The report also offers insightful and detailed information regarding the various key players operating in the global bioburden testing market, and their financials, apart from strategies, acquisitions & mergers, and market footprint. The global bioburden testing market is being segmented on the basis of test type, product type, application, end user, and region. The global bioburden testing market was valued at US$ XXX. XX million in 2016, and is expected to reach US$ XXX.X million by 2019, expanding at a CAGR of X.XX from 2017 to 2019.
Bioburden is normally defined as the number of bacteria living on a surface such as that of medical instruments or equipment etc. that has not been sterilized. The term is most often used in the context of bioburden testing, which is also known as microbial limit testing, and is performed on pharmaceutical and medical products for quality control purposes. Products or components used in the pharmaceutical or medical field require control of microbial levels during processing and handling. Bioburden or microbial limit testing on these products proves that these requirements have been met. The US FDA sets the regulatory standards in the US for bioburden testing; whereas, ISO (International Organization for Standardization) maintains the global standards for regulations.
Rapid and exponential growth in the medical device industries has been accelerating the use of bioburden testing, and is a primary driver for growth of the global bioburden testing market. increasing food safety standards is another important factor driving growth of the global bioburden testing market. Rising investments by companies on R&D in lifesciences and increasing product recalls due to microbial contamination are other factors driving growth of the target market in the recent past.
Some major factors restraining growth of the global bioburden testing market include time-consuming approval processes for new drugs. High cost for bioburden testing is expected to act as a restrain to growth of markets in developing and underdeveloped countries. Lack of trained professionals to conduct testing in these countries is another major factor supporting this restraint.
The market in the US accounts for major revenue contribution to the bioburden testing market in North America, and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Revenue from the market in Asia Pacific is projected to increase at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to various factors such as growing medical devices industry, robust investments in the healthcare sector, and rapidly increasing growth in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, growing number of government initiatives, and rising awareness about bioburden testing in various Asian countries.
