Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market Worth $4.7 Billion : MarketsandMarkets

In Jan,2023 bioMerieux launched a automated instrument named MAESTRIA


Northbrook, IL 60062 -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/21/2023 -- Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST) is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of bacteria to various antibiotics. It is an important part of determining the best antibiotic to treat an infection. By performing Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing, clinicians can identify which antibiotics will be effective in treating a particular infection, allowing them to choose the most appropriate treatment. The results of the Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing can be used to determine the most effective therapy for the patient.

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Market in terms of revenue was estimated to be worth $3.6 billion in 2022 and is poised to reach $4.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2022 to 2027 according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™. The rising prevalence of infectious diseases, high antibiotic resistance, and supportive government measures to lessen the burden of infectious diseases can all be linked to the expansion of the antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) industry. The use of antimicrobial susceptibility testing is growing due to an increase in specific illnesses such pneumonia and bloodstream infections caused by E. coli, K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, and others.
