The Asia Pacific food pathogen testing market is likely to account for a remarkable share of the global food pathogen testing market during the forecast period. One of the factors that is driving the Asia Pacific food pathogen testing market is the surge in foodborne diseases outbreaks. The foodborne illness, colloquially referred to as food poisoning, is any type of illness which results from the spoilage of food, due to pathogenic viruses, bacteria, or parasites that have the capability of contaminating the food. There is an increase of the number of people who are elderly and disproportionately susceptible to the serious outcomes of foodborne illness worldwide. Foodborne diseases comprise a wide range of illnesses ranging from diarrhea to cancer. Some of the gastrointestinal issues can produce neurological, immunological, and gynecological symptoms. Changes in food microorganisms can lead to the constant evolution of pathogens, development of resistance to antibiotics, and change in the virulence of the known pathogens. Most of the people remain exposed to the risks of contaminated food in commercial foodservice settings due to poor hygiene.
In terms of food type, the meat and poultry segment led the Asia Pacific food pathogen testing market in 2019. The necessity to improve or maintain the product quality due to growing consumer awareness and health consciousness drives the demand for food pathogen testing. Developing regulations attributed to increasing food pathogen outbreaks through poultry, meat, and seafood products amplify the segment growth. The most important pathogens associated with meat and poultry are E. coli, campylobacter, and Salmonella. Unhygienic conditions and improper handling during skinning and de-feathering results in contamination, thereby supporting this segment growth. Escherichia coli colonizes the intestines of animals that can contaminate muscle meat at slaughter. Salmonella is found in the intestinal tracts of livestock, poultry, and other warm-blooded animals. The egg is also a potential carrier of pathogens.
