Analyst Speak:

The Global Residue Testing Market increasing at significant CAGR over the forecast years to reach US$ 6,127.5 Mn by 2025 owing to surge in demand for quality food and products in developed and developing countries across the globe

The global residue testing market expected to grow at prominent growth rate to reach US$ 6,127.5 Mn by 2025. Major factors influencing the growth of global residue testing market include surge in population demanding for quality food products, increase in packaged food products sales, growing concern about food contamination, adoption of residual testing methods across the food value chain, and stringent government regulations for the residual limits in food products are anticipated to propel the global residue testing market over the forecast years. In addition, rise in food contamination issues also boost the residue testing market over the forecast years. For instance, in 2017, CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) found traces of herbicide named glyphosate, in nearly 30% of the samples tested for 3200 food products. The governmental agencies such as CFIA, EU and USDA consider glyphosate safe up to the limit of 1.3%. However, unregulated use of pesticides, lack of awareness about different residue, testing methods among farming community and food processing companies, and lack of standard food safety regulations in underdeveloped countries are impede the growth of residue testing market over the forecast years.

Pesticide Residue Segment Dominate the Global Residue Testing Market

Based on the residue type, global residue testing market segmented into toxins, pesticide residues, food allergens, veterinary drugs, and heavy metals. Among all the residues type, pesticide residues dominated the market in 2018 with an approximate share of 24% and the segment is growing at prominent growth rate over the forecast years owing to increase in the usage of pesticides in agriculture, stringent regulations for pesticide residue limits in food products, and increase in trading of food products across the globe. For instance, according to a health advocacy group in USA, approximately 70% of fresh produce sold in the US has pesticide residues. In addition, toxin residue testing burgeoning at highest growth rate owing to surge in R&D for the development of advanced test kits.  For instance, In September 2016, Charm Sciences, Inc. received USDA-GIPSA approval for ROSA WET-S3, for the detection of Aflatoxin quantity in corn within 3 minutes.
