Mycoplasmas are simplest self-replicating and smallest bacteria belonging to mollicute genus. Myoplasmas are naturally resistant to antibiotics as they lack cell wall structure around their cell membranes. Due to the small genome size, they cannot synthesize amino acids, nucleic acids and cell wall and thus they exist as parasites in host organisms like animals, plants, humans and insects. Mycoplasma testing is and important process at various phases of biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical product development including cell banks, raw materials, unprocessed bulk harvest materials, viral seed stocks and final products. Mycoplasma contamination often goes undetected as they do not cause constantly noticeable alterations like change in turbidity, pH change etc.

The demand for mycoplasma testing market is driven by strong growth witnessed by pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry across the globe. Also, cell culture contamination with mycoplasma is major concern. Increasing investments in life science research, need to control cell culture contamination, surge in R&D expenditure are factors that boost the market growth. Presence of large and well established market players may act as a barrier for new entrants. Stringent regulatory requirements, time consuming approval procedures, lack of skilled professionals and high degree of consolidation may act as restraining factors for the market growth. Increasing preference for outsourcing services for mycoplasma testing is expected to bring new growth opportunities for market players in mycoplasma testing.

Based on product, global mycoplasma testing market is bifurcated instruments, services and kits & reagents. Kits and reagents segment is sub segmented into standards & controls, stains, elimination kits & reagent, nucleic acid detection, PCR assay and other kits & reagents. Kits and reagents segment held largest market share in 2018. Continuous and frequent use of kits and reagents attribute to strong commercial sales and thus large market share. Services segment is expected to exhibit highest market growth in the coming years.

Based on techniques market is segmented into enzymatic methods, microbial culture techniques, DNA staining, indirect assay, direct assay, ELISA and PCR. PCR technique segment held largest market share in 2018. Speed, accuracy and flexibility of PCR technique in life science research has led to greater adoption and thus attributes to the largest market share.

The application segment is divided into include end of production cells testing, virus testing, cell line testing and other applications. Largest application segment for mycoplasma testing market in 2018 was cell line testing. Increasing drug development activities by major pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies has resulted in greater adoption of mycoplasma which is also expected to register highest growth over the forecast period. Surge in use of cell line testing for biopharmaceutical production and research application drive the demand for mycoplasma testing in cell line.

Research institutes, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, cell banks, contract research organizations (CROs), and others are end users of the market. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies accounted for largest market share in 2018. Increasing R&D investments and surge in biomolecule development attribute to the large market share.

North America dominated the global mycoplasma testing market in 2018. Developed biopharmaceutical industry, presence of major biopharmaceutical manufacturers, developed R&D infrastructure, increasing investments are factors driving the market growth in this region. In terms of revenue share Europe was second largest regional market. Presence of developed infrastructure, increasing demand for biopharmaceutical research, government initiatives to support R&D are some of factors that boost market growth in this region. Latin America is expected to exhibit noticeable growth over the forecast period. Asia Pacific region will exhibit rapid growth for mycoplasma testing market in the years to come. Focus of contract research organizations on offering outsourcing services to capture growth opportunities in developing nations in Asia Pacific, surge in biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical research, government initiatives to biopharmaceutical research are factors promoting mycoplasma testing market growth in Asia Pacific. Lack of funds and developed infrastructure may attribute to sluggish growth in Middle East and Africa.
