Bioburden Testing Market Report 2020: COVID-19 Growth and Change To 2027

Bioburden Testing Market Research Report: By Test Type (Aerobic Count, Anaerobic Count, and others), by Product Type (Consumables, Instruments), by Application (Raw Materials Testing, Medical Devices Testing, and others), by End-User - Forecast Till 2027

Bioburden testing, also known as microbial limits testing or microbial enumeration test is a procedure used for the determination of microbial content in raw materials, in-process samples, and finished product in the pharmaceutical, biological, cosmetics, nutritional products, and medical device industry. The global bioburden testing market is showing significant progress and is expected to reach a valuation of USD 455 Mn at a CAGR of 9.15% by the end of the forecast period of 2018-2023, predicts Market Research Future (MRFR) in a detailed study.

Bioburden testing is carried out to limit the chances of any microbial contamination in a non-sterile product. Increasing food safety concerns is among a key factor supporting the growth of the market. Rise in a number of product recalls due to microbial contamination, food & beverage manufacturers are directing their focus towards prevention of contamination. The US FDA has mandated enactment of food safety measures for protecting consumer health which has further generated demand for bioburden testing.

Bioburden testing is standard in quality control of medical devices to ensure suitability of the devices which fosters the growth of the global bioburden testing market. Surging cases of sterility failures, raw material contamination, and requirement to ensure compliance with stringent FDA regulations pertaining to medical device testing has generated demand for bioburden testing.  

Test methods and specifications outlined by federal agencies of numerous countries suggest performing bioburden testing to ensure the viability of the volume of microorganisms present in pharmaceutical products. This can positively affect market prospects.

Regional Analysis

The Americas, Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA) are the key markets for bioburden testing.

The Americas is the largest market for bioburden testing. In the US, the FDA closely monitors the activities of industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and medical device which propels the growth of the market.

In Europe, quality requirements set by pharmacopeia commission for the safe production of processed foods, beverages, and medicines is driving the market for bioburden testing.

APAC is poised to showcase a relatively faster growth rate as compared to other markets. The growth of the pharmaceutical industry which is a major key end user of bioburden testing, a growing number of medical device manufacturers in Australia and amendment of food and drug safety regulations provide an impetus to the growth of the APAC bioburden testing market.

The MEA market is spurred by the growing use of bioburden testing for food and water contamination.
