Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market

bioMérieux SA (France) and BD (US) are Leading Players in the Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market

The antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) market is projected to reach USD 4.2 billion by 2025 from USD 3.2 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Growth in this market is primarily driven by the rising incidence of infectious diseases; technological advancements towards the development of rapid AST technologies; increased funding, research grants, and public-private investments; growing government initiatives to detect and control antimicrobial-resistant species; and the emergence of multidrug resistance due to drug abuse. However, the high cost of automated antimicrobial susceptibility testing systems is expected to limit market growth in the coming years. Complex regulatory frameworks that delay the approval of new microbial susceptibility tests are also expected to challenge market growth to a certain extent.

The competitive landscape includes the analysis of the key growth strategies adopted by major players between 2017–2020 to expand their global presence and increase their market shares in the antimicrobial susceptibility testing market. The key growth strategies adopted by the top players in the market include product launches and approvals, agreements, expansions, and acquisitions. Product approvals and launches were the most widely adopted growth strategies by market players in the last three years to garner a larger share of the market. In 2019, the antimicrobial susceptibility testing market was dominated by bioMérieux SA (France), Becton, Dickinson and Company (US), Thermo Fisher Scientific (US), Danaher Corporation (US), and Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (US).
