E-coli water testing kit market is projected to reach the valuation of USD 175 Mn by 2025 with a CAGR of 6.69%.
Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a bacterium that usually live in the intestines of humans and animals. Some types of E. coli are a significant part of a healthy human intestinal system. However, others are pathogenic and can cause disease and diarrhea. E. coli that causes diarrhea can be communicated through polluted water, food, or contact with animals or persons. Pathotypes characterize pathogenic E. coli strains. Six pathotypes of E. coli are associated with diarrhea, referred to as diarrheagenic E. coli. They are diffusely adherent enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC), E. coli (DAEC), enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC), enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC), enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC), and Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC). Main sign and indications of E. coli infection include stomach pain, diarrhea, and nausea and vomiting. Cases of E. coli contamination are usually long-established by the discovery of bacteria in stool samples of sick individuals.
The E. coli Water Testing Kits are available at different price ranges in the market as per the array of dimensions of anticipated water characteristics. All types of water test kits are equal in requests based on their end-use. Many of the water testing kits are self-contained kits that do not need any other gear, such as a photometer, to test the sample, which makes them cost-effective and highly moveable, fast, and suitable. The Water Test Kit equipment market is majorly the organized sector, with more than half of total share in terms of sales. North America ruled the Global E. coli Testing Market in 2018, and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. The U.S. dominated the market in North America due to increased adoption of new tools such as next-generation sequencing, higher mindfulness, significant health care outlay incomplete national budgets, early availability of advanced tools, and higher penetration of research doings across the country. Asia Pacific is mostly to be a highly lucrative market for E. coli infections, and it is predictable to increase at a high CAGR during the forecast period. The market is supported by rapidly rising hospitals and diagnostic centers in advanced countries such as China and India, which in turn is predicted to increase the demand for water testing kits in agreement with the growth of the E. coli testing market. Since the laboratory facilities are not readily obtainable in the rural areas, the rural area presents a vast business chance for the E. coli Water Testing Kit market development.
Pharmaceutical segment is playing major role in the E.coli water testing kit market
The global market, based on industry, is segmented into energy, pharmaceutical, clinical, food, chemicals & material, and environmental. The medicinal section conquered the market with the main share in 2018. Whereas, the food testing section is predictable to grow at substantial CAGR due to surge in food safety mindfulness among customers and developers in labeling mandates in various areas. Based on water type, the market is divided into drinking & bottled water and industrial water. The industrial water section conquered the market with the largest market share in 2018, and it is predictable to grow at substantial CAGR due to a surge in industrial applications and development in regulatory agreement.
Increase in initiatives by government and non-government organizations create awareness
An increase in controlling supplies on water and food planned for human use has meaningfully increased the request for E. coli testing. In 2009, the U.S. FDA applied a policy wherein bottled water sellers must test their source water for possible pollutants such as E. coli. As per the rules of the Federal Agency, bottled water producers are obligatory to uphold reliable records for source water testing. Any source that came positive for E. coli must be treated properly before its use in the production of the final product.
North America is expected to witness a significant growth in the market during the forecast period
North America controls the global E. coli testing market due to increased government funding on healthcare infrastructure and technological progression in E. coli investigative events. Government initiatives, rising populace, and growing awareness about E. coli contagions in the Asia Pacific region are predictable for healthy development in the coming time.
