North America Food Safety Testing Market was worth $ 5.25 billion in 2021 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 7.20%, to reach $ 7.43 billion by 2026. The exercise of food safety testing has gained significant meaning over the past few years in view of rising cases of food-borne diseases and poisoning caused by impure food products.
Microbial pathogens such as bacteria, food allergens, viruses, and agricultural chemicals can harm consumers, if unchecked. Shortcoming in treating and processing the food to put an end to toxins and other impurities, incorrect handling of food and polluted input food materials are the key factors that cause food contamination.
The growth of the North America Food Safety Testing market is largely due to the increase in the number of foodborne illnesses, growing demand for pathogen testing, strict procedures, better consumer cognizance and globalization of the food business. Rising public concerns over the safety of GM products is another major factor advancing the growth of the market. However, time consumed and excessive cost of the testing procedure are the significant factors restricting the growth of this market.
The North America Food Safety Testing Market is segmented based on contaminants tested, food type, and technology. On the basis of contaminants tested, the North America Food Safety Testing market is segmented into Microbial, GMOs, Metal Contaminants, Pesticides and Residues, Toxins, Food Allergen, and Others. Microbiological testing holds the largest part of the market due to its safety testing in almost all food products.
