Global Legionella Testing Market to Reach About USD 394.9 Million by 2026, Aided by the Growing Awareness Regarding the Effects of Legionella

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Legionella Testing Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global market for legionella testing attained a value of about USD 246.1 million in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a value of approximately USD 394.9 million by 2026.

North America holds a significant share of the legionella testing industry owing to the growing awareness regarding the dangers of a legionella outbreak. The introduction of various policies regarding the testing of legionella in potential buildings by the United States and Canadian governments is also aiding the market growth. Moreover, the robust healthcare system in countries such as the United States and Canada is increasing the accessibility to legionella testing, which is propelling the market growth. In addition, the growing geriatric population in the region is more prone to Legionnaires’ disease, which is consequently surging the demand for its testing. In addition, the increasing cost-effectiveness of rapid tests such as PCR is escalating their adoption in the region, which is invigorating the industry growth, hence significantly contributing to the overall market for legionella testing.

Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO), one of the leading companies in the market, received AFNOR validation for its iQ-Check Legionella Aquadien DNA extraction short protocols in February 2021. This enables the company to become the first Legionella PCR method validated by a third party, including management of free DNA in the sample. The company provides a range of products for the quantification and detection of Legionella. The products comply with regulatory standards while allowing for risk management. They are suitable for testing water supply systems, hot water for sanitation, natural mineral water, water for human consumption, water for recreational activities, natural water, and biofilms, among others. Such developments are expected to augment the market growth in the upcoming years.
