Food Irradiation Market - Size, Share, Trends, and Forecast to 2026

Food Irradiation Market - Size, Share, Trends, and Forecast to 2026

Food irradiation is a technology, which improves shelf life and safety of food by reducing or eliminating microorganism and insects present in the food. The process exposes food and food packaging to ionizing radiation. Food irradiation has been approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Food irradiation is a process in which gamma rays, electron beam, and X-rays are used to sterilize, disinfect, and preserve food. Irradiation helps to reduce food spoilage by insects, bacteria, and parasites.
Market Dynamics
Prevention against food borne diseases is a major factor leading to increasing demand for food irradiation technology. The technology eliminates bacteria and other microorganism, which cause diseases such as food poisoning and other illness. For instance, according to World Health Organization, globally 600 million or almost 1 in 10 people in the world, fall ill after consuming contaminated food in 2015. Of these, 420 000 people die, including 125 000 children under the age of 5 years.
However, lack of consumer awareness about food irradiation and high cost of food irradiation method are major factors restraining growth of the market.
Asia Pacific held significant market share in the global food irradiation market due to increasing consumer acceptance and regulations and policies related to consumption of irradiated food. For instance in 2005, China Ministry of Agriculture approved food irradiation in China for meat, spices, fruits, and vegetables. In addition to this, in food irradiation technology it kill or destroy micro-organisms such as viruses, insects and bacteria. It prevent germination and sprouting of onions, potatoes and garlic.
