The global dairy testing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.92% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).

Key Highlights

  • The global dairy industry, especially in the emerging economies, requires established food safety programs that combine strong controls with vigorous surveillance. Commercial dairy products, such as cultured dairy products (kefir, cultured buttermilk, sour cream, and yogurt), cheeses (soft cheese products, semi-hard, hard, and extra-hard cheeses), processed cheeses, butters, buttercream, dried milk, and ice creams among others are required to be tested for microbial contamination.
  • Various global companies have developed their own patented technologies, either through their own R&D teams or through collaborations, like the China Mengniu Dairy Company Limited. The company revealed that it dedicated its R&D on the testing technique, participated in 5 researching topics, achieved 13 national standards, published 136 papers on core journals, and acquired 147 national patents on the testing technique.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Incidences of Pathogen Contamination in Dairy Foods

Both raw milk and pasteurized milk can get contaminated during bottling, shipment, and storage. Equipment failures and post-pasteurization contamination are two prominent causes of contamination of pasteurized milk. Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Campylobacter are four prominent sources of pathogens in raw milk.Raw milk has been found to be a major source of bacterial pathogens, leading to illnesses in human beings and even death in some cases. The regulatory bodies across the world have monitored and even regulated the consumption of raw milk, stating that the risk of raw milk consumption far outweighs the overall perceived benefits. Regions within the United States, like Vermont, had regulations pertaining to the consumption of raw milk i.e. Vermont H.125. However, it failed to assure the microbiological safety of unpasteurized milk.

The same regulations (i.e. measurement of coliforms level in milk) were then applied to pasteurized milk, and were proved to be valid, as the regulations were specifically designed to inactivate pathogens posing risks to public health.

Asia Pacific To Witness Highest Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

The Asia-Pacific dairy testing market is driven by the growing incidence of food-borne diseases and the proactive efforts from various governments to put in place a robust food safety and regulatory framework. China is the largest growing market for food safety testing in Asia-Pacific.

Food safety incidents have received significant media attention. The growing number of food safety issues reported over the last decade in China has compelled the authorities to take action for ensuring food safety. The Chinese dairy sector has been remarkable in setting-up a broader safety consciousness by utilizing molecular methods that are reliable and effective. Also, food contamination events, including outbreaks of food poisoning are a major health problem within Australia. The imported food products have increasingly come under the regulatory scanner. The pathogen analysis in the Australian market is growing primarily due to higher cases ofE.colicontamination.SalmonellaandCampylobacterare some of the other pathogens that are commonly tested. Companies in the region are embarking on developing international standard laboratory testing facilities especially in the countries, such as China and India as they are expected to offer lucrative market opportunities.

Competitive Landscape

The most active companies in the global dairy testing market are, SGS Group, Bureau Veritas, Intertek, Eurofins, Merieux Nutrisciences, Neogen, and others. Companies are marking their presence in the region by pro-active participation in several events such as those associated with food safety, general health and health awareness.
