Global Food Safety Testing Market to Reach $24.4 Billion by 2026
Food safety testing assists in maintaining quality of food products, in terms of their appearance, ingredients and taste. Rising concerns over food and water safety and tightening environmental regulations are raising the need for testing contaminants, thereby generating strong demand for food safety diagnostics. The need to prevent food contamination and reduced incidence of foodborne illnesses is a major driving force for market growth. Lack of proper handling measures, inappropriate storage conditions and under cooking are major reasons for contamination of food products. This coupled with the growing need to adopt quality measures in preserved foods, dried processed products, bakery foods, ready-to-eat products and infant foods is fueling growth. The expanding processed foods industry due to increase in disposable incomes and busy lifestyles, growing food and beverage industry, and strong uptick seen in the foodservice industry are enhancing focus onto food safety testing.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Food Safety Testing estimated at US$17.4 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$24.4 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.8% over the analysis period. Microbiological Testing, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to record a 5.6% CAGR and reach US$7.1 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Residues & Contamination Testing segment is readjusted to a revised 6% CAGR for the next 7-year period. The microbiological testing method makes use of molecular, chemical, biological and biochemical products, is utilized for detection of microorganisms in various food products. Rapid microbiological testing is increasingly finding application in the food industry, as food companies, disillusioned with existing quality control methods, resort to automated and rapid tests. Residues & contamination testing is another major category, and benefits from its ability to provide extensive quality and safety checks for detecting over-usage of chemicals like herbicides and pesticides. With the demand rising for checking contamination of poultry and meat products, the market for residues and contamination testing is witnessing growth.

Developed economies are also making enormous investments into developing advanced food safety testing technologies.
