Residue Testing Market by Type (Pesticides, Toxins, Heavy Metals, Allergens), Technology (Chromatography, Spectroscopy, Immunoassay), Food Tested (Meat & Poultry, Dairy Products, Processed Food, Fruits & Vegetables, Cereals) - Global Forecast to 2021

“Residue testing market projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4%”
The residue testing market is projected to reach USD 4.41 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2016. The market is driven by factors such as increase in outbreaks of chemical contamination in food processing industries, growth in allergic reactions among consumers, and implementation of stringent food safety regulations. The high growth potential in emerging markets and untapped regions provides new opportunities for market players.

“The pesticide residues segment expected to be the largest in the residue testing market by 2021”
The pesticide residues segment accounted for the largest market share and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to rise in health concerns and implementation of stringent food safety regulations. The increase in food trade and contamination of food with pesticides, especially in imported food products, has attracted the attention towards pesticide residue testing. It is followed by toxins, which is projected to remain the second-largest market by 2021.

“Chromatography technology led the market with the largest share in 2015”
Chromatography technology accounted for the largest share of the residue testing market in 2015. The importance of this technology is increasing due to its quick, accurate, and easy-to-use characteristics. The vital benefits of these methods for the detection of contaminants include speed, simplicity of operation, efficient analysis, and minimal labor for sample preparation. The stakeholders demand new emerging technologies for analytical testing and ensure certification denoting high quality of their products. This has been driving the market for chromatography in residue testing.

“Europe led the market with the largest share in 2015”
Europe was the largest residue testing market in 2015. Governing organizations present in the market have enforced various residue testing policies. The Asia-Pacific market is projected to be the fastest-growing market in the forecasted period.
