Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The global food safety testing market is projected to register a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026).
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for the food safety testing market got increased as food manufacturers offer virus-proof food products to consumers and gain a competitive edge over other market players. Furthermore, the government authorities are ensuring the safe production of food products amid the surging virus threat. In response, the European Commission has laid guidelines for food manufacturers to stand off the lack of official control encountered during lockdowns.
Food safety testing is a major and unavoidable factor in the food industry. Regulations regarding food safety tests, for tracing elements and inspecting the microbiological quality, etc. have been implemented at each and every level of processing. The regulations and standards vary from country to country. The food safety testing market is driven by increased consumer awareness regarding the safety aspects of food products.
Multi-dimensional analytical separation methods, combined with High-Resolution Accurate Mass Spectrometers (HRMS) are expected to shape the future of food testing and analysis. Such techniques are aimed at achieving multi-target detection efficiencies by identifying a large number of food contaminants in one workflow.
Scope of the Report

Key Market Trends
Growing Consumer Interest in Food Safety and Quality
The rising number of foodborne diseases, adulteration cases, and toxicity have been a threat to food safety and increased the need for food safety testing. The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) has reported that every year, one out of 10 people fall sick due to foodborne illness, mostly children under the age of five years. According to WHO around 420,000 people die every year after eating contaminated food. These factors highlight the need for increased care and the introduction of more facilities for food safety. Growing consumer interest in food quality with high technological advancements is driving the food safety testing market in developed countries. The safety certifications and compliance are undertaken by food processing companies and foodservice organizations are helping in gaining the consumer's trust. Increased consumer interest in food safety and quality issues, and the capability to rapidly share these issues through social media, combined with expanding regulatory resourcefulness, such as the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), are enhancing the prominence of testing.
