Globalization of food trade has led to increased concerns for food safety and foodborne diseases. Environmental contamination, exposure to microorganisms and pollutants has further led to safety issues related to food. Thus, there is rapid demand for food testing kits which help to detect pathogens, allergens, GMO’s, mycotoxins, meat species, in the food samples.
The aim of the report is to estimate the market size for food testing kits and the future growth potential of the market for food testing kits across various segments, such as target tested, food sample, and technology.
The market has been studied for historic years from 2018 and 2019, with the base year of estimation as 2019 and forecast from 2020 to 2028. Factors such as growing prevalence of foodborne diseases worldwide, along with increase in food adulteration, stringent food safety regulations are the key drivers of the food testing kits market. However, lack of food control infrastructure, and resources in the developing regions will hinder the growth of the market in the next few years.
By food sample, meat, poultry, and seafood segment held substantial share of the global food testing kits market. Growing consumption of seafood and meat products in developed as well developing economies is expected to increase demand for food testing kits for food safety.
North America dominated the global food testing test kits market in 2019. The dominant share is attributable to high prevalence of foodborne diseases in the U.S., along with presence of regulatory bodies supporting food safety, and testing and quality control. For instance, according to CDC, every year, around 128,000 people are hospitalized and 3,000 die due to foodborne diseases in the country. Moreover, presence of well-established industry players is expected to fuel growth of the market in the region.
Asia Pacific is projected to witness lucrative growth over the coming years owing to increase in outbreaks of foodborne diseases in developing countries such as India. These diseases are majorly caused due to toxic factors such as microbiological and environmental contaminants. This is likely to augment the demand for food testing kits in the region.
The global food testing kits industry is highly competitive in nature as large number of small & medium enterprises and well-established manufacturers are operating in this industry. Industry players are focused on developing novel test kits which in the coming years will further increase the overall growth of the market.
