Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Drivers

Increasing adoption of bioremediation is expected to boost growth of the global industrial microbiology market over the forecast period. For instance, in January 2020, Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) announced its plans to resume bioremediation at Hussain Sagar, a lake in Hyderabad, India.

Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Opportunities 

Increasing use microbiologic excipients such as pharmaceutical excipients is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the market. Microbiologic excipients such as anionic polysaccharide, commonly known as alginates, is used as disintegrating agent in tablets and thickening and stabilizing agent in pharmaceutical suspensions and emulsions.

Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Restraints

Although there are several types of natural pigments from various microbial sources, the commercial development of natural pigments as food colorants is challenging. This is attributed to regulatory hurdles for the development of any new compounds for food use. This in turn is expected to hinder growth of the market.

Key Takeaways:

Equipment and systems segment in the global industrial microbiology market was valued at US$ 2,834.6 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 5,893.4 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period. Manufacturers such as Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company, and other offer industrial microbiology equipment and systems in the market. These manufacturers have wide spread presence across the globe to cater to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and other industries which fuels growth of the market. Moreover, presence of variety of products is expected to support growth of the segment over the forecast period.

The sterility testing segment held dominant position in the global industrial microbiology market in 2018, accounting for 33.6% share in terms of value, followed by microbial limit testing and bio-burden testing, respectively. Quality control in pharmaceutical and food industry is of paramount importance, as healthcare is directly associated with the products from these industries. Microbial contamination in injectable, eye drops, drugs, nasal solutions, and food industries can be prevented with the help of micro-organisms by using various tests such as sterility testing. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), unsafe food contaminated with harmful bacteria, parasites, and viruses can cause more than 200 diseases from diarrhea to cancers. Furthermore, food contamination has cost around 33 Mn of healthy life years according to the WHO. This is expected to propel use of sterility testing in pharmaceuticals which is expected to support growth of the segment.
