• The reagents product segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The high growth of reagents segment is attributed to the high prevalence of infectious diseases across major markets (resulting in a growing number of clinical diagnostic procedures), growing trend of reagent rental agreements along with instrument sales, and an increasing number of life science researches in the field of specific reagents for targeted infectious disease diagnosis & treatment, especially across emerging countries.
• The instruments product segment is further subsegmented into laboratory instruments (incubators, gram stainers, autoclave sterilizers, bacterial colony counters, microbial air samplers, blood culture counters, microbial culture systems, anaerobic culture systems, petri dish fillers, and other laboratory instruments) and microbiology analyzers (molecular diagnostic instruments, advanced microscopes, and mass spectrometers). The microbiology analyzer segment is expected to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period.
• The reagents product segment is further subsegmented into pathogen-specific kits and general reagents. The pathogen-specific kits segment is expected to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period. On the basis of disease area, the clinical microbiology market is segmented into respiratory diseases, bloodstream infections (BSIs), gastrointestinal (GI) diseases, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), urinary tract infections (UTIs), periodontal diseases, and other diseases (including cardiovascular disease, central nervous system infections, connective tissue & joint diseases, and skin diseases, among others).
• On the basis of end user, the clinical microbiology market is segmented into hospitals and diagnostic centers, custom lab service providers, and academic and research institutes. The custom lab service providers segment is estimated to witness the highest growth during the forecast period owing to the continuous outsourcing of drug testing procedures to laboratory service providers by pharmaceutical companies, procedural benefits offered by advanced molecular technology-based instruments (such as PCR and NGS) in drug discovery and researches, increasing number of microbiology-based clinical trials, and the growing number of custom lab service providers across major markets.
