotechnologies, Alexeter Technologies, ANP Technologies, BAS – Biological Alarm Systems , BD Biosciences Immunocytometry Systems, Bertin Technologies,Biodefense, BioDETECT, BioSentinel Pharmaceuticals, BioTraces, BioVeris, Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Dycor Technologies, Environics, Evogen, General Dynamics Canada, GenPrime, Groton Biosystems, Haztech Systems, JMAR Technologies, New HorizonsDiagnostics, Proengin, Response Biomedical, Tetracore
