Food Safety Testing Market by Food Tested (Meat & Poultry, Dairy, Processed Foods, and Fruits & Vegetables), Target Tested (Pathogens, Pesticides, GMOs, and Toxins), Technology (Traditional and Rapid), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“The food safety testing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.60% between 2017 and 2022.”
The global food safety testing market was valued at USD 12.01 billion in 2016, and is projected to reach a value of USD 18.54 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.60% from 2017. The food safety testing market is driven by the global rise in foodborne outbreaks, advancements in testing technologies, globalization of food supply, and stringent international food safety regulations. The lack of food control infrastructure & resources in developing countries and lack of awareness about food safety regulations among food manufacturers have been considered as the restraining factors for the market.
“Rapid technologies are projected form the faster-growing segment during the forecast period.”
One of the major drivers for the growth of rapid technologies is their multifunctional nature to offer time-efficient and flexible testing options to end users. The increasing significance of rapid technologies offering easy-to-use, efficient, and quick results has greatly enhanced their functionality. Incorporating rapid technologies provides their end users with increased quality and turnaround time for each test.
“GMOs are projected be the fastest-growing targets tested for food safety during the forecast period.”
One of the drivers for the growth of GMOs segment is the rise in consumer concerns about genetically modified organisms in food. Strict food regulations, globally, have made GMO testing a mandatory requirement in several countries. Also, consumers in developed countries such as the US demand more organic food and non-GMOs products, which will further drive the market for GMO testing.
“Asia Pacific is projected be the fastest-growing region for food safety testing during the forecast period.”
Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region from 2017 to 2022, due to its large market base for food & beverages, improved standards of living due to the rise in income levels, increased awareness about food safety, and growth in the number of food safety testing companies in the region.
