The meat, poultry and seafood segment by food tested is projected to achieve the highest CAGR growth in the food safety testing market

Bacterial contamination takes place at all stages of slaughtering.  Maximum contamination happens during defeathering or skinning owing to inappropriate animal handling and unhygienic conditions. Cross-contamination of products has been caused by improper equipment cleaning procedures. Bacterial contamination also results via scaling and eviscerating. Based on the HACCP food safety control system, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has developed regulations to prevent the contamination of meat and poultry products in slaughterhouses and processing plants.

The Rapid technology segment is projected to account for the highest market share in the food safety testing market over the forecast period

Rapid technology is segmented into convenience-based PCR, immunoassay, and chromatography & spectrometry, which are used to test and identify contaminants through different means. The use of these methods also facilitates a huge reduction in the overall testing costs needed using traditional methods. Thus, their popularity amongst the startups and SME food manufacturing businesses, especially in China and India, is increasing significantly.

APAC is projected to account for the highest CAGR in the Food safety testing market during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific food safety market is growing owing to the implementation of stringent rules and regulations regarding food. Governments have put different regulations in place for consumers, producers, and regulators. The market growth in this region is largely driven by rising demand for processed food in emerging and developing nations like India, China, Indonesia, and Thailand, as well as an increase in poisoning outbreaks caused by consumption of contaminated meat and rise in cases of food degradation like contamination, pesticides, and artificial flavouring. In 2007, the APEC Food Safety Cooperation Forum (FSCF), led by China and Australia, was established to improve the technical competence of food safety management and detection practices throughout the food supply chain.

The Road Ahead - Innovation and Expansion

The future of the food safety testing market is promising. Continuous advancements in technology, such as automation and biosensors, will further enhance efficiency and accuracy. Additionally, the rising demand for organic and minimally processed foods is likely to drive the need for targeted testing solutions. As global food trade intensifies, the need for harmonized international standards for food safety testing will become increasingly crucial.

In conclusion, the food safety testing market is a dynamic and rapidly evolving landscape. By understanding its various segments and regional variations, stakeholders can gain valuable insights to navigate this crucial sector and ensure the safety of our global food supply chain.
