Microbiology Culture Market to Witness Increased Demand as Food Recalls and Quality Issues Increase

Having myriad applications ranging from infection control to better agricultural productivity to improving the productivity of industrial processes, it should come as no surprise that the demand for antibiotics continues to soar in the global marketplace. According to the Centre for Disease Dynamics, Economics and Policy (CDDEP), a U.S.-based independent research body, to cater to the healthcare needs of the over 8.5 bn people across the globe, the demand for antibiotics will rise to 105.600 tons by 2030. A recent market research report by Transparency Market Research identifies that this surging demand for antibiotics is the key growth driver for the global microbiology culture market.

According to the findings of the said report, the global microbiology culture market will expand at a promising CAGR of 5.9% between 2015 and 2023, rising from a valuation of US$4.51 bn in 2014 to an opportunity of US$7.59 bn by the end of 2023.

Transparency Market Research analysts highlight some of the key trends in the global microbiology culture market in this blog post: 

What factors will prove to be most encouraging for the growth of the market?

In the recent times, the rising numbers of food scams and food recalls have increased the attention of healthcare agencies and food regulatory authorities into the areas of food safety and quality. Most food products need to strictly adhere to FDA and HACCP standards. In the wake of such changes, several companies in the F&B landscape are focusing on the formulation of new products – a process that largely relies on the effective use of microbiology culture. As food trade volumes reach record highs every year, especially in emerging countries, microbiology culture will play a central role in food development and safety.

As food safety standards become more inflexible, advanced microbiology culture methods media and methods will create a rapidly expanding market. Since microbiology culture methods represent the most widely used diagnostic method to investigate infectious diseases, their demand in various laboratories and diagnostic centers will rise. This factor will play a key role in determining the global demand for microbiology culture in the next few years, providing the market good traction.

Which Culture Type, Bacterial or Eukaryotic, takes Precedence in terms of demand? 

Microbiology culture can either be bacterial or eukaryotic. Eukaryotic culture types primarily comprise eukaryotic algal cultures and yeast cultures. Bacterial culture was seen to be most preferred culture in the global market in 2014. This segment will likely continue to dominate globally through the next few years as well. Food microbiology, biological drugs, and disease research are all opening up promising avenues for the growth of the global microbiology culture market, and many of these make use of bacterial culture rather than eukaryotic culture.

Among the various microbiology culture media, demand for complex media was the maximum in 2014. In the same year, the demand for special media was also seen to be considerably high, but lower than complex media. In the coming years, complex media will continue to see consistent use owing to its attribute of providing a full range of growth for bacteria with complex nutritional requirements as well as unidentified bacterial species and strains. This attribute of complex media gives it an advantage over special media in certain scenarios, as the latter supports the growth of only a few specific microorganisms.
