Food safety products and testing refers to the testing of food in order to detect the presence of disease-causing organism or other harmful products in the food. They are majorly used in processed and ready-to-eat food products. On the basis of technology used, the Food Safety Products and Testing Market is classified into q-PCR-based testing and d- PCR-based testing. 

Global food safety products and testing market was valued at US$ 859.1 Million in 2021 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of  9.6% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

The rising prevalence of foodborne disease around the globe is expected to augment the market growth of food safety products and testing. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 600 million, almost 1 in 10 people in the world, fall ill after eating contaminated food and 420, 000 die every year. Diarrhoeal  diseases are the most common illnesses resulting from the consumption of contaminated food, causing 550 million people to fall ill and 230, 000 deaths every year.

Increasing use of pesticides in order to eliminate the pests which destroy the crop yield is expected to fuel the market growth. These pesticides are mainly used to enhance the yield of the crop but they also contain toxic chemicals and their overuse can cause various health issues such as Alzheimer, asthma, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and others. Consumption of food that has pesticide residues may lead to various chronic diseases such as cancers, diabetes, birth defects and others. Hence, food testing technologies are used to detect the presence of pesticide residue in the crop.

In terms of revenue, Europe is expected to dominate the market growth over the forecast period in the global  Food Safety Products and Testing Market. Europe region has numerous food safety issues including misuse of antibiotics, hormones and steroids in farm animals. To combat such issues, food safety policies have been emphasized from European Union Reference Laboratories, National Reference Laboratories and Control Laboratories. These authorities provides guidelines for food safety and therefore play an important role in protecting the health of consumers and ensuring the quality of food across the supply chain. In 2021, Europe accounted for 36.7% share in terms of value, followed by North America and Asia Pacific, respectively.

Competitive Section

Major players operating in the global  food safety products and testing market include Intertek Group Plc, SGS SA, Eurofins Scientific SE, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., ALS Limited, Asurequality Limited, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., and Bureau Veritas SA.

Food safety products and testing is the process of testing food product for determining the presence of contaminants such as toxins, pathogens, chemicals, radioactive elements, and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in the food. Food & beverage, environment, and agriculture are some of the major end-use applications of food safety products and testing. In agriculture, it is used to detect the pathogens in the seeds and crops whereas in environment application it is used in soil testing, pesticide analysis, and water testing.

Market Dynamics

Growing cases of food adulteration coupled with the increasing production of genetically modified organisms based food products are expected to drive the market growth. Genetically modified organisms help in enhancing the yield of the crops and also improve resistance against plant disease. However, the consumption of GMOs food products can cause various health issues such as lowering of immune response. Due to such risks, the governments of various countries have implemented rules for food safety tests in order to identify the presence of GMO in food products. This is expected to fuel market growth.

Certified and clean label products such as allergen-free food products are gaining traction in market. Increasing use of antimicrobials and additives in processed food products are also expected to boost demand for food safety and product testing. Moreover, the shift in behavior and demographics of populations especially across Asia Pacific region, which is growing consumption of packaged food products is further anticipated to bolster the market growth.
