The practice of food safety testing has gained considerable significance over the past few years in view of growing incidences of food-borne illnesses and poisoning caused by contaminated food products. Companies engaged in the manufacturing and distributions of food products are mandated by respective regional and international regulatory agencies to implement food safety testing and certification. Such tests are carried out on a range of food products that include dairy, fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry and processed foods, as well as others such as cereals and food additives. Major causes that result in food contamination include:

  • Inadequacy in treating and processing food to destroy contaminants and other impurities
  • Improper handling of food and contaminated input food materials

Pathogens have been implicated in the maximum occurrences of food-borne illnesses on a global basis, thereby signifying the largest share accorded to pathogen testing in the food safety testing market.  

Primary factors driving the market for food safety testing include:                                                             

  • Rise in the number of food-borne illnesses
  • Stringent regulations
  • Greater consumer awareness and globalization of the food trade

Prospects offered by emerging markets of Asia-Pacific and South America in the area of food safety testing are the most attractive, with the developed economies of North America and Europe expected to maintain slower growth over the 2017 - 2022 analysis period.
