Global E. coli Testing Market: Membrane Filtration Test to Gain Preference owing to High Accuracy and Cost Efficiency, says TMR

The competition in global E. coli market is low and the market is led by players whose products are approved by key government agencies. Various players have launched products, but without regulatory clearance. The competition at the local level is high as compared to the global level, states a new report by Transparency Market Research (TMR). The parity pricing limits profit margin for local players. Key players in the market are Clinical- Becton, Dickinson and Company, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.,  F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. The threat of new entrants is expected to be moderate because there are various favorable conditions as well as those that go against new entrants. The growing prevalence of diseases and the use of new innovative techniques are attracting new players to the market. The presence of government mediated and sponsored large players is a strong barrier for new players. The capital intensive research and development will also be an obstacle for new entrants. The threat of substitutes will be from internal substitutes such as new products.

According to the report, the global E. coli testing market is expected to reach US$2,107.9 mn by 2022. By test type, the market is expected to be led by enzyme-substrate method, which is expected to be worth US$142.1 mn by 2022. In terms of volume, the membrane filtration method is anticipated to lead as this method is cost effective than enzyme-substrate method. On the basis of geography, North America is expected to lead in the market and is expected to be worth US$726.8 mn by 2022. Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the most significant pace between 2013 and 2022.

Growing Prevalence of Water and Foodborne Diseases to Drive Market

The rise in the prevalence of water and foodborne diseases is one of the key drivers for the growth of the E. coli testing market. These diseases are prominent in developing and underdeveloped nations and therefore, are behind the growth of the market. The incidences of diarrhea and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) are growing rapidly worldwide and these mostly occur due to E. coli infections. To be able to arrest the spread of infection during epidemics, various environmental as well as clinical samples are tested, boosting the demand for E. coli testing globally. In addition to this, government initiatives will aid the market’s growth.

High Cost of Enzyme-substrate Test to Hinder Market’s Growth

Enzyme-substrate test or presence/absence (P/A) test kit, which is a key product driving the global E. coli testing market is costlier as compared to tests conducted using individual apparatus. Membrane filtration test is becoming the preferred test owing to their low cost and yet high accuracy rates. This is expected to hold true, particularly in the low and middle income countries. At present, most of the tests performed in Asia Pacific and Latin America use test kits, as high cost is the key factor limiting the growth of the market in developing nations. However, increasing demand for accurate and rapid test results will create an opportunity for PCR-based test kits for environmental water testing.

This information is based on the findings of a report published by Transparency Market Research titled “E.coli Testing Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2022.”
