The increasing use of reagents in drug delivery research and development would boost the segment's as well as the market's growth. In addition, the use of automated equipment and microbial detection systems in the biotechnology industry has enhanced uptake. Growing industry safety concerns and rising demand for starter cultures in the pharmaceutical and food industries are affecting global microbial media market growth. Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria produce insecticidal proteins called Cry, Vip, and Cyt, which kill a variety of insect orders and nematodes. These proteins have been widely used in agricultural pest control strategies as sprays or expressed in genetically modified plants. Over the projected period, the market for Equipment and Systems is anticipated to increase at a healthy rate of 6.8%. Filtration pumps and systems, as well as air monitoring systems, are becoming more widely used in the pharmaceutical business, resulting in increased segment growth.

Industrial Microbiology Market Segment Analysis – By Testing Type

Based on Testing Type, the Industrial Microbiology Market is divided into sterility testing, microbial limiting testing, bio burden testing, and other testing types. As sterility testing is the initial stage in determining whether or not there is any microbial contamination, it has the biggest market share in this industry. It's commonly employed in the fields of food, pharmaceuticals, water, and cosmetics. Owing to the widespread use of sterility tests in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries, the market is likely to grow rapidly throughout the forecast period. To improve the palatability of bitter medications, Monosodium glutamate is occasionally used with conventional sugar. Bio-burden testing is the next fast-rising sector and is estimated to account for the fastest CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period 2021-2026 as regulatory authorities are making it an obligatory test for investigational new drug (IND) submissions and medical device submissions. Genetically modified organisms are used as vaccinations to protect animals, including humans, against infectious diseases. In the pharmaceutical industry, bioburden, environmental, and water tests are carried out on a massive scale. Industrial microbiology applications, such as bio-burden assays, are used to assess aerobic and anaerobic organisms, which is driving segment expansion. With the growth of the biopharmaceutical business, sterility and bio-burden tests have become more common.

Industrial Microbiology Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Based on Geography, in 2020, North America Industrial Microbiology Market accounted for 40% of the global revenue market share. The increasing rise in various industries including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, agricultural, environmental, and cosmetics is likely to boost the industrial microbiology market in this region. According to the Canadian Society of Microbiologists, researchers in applied and environmental microbiology are involved in a variety of microbiological activities in Canada. The market is expected to rise owing to the vast variety of applications supported by various companies' investments, infrastructure development, and growing support from the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) and Canada Health. When monosodium glutamate is added to food, the FDA requires that it be labeled as "monosodium glutamate." Other glutamic acid salts, such as monopotassium glutamate and monoammonium glutamate, must also be listed on labels and cannot be grouped together under the terms "spices," "natural flavoring," or other broad terms. The demand for industrial microbiology has increased as a result of strict regulatory frameworks linked with antimicrobial food additives and favorable policies favoring the implementation of sterility testing, particularly in the food and beverage industry. For example, the USFDA mandated the use of sterility and bio-burden test to determine a drug's or additive's toxicity level in a 2020 report on pharmaceutical microbiology. Asia-Pacific is estimated to increase at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period 2021-2026. As the biopharmaceutical business has evolved, so has the demand for industrial microbiology, and sterility testing has become more widespread in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries. As the pharmaceutical industry's research and development activities have risen across the region, the market need for industrial microbiology has improved.
