The Worldwide Microbiology Market (Traditional Microbiology, Microbiology/Infectious Disease Immunoassays, Molecular Microbiology, Mass Spectrometry in Microbiology)

The Worldwide Microbiology Market (Traditional Microbiology, Microbiology/Infectious Disease Immunoassays, Molecular Microbiology, Mass Spectrometry in Microbiology)

Microbiology has always been a major segment of the diagnostic market because the burden of infectious diseases is high. This important field is attracting even more attention today as the because of the large and growing problem of antibiotic resistance. The Worldwide Microbiology Market provides current market (2017) and market projections (to 2022) by segment (traditional microbiology, microbiology/infectious disease immunoassays, molecular microbiology, mass spectrometry in microbiology, total microbiology market), by pathogen/disease (healthcare-acquired infections / antimicrobial resistance, STDs / women's health, hepatitis, HIV, respiratory tract infections, others), and by geographic region (North America, Western Europe, Japan, China, India, Latin America (incl. Mexico), rest of the world).

The report also looks at the global microbiology/infectious disease immunoassay 2017-2022 market by segment (laboratory-based immunoassays, rapid/point-of-care immunoassays, total microbiology/infectious disease immunoassay market), by geographic region (North America, Western Europe, Japan, China, India, Latin America (incl. Mexico), rest of the world), and by pathogen/disease indication (hepatitis, HIV, STDs, TORCH, respiratory, sepsis, parasitology, mycology, others).

There is a need for rapid tests that can quickly identify a microbial pathogen, and (if the pathogen is a bacteria) identify what antibiotic will be effective in treating the infection – all before a physician makes the treatment decision. This ideal test does not yet exist, but considerable advances are occurring in fields such as molecular microbiology and mass spectrometry in the microbiology laboratory. In addition, new technologies and platforms are being developed by companies that are working towards development of this much needed test. Beckman Coulter, Becton Dickinson, bioMérieux, and Thermo Fisher Scientific are among the market companies profiled in the report.91
