Increasing demand for safety and hygiene in food industry will encourage improvement in the quality of products. Driven by this, the focus on quality of products across diverse industries has encouraged manufacturers to emphasize on the adoption of sterility and safety testing to ascertain product quality. This is expected to bolster industrial microbiology sales growth in coming years.

Spurred by consistently rising demand, several leading players are focusing on product launches. For instance, in 2018, BioMerieuxx,a leading player in industrial microbiological control field has launched ENDOZYME® II GO, a new endotoxin test in the BioMerieuxx ENDONEXT™ range of recombinant horseshoe crab Factor C assays.

Focus on drug development and increasing demand for pathogen testing in food products also creating opportunities for sales.

According to the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI), investment in research and development activities targeted at enhancing industrial microbiology products have resulted in expenditure on healthcare to increase.

As per ABPI, the pharmaceutical sector investment totaled US$ 156.7 Bn in 2016 and it is estimated to increase in coming years, creating impressive scope for the growth of the market.

Stringent regulations implemented on the use of the anti-microbial food additives and favorable policies are supporting adoption of sterility testing. This in turn, accelerating demand for industrial microbiology.

For instance, in 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for pharmaceutical microbiology and the U.S. government made it compulsory for industries to undergo sterility testing and bio-burden testing to examine toxicity level of a drug or additives. Implementation of stringent regulations such as this will create opportunities for growth of the market. 

Rising usage of microorganisms in syrup formulations has improved adoption of sterility and bio-burden testing. Growing demand for pathogen testing in the food sector and increasing drug development are creating opportunities for market growth,” said a Future Market Insights (FMI) analyst.
