Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market  is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecasting period ( 2022-2029).

Antibiotic susceptibility or antibiotic sensitivity is the vulnerability of bacteria to antibiotics. An antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) is done to help choose the antibiotic that will be most effective against the specific types of bacteria or fungus infecting an individual. AST detects resistance, confirms susceptibility, and guides the choice of patient therapy. Antibiotic resistance is a major global health issue which entails action across the world. Determining the causative pathogens and their antibiotic sensitivities are essential for guiding antimicrobial therapy and typically needs between two days to one week from the time of sample collection. 

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market Dynamics 

The global market for the Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market is primarily driven by a rise in the number of infectious diseases and technological advancements in antimicrobial susceptibility techniques. In 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO), ranked three infectious diseases (lower respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, and tuberculosis) in the top ten causes of death worldwide. According to WHO in 2017, 10 million people fell ill with TB, and 1.6 million died from the disease. Other factors further propelling the market growth are increased funding, research grants, public-private investments, and the development of multidrug resistance due to drug abuse. For instance, in November 2018, Arizona State University's researchers received a five-year, US$5.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop a more effective antimicrobial susceptibility test that detects and images individual bacterial cells and determines their susceptibility to antibiotics via a novel algorithm. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, an estimated 600 000 new cases of rifampicin- or multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR/RR-TB) emerged globally, and MDR/RR-TB caused 240 000 deaths. An anti-TB drug resistance surveillance data showed that 4.1% of new and 19% of previously treated TB cases in the world are estimated to have MDR/RR-TB.

However, the high cost of automated antimicrobial susceptibility testing systems and stringent regulatory procedures may hinder market progress.  

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market Segmentation

By Product Type, the global Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing market is segmented into manual antimicrobial susceptibility testing products, Automated Laboratory Instruments, and Consumables. The manual susceptibility testing products are sub-segmented into  Susceptibility Testing Disks, Mic Strips, and Susceptibility Plates and hold the most significant global market share. It can be attributed to the increasing demand for susceptibility testing products with the rising prevalence of infectious diseases leading. The standard procedure for assessing antimicrobial activity is the disc diffusion test. It can be attributed to its convenience, efficiency, and cost making the disk diffusion method the most widely used method for determining antimicrobial resistance. Another procedure being more commonly used is the MIC Strips (minimum inhibitory concentration).

By Method, the global Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing market is segmented into Broth Dilution Method, Rapid Automated Method, Disk Diffusion Method, Gradient Diffusion Method, and Molecular Testing Method. Disk diffusion method holds the most substantial market share in the global antimicrobial susceptibility test market as it is extensively used for epidemiologic and clinical purposes. The broth dilution method is a fast-growing market share as it is widely used for the detection of infection caused by E. coli, Salmonella, and Enterococcus. 

By Test Type, the global Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing market is segmented into antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and others. Antibacterial testing dominates the test type segment for the AST market owing to the rising prevalence of bacterial infection and a growing number of patients suffering from antimicrobial resistance. Antiparasitic tests are gaining high traction on account of the health burden caused by parasitic infections such as dengue, malaria, and encephalitis, etc. According to WHO in 2017, it is estimated that 219 million cases of malaria occurred globally, out of which 90% corresponds to the WHO African region.

North America

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market Geographical Analysis

North America is the dominant share in the global Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing market, and it is primarily attributed to factors such as the increasing incidence of infectious diseases, increasing adoption and accessibility to technologically advanced susceptibility testing products. Moreover, the rising prevalence of antimicrobial resistance, government investments, the established healthcare infrastructure, and the increasing disposable income contribute to the growth of North America’s share. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), annually in the US, approximately 2 million people get an antibiotic-resistant infection, of which at least 23,000 people die.

Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, owing to the prevalence of various infectious diseases. Another factor likely to present a significant opportunity is the region’s rapidly improving healthcare infrastructure. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention in 2018, 34,100 cases of infectious diseases were imported to mainland China during the period 2005-2016.

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market Competitive Analysis 

A few of the key companies in the global antimicrobial susceptibility testing market include – bioMérieux S.A., Danaher Corporation, Becton, Dickinson and Company, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., and Merck Group.
