This report analyzes the food safety testing market, in terms of region, technology, contaminant, and food tested.

The global food safety testing market is gaining importance due to the pervasiveness of foodborne diseases worldwide. Increased stringencies of food safety rules & regulations by the governments of trading countries have also been pushing the growth of this market. Other driving factors include increasing globalization of food trade and development of rapid food safety testing techniques. The market is growing due to the implementation of stringent regulations to control the outbreaks of diseases.

Rapid advanced technologies are dominating the food safety testing market because traditional methods are time consuming and labor intensive. Culture method protocols are recognized as internationally accepted reference methods in foodborne pathogen detection (published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)). Advanced technologies are quick, accurate, and easy-to-use.

Rapid technologies, especially rapid detection kits, are used for food safety testing in processed foods. Worldwide different regulations have been set for ready-to-eat (RTE) products safety testing. Processed food products include frozen products, snacks, packaged products, etc. Listeria and other pathogens such as clostridium may be found in final RTE products.

The global food safety testing has been dominated by meat & poultry products owing to the fact that maximum number of illnesses have been due to meat & poultry products. The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow due to the increase in agriculture produce trade supply. This is because the exported and imported products have to be safe and certified accordingly, based on the food safety regulations of that particular county. Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) established a new rule to prevent contamination of meat and poultry products in slaughter houses and processing plants based on HACCP food safety control system.

The increased consumption of processed food, both in developing and developed countries, is creating a significant opportunity for processed food testing. Also, the contamination of most of the processed food occurs from the processing machineries. Inefficient supply chain and food contamination outbreaks are fueling the growth of the market.

The geographical and food tested segmentations was determined using secondary sources and verified through primary respondents. The demand in different regions was considered while estimating the share of the different regions in the food safety testing market. The market estimation was also based on various parameters, such as the number of players, demand trends, supply trends, and the extent of research activity in a particular region. The global food safety testing market is projected to reach a value of USD 16.1 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2015.

The global food safety testing market has been showing dynamic growth with the increasing concerns for food contamination and foodborne illnesses. The market has been experiencing growth, driven by increasing consumer awareness related to food safety issues. All regions have experienced severe outbreaks of foodborne illnesses and toxicity cases. Worldwide, stringent food safety regulations have been implemented to restrict the presence of pathogens or chemical contaminants that are responsible for the outbreak of foodborne illnesses. The market includes food testing laboratories as well as technology providers. These market players are experiencing increasing demand for food safety testing due to the concern of product recalls from food manufacturers and health issues from consumers.

North America dominates the global food safety testing market. The North American food safety testing market has expanded due to the increase in the number of foodborne disease outbreaks and food contamination. Canadian regulations are the most stringent and strongly support the food safety testing market. It has been observed that this country has emphasized widely on the inspection of imported food to judge the quality and safety of the food.

Outsourcing food safety testing has benefited food producers in cutting down costs, and has encouraged the growth of this market.

Food safety policies integrated in Europe follow the strategy of "from farm to fork."

The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing for the food safety testing market due to consumer awareness, regulatory bodies, and manufacturers taking necessary steps to avoid food product contaminations and product recalls. The growth has been majorly driven by the Chinese food safety testing market, as they have increased emphasis on food security dwelling internal and external to China.

The spread of food safety information has been encouraged by the availability of new testing technologies. Consumers and regulatory bodies are scrutinizing food firms to provide more information about pathogens in their products. This has assisted in setting food safety regulations and developing specificity of demand. The protection of domestic consumer health and assurance of exported food safety and quality have been approved by the National Food Control System. Though food safety has shown alarming signs across the world, some countries have been negligent on testing food for contaminants. In this case, governments need to take vital steps to set food safety testing mechanisms. Nevertheless, this situation will be tackled by the ever-growing efforts of regulations, companies, and partners of food safety systems. The global food safety testing market has been dominated by meat and poultry products owing to the fact that maximum number of illnesses are attributed to them.
