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.



The U.S. Market is Estimated at $3.9 Billion in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach $1.6 Billion by 2026


The Food Safety Testing market in the U.S. is estimated at US$3.9 Billion in the year 2021. China, the world`s second largest economy, is forecast to reach a projected market size of US$1.6 Billion by the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 7.3% over the analysis period. Among the other noteworthy geographic markets are Japan and Canada, each forecast to grow at 5.1% and 5.3% respectively over the analysis period. Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 5.6% CAGR. Global market for food safety testing is led by developed economies such as Europe and North America. The continuous rise in incidence of food contamination, strict regulations pertaining to food safety and access to advanced food testing labs are all contributing to the leadership of developed economies in the market. Developed economies are also making enormous investments into developing advanced food safety testing technologies. Rapidly changing international food trade policies, increased need to comply with various food safety regulations, and the need to prevent outbreak of foodborne illnesses and other food-associated threats are driving food companies in developing nations to adopt measures as per food safety and trade regulations of major importing nations.

Chemical & Nutritional Testing Segment to Reach $4.2 Billion by 2026


Chemical contaminants or pathogens are emerging as leading causes of foodborne illnesses. The adoption of stringent food safety regulations in various countries aimed at restricting the presence of chemical contaminants ensures steady growth opportunities in the segment. In the global Chemical & Nutritional Testing segment, USA, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the 4.9% CAGR estimated for this segment. These regional markets accounting for a combined market size of US$2.6 Billion in the year 2020 will reach a projected size of US$3.7 Billion by the close of the analysis period. China will remain among the fastest growing in this cluster of regional markets. Led by countries such as Australia, India, and South Korea, the market in Asia-Pacific is forecast to reach US$318 Million by the year 2026, while Latin America will expand at a 5.7% CAGR through the analysis period.
