Bioburden Testing Market to Reach USD 1150 Million by 2026 at a CAGR of 15.4%

Wed, 11 September 2019 5:21

Bioburden testing estimates the number of microbial load on instruments and devices in medical, pharmaceutical, and food industry. In addition, unsafe or unhygienic food is likely to contain parasites or chemical substances, harmful bacteria, and viruses that has potential to cause over 200 diseases ranging from diarrhea to cancer. According to WHO, around 600 million people across the globe fall sick after consuming any contaminated food.

Food contamination particularly affects infants, young children, and elderly. To combat this situation, numerous governments are focusing on enforcing better guidelines for bioburden testing such as European Medical Agency for bioburden testing for pharmaceutical industry.

Raw Material Testing to Dominate the Global Bioburden Market

Pharmaceutical products cannot be manufactured without performing raw material analysis, identity purity and quality of the raw materials to ensure the product is suitable for its intended use. Rising demand for bioburden testing in analysis of cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive the market growth. For instance, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Milliflex offers bioburden testing kit for analysis of raw materials in pharmaceutical and cosmetics. Furthermore, testing of raw material is highly regulated in the pharmaceutical and food industries. Stringent government regulations for testing raw materials, excipients, and finished products based on various compendia including UPS/NF, JP, EP, FCC, and BP provide standardized test methods for the most common and widely used materials. Furthermore, raw material analysis is an integral part of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and the requirements in the GMP regulations.

Europe is Witnessing Rapid Demand for Microbiology Screening in the Pharmaceutical and Food Industries

Europe is the second largest market for bioburden testing. This can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of food poisoning in the region. According to the European Union (EU), around 100,000 human salmonellosis cases are reported each year. With rapid expansion of hospitals, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries, ensuring safety from the bioburden presence has become paramount.  For instance, as per European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Association, the pharmaceutical industry was valued at over USD 224268 million at ex-factory prices of European Pharmaceutical industry. Furthermore, rapidly expanding food industry is also offering a growth opportunity for the bioburden testing market. For instance, Europe food and beverage industries were valued at USD 1 trillion and 230 billion in 2018, respectively.
