In North America, foodborne illnesses and poisoning has been increasing. The major outbreaks of foodborne diseases have been reported due to pathogens such as salmonella, campylobacter, E. coli, and listeria. It has been estimated that nearly 48 million people in the U.S. contract foodborne poisoning each year. Apart from pathogens contamination, toxic materials are found in food products that may be responsible for foodborne toxicity. Hence, it has become necessary for the food manufacturers to establish new food safety standards and implement food testing at different stages of the food value chain. Food manufacturers have been adopting new food processing, packaging, and testing technologies for sustainability. The increase in the outbreaks has emanated the food safety testing market.

The North American food safety testing market has been showing dynamic growth with increasing concern for food contamination, spoilage, and foodborne illnesses. The market has been experiencing growth, driven by increasing consumer awareness on food safety and media influence related to food safety issues. In North America, stringent food safety regulations have been implemented to restrict the presence of pathogens or chemical contaminants that are responsible for the outbreak of foodborne illness. The market includes food testing laboratories as well as technology providers. These market players are experiencing an increasing demand for food safety testing due to the concern of products recall from food manufacturers and health issues from consumers and the government.

The segmentation on the basis of contaminants, technologies, and food tested was determined using secondary sources and verified through primary respondents. The market estimation was based on various parameters, such as the number of players, demand trends, supply trends, and the extent of research activity in a particular country. The North American food safety testing market is projected to reach USD 6.4 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2015 to 2020.

The North American food safety testing market is projected to reach USD 6.4 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2015.

In 2014, the U.S. dominated the North American food safety testing market. Food safety testing is a method of manufacturing, handling, and storing food and food products to prevent foodborne illnesses and poisoning. The North American food safety testing market has expanded due to the increased number of foodborne disease outbreaks and food contamination caused by pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, Campylobacter, and others (Staphylococcus, Clostridium, and Bacillus). The North American government has spent billions to recover from the pathogen epidemic. Food safety regulations in North America have been strictly implemented to eliminate the food contamination chances and unwanted occurrences of foodborne illnesses and poisoning.

The food safety testing market has been divided into four segments, namely, contaminant, food tested, technology, and country. The food safety testing is been conducted to detect contaminants under the category of pathogens, pesticides, GMOs, toxins, and others which include food allergens and chemical residues. The common pathogen testing for food safety include E.coli, salmonella, listeria, and campylobacter. Food safety testing has been generally carried in meat and poultry products, processed foods, fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and other foods which include cereals and raw food materials. Food safety testing has been segmented into traditional and rapid technology. Rapid technology includes convenience-based, PCR-based, immunoassay-based, and other methods such as GC, HPLC, LC, and LC-MS-MS. The North American food safety testing market is explicitly determined for three countries: U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
