Market Insights                                                  

Industrial microbiology refers to screening of microorganisms for production of pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, personal care products and other applications. Industries worldwide perform billions of tests every year thus representing substantial market potential. Moreover, ever growing demand for consumer products, increasing demand for developing high quality products, establishment of international production standards and safety requirements have urged the demand for novel microbiology testing solutions. On the basis of products, global industrial microbiology market is broadly segmented into equipment and systems, reaction consumables and laboratory supplies. It is observed that reaction consumables is major revenue contributing segment and it is anticipated that it will show sluggish growth during forecast period. Growing safety concern in industries and increasing demand for starter cultures in pharmaceutical and food industries influencing the market growth of microbial media worldwide. It is anticipated that equipment and systems would show growth during forecast period. Increasing concern towards the microbial safety and stringent government regulations to control the quality of products used in microbiology laboratories influencing the market growth of products in industrial microbiology laboratories.

On the basis testing type, the market is segmented into sterility testing, microbial limits testing, bio burden testing and others. Sterility testing occupies the largest market share in this market, since it is the first step carried out to check the presence of any microbial contamination. It is widely used in food products, pharmaceuticals, water and cosmetics area. Bio-burden testing is the next rapidly growing market as it is being made a mandatory test by regulatory authorities for investigational new drug (IND) submission and for medical devices. The global industrial microbiology market comprises extensive applications in various segments like pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, food and beverages, agriculture and environmental, personal care products and others. . Pharmaceutical and biotechnology segment held the largest share in the end-user segment, due to the role of microbiology on the advances in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries has resulted in to the discovery from vaccines to medical devices, and dietary supplements, which is directly responsible for the growth of industrial microbiology  market.
