Microbiological Testing of Water Market by Pathogen (Bacteria, Protozoa, Viruses), Water Type (Drinking & Bottled Water, Industrial Water), Type (Instruments, Test Kits & Reagents), Industry, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
The microbiological testing of water market is projected to reach USD 1.59 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2017 to 2022. The market is driven by factors such as the requirement of advanced equipment with less turnaround time and active involvement & funding by government authorities for the development of advanced technology for microbial water quality analysis. Factors such as limited market penetration for microbial water testing & analysis instruments in non-industrial applications and reluctance of municipal bodies & civic societies to adopt new technologies are restraining the market.
“Salmonella segment dominated the market with the highest number of tests in 2016”
The salmonella microbial water testing segment accounted for the largest market share among the different pathogen types for microbial water testing, in 2016. Children under the age of five and old age people with a weak immune system are more prone to salmonellosis. In the fatality cases, the infection may spread from intestine to blood stream. The severity of the infection is generating demand for Salmonella water testing, which is, in turn, driving the market for Salmonella water testing solutions.
“Instruments type segment led the market with the largest share in 2016”
The various instruments used for microbial water testing are chromatography instruments, PCR instruments, immunoassays, and spectroscopy instruments. PCR is a widely used molecular technique that uses DNA as the basis for analysis of microbial contaminants, providing precise results on testing. The technology amplifies fragments of DNA extracted from the microorganisms in water samples to accurately identify the DNA of each species, resulting in enabled cross-checking of the qualitative and quantitative results of the pathogens present.
“Pharmaceutical industry dominated the market in 2016”
The pharmaceutical industry is associated with the crucial application of drug development. Microbiological water testing for the pharmaceutical industry requires potentially advanced equipment. This market is driven by the need for new innovative pharmaceutical solutions and GMP compliance for microbial water quality analysis by pharmaceutical companies.
“China contributed to the highest market share in the Asia-Pacific region in 2016”
The North American region dominated the microbiological testing of water market in 2016, whereas the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high amount of industrial development in countries such as Japan and China is also a contributing factor for the growth of this market in Asia-Pacific.
