In 2017, CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) found traces of an herbicide named glyphosate, in nearly 30% of the samples tested for 3200 food products. The governmental agencies such as CFIA, EU and USDA consider glyphosate safe up to the limit of 1.3%. In 2013, horse meat scandal in the United Kingdom, where beef was found to be contaminated with horse meat, raised food safety issues among consumers as well as manufacturers. Consequently, the food industry started paying more attention to make their products, safer in the residue limit of foods.
The increased concern for pesticide and residue level in food products, growing demand for organic food products and increased need to meet food allergen claims on the label are various factors driving the residue testing market. As food trade is growing globally, there is an intense need for food products to follow international regulations. However, lack of awareness about regulatory standards among manufacturers is the restraining factor for the market. The demand for organic food products is growing in developing region, which offers opportunities for the market
Chromatography Technique to Lead the Pesticide Residue Test Market
The liquid, gas and GC-MS are conventional and reliable methods used for pesticide residue testing. The cost effective testing and high accuracy have dominated the market share among other technologies. Further, these methods are highly preferred in the developed region for residue and food allergen label claims identification. Based on test type, the residue testing market is segmented into technology type, application and geography. Further, the test type segment includes pesticides, heavy metals, food allergen, toxins, antibiotic residue and other residues. These residues are determined by using techniques such as chromatography, mass spectroscopy, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), PCR and other techniques. The chromatography holds the dominant market share, owing to the high demand for heavy metal, allergen and pesticides residue determination. By application type, the market is segmented into fruits & vegetables, dairy products, beverages, meat & sea foods, cereal, grains & pulses, nuts, seeds, spices & herbs and processed food.
The rigorously increasing food safety regulations in the countries, such as China and India, is providing an excellent opportunity for the residue testing market. The need for product safety, coupled with the regulatory requirement, has created a great opportunity for the residue testing market. Further, the companies, like Eurofins, have expanded their food testing labs in China to strengthen the market presence and grabbed opportunities, due to food scandals. North America and Europe dominates the residue testing market while Asia- Pacific is growing at a faster rate.
