Meat Speciation Testing Market by Species (Bos Taurus, Sus Scrofa, Gallus Gallus, Equus Caballus, Ovis Aries), Technology (PCR, ELISA, Molecular Diagnostic), Form (Raw, Cooked, Processed), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“The meat speciation testing market projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.20%”
The meat speciation testing market is projected to reach 2,220.6 million by 2022 at a CAGR of 8.20% from 2016. The market is driven by factors such as increase in number of adulteration and food fraud cases, religious beliefs, compliance with labeling laws, and stringent regulations and consumer demand for certified products. Lack of food control systems, technology, infrastructure, and resources in developing countries are the major restraints for this market.
“Swine (Sus scrofa) is projected to be the largest segment in the meat speciation testing market by 2022”
The swine segment accounted for the largest market share in the meat speciation testing market, due to the increase in number of adulteration of swine meat with horse meat and chicken, which has led to a desire for increased quality control for meat products. Detection of undisclosed animal species in swine meat products is important to not only protect the consumers from fraud, but also to respect the religious beliefs and cultural preferences of the consumers.
“PCR segment led the market with the largest share in 2015”
PCR was the dominant technology used in meat speciation testing and the market for the same is projected to grow at a highest CAGR in the next five years. Significant growth in adoption of this technology for meat speciation testing can be attributed to drawbacks of the ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) technology; wherein DNA analysis is conducted by the technology for accurate determination of meat species in products even at 0.1% levels of detection. Another advantage of PCR technology is the automated approach to testing, which provides quick results, and aids the decision making process for product recalls, further distribution of meat products, and other related strategies) of related stakeholders.
“The raw form is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing segment by 2022”
The raw form is projected to be the largest and the fastest-growing segment. This is attributable to the fact that the domestic consumption of meat as well as the meat trade in raw form is very high, due to which the testing of meat in raw form is also the largest as well as the fastest-growing.
“Europe led the market with the largest share in 2015”
Europe was the largest meat speciation testing market in 2015. Increase in awareness, stringent food safety laws, and rise in meat trade are driving the meat speciation testing market in Europe. Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region. Growth in this region is driven by various rules & regulations implemented by different countries in the region. Food security standards are getting stringent year-on-year to ensure safer supply of food to individuals in local and foreign countries.
