Emphasis on Digitization of Laboratories Driving Bioburden Testing Market Growth: Fact.MR

Increasing shift towards technologically advanced methods to replace manual sample analysis and improve lab productivity are creating growth opportunities in the market.

Fact.MR – A Market Research and Competitive Intelligence Provider: The global bioburden testing market is anticipated to record a positive growth during the forecast year 2021-2031. According to a recent study by Fact.MR, the market will showcase growth due to the need for faster and accurate bioburden testing systems.

As per a medical journal published in the US National Library of Medicine - National Institutes of Health, conventional culture-based microbiology methods have a longer turnaround time and are prone to erroneous results, causing inefficiencies in the workflow.

The time lag associated with these testing methods have generated a demand for faster, safer and more accurate bioburden testing systems, providing a lucrative ground for players operating in the bioburden testing market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to the market as the shortage of supplies restricted daily laboratory processes, causing a significant dip in the overall capacity of testing procedures. However, as the world is gradually shifting to pre-pandemic situation, the market is expected to witness a healthy growth, finds Fact.MR in this study.

North America will continue to dominate the bioburden testing market during the forecast period. According to Savills Research, companies operating in the U.S. accounted for approximately 63% of life science capital raising.

With the U.S. forecast to continue dominating life science corporate investment volume, the demand for bioburden testing will surge at a healthy pace in North America.

“Increasing product and device recalls due to contamination and rapid shift towards digitization will fuel demand for bioburden testing to minimize complications witnessed by laboratory experts,” says the Fact.MR analyst.

PCR and Real-time PCR Molecular Diagnostics Market- The use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) molecular diagnostics has increased dramatically in recent years. For several infectious disorders, PCR assays are quite successful at detecting harmful DNA. To find cures for life-threatening illnesses, researchers are working to expand the coverage of PCR and RT-PCR assays. The COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the demand for PCR and real-time PCR molecular diagnostics in particular.

Primary Cell Culture Market- Increased demand for primary cell culture as a result of rising tissue culture and tissue engineering research will see a steady recovery in the short term, with a good long-term growth forecast. Cell culture research is in high demand around the world, which is expected to propel the primary cell culture market forward in the coming years. The demand for primary cell culture is increasing as research into new treatments progresses.

Microscopy Devices Market- The number of contract research organizations (CROs) has increased dramatically, expanding the market for microscopy devices. This is due to the fact that all major corporations are outsourcing their research and development in order to concentrate more on their core business segments and cut costs elsewhere. Microscopes have allowed academics to perform in-depth academic and exploratory study over the years.
