Posted by shanigaram karthik on February 24th, 2020

Market overview:

The global food safety testing market is expected to grow from US$ 17.7 billion in 2018 to US$ 24.9 billion in 2025, with a compound annual rate of 7.7% during the forecast period. Food certification procedures to ensure the safety of causing foodborne illness and reduce the threat of contamination are evidence of food safety. Food safety tests are an essential process to maintain food quality and safety. Governments around the world have greatly expanded their emphasis on food security. The development of the global food industry is based on food testing mechanisms. Inadequate food analysis mechanisms may increase the risk of foodborne illness.

Recent developments:

In April 2018, SGS acquired Oleotest NV to provide chemical testing services for food, feed and agricultural products. The acquisition is expected to strengthen the leading position in the farming and food testing sector in Belgium by allowing the company to enter the complementary industry for chemical analysis.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

The main driver of the global food safety testing market is the increase in microbial contamination of food. Inappropriate use of technology in instant food production, increasing chemical contamination in the food processing industry, will increase the demand for products on the market during the forecast period. Factors such as changes in lifestyle and the growing popularity of fast-service restaurants are likely to require safety testing of edible products as demand for packaging and processed foods increases in developed and developing countries. In addition, the growing demand for quality testing of processed and unprocessed meat is foreseen to drive the growth of the global food safety testing market. 

The market for food safety tests is gaining importance due to the occurrence of foodborne diseases worldwide. Also, increasing global food opportunities, rising cases of error in food labels, strict government regulations and regulations on food analysis mechanisms can revitalize the food safety analysis market.

Lack of awareness about food security and inadequate government regulation, not only in developing countries but also in several developing countries, will hinder the growth of this market.
