Food Safety Testing Market Size & Forecast (2020-2025):

The Size of the Global food safety testing market was valued at USD 14.23 billion in 2020 and expected to raise at a current CAGR of 7.60% to reach USD 20.52 billion by 2025. The world food supply is below constant threat of contaminations, and this generates a requirement for effective test merchandise that can guarantee food safety. Microbial pathogens, medicine leftovers, and agricultural chemicals are dangerous to human beings if eaten unchecked. Pathogen testing continues to be the most leading segment of food testing.

Food safety testing is known for the inspection of food products for disease-causing organisms, chemicals, and other hazardous materials. It is usually targeted at three major food contaminants, namely, pathogens, chemicals, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Food fraud is committed when food is profoundly changed for financial gains with the intention of deceiving customers. The food standards agency (FSA) specifies two major kinds of food frauds, namely, sale of food, which is unfit and potentially harmful and deliberate misdescription of food.

Food Safety Testing Market

Recent Developments and Trends in Food Safety Testing Industry:

  • SGS launched a new food microbiological testing laboratory at its Fairfield, N.J., headquarters location. The 2,000-square-foot microbial testing facility uses a robust information technology platform to provide food producers, makers and suppliers a wide area of testing services across every food type.
  • The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), has appointed product testing and certification firm Intertek to undertake testing, inspection and auditing of food industry operators (FBOs) in the country. The Intertek food laboratory in Gurgaon has been accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing Laboratories (NABL). The lab's capabilities cover residual pesticides, antibiotics and heavy metals, among others. FBOs require to test their food samples at particular intervals every year, a statement issued by the organization said. In addition to that, Intertek will be responsible for several factors inspecting food industries, ranging from basic hygiene needs to periodical audits. The accreditation has authorized Intertek to give away food safety management system certificates to food business operators in India.

Drivers and Restraints:

The implementation of different regulations on food safety, especially in developed regions, drives the expansion of the global food safety testing market. Recycling of animal by-products, sale of goods past their employment by date, the inclusion of harmful ingredients, and unsafe food handling procedures are some of the critical food fraud activities. The development in the global food safety testing market is majorly driven by factors such as a growth in the variety of foodborne illnesses, rising demand for pathogen testing, stringent processes, improved consumer cognizance and globalization of the food trade. Companies involved in the production and circulation of food merchandise are directed by the respective regional and international higher-up bodies, to implement food safety analysis and certification.

On the contrary, the time involved and excessive price of the testing procedure are the main factors hindering the expansion of this market. Also, lack of food control infrastructure in the growing economies, complexity in testing techniques, and lack of harmonization of regulations are estimated to hinder the expansion of the market.

However, increase in economically motivated adulterations (EMAs) owing to high competition among food producers, and rise in examples of food debasement like adulterations, pesticides, synthetic taste enhancers, and certifications, fuel the expansion of the food safety testing market.

Food Safety Testing Market Segmentation Analysis:

By Contaminants:

  • Microbial
  • GMOs
  • Metal contaminants
  • Pesticides and residues
  • Toxins
  • Food allergen
  • Others

The quickest expanding segment in this market is GMO testing, owing to the rise in customer knowledge for genetically modified organisms in food, and efficient technological trends are estimated to drive the global market for food safety testing. The unavailability of required nutritional and safety properties related information of genetically modified food leads customers to believe that they are unsafe for consumption, hence driving the market for GMO testing and labeling.

By Food Type:

  • Meat and poultry
  • Dairy product
  • Processed food
  • Beverages
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Others

Among the food types, the meat and poultry segment is estimated to lead the worldwide market. The contamination of meat and poultry is generally seen throughout processing, packaging and storing, which creates immense growth potential for the key players.
