Rising Cases of Microbial Diseases Add to Already High Demand for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Tests: Fact.MR Study

170 Pages Market Research Survey by Fact.MR, A Market Research and Competitive Intelligence Provider, Highlights Key Factors Enabling Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test Market Growth

The antimicrobial susceptibility test market survey offers insights into chief growth drivers and restrains impacting the overall growth trajectory. The report also divulges compelling insights into antimicrobial susceptibility test demand outlook in terms of product, end user, method, test type, and application. It studies key strategies adopted by vendors to increase sales in antimicrobial susceptibility test market.

Fact.MR – A Market Research and Competitive Intelligence Provider: The antimicrobial susceptibility test market will register more than 6.5% year on year growth in 2021, according to market analysis by Fact.MR.  Rapid advancement in medical infrastructure and rising per capita income of people in middle income countries are the key growth drivers.

Rise in collaboration between public and private antimicrobial susceptibility testing companies has been observed in healthcare sector. The key aim of these alliances is to obtain required funding for developing new products.

However, the costs of these testing systems are comparatively high owing to high development cost and very complex nature of testing. The situation is expected to improve with increasing government investment in these ventures to tackle the rising cases of bacteria, fungi, and parasites infections over the forecast period.

Increasing instances of severe drug abuse in animal breeding programs and steps undertaken to protect animals from infections have been reported in past few years. Excessive use of drugs can lead to the development of high drug resistance in the animals, causing drugs wastage and consequently economic loss to farmers. 

Delay in diagnosis of resistant strains of microbes might even lead to catastrophic events like epidemic and global pandemics. These concerns will drive the demand of rapid response antimicrobial susceptibility testing kits during the forecast period.

Increasing demand for personalized consumable medicines especially in emerging economies due to their low cost will drive the sales of antimicrobial susceptibility test products.

 “Growing awareness regarding infectious diseases and high demand for rapid susceptibility testing kits for faster detection of infection is expected to accelerate the sales of antimicrobial susceptibility testing kits in upcoming years", said a Fact.MR analyst.
