Bio-Detection Business Opportunities

Check out our latest research on this topic: Nuclear and Bio-Chem Incidents: Decontamination Technologies and Global Market – 2011-2016

Over the next five years, Homeland Security Research Corporation (HSRC) forecasts that, led by the US, Germany, France, China, Japan and India, the cumulative global bio-detection market (systems, service and upgrades and R&D) will grow from $2.3 billion in 2009 to $4.9 billion in 2014 at a CAGR of 16%.

Bio-Detection Systems Market Share by Technology Generation – 2009 and 2014

With terrorist organizations posting secure “how-to” bio-agent production manuals to the Internet for download by select individuals, governments have an urgent need to upgrade their bio-defense infrastructure. As President Obama stated: “Just as we must guard against the spread of nuclear terrorism, it is time for a comprehensive effort to tackle bio-terror”. Meeting this challenge will require, among other things, shortening the bio-attack alarm response time at a reasonable cost of ownership.

HSRC’s analyses, forecasts and projected business opportunities are presented in its November 2009 report: Global Bio-Detection HLS-HLD Technologies and Markets, 2010 – 2014. With more than 320 pages, 93 tables and 134 figures, this report represents the comprehensive bio-detection market report.
