A recent report published by
Infinium Global Research on E. coli testing market provides an in-depth analysis
of segments and sub-segments in the global as well as regional E. coli testing
market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro
indicators on the global and regional E. coli testing market over the short
term as well as long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation of
trends, forecast and dollar values of global E. coli testing market. According
to the report, the global E. coli testing market is projected to grow at a CAGR
of 8.2% over the forecast period of 2019-2025.
Escherichia coli are bacterium or germs present in the
digestive tracts of animals as well as humans. Though most of the E. coli
bacteria are harmless, some cause diarrhea along with blood loss, severe anemia,
kidney failure, urinary tract infections and other types of infections. The
symptoms of E. coli infection include abdominal cramping, bruising, bloody
urine, decreased urine output, dehydration fatigue, fever, loss of appetite,
nausea and pale skin. E. coli bacteria can infect the meat during its
processing and it can infect other food materials in the vicinity. E. coli can
infect raw milk and dairy products if milk is not properly pasteurized. Older
people and children under the age of five are more prone to E. coli infection.
Additionally, in water treatment plants, E. coli is the test organism for
finding out the effectiveness of the effluent disinfection treatment process.
Membrane filtration is the most popular testing method utilized for E. coli globally
as it is possible to test a large volume of samples of water.
The increasing number of diarrhea cases across the world is
driving the growth of global E. coli testing market. The emergence of new
end-users of bacteria, which are drug-resistant provides a boost to the E. coli
testing market. The improved support from governments for E. coli testing is a
major factor that drives the growth of the market. In the environment water
testing segment, technological advancements and the polymerase chain reaction
tests are providing growth opportunities to the major players in the market.
The increasing cost involved in the enzyme substrate tests is restraining the
growth of the E. coli testing industry slightly. Moreover, the presence of the
government and other major sponsors in the market are expected to provide
market barriers for the new players in the global E. coli testing market during
the forecast period. The increasing number of E. coli infections and the
emergence of new technologies are attracting new players to the market.
Furthermore, in terms of volume, Membrane filtration method is expected to be
the leading E. coli testing method. Enzyme-substrate reaction tests are
qualitative tests, which establish the presence of E. coli if a colored substrate
is produced. It accounts for approximately 80% of overall revenue in the E.
coli testing market
North America leads the global E. coli testing the market as
there is significant government funding in the healthcare system. The U.S.
drives the North American market with the introduction of advanced testing
technologies. After the outbreaks of E. coli infections in certain countries
during the early part of this decade, The European market has become stable.
France, Germany, and the UK are the major countries that drive the European E.
coli testing market, as there is an emphasis to curtail any further major E.
coli outbreaks. Increasing water pollution in countries such as China and India
are expected to drive the Asia-Pacific E. coli testing market. Moreover, the
presence of a huge population in the region has prompted several major players
to invest and expand in the Asia-Pacific region. Governments in the region are
spreading awareness about E. coli infections and it is helping the market to
grow. In Africa, the presence of waterborne and foodborne E. coli infections in
developing and developed countries are expected to drive the E. coli testing
market. Latin American E. coli testing market is also expected to experience
growth during the forecast period.
