This is attributed to the growth in demand for convenience and packaged food products, an increase in outbreaks of chemical contamination in food processing industries, and the rise in consumer awareness about food safety. However, the increase in global outbreaks of foodborne illnesses and globalization in food trade drive the demand for food safety testing services.
The GMO segment is projected to be the fastest-growing type in the food safety testing market during the forecast period. The fastest growing market of GMO is attributed due to Increase in consumer awareness for genetically modified organisms in food, and efficient technological trends are expected to drive the global market for GMO testing. Lack of information about the nutritional and safety properties of genetically modified food leads consumers to think that they are not safe for consumption, thereby driving the market for GMO testing and labeling.
The meat, poultry, and seafood segment is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. The contamination of meat & poultry products is often observed during processing, packaging, and storing. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has framed regulations to control the contamination of meat & poultry products in slaughterhouses and processing plants, based on the HACCP food safety control system.
The European market accounted for the largest share in the food safety testing market. European countries have recorded many issues related to food safety over the past few years. As a result, stringent policies have been regulated to implement complete food safety for the public. In Europe, food safety policies have been emphasized by efforts from Control Laboratories (CLs), National Reference Laboratories (NRLs), and EU Reference Laboratories (EURLs). These authorities have played an important role in maintaining food standards and protecting consumer health by ensuring the quality of the food supply chain.
Key market players include SGS (Switzerland), Eurofins (Luxemburg), Intertek (UK), Bureau Veritas (France), Mérieux (US), ALS Limited (Australia), TUV SÜD (Germany), and TÜV Nord Group (Germany), Microbac Laboratories (US), AsureQuality (Australia), FoodChain ID (US), Romer Labs (Australia), Symbio Laboratories (Australia), and RJ Hill Laboratories (New Zealand).
