With product safety becoming a global concern and increasing focus of governmental regulators and product manufacturers on maintaining the quality of products, strict regulations have been imposed on manufacturers to guarantee microbiological quality control and composition of the product.
For detecting and identifying pathogens and micro-organisms in the manufacturing process, several technologies have been developed such as rapid microbiological methods (RMMs), which aim at quantifying the product quality parameters and make the quality control of the production process cost and time-effective and increase the accuracy of the results. In addition to this, several automated and semi-automated systems have been developed based on technologies such as real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR), flow cytometry, matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometer, and bioluminescence technology.
Owing to the applications of microbiology testing across various industries, such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage, dairy, agriculture and fermentation, paper, biotechnology, and water & environmental industry, the global industrial microbiology market is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, 2019-2028.
According to the latest market intelligence report by BIS Research titled “Global Industrial Microbiological QC Market – Analysis and Forecast, 2019-2028,” the global industrial microbiological QC market is anticipated to grow at a stable CAGR of 6.22% and 5.42% by-product revenue and test revenue respectively, during the forecast period.
Despite the stable growth projected, the market faces some challenges that are restraining its progress. These include the shortage of skilled professionals in industrial microbiology laboratories anded by microbiologists. As per the report published by BIS Research, RMMs are projected to grow at a healthy growth rate and dominate the industrial microbiological QC market during the forecast period. The growth of RMMs can be attributed to their prime advantages, namely low running costs and high accuracy. In terms of the different technologies on which key systems are based, MALDI TOF mass spectrometry dominated the market in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period.
the high cost involved in the quality control processes.
As mentioned above, RMM technologies are being widely adopt
With emerging technologies such as automated and semi-automated products, rapid sterility testing methods, and genetically modified products being developed and rising demand for innovative analytic techniques along with extensive advancements in the medical industry, the industrial microbiological QC market is expected to grow at an accelerated rate in the forecast period.
