The market for clinical microbiology is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6.9% from 2020 to 2027 and expected to reach the market value of around US$ 6.5 Bn by 2027.
Clinical Microbiology is a branch of medical science that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases. It is associated with the various clinical applications of microbes for the improvement of health. Additionally, the four kinds of microorganisms that cause infectious diseases include bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses.
The technological advancements in disease diagnostics and rising incidence of infectious diseases and growing outbreaks of epidemics are supporting the market growth. The increased funding and public-private investments are also major factors bolstering market growth. The market is facing challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the manufacturing and supply chain process as the delivery of the product to the end-user is disrupted. Furthermore, improving healthcare infrastructure across emerging countries are anticipated to provide potential opportunities over the forecast timeframe from 2020 to 2027.
On the other side, limited reimbursement policies for microbiology testing procedures are likely to restrict the growth to an extent throughout the forecast timeframe from 2020 to 2027.
