Key Market Trends

Increasing Prevalence of Food Allergies

Food allergy has emerged as a serious public health concern. The prevalence of food allergies has been estimated to be around 2-4% in adults and 6-8% in children. Children are the most vulnerable population group to food allergy; they are also two to four times more vulnerable to other allergic conditions, such as asthma or eczema. The global food allergen testing market is driven by the increasing number of food allergies reported to medical establishments. Although children and teenagers are more prone to food allergies, at least 15% of food allergies are first diagnosed in adulthood. Combined with adverse non-toxic reactions (hypersensitivity), the prevalence rate of food allergies is mounting exponentially. The rising number of food allergic cases have prompted public health authorities worldwide to take significant measures to curb the allergic reactions and its consequences.

Europe is the Largest Market

Europe is projected to be one of the fastest growing regions in the food allergen testing market due to stringent policies that have been established to achieve high levels of food safety in the region. Peanuts, tree nuts and fish are some of the common allergenic foods causing frequent allergies in the European population. The prevalence of food allergy in Europe is uncertain. Using food challenges as a criterion for diagnosis, the prevalence of food allergy in Europe has been estimated to be between 3 and 4 %, both in children and adults. More than 17 million Europeans have a food allergy, and hospital admissions for severe reactions in children have risen seven-fold during the past decade, according to the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. One of the main objective of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission is to minimize the occurrence of food allergic reactions triggered by the consumption of undeclared allergens. The food allergen testing market in Europe is driven by rising awareness among Europeans regarding their sensitivities to certain foods coupled with the strictest compliance enforced by regulatory authorities.
