Environmental Testing Market: Overview
Environmental Testing enables testing the levels of contamination in the natural environment to study its impact on nature and living beings. Demand for environmental testing has exponentially risen over the past few years as the focus on environment conservation has increased due to changing climatic conditions and increasing focus on sustainability.
Stringent mandates are being implemented across the world regarding environmental conservation and this is expected to be a major factor boosting environmental testing market growth through 2028. Increasing deployment of environmental testing services by industries to maintain compliance is also expected to boost environmental testing market potential in the long run.
However, high costs for environmental testing services are expected to be a major factor restraining the environmental testing market growth over the forecast period.
The pandemic of 2020 had an adverse impact on the Environmental Testing market as the world was dealing with the unprecedented onset of a global pandemic. Lockdown restrictions were imposed across the world to contain the spread of coronavirus infections and this led to a very limited outdoor activity and hence resulted in a drop in environmental testing across the world.
The closure of multiple industries also led to a drop in demand for environmental testing services and solutions in the pandemic era. The negative trend of the market is expected to diminish as the pandemic subsides and the world returns to normal and governments across the world bolster their focus on saving the environment to avoid the climatic emergency that is worsening with every passing day.
Environmental Testing Market: Growth Drivers
Rising Stringent Mandates from Governments Across the World.
The world has seen some major changes in the environment over recent years and the deterioration of the environment has led to some major actions being taken across the world. Governments across the world are imposing new regulations to control environmental pollution and conserve the environment. These stringent mandates are propelling the demand for environmental testing services and solutions in industries and other applications across multiple industry verticals.
Environmental Testing Market: Restraints
High Costs of Environmental testing to Hinder Market Growth
Environmental Testing can incur huge costs as sample preparation can require a full-blown laboratory setup and this could be a major expenditure for many companies this could act as a major restraining factor for the environmental testing market growth in the long run. The requirement of advanced instruments and equipment which is costly is also a major factor that would hamper environmental testing market potential over the forecast period.

(US), Alpha analytical (US ), Advanced Environmental Testing (US ), American Environmental Testing Lab (US), Pace Analytical (US), AnaLabs (US).
Global Environmental Testing market is segmented as follows:
By Targets Tested
By End user
Environmental testing is the measurement of equipment performance under a specific environmental condition, such as high and low temperature. Environmental testing simulates climatic conditions and mechanical stress. The environmental test sequences for electrical units in international standard IEC 60068-1 and for military supply in the United States national standard MIL-STD-810 G to recommend guidelines for suitable test sequences were investigated. Manufacturers engaged in environmental testing equipment are striving for compliant, safe, and reliable products in each operation. Environmental tests are performed at the marine test site of National Defense and Science Institute for the evaluation of the performance of marine weapon systems and naval vessels. Tests include evaluation of noise level in each space within vessel or submersible vehicle, evaluation of vibrations in working environment, and measurement of infrared radiation to estimate the reduction in a vessel. Over the past years, environmental pollution is one of the major health concerns globally which will increase demand for the product. A huge number of toxic compounds, particularly from agricultural and industrial activities, are being released into the environment frequently. Increased discovery of contaminated chemical compounds in the atmosphere, particularly in water and their natural effects on organisms is fueling the growth of the environmental testing market. Harmful chemicals stimulate toxic effects to the organisms when released in the environment, but consequences are delayed owing to the effects of biomagnification and bioaccumulation.
Increasing rules and regulations for the protection of the environment and several government initiatives & authorities to monitor environmental conditions are expected to drive the environmental testing market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing incidences of health issue caused due to organic contamination, the rapid development of industrial technology coupled with changes in the natural environment across the world are anticipated to upsurge the demand for the technology in the future years. Harmful effects of contaminants on the human and ecosystem is not assessed by standard chemical analysis of samples, thus toxicity tests by using organisms or cells is an important part of the environmental monitoring. Various biological methods on the basis of native or genetically modified microorganisms as test species have been applied to environmental toxicity assessment.
Based on the sample, the environmental testing market is segmented into the air, wastewater/effluent, soil, and water. On the basis of technology, the environmental testing market is segmented into the rapid and conventional method. Based on the contaminant, the environmental testing market is categorized into heavy metals, microbial contamination, residues, organic compounds, and solids.
North America held the major revenue share in 2017, in the global environmental testing market. The trend is anticipated to continue over the forecast timeframe. Presence of various government organizations that have enforced environment protection policies in the region is the major driving factor for industry growth.
