The global efficacy testing market is projected to reach USD 333 million by 2025 from USD 261 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period.
The growth of this market is mainly driven by the increasing use of surface disinfectants and preservatives in pharma, biopharma, and cosmetics industries for contamination control and product stability; growing preference for outsourcing efficacy testing; and the rising adoption of the QbD approach.
By method type, the traditional test method holds the largest share of the antimicrobial/preservative testing market
In the traditional test method, a sample of the pharmaceutical or cosmetic product is inoculated with a microbial suspension of a population of a regulatory recognized key microorganism. This is followed by sampling and the determination of the number of colony-forming units (CFU) and the microbial survival rate with the help of aerobic plate count, surface spread, or membrane filtration techniques after a suitable incubation time. As these test methods are in accordance with the guidelines and standards set by regulatory authorities, they are widely used by service providers.
Asia Pacific: The fastest-growing region in the efficacy testing market
The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, mainly due to the fast-growing pharmaceutical industry in this region, favorable government policies, and the increasing number of pharmaceutical companies establishing manufacturing facilities in APAC countries.
North America: The largest share of the efficacy testing market
North America accounted for the largest share of the efficacy testing market. Factors such as the presence of a well established pharmaceutical industry in the region, the high R&D expenditure, a strong presence of major service providers, and rising outsourcing of analytical testing (including efficacy testing) by pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies in the region are the major factors driving the market growth.
