Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing is performed on a regular basis to ensure that antibiotics are effectively used. It determines the lowest amounts of novel or existing antimicrobial medicines that inhibit the bacterium under research from growing in a consistent and detectable manner in specific test circumstances. It entails finding drug resistance in some of the most common ailments as well as determining the susceptibility of preferred treatments to certain infections.

Antimicrobial resistance occurs as a result of a misdiagnosis of an infectious disease, a lack of adequate treatment guidelines, and non-adherence to the treatment plan. Superbug infection thrives in primary healthcare facilities in both developed and developing nations. Antibiotic resistance is a hot topic among microbiologists, who are trying to figure out what causes it and how to avoid it. In addition, broad-spectrum antibiotics for the treatment of microbial infections are being developed.



  • Advancements in technology

  • Government efforts to detect and control antimicrobial-resistant species are becoming more widespread.

  • Drug misuse leads to the development of multidrug resistance.

  • Infectious diseases are rampant, and epidemics and epidemics are increasingly common.

  • Increased market support, research grants, and public-private partnerships


  • Automated ID/AST systems are extremely expensive.


  • Markets that are still developing

  • Initiatives to raise awareness about antimicrobial resistance and its management


  • Antimicrobial testing approvals are slowed by complex regulatory procedures.


As a result of this epidemic, access to customers to market and deploy automated AST systems (such as the Accelerate Pheno system, MicroScan WalkAway, and Sensitarian ARIS system) declined in March and the second quarter of 2020, as hospitals focused exclusively on COVID. -19 disease. Due to limited access to current and potential customers, market players have not been able to complete the sale of new AST systems and use previously sold systems, resulting in a slowdown in the growth of affordable testing services. Moreover, the market expects to recoup its losses in the fourth quarter of 2020.

By Product Type

Automated laboratory tools, antimicrobial Susceptibility testing equipment, culture and growth media, and materials make up the anti-bacterial testing industry. Slope test discs, MIC strips, and slope test plates are examples of antimicrobial test products. The AST market was full of products to test trends. The segment is projected to increase due to improved germ resistance, roll-out of new products, and increased acceptance of risk-testing discs in developing countries.

By Type

Antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and other susceptibility testing are the different types of antimicrobial susceptibility testing available. The antimicrobial susceptibility testing segment dominated the market. Overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics, as well as the advent of multidrug resistance, are responsible for the majority of this category. Medication resistance develops in bacteria as a result of the misuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics, necessitating better drug screening. The timely selection of the appropriate treatment therapy is aided by early availability of information on bacterial infections and their antibiotic susceptibility, which plays a key role in illness management.

By Method Type

Disk diffusion, agar dilution, ETEST, automated antimicrobial susceptibility testing tools, and genotypic approaches are the market segments for antimicrobial susceptibility testing. The automated antimicrobial susceptibility testing devices segment had the greatest proportion of the market among these approaches. Speed, precision, and the ability to provide qualitative and quantitative susceptibility results account for the majority of the segment's revenue. Furthermore, technical developments and increased R&D spending by key firms are fueling the segment's expansion.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
