Market Leaders – Residue Testing Market
The residue testing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2016 to 2021. This market is driven by increase in chemical contamination outbreaks in the food processing industries and growth in allergic reactions among the consumers, leading to stringent government regulations for the food labeling in residue testing. The growth in international trading of food materials and the organic revolution have led the need for food residue testing.
