[ 170 + Pages Research Report ] Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market to surpass USD 5.8 Billion by 2030 from USD 2.8 Billion in 2019 in terms of value growing at a CAGR of 6.25% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2020-30.

Product Overview

Antimicrobial susceptibility testing is a technique used to assess whether an antibiotic is susceptible to a single organism or group of organisms. The most frequently used research methods for the analysis of antimicrobial susceptibility are broth microdilution or rapid automated instrument methods. Such approaches are used and sold commercially with materials and equipment.

Market Highlights

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 6.25% in 2030.

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market to surpass USD 5.8 Billion by 2030 from USD 2.8 Billion in 2019 in terms of value growing at a CAGR of 6.25% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2020-30. Factors such as growing global infectious disease incidences, increased funding and government initiatives, the emergence of multidrug resistance, and technological developments in the production of rapid AST techniques are expected to drive the growth of the global market for antimicrobial susceptibility testing in the coming years. In addition, the untapped development of new markets provides the players operating in this sector with substantial revenue growth opportunities. In addition, it is anticipated that the production of genotypic methods that provide fast and accurate detection or confirmation of antimicrobial resistance would drive market growth.

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market: Segments

Automated laboratory instruments segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market is segmented by product as automated laboratory instruments, manual antimicrobial susceptibility testing products, culture and growth media, and consumables. Susceptibility testing discs, MIC strips, and susceptibility testing plates are used in manual antimicrobial susceptibility testing items. With a share of over USD 2.8 Billion percent in 2019, the manual susceptibility testing products segment is expected to lead the market. The growth of the segment is expected to be guided by increased incidences of antibacterial resistance, new product launches, and the growing adoption of susceptibility testing discs in emerging countries. In addition, the availability of a variety of consumables and easy understanding are further driving the growth of this segment. Moreover, technological advancements and rising R&D investments by key players to deliver novel technologies in the market are factors driving the growth of the segment.

Antifungal Segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market is segmented by type into antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and other susceptibility testing types. The antibacterial susceptibility testing segment accounted for the largest revenue share of USD 2.8 Billion in 2019 and is projected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. The major share of this segment can be traced to the overuse, the emergence of multidrug resistance, of a wide spectrum of antibiotics. Overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics contributes to drug resistance growth in pathogens, thus raising the need for better drug screening. The early availability of knowledge on bacterial pathogens and their resistance to antimicrobials leads to the timely implementation of effective treatment therapy and plays an important role in the disease’s management.

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market: Market Dynamics


Rising Use of Antimicrobial Susceptibility

Recent times have seen a marked change in personalized drugs, which is growing the market for goods to screen for antimicrobial susceptibility. Rising government policies are expected to complement the demand for antimicrobial susceptibility tests in diagnostic laboratories and hospitals in terms of improving quality healthcare infrastructure at a global level and increasing susceptibility to infectious diseases. In addition to these institutes, in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, antimicrobial resistance test kits are gaining momentum for research & production of new bacteria-fighting drugs. Online distribution platforms will continue to be a key catalyst for the development of the demand for antimicrobial susceptibility tests in the future.

Increasing Prevalence of Multi-Drug Resistance Organisms

The growing prevalence of multidrug-resistant species and the awareness of precision medicine are the major factors attributable to market development. The growing number of diseases that are multidrug-resistant raises the need for testing for antimicrobial susceptibility. Growing awareness campaigns and personalized medicine initiatives have a positive impact on consumer development, and the other aspect that plays a key role in bringing the market for antimicrobial susceptibility testing to the next level is increasing the use of pharmaceutical companies' tests.


Stringent Government Regulatory Policies

Strict government regulatory policies and the difficulties associated with testing for antimicrobial susceptibility are expected to hamper market growth over the forecast period. Automated research instruments for antimicrobial susceptibility are fitted with highly advanced features and functionalities and priced at premium rates. The incubation and detection time is decreased by the use of automated AST systems. The high cost of these systems, however, is a major restraining factor for their widespread end-user adoption, especially for small-budget institutions.
