Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market is predicted to value over USD 4.6 billion by 2027 end with a CAGR of over 5.4% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Increased occurrence of infectious diseases worldwide, the initiation of antimicrobial resistance owing to drug overuse, rising initiatives by the government for controlling and detecting species with antimicrobial resistance are some of the major driving factors contributing to the antimicrobial susceptibility testing market growth. There has been a rising insistence for clinical microbiology testing procedures over the last few years leading to a steady proliferation of the market. Furthermore, with the rising prevalence of infectious diseases, the insistence for clinical microbiology processes for antimicrobial susceptibility and microbial identification testing for pathogens is predicted to experience substantial growth throughout the forecasted timeframe. With an extensive information available over bacterial pathogens and their susceptibility towards antimicrobials, it shall help in adopting appropriate therapies which is important for managing diseases.

According to multiple reports published by WHO, over 28,000 Ebola virus cases were reported in March 2016 and the countries affected by this virus were the United States, Italy, Spain, Nigeria, Senegal, Liberia, Mali, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Furthermore, over 10 million people were predicted to be diagnosed with tuberculosis in 2016 and over 1.6 million people died owing to tuberculosis. Similarly, in 2015, over 210 million were affected by malaria with over 85% deaths recorded in Africa. Such statistics states the growing prevalence of epidemics across the world, thereby increasing the antimicrobial susceptibility testing market demand.

The medical reimbursements for microbial testing are scarcely available is one of the primary factors impeding the market growth. Moreover, the emergence of expensive antimicrobial products has severely affected the growth of the market, especially in the United States. The healthcare services coding provides the medical reimbursements in the Unites States and these are looked after by the American Medical Association combined with the International Classification of Diseases codes. With such stringent regulations for reimbursements, the market growth is likely to be impeded during the forecast period.
