Legionella Testing Report Scope & Overview:

In 2022, The Legionella Testing Market size amounted to USD 278.15 Million & is estimated to reach USD 566.55 Million by 2030 and increase at a compound annual growth rate of 9.3% between 2023 and 2030.

The Legionella testing market refers to the industry segment focused on the testing and analysis of water systems for the presence of Legionella bacteria. Legionella is a bacterium that can cause a serious respiratory illness called Legionnaires' disease when people inhale contaminated water droplets or mist. It can also lead to a milder flu-like illness called Pontiac fever. Legionella bacteria are commonly found in natural water sources like rivers and lakes, but they can proliferate in human-made water systems such as cooling towers, hot tubs, water storage tanks, plumbing systems, and other water distribution systems. These systems provide a conducive environment for Legionella growth if proper maintenance and disinfection procedures are not followed. The Legionella testing market involves various methods and technologies to detect and quantify the presence of Legionella bacteria in water samples. These methods can include culture-based techniques, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), nucleic acid-based methods, immunological assays, and more. The goal of testing is to monitor the microbial quality of water systems, identify potential sources of Legionella contamination, and ensure that appropriate measures are taken to prevent outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease.

IMPACT OF RUSSIAN UKRAINE WAR

The Ukrainian government attempted to halt this flow by dumping water from other Ukrainian reservoirs along the Dnipro River in order to sustain Kakhovka, but that was only a temporary fix. The situation at the reservoir exemplifies Russia's rising effect on Ukraine's water supplies. corrosion has harmed the water delivery system due to the salty water, The United Nations warned earlier this year that the fighting had destroyed Ukraine's water system. It is estimated that over 18 million Ukrainians would require water, sanitation, and hygiene assistance by 2023.

Legionnaires' disease is a serious form of pneumonia induced by contact with Legionella bacteria. It spreads by minute droplets of Legionella-infected water and can be transferred through drinking water, swimming pools, and cooling towers in air conditioning systems. Those who smoke, are 48 or older or have compromised immune systems are more vulnerable to the infection. In this war legionella testing market has increased by 4-5% because lots of Ukraine people are storing the water.

IMPACT OF ONGOING RECESSION

The most sensitive Legionella test kits contain detection values of 100 CFU per mL for water testing and 200 CFU per ml in a swab sample. Ideal for nations with stricter action levels and industries where Legionella infection risk is high. Legionella pneumophila sg1 antigen is detected in water samples and biofilms by simple Legionella test kits, which is the species that causes over 88% of Legionnaires' disease cases.  The findings are given in 23-25 minutes, are quite accurate, and have an 82% recovery rate. By incorporating Hydro sense into your water management programme, you will have real-time awareness of the presence of Legionella while doing water quality tests. In the ongoing recession, the market of legionella is increasing its services up to 2-3%.

14. Conclusion

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.
