Global Lipid Testing Market for Food & Beverages - Insights
Lipids are one of the major constituents of foods and also important in numerous ways in a routine diet as they are major source of energy as they provide essential lipid nutrients. They comprise naturally occurring molecules such as sterols, fats, fat-soluble vitamins, and phospholipids. Lipids find their applications in cosmetics and food industries. However, over-consumption of some lipid components such as saturated fats and cholesterol can be harmful to health.
Stringent government regulations imposed on safety levels in the food industry have propelled the global lipid testing market for food & beverages. For instance, Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2014, proposed regulations on the nutrition labeling for prepackaged food products, an act governing food safety and sanitation and needs the nutrition labelling for packaged food such as content of fat, carbohydrates, and others.
Recent technology is the most widely used type with a market share of 67.09% in 2016, and is expected to lead the market throughout the forecast period. Recent technology has numerous applications in food & beverage industry that are used to check the count, metabolites, and type of microorganisms related to preservation, safety, food spoilage, foodborne pathogens, and others. For instance, in 2018, Certus Corporation, a company that provides innovators in food safety technologies, is manufacturing CERTUS System Detection Unit, which is based on Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy nanoparticle technology through a license agreement with Becton, Dickinson, and Company, a medical technology company. This system allows cost-effective and easy way to detect pathogens.
Food & beverages industry was the dominant application segment of lipid testing market in 2016 and is expected to retain market dominance throughout the forecast period. Lipid play a major role in many foods for determining the physical characteristics such as texture, appearance, flavor and others. Hence, testing of lipid in the food & beverages industry is important to determine the amount of specific content present in the foods. The Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) is a joint intergovernmental body of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and WHO, which coordinates food standards with the main objective to protect the health of consumers.
North America was the leading region in the global lipid testing market for food & beverages in 2016, with a revenue of US$ 293.1 million, and it expected to retain its supremacy throughout the forecast period. U.S. is the major contributor to the growth of this market in North America owing to the increasing initiatives taken by players in this region such as new equipment launch, merger, acquisition and various others. For instance, in 2018, Microbac Laboratories Inc., entered into a partnership with MedSurgPI, a pharmaceutical and medical device consultant company, through which the company plans to offer MedSurgPI services to their food, medical food, and nutritional supplements clients through diverse product development requirements.
Europe was the second-largest contributor to the global lipid testing market for food & beverages in 2016 with a market share of 24.91% in the same year. The growth is attributed owing to the stringent regulations imposed on food safety in this region. In 2007, EU regulation on nutrition and health claims was brought into force which sets EU-wide conditions for the use of nutrition claims such as ‘high in vitamin C’ or ‘low fat’ and health claims such as ‘helps lower cholesterol’. The regulation applies to food or drink product produced for human consumption marketed in the EU. Only foods that fit a certain nutrient profile (below certain salt, sugar and/or fat levels) will be allowed to carry claims.
