With the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization's (CDSCO) regulatory certification of the QIAstat-Dx system, healthcare providers in India are allowed to diagnose patients by collecting specimens more quickly, correctly, and easily. In under one hour, the QIAstat-Dx Gastrointestinal Panel 2 may identify 22 clinically important viral, parasite, and bacterial pathogens that cause the majority of gastrointestinal infections. Comparing this panel to standard microbiological testing, which frequently necessitates incubating samples for at least 24 hours and up to 10 days, reveals considerable advantages.

Market Overview

The specimen management procedure plays a crucial role in producing accurate, meaningful, and clinically relevant microbiology laboratory results. The quality of the samples and how they are processed in the microbiology lab still have a significant impact on how the results of the microbiological analysis are interpreted and how accurate they are. Crucial aspects of the diagnostic procedure include the type of specimen, when to collect the sample, and how to sample, store, and transport it. The need to examine and update all sample processing procedures arises from the development of novel laboratory techniques for uncommon diseases.

Bacterial and Viral Specimen Collection Market Dynamics

Driver

Increasing prevalence of infectious viral diseases

The rise in the prevalence of infectious viral diseases has increased the demand for bacterial & viral specimen collection, which is estimated to drive the growth of the global bacterial and viral specimen collection market over the forecast period. For instance, On June 9, 2024, according to the data published by the World Health Organization (WHO), an intergovernmental organization, it was estimated that in the last 28 days, the number of COVID-19 cases has increased by 4,528 globally.

Restraint

Challenges and limitations associated with the bacterial & viral specimen collection

Certain limitations, such as the possibility of bacteria becoming resistant to bacteriophages (BPs), issues with selecting the accurate and effective bacteriophages to treat different bacterial infections, and lack of skilled professionals, have been found to hamper the growth of the global bacterial and viral specimen collection market over the forecast period. For instance, in June 2023, according to the data published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, it was estimated that bacteria have the ability to develop many ways to avoid viral infections, which may lead to the emergence of bacterial resistance against BPs.

These include phage adherence to the bacterial pathogen being prevented by chemicals secreted from hiding, changing, or losing receptors, activating mechanisms to prevent phage Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) injection into cells, and inhibiting phage replication and release. The Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of lyticogenic phages is incorporated into the bacterial genome. As such, they may serve as conduits for the horizontal transfer of genetic material and contribute to the spread of genes that confer antibiotic resistance (ARGs). It is theoretically possible for new microorganisms or even more resilient bacteria to arise as a result of transduction.

Opportunity

Increasing launch of microbiology laboratory

The key bacterial and viral specimen collection market players are focused on launching the new microbiology laboratory, which has raised the demand for bacterial & specimen collection and created a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the global bacterial & viral specimen collection market. For instance, in January 2023, SGS, a company focused on manufacturing and developing testing and inspection material, announced the launch and start of the new laboratory facilities for microbiology testing in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S., named Biosafety Level-2 microbiology lab. The Biosafety Level-2 microbiology lab delivers a wide range of microbial testing facilities and services to clients of hand sanitizer and antibacterial hand soap manufacturing industries. Therefore, the launch of the new microbiology laboratory has increased the demand for bacterial & specimen collection kits.

Product Insights

The bacterial specimen collection held the dominating share of the bacterial & specimen collection market in 2023 on account of increasing approval of the product by the regulatory bodies for import and export.

  • For instance, in December 2023, HiMedia Laboratories Private Limited, a bioscience company, revealed the approval of the license from Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) for importing NG-Test CARBA 5 kit from NG Biotech, a France-based biotechnology company.

Bacterial and Viral Specimen Collection Market Share, By Product , 2023 (%)

The viral specimen collection segment has witnessed the fastest growth in the year 2023 on account of the increasing launch of the new viral specimen transportation media.

  • For instance, in March 2022, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., a company focused on manufacturing analytical instruments, announced the launch of the viral transport medium named the ‘InhibiSURE Viral Inactivation Medium’ formula. The InhibiSURE Viral Inactivation Medium’ assists in the collection and rapid inactivation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, stabilizes viral RNA at ambient temperature for transportation, and is utilized in in-vitro diagnostic testing procedures. Through the use of a non-hazardous formulation, the InhibiSURE Viral Inactivation Medium quickly renders the SARS-CoV-2 virus inactive, allowing us to facilitate a secure and effective approach for collecting and transporting samples.

Application Insights

The diagnosis segment held the largest share of the global bacterial and viral specimen collection market in 2023. The increasing prevalence of viral infectious diseases is estimated to fuel the growth of the diagnosis segment over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2024, the World Health Organization, an intergovernmental organization, claimed that the number of patients' lives lost due to viral hepatitis is increasing. 1.3 million deaths annually are caused by hepatitis, making it the second most common infectious cause of death worldwide, right behind tuberculosis, which is the ranks first infectious killer.

Bacterial and Viral Specimen Collection Market Share, By Application, 2023 (%)

The research, which was presented at the World Hepatitis Summit, emphasizes that testing and treatment coverage rates have stagnated in spite of improved diagnostic and treatment instruments and falling product costs. However, if quick action is taken, achieving the World Health Organization (WHO) elimination target by 2030 should still be possible. According to the same source, it was estimated that on an everyday basis, 3500 people become victims of death globally due to hepatitis C and hepatitis B infections.

End User Insights

The hospitals & clinics segment held the largest share of the global bacterial and viral specimen collection market in 2023. The increase in new disease breakouts has raised the demand for bacterial & viral specimen collection in hospitals & clinics. For instance, in May 2024, the International Health Regulations (IHR) National Focal Point (NFP), a national office or center for India, reported to the World Health Organization an incidence of human infection with avian influenza A(H9N2) virus diagnosed in a hospital of West Bengal state in India. Due to the youngster's ongoing acute respiratory distress, repeated high-grade fever, and abdominal cramps, the patient was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (ICU) of a nearby hospital on February 1, 2024.

Bacterial and Viral Specimen Collection Market Share, By End-use, 2023 (%)

Viral pneumonia-induced post-infectious bronchiolitis was the diagnosis made for the patient. After the first case in 2019, this is the second case of avian influenza A(H9N2) in humans that the World Health Organization has been informed from India. After making a full recovery, the child was released from the hospital. A human infection brought on by a novel influenza A virus subtype is considered an occurrence with a high potential impact on public health and needs to be reported to the World Health Organization (WHO).
