E-Coli Testing Market: Global Trends Industry Analysis Market Size and Forecasts up to 2023

Select Your License Type


The global e-coli testing market is projected to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2023, growing with a CAGR of 6.0% to 6.5% from 2016 to 2023.  Escherichia coli are bacterium or germs present in the digestive tracts of animals as well as humans. Though most of E-Coli bacteria are harmless, some cause diarrhoea along with blood loss, severe anaemia, kidney failure, urinary tract infections and other type 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. Moreover, it can infect raw fruits and raw vegetables, if they are exposed to animal faeces. Presence of animal or human faeces can infect water resources such as lakes, pools, rivers, wells and other water supplies with E-Coli. Older people and children under the age of five are more prone to E-Coli infection. 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 large volume of samples of water. 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 E-coli testing market.

The increasing number of diarrhoea 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 provide 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 are 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 emergence of new technologies are attracting new players to the market.
