OTTAWA — According to Precedence Research, the global food safety testing market size was valued at $17.43 billion in 2019 and will expand to more than $32.21 billion by 2027.

Why Food Safety Testing?

Food safety testing is a technical process that involves production, management and storage of food items to inhibit foodborne illnesses. It is achieved to administer the quality of food items and avoid undesirable incidents of food borne infections, poisoning and toxicity. Food safety regulations have been executed firmly on account of swelling cases of food adulteration and poisoning. Testing of food is imperative and essential to authenticate that food safety controls are vigorously involved, and in specific situations, can even serve as precautionary measures. The upsurge in global food production influences the development of the food safety testing market, with cumulative numbers of food safety controls in every stage from raw material procurement until the food items approach customers, who seek for accredited certification when they procure food items to safeguard the safety of food. 

Growing Factors

  • Escalating sale of processed and packaged food in developing and developed nations
  • Intensifying need for quality tests for unprocessed and processed meats
  • Upsurge in the frequencies of foodborne infections that have led to the employment of stern food safety regulations
  • Increasing the fruits and vegetables testing demand

Regional Snapshots

Europe occupied prevalent revenue share in the global food safety testing market with more than 35.3% share in 2020. High pervasiveness of food-related aversions amongst users in the region is anticipated to lead to an amplified confidence on safety testing measures. Likewise, implementation of rigorous regulatory standards in the region is anticipated to lead to enormous market revenue in the region. Further, Asia Pacific is projected to list notable gains due to attempts commenced by concerned agencies concerning the safety of eatable items. The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India capitalized about $72.3 million to reinforce food testing infrastructure, which is similarly estimated to trigger the growth of food testing market in this economy.

Key Players & Strategies

Many manufacturers in the marketplace are concentrating on preparing for the growing requirements of the consumers, such as improving the quality shelf life of beverages such as energy drinks, soft drinks and fruit juices. Also, progression in the usage of concentrates and preservatives in milk and milk products is likely to result in augmented safety testing measures.

According to the study, the global food safety testing marketplace is an extremely fragmented market with the existence of numerous global and local companies. Foremost market players deliver a comprehensive range of analytical services for the testing of finished products and raw materials. Companies also deliver microbiological testing of food products residue, shelf-life testing, contaminant analysis and other services.
