Food Testing Market Growth and Forecast (2020-2025):

The Global Food Testing Market Size was worth USD 17.0 billion in 2020, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of USD 24.6 billion by the end of 2025, registering an annual growth rate of 7.7% between 2020 and 2025.

Food Testing Market

Market Overview:

Food testing is a food verification procedure to determine the safety of foodborne illness and reduce the risk of contamination. Food testing includes verification of food content as indicated on the label. It was an essential factor in maintaining food quality in terms of ingredients, flavor, and appearance. Food analysis technologies, such as microbial contamination and chemical analysis, are aspects of the safe production, processing and delivery of food to consumers. Food testing helps companies regulate allergens and pathogenic bacteria in foods that provide consumers with safe and healthy products.

Recent Developments in Food Testing Industry:

  • In August 2018, ALS Limited expanded the True American Life Sciences business by acquiring Truesdail Laboratories.
  • Intertek Group Plc provides Test, Inspection, Warranty and Certification (ATIC) services, including sustainability analysis, product assurance, laboratory safety, quality and performance testing, external vendor auditing, and vendor compliance.
  • In January 2018, SGS will provide microbiological, chemical and physical food testing to Vanguard Sciences Inc. (USA) is acquired.
  • In October 2018, Eurofins, offering testing services for the environment, agriculture, food and health, and pharmaceutical sectors, with three laboratories to expand its presence in the Canadian market had acquired EnvironeX Group Inc.

Food Testing Market Growth:

Increased demand for convenience and packaged foods, increased chemical contamination in the food processing industry and increased consumer awareness of food testing are primarily driving growth in this industry.


Improper use of technology in the production of instant foods will increase chemical contamination in the food processing industry, leading to increased market demand for products during the forecast period. Factors such as lifestyle changes and the growing popularity of fast-service restaurants are supposed to require safety testing of edible products as demand for packaged and processed foods increases in developed countries and development. In addition, the increasing demand for quality testing of processed and unprocessed meat is assumed to drive growth in the global food testing market. The development of advanced technologies related to food testing procedures is expected to drive market growth during the projection period. Food security has often been used as a means of controlling trade and imposing taxes and duties.

Besides, changes in demographic behavior in the Asia-Pacific region are presumed to promote the consumption of packaged foods, which is suspected of driving demand for food testing assessment during the period of forecast. Technological improvements with respect to the expansion of reliable, rapid quality and safety testing technologies such as biosensors, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and rapid culture detection are opening up new opportunities for market development. Furthermore, the increased use of electrical biosensors in microbiological testing, reducing analysis time, will lead to a market for the evaluation of the safety of edible items during the outlook period.


Market growth is likely to be hampered by the lack of food management infrastructure in developing countries, the complexity of testing technology and the lack of regulatory coordination.

Food Testing Market Segmentation Analysis:

By contaminants, Pathogenic contaminants dominated the global food safety testing market. The detection of pathogens is carried out mainly in meat, poultry, seafood and dairy products. With many patients observing diseases caused by pathogens, the high applicability in various fields is accelerating business growth. Salmonella is an integral part of food safety testing for pathogens. Pathogens can cause diseases such as diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, nausea, and long-term illness and can lead to death.

By technology, traditional technology dominates the global food safety testing market, and the method is widely used in developing countries. The adoption of food safety testing services is increasing due to low production costs, along with many service providers using traditional methods. Immunoassay and PCR techniques are an essential part of the rapid procedure. Technology upgrades to deliver accurate results in a limited time will drive rapid growth in the technology market.

Depending on the type of food testing, meat, poultry, and seafood are expected to account for a large proportion. Meat consumption worldwide has increased significantly to over 42 kg per person due to health benefits such as increased protein intake and use of outdoor dining. Due to increased consumer and health awareness, the need to maintain or improve product quality is driving the need for food safety testing. The development of regulations due to the presence of food pathogens through meat, poultry and seafood products will accelerate commercial growth.

Food Testing Market Geographical Segmentation Analysis:

  • North America - the United States and Canada
  • Europe - United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, and France
  • The Asia Pacific - India, Japan, China, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia
  • Latin America  - Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Rest of LATAM
  • The Middle East and Africa - Africa and Middle East (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Lebanon, Jordan, Cyprus)

Regional Analysis:

Europe has become the dominant region in the industry, accounting for 35.3% of the global share in 2018, and the prevalence of food-related allergies among consumers in this region is anticipated to increase their dependence on procedures in security test. Food testing is expected to account for a significant proportion of the North American market due to standards set by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, unlike other regions, North America has a relatively low market share compared to GMOs. There is no strong regulation on the cultivation and production of GMO crops in the United States. The effort is supposed to record a remarkable gain. The Latin American market continues to grow in demand for these tests due to the increased consumption of packaged and processed edible products. The region was severely affected by JBS's meat scandals in Brazil, which are foreseen to further strengthen the market by enforcing strict regulations in the country.

Leading Company:

Eurofins Scientific Group, Intertek Group Plc, NEOGEN Corp., QIAGEN NV and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. are among the most influential companies in the global food testing market.
