LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Microbes from natural sources can contaminate food during production, which leads to food spoilage and foodborne illnesses. The growing cases of foodborne illness are increasing the need for food safety testing. Thus, several governments are focusing on introducing food-related safety standards. This is expected to fuel the demand for microbial identification during the forecast period. Furthermore, this industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by end-users (healthcare industry, food and beverage industry, and others) and geography (Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW).
Competitive vendor landscape
The global microbial identification market is highly competitive with major vendors such as Charles River, Danaher, Merck KGaA, QIAGEN, and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc, competing on the basis of price, quality, and market presence.
“To gain higher market shares, companies as a key strategy are involved in acquisitions and partnerships along with effective product launches. Leading corporations are aggressively pursuing to enhance their capabilities to gain a competitive edge through joint ventures, MoUs, and agreements or acquisitions,” says a senior research analyst from Technavio.
“Changing consumer preferences and the rise in disposable income are increasing the demand for packaged food and premium cosmetics. The chances of contamination of these products is high owing to factors such as poor manufacturing, organic solvents, and contaminated raw materials. This will drive the need for microbial identification devices to eliminate the presence of harmful microorganisms. Thus, the growing demand from the food and beverage and the cosmetic and personal care sectors will fuel the growth of the microbial identification market during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
