Market outlook of E.coli testing

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global E.coli testing market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The increasing incidence of diarrhea across the globe is the primary growth driver for this market. Globally, around 2 billion cases of diarrheal disease occur every year. Diarrhea presents a higher risk for people above 65 years old and children under five years. E.coli testing is used for the diagnosis of GI infections that leads to diarrhea, hence, the increasing incidence of the diarrheal disease is creating a demand for such testing, thereby, leading to market growth.

The increasing adoption of multiplexing PCR technology is also expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. Multiplexing PCR technology offers analysis of two or more analyte from the samples that leads to improved efficiency of overall procedures. For instance, Luminex's xTAG Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel (GPP) and BioFire's The FilmArray Gastrointestinal (GI) Panel are the leading products in the E.coli testing market.

Product segmentation and analysis of the E.coli testing market

  • Consumables (assays, reagents, kits)
  • Instruments (laboratory benchtop devices)

With a massive share of about 84%, the consumables segment dominated the E.coli testing market in 2015. Increasing demand for assay and rapid test kits are the main factors fueling the demand for consumables among the consumers. Rapid test methods are cost-effective compared to automated instruments, hence they are highly preferred in a laboratory and clinical setup.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the E.coli testing market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas accounted for almost 53% of the market share in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. The growing public awareness, increase in product launches, and numerous FDA approvals for new instruments are the primary drivers for the market growth in this region.
