The rapid test market is projected to reach USD 15.71 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.7% from 2017. This market is driven by the increasing demand for faster and reliable test results. In the food industry, the primary focus is to reduce the time required for testing and analysis. The turnaround time required to get the food test results by using traditional culture-based tests is very high. With increased competition in the market and concerns about dispatching the product as fresh as possible, the demand for faster test results is increasing from the food product manufacturers.
The key market players adopted strategies such as expansions & investments, acquisitions, new products/service & technology launches, agreements, collaborations, and partnerships to meet the growing demand for rapid test.
