San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
Microbiology is one of the major segments of the diagnostic testing market. Rapid pathogen identification and analysis is gaining importance due to the increase in outbreak of new diseases caused by mutant microorganisms. Rapid and reliable detection of pathogenic bacteria is critical in preventing disease progression and spread. As a result, the growing need to speed up microbiological testing is driving demand for automated and rapid microbiological tests. Another key factor driving growth in the market is rising healthcare expenditure and the ensuing need to enhance the accuracy of medical treatment decisions. Increased use of automated and rapid microbiological tests in the healthcare system will help provide quicker disease management, enable administration of appropriate antimicrobial therapy, and reduce morbidity and mortality rates while simultaneously lowering associated costs. Stringent regulations are additionally helping drive the development of innovative test solutions by providing a clear blueprint for testing requirements, thus catalyzing improvements in production processes.
The boom in demand for automated microbiological tests has been fuelled by the recent advances in DNA probes, monoclonal antibodies, biochips, immunoassays, specimen collection devices, new detection technologies, computers and automation that have permitted the development of versatile and reliable diagnostics. Advanced microbiological procedures not only promise to provide results with the same accuracy as that of the conventional tests, but also significantly enhance sensitivity and specificity of the procedure. With increasing competition, manufacturers are focusing on the development of new, innovative, affordable and easy-to-use tests. Strong growth in the global point-of-care market is additionally driving market opportunities for the use of automated and rapid microbiological tests.
As stated by the new market research report on Automated and Rapid Microbiological Tests, the United States represents the single largest market worldwide. Growth in the country is supported by the growing emphasis on early diagnosis and treatment against a backdrop of rising incidence of infectious diseases. Asia-Pacific is forecast to spearhead global growth with a CAGR of 7.9% over the analysis period. Aging population, economic prosperity, rising healthcare awareness, and increasing healthcare spending by an expanding base of middle class population are factors propelling growth in the region. Automated Identification and Susceptibility Systems represents the largest market segment, while GC/Chlamydia Rapid Tests ranks as the fastest growing segment.
