The Saudi Arabian Food Safety Testing Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.94% in the forecast period to reach USD405.88 million by 2027. The increasing prevalence of food-borne diseases and growing consumer awareness about consuming quality food items and food safety are the key factors driving the demand for the Saudi Arabian Food Safety Testing Market. Also, advancements in food safety testing technology and stringent regulations focusing on maintaining food quality are expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the Saudi Arabian Food Safety Testing Market in the next five years.



Food testing is an important process as it ensures that the food is fit for consumption purposes. The concerned food safety authorities ensure that the food undergoes a thorough testing process and examine the food quality and declare its edibility. Consumption of unfit food or lower quality food leads to food-borne diseases like diarrhea and meningitis. Fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain are the common symptoms observed after getting affected by food-borne diseases. Growing food requirements bolstered the need for advanced food testing techniques to increase testing accuracy and reduce the testing process time.

The Saudi Arabian Food Safety Testing Market is segmented into contaminants, technology, food tested, company, and regional distribution. Based on the contaminants, the market is divided into pathogens, pesticides, mycotoxin, allergens, GMO’s, and others. Pathogens dominated the market in 2021 by holding the largest market share of 25.31% and the segment is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. In food products, the presence of microbial pathogens, such as bacteria, food allergens and adulterants, environmental toxins, viruses, drug residue, and agricultural chemicals, is harmful for consumption and can give rise to food-borne diseases. The advent of advanced food safety testing technologies to detect the presence of pathogens is expected to boost the Saudi Arabian Food Safety Testing Market growth in the forecast period.
