Microbial identification is a technique used to get characterization of the microbes and their relation with environment. It is of utmost important as microbes can easily contaminate production facilities, products and raw materials. It has outperformed the conventional culture based methods, which are slow and have high risk of error. This technique is widely used in various stages of drug manufacturing as a part of cGMP, environmental application and in disease diagnostic purpose. Rising food safety concerns, increasing incidences of infectious diseases and technological advancement in products are the major factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, high prevalence rate of infectious diseases, rising disposable incomes, government initiatives are also expected to provide growth to the market. The factor restricting the growth of the markets are high cost and stringent regulatory framework.
