The heavy metal testing market is estimated to be valued at USD 2.53 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 3.65 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.6% from 2017. The market is driven by factors such as the establishment of stringent regulations by developed as well as emerging countries due to increasing food product recalls and cases of illness & hospitalizations caused by heavy metal contaminated food & water. The growth in the market is also attributed to the growth in the packaged food industry leading to increase in packaging induced heavy metals.

Factors such as lack of affordability of the high costs of testing methods and lack of harmonization in regulations & stakeholders across various regions are restraining market growth.

The arsenic segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR among all heavy metal types from 2017 to 2022. Increasing occurrences of arsenic in various food additives is fueling the market growth. The element exists in both inorganic and organic forms, where inorganic arsenic compounds such as arsenic trichloride are considered to be extremely toxic because of their higher levels of carcinogenesis.

ICP-MS & OES technology provides assurance of reliability, quality, and faster test results, which in turn drives its market. A plasma source is used in this technique for atomization of the sample for spectrometry. The sample, on reaching the plasma source, is quickly dried, vaporized, and energized using collisional excitation at a high temperature. The elements can be analyzed with detection limits at or below the part per trillion (ppt).

The global heavy metal testing market, by water, is categorized into drinking water, waste water, and industrial water. Globally, the demand for heavy metal-free water for industrial and drinking purposes has rapidly increased, thereby increasing the need for heavy metal testing of wastewater, industrial water, and drinking water. This is expected to increase the demand for heavy metal testing, globally.

The European region dominated the heavy metal testing market in 2016. The market in North America is driven by the growth in the US market, as it is a large producer, importer, and exporter of different types of food products. The US has been implementing various regulations to certify and ensure the quality and safety of food from chemical threats.

The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of heavy metal testing in the Asia Pacific region is driven by increasing export activities, which need to follow the stringency of rules & regulations enforced by different countries and regions. Food security standards are getting stringent year-on-year to ensure safer supply of food to individuals in local and foreign countries. Since countries such as China, India, and Australia are large exporters of food products to developed countries of North America & Europe, which are cautious about the quality of products imported from the Asia Pacific region, the governments of these exporting countries have enforced various regulations in place for consumers, producers, and regulators. Japanese companies are constantly innovating to match their national standards to international levels to gain a strong position for their food products in the global market. Japanese food testing laboratories have been constantly registering patents for developing technologies to detect heavy metals.

The global market for heavy metal testing has grown exponentially in the last few years. The market is estimated to be valued at USD 2.53 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 3.65 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of around 7.6% from 2017. Emerging economies such as India, China, Japan, South Africa, and Brazil are the potential primary markets of the industry. Factors such as increasing heavy metal pollution in water due to industrial discharge, implementation of stringent regulations, and growth in the packaged food industry leading to increase in packaging induced heavy metals are the major driving factors for this market. Increasing international trade activities helps to drive the growth of the heavy metal testing industry.

The heavy metal testing market for food, based on heavy metal type, is segmented into arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and others which include aluminum, thallium, tin, antimony, barium, copper, chromium, iron, nickel, selenium, and zinc. The arsenic segment dominated the market with the largest share in 2016 since arsenic is frequently used in various food additives. This is followed by cadmium testing in food which is conducted because cadmium is another major heavy metal present in most cereals, fruits, vegetables, meat, and fish. This metal contaminant is found at the highest levels in the offal of mammals & mussels, oysters, and scallops. Inhalation of cadmium through food material is lower (5%) compared to inhalation through fumes, dust, and cigarettes (90%).

The heavy metal testing market for food, based on technology, is segmented into ICP-MS & OES, Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS), and others which include volumetric, HPLC with ICP, and other spectroscopy techniques. The ICP-MS & OES segment dominated the market in 2016 and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. ICP-MS & OES technologies have various advantages over AAS such as lower detection limits and faster test results by automation.

The heavy metal testing market, based on sample, is segmented into food, water, and blood & other samples. The food segment includes meat, poultry, and seafood; dairy products; processed food; fruits & vegetables; cereals & grains; nuts, seeds, and spices; and others comprising dietary supplements, food additives, and food ingredients. The water segment includes drinking water, waste water, and industrial water. Blood & other samples segment comprise cellular samples such as blood, urine, serum, and saliva samples. The water sample segment dominated the market in 2016 whereas, the blood & other samples segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR due to growing heavy metal levels in food & water.

The North American region is projected to dominate the heavy metal testing market by 2022. The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period since the demand in countries such as Japan and China is increasing due to growing international trade from these countries and the high concentration of heavy metals in agricultural soil here. Other factors responsible for the growth of the Asia Pacific market are the emerging economies and growing R&D activities for launching new technologies.

Heavy metal testing by advanced technologies involves high costs of energy & power, which increases the capital investment. The equipment cost and the cost of high-end technologies are high. Increased focus on R&D activities, coupled with the minimum requirements for accuracy and reliability of readings, is increasing the price of instruments.

Expansions & investments, new product, service, & technology launches, acquisitions, agreements, collaborations, joint ventures, and partnerships are the key strategies adopted by market players to ensure their growth in the market. The market is dominated by players such as SGS (Switzerland), Eurofins (Luxembourg), Intertek (UK), TÜV SÜD (Germany), ALS Limited (Australia), and Merieux NutriSciences (US). Other major players in the market include LGC Group (UK), AsureQuality (New Zealand), Microbac Laboratories (US), EMSL Analytical (US), IFP Institut Für Produktqualität (Germany), and OMIC USA (US).
