Global Food Safety Testing Market Possible Restraint:

High Costs of Testing Equipment and Lack of Skilled Technicians - Food safety testing is paramount to ensuring public health. For toxicity & contaminant detection in various food products, automated testing systems integrated with advanced features & functionalities are used, which are highly reliable. However, their initial costs and infrastructure requirements are on the higher side. In addition, rigorous R&D activities and the continuous need for accuracy & reliability of test results are further accelerating the price of these machines. Moreover, skilled technicians are also needed to operate these systems. Hence, developing countries with weak economies suffer immensely, owing to high equipment costs and lack of infrastructure required for food safety testing. These aspects are hindering the growth of the global market.

Global Food Safety Testing Market (2024-30): Segmentation Analysis

The Global Food Safety Testing Market study of MarkNtel Advisors evaluates & highlights the major trends & influencing factors in each segment & includes predictions for the period 2024–2030 at the global, regional, and national levels. Based on the analysis, the market has been further classified as:

Based on Testing Type:

  • Allergen Testing
  • Residues & Contamination Testing
  • GMO Testing
  • Mycotoxin (Fungi) & Microbiological Testing
  • Pathogen Testing
  • Toxic Heavy Metals Testing
  • Others (Chemical or Nutritional Testing)

Of them all, pathogen testing holds a notable share of the Global Food Safety Testing Market. Rapid pathogen testing techniques have become highly popular worldwide and are carried out extensively on dairy, meat, & seafood products, mainly due to the mounting prevalence of various foodborne diseases caused due to improper handling, undercooking, & unhygienic food storage conditions.

Mishandling of raw poultry and consumption of undercooked poultry & unpasteurized milk are the main reasons behind the growing cases of food poisoning. Governments of various countries are thus implementing stringent regulations on food safety as more & more consumers are becoming increasingly health conscious. As a result, numerous pathogen tests are being carried out on different food products to ensure proper food preparation & handling and reduce the possibilities of contamination, i.e., enhancing the Food Safety Testing Market size.

Based on Technology:

  • Traditional Technology
  • Rapid Technology

Here, rapid technology would continue holding the maximum share of the food safety testing market through 2030. It owes to its benefits like flexibility along with accurate, quick, & real-time results, as well as various technological advancements in closed tube & automated PCR and the increasing availability of inexpensive testing kits. Nowadays, food producers can set up a PCR laboratory next to their production unit and utilize the same staff for food safety testing. With the advent of automated PCR, throughput & reproducibility have increased significantly, along with a greatly reduced hands-on time.

Due to the quick generation of results with rapid testing technologies like PCR, there are fewer chances of food contamination. By computing the number of certain DNA segments in food samples, PCR testing helps detect both intentional & unintentional food adulterations caused by biological contaminants. The agricultural biotechnology industry extensively uses this technology at many stages of the product development process to determine if there is any genetically modified material in a product sample and evaluate its amount. Hence, in view of these aspects, the mounting use of rapid technologies in the food industry is contributing significantly to the expansion of the market globally.

Global Food Safety Testing Market Regional Projection

  • North America
  • South America
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Europe
  • Middle East & Africa

Of all regions globally, North America holds a noteworthy share of the Global Food Safety Testing Market. It owes primarily to stringent regulations on food safety implemented by the regulatory bodies, the rapidly increasing production & consumption of packaged food, which makes safety testing crucial during every stage of food production, coupled with the rising incidence of foodborne diseases, especially in the US & Canada.

Consequently, food safety testing types, such as microbial & GMO testing, have been made mandatory by regulatory bodies across North America at all stages of food production & processing in order to ensure that consumers eat safe food. In addition, the ever-increasing health consciousness among people, entwined with the extensive presence of the leading food & beverage manufacturers and testing companies working actively on discovering more innovative technologies, are other prominent aspects driving the North America Food Safety Testing Market.
