Pyrogens are the substances, and bacterial toxins that induce fever in the body. Pyrogen testing is widely used to determine presence of bacterial toxins in drugs and vaccines which might induce fever when used in humans. Conventionally rabbits were injected with drugs for pyrogen testing to determine fever development. However, advanced tests use blood of horseshoe crab to determine presence of pyrogens.
Rapidly growing pharmaceutical, medical devices and biotechnology industry is primarily driving the growth of the global pyrogen testing market. In addition, increasing government support and thereby increasing launch of new drugs is fueling the growth of the global pyrogen testing market.
While on the other hand, strict regulatory norm is the prime factor limiting the growth of the global pyrogen testing market. Based on the tests, the global pyrogen testing market has been segmented as follows:
- Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) Test
- Gel Clot Limits Test
- Recombinant Horseshoe Crab Factor C Assay
- Monocyte Activation Type Pyrogen Test
Based on the end users, the global pyrogen testing market has been segmented as follows:
- Human Testing
- Animal Testing
Based on the application, the global pyrogen testing market has been segmented as follows:
- Pharmaceutical Industry
- Biotechnology Industry
- Healthcare Industry
Geographically, the global pyrogen testing market can be segmented into four major geographies namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). North America comprises cumulative pyrogen testing market for the U.S and Canada. Europe comprises cumulative market of pyrogen testing in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and Rest of Europe (RoE).
Asia Pacific comprises cumulative market of pyrogen testing in China, India, Australia, New Zealand and rest of Asia Pacific (RoAPAC). Rest of the World (RoW) comprises pyrogen testing market in Latin America, Middle East and Russia. Currently, Europe and North America are leading the global pyrogen testing market. Highly developed research and development infrastructure, availability of government funding for new drug and medical device launch and well defined regulatory framework are some of the major factors that are driving the pyrogen testing market in North America and Europe.
Asia Pacific pyrogen testing market is anticipated to grow at a significant growth rate during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. Rapidly developing healthcare infrastructure, availability of skilled manpower at cheaper rate and low manufacturing cost is attracting key players in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry to Asia Pacific. Increasing presence of key players in this region is propelling the demand for pyrogen testing in Asia Pacific. Furthermore, government of India, China and Japan are offering funding for development of biotechnology and pharmaceutical sector in the respective country leading to increase in the demand for pyrogen testing. Latin American countries namely Mexico, Brazil and Argentina are anticipated to show faster growth rate than African and Middle Eastern countries. Availability of well defined regulatory framework and higher disposable income are some of the factors that are expected to drive the growth of pyrogen testing market in Latin America.
Some of the key players contributing to the global pyrogen testing market include, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., Hyglos Gmbh, Ellab A/S, Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, Genscript, Lonza Group, Wako Chemicals USA, Inc., Associates of Cape Cod, Inc., Merck & Co., Inc., Waters Corporation and Charles River Laboratories International, Inc.
