Grain analysis refers to monitoring the quality of food grains by analyzing the samples of grains for pesticide residue, mycotoxin contamination, and its physical characteristics namely weight and size. Analysis of grains is also done to monitor the quality of grains at the time of storage, distribution, and procurement.

Some of the major drivers of the global grain analysis market are stringent quality and safety regulations by the government, globalization in grain trade, and prevention from potential foodborne illness outbreak. Technological advancement of instruments with high accuracy and ability to test wide range of contaminants is a major driving factor for the growth of grain analysis market. However, lack of awareness among population and improper regulatory laws are some of the major restraints in the grain analysis market.

Grain Analysis Market Outlook:

  • Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in grain analysis market. China and India are the major economies in this region with largest number of consumers and producers. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization, the production of rice in Asia is around 90% of the total world rice production, which is a major growth driver for growth of grain analysis market. The large quantities of grains being damaged from insects and microorganisms and exposure from heat has also resulted in the demand for grain analysis. Stringent government regulations, improvement in technology, and need of analysis for preservation of food for longer period is a key factor in driving the growth of grain analysis market.
  • North America and Europe are the leading market for grain analysis in 2016. The U.S, Canada, Germany, and France are some of the major economies in agricultural trade in these regions. According to United States Department of Agriculture, in 2012, about 355 million metric tons of food grain was produced by the U.S, which increased to 443 million metric tons in 2014. The increase in production of food grains offers an attractive market for grain analysis in this economies. Grain analysis also helps to detect pesticide residue and offers prevention from different food borne diseases, which is expected to further drive the growth of grain analysis market over the forecast period.

Key players in the Grain Analysis Market:

Some of the major players in the Grain Analysis market are Waters Corporation (U.S), Bureau Veritas SA (France), Intertek Group plc (U.K), R J Hill Laboratories Ltd, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S), Futari Grain Technology Services (Australia), Bioprofile Testing Laboratories Llc (U.S), Great Tew Grain Processing Ltd (U.S), Eurofins Scientific (Luxembourg), SGS SA (Switzerland), and Shimadzu Corporation (Japan).

Grain Analysis Market Key Developments:

  • Companies operating in grain analysis markets are focused on strategies such as new product development and mergers & acquisitions in order to expand their product portfolio and strengthen their market presence.
  • For instance, in the fall of 2016, Cgrain AB (a Sweden based analytical instruments manufacturing company), installed their new ‘Cgrain Value image analysis instrument’ at Lantmännen’s oat mill in Sweden. This instrument has capacity to handle about 45,000 metric tons of oats/year and assess the grain quality on the basis of single kernel analysis. Instruments is equipped to handle various other grains such as wheat, rye, triticale and barley.
  • Moreover, in December 2014, PerkinElmer, Inc (an analytical instruments manufacturer), acquired Perten Instruments Group AB. Pertan is a Sweden based global market leader engaged in supplying advanced analytical instruments used for quality testing of food, grain, flour and feed. This acquisition is expected to expand Perkin Elmer’s product portfolio of food testing instruments.
  • Furthermore, in June 2019, Perkin Elmer launched new ‘AuroFlow AQ Afla Strip Test’ which is to be used with PerkinElmer’s QuickSTAR Horizon strip reader which can be used by farmers. Test would provide rapid detection and first-round screening of mycotoxins such as aflatoxins like B1 B2, G1 and G2 in grains. This was aimed at detecting toxic compounds at detection levels of 2 to 300 parts per billion in period of six minutes.
