The global outbreak of COVID-19 has compelled several companies in the healthcare industry to focus on finding a cure for this life-threatening disease. The number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies that focus on biomedical research is increasing, resulting in rising demand for mycoplasma testing to identify and eliminate mycoplasma contamination during the development of cell-derived biological and pharmaceutical products. However, the global outbreak of coronavirus is expected to have a neutral impact on the growth of the mycoplasma testing market during the forecast period.

Technavio's custom research reports offer detailed insights on the impact of COVID-19 at an industry level, a regional level, and subsequent supply chain operations. This customized report will also help clients keep up with new product launches in direct & indirect COVID-19 related markets, upcoming vaccines and pipeline analysis, and significant developments in vendor operations and government regulations.

The market is driven by the increasing focus on R&D of biopharmaceuticals. In addition, the growing M&A and partnerships between CROs, and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies is anticipated to boost the growth of the mycoplasma testing market.

New class therapeutics such as cell therapy and gene therapy are gaining popularity as a novel treatment for many chronic and acute diseases. Thus, many pharmaceutical companies and research institutes are concentrating on the R&D of these products owing to their huge market potential. However, cell therapy products witness challenges around sterilization and its storage, as a result of which, it has to be immediately administered to the patients. Common mycoplasma species such as Acholeplasma laidlawii, Mycoplasma arginini, Mycoplasma bovis, Mycoplasma fermentans, and Mycoplasma salivarium have been identified as contamination in cell cultures and the biopharmaceutical processes. A product developed with mycoplasma contamination triggers serious side effects in humans. This is driving the demand for mycoplasma test kits. Rapid mycoplasma test kits are commercially available in the market that can be used in research labs and biopharmaceutical manufacturing companies for cell line qualification and in-process monitoring.
