The global antimicrobial susceptibility testing market was valued at $3,040.00 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $4,736.03 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.8% from 2021 to 2030. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) is a method for detecting which antimicrobials a certain organism or group of organisms is susceptible to. Susceptibility occurs when microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi are unable to live in the presence of one or more antimicrobial medicines. It is a laboratory approach for evaluating which antimicrobial therapy is most efficient against microorganisms. It is used to evaluate which antimicrobial prevents the growth of bacteria, fungi, and other germs that cause illness. After microorganisms that cause infection, such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses, have been isolated in a culture of the specimen, susceptibility testing is performed on them.

Antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) is carried out to determine the possible efficacy of various antibiotics on bacteria and/or if bacteria have evolved resistance to specific antibiotics, as well as for antifungal and antiviral species. The results of this test can be used to help choose the drug(s) most likely to be helpful in treating an illness. They are able to obtain antibiotics.

AST assists in the evaluation of treatment services provided by hospitals, clinics, and national infectious disease control and prevention programs. The testing determines a bacterium's, fungi's, or viral strain's susceptibility to a panel of antibiotics, antifungals, and antivirals. The bacterium is exposed to these antimicrobials, and the test determines whether it will grow in their presence. This information is given to physicians in the form of the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC), which is a measure of a microorganism's susceptibility or resistance to an antibiotic.

The demand for antimicrobial susceptibility testing has been on a rise due to increasing prevalence of infectious disease epidemics such as Neisseria meningitides, Shigella, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and Salmonella serotype typhi mainly due to lack of water supply, lack of sanitation and unhygienic conditions are also boosting demand for antimicrobial susceptibility testing kits. As a result, medical practitioners have realized the need of performing antibiotic susceptibility tests (ASTs), and they are now a required component of clinical microbiology laboratories and is anticipated to drive the market

In addition, over use and misuse in consumption of antibiotics leading to antimicrobial resistances (AMR), and increased use of antimicrobial susceptibility testing by biopharmaceutical, biotechnological, and pharmaceutical companies is a major factor for the significant growth of the antimicrobial susceptibility testing market, owing to a growing emphasis on drug discovery, the emergence of new diseases, as well as the increasing incidences of chronic disorders and the rising overall population is expected to propel the market growth of mouth ulcers treatment

Furthermore, the rising prevalence of hospital acquired infections (HAIs), a rise in patient population base (particularly in developing countries), and increased government awareness to combat antimicrobial resistance are likely to drive the market even further. Testing also aids in the evaluation of treatment services provided by hospitals, clinics, and national infectious disease control and prevention programs on a larger scale. As a result of changes in microbial genes, researchers have recently required to conduct continual monitoring operations for resistance patterns.

The antimicrobial susceptibility testing market is gaining interest from healthcare businesses due to an increase in demand for automated goods such as AST cards, AST panels, and high-tech automated systems that give higher accuracy, faster processing, and improved work flow. This leads to a rise in the use of automated systems in pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms, providing a huge potential for the industry to continue growing.

In addition, opportunities in untapped, emerging markets with high potential, due to improved healthcare infrastructure, increase in unmet healthcare needs and rise in prevalence of antimicrobial resistances in populations.
