The worldwide microbiological testing of the water industry was estimated at USD 1.27 billion in 2019, according to a Reports and Data review, and is forecast to hit USD 2.16 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.8 percent. Microbiological water research includes the detection and identification of microorganisms found in water through biological, biochemical or chemical methods. The research process requires sampling, filtration, cultivation and incubation to obtain the final results. The techniques also assist in assessing the amount of pollutants in a water sample. Such tests are primarily used for drinking and industrial water monitoring and are most commonly used by the pharmaceutical, bio-pharmaceutical and food industries.

The rising prevalence of waterborne diseases such as typhoid, dysentery, and cholera plays a major role in market stimulation. According to World Health Organization (WHO) approximately 11 to 20 million of person across the globe suffer from typhoid every year and in the future, the number is projected to increase, which will fuel demand growth in turn. Almost 1.7 billion people in the world are unable to access potable water. Over the forecast period, this market demand and supply gap is expected to be one of the key opportunities for the market.

Over the last few years, growing health consciousness and promoting government efforts to ensure water protection for both consumption and industrial purposes have given the sector a boost. In addition, the increasing contamination of water due to rising urban waste and climate change is a serious cause of concern that has increased the requirements for water testing over the years.

North America held the largest share in the global microbiological water market testing in 2019 on the basis of the region, and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.7 percent. The robust research infrastructure and the presence of some major water testing companies are boosting the growth of the region's market.

During the forecast period, the Asia Pacific segment is expected to record the highest CAGR of 7.7 percent. Favorable government initiatives, the advancement of industrialization in emerging economies such as India, China, and food industry developments are key drivers that are expected to fuel the growth of the market enormously.
