The global antimicrobial susceptibility testing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6.1% from 2019 to 2027 to reach at $5.09 billion by 2027.

Susceptibility testing is used in the determination of the antimicrobials inhibiting the growth of the bacteria or fungi causing a specific infection. The aim of antimicrobial susceptibility testing is to predict the in vivo success or failure of antibiotic therapy. Tests performed measure the growth response of an isolated organism to a particular drug or drugs. The results of this test help a healthcare practitioner to determine the most effective drug for treatment of infections. The global burden of infectious diseases is resulting into growing need for susceptibility testing and scientists are striving to develop broad spectrum antibiotics and check microbial susceptibility against them.
