Global Food Irradiation Market: Overview

Food irradiation is the method of exposing food to ionising radiation to increase food safety and shelf life by reducing or removing microorganisms and insects, eliminating the risk of foodborne disease, and delaying ripening. Irradiation does not impair nutritional benefits, alter the quality, texture or taste of food or make food toxic in any noticeable way. In reality, any modification done by irradiation is so subtle that it is not easy to say whether a food has been irradiated. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is capable of controlling the sources of radiation applied to irradiate food. They approve a source of radiation for food use only after it has confirmed that food irradiation is safe.

Global Food Irradiation Market: Growth Factors

The food irradiation process has many benefits that contribute to the growth of market:

Foodborne Illness Prevention – to efficiently remove pathogens that cause food poisoning, such as E. coli (Escherichia) and Salmonella

Preservation refers to the process of destroying or inactivating organisms that cause food spoilage and decomposition in order to prolong the shelf life of foods.

Insect Control – to eliminate insects in or on exotic fruits shipped into the U.S. In addition, irradiation reduces the need for other pest-control methods that may damage the fruit.

Delay Sprouting and Ripening – to prevent sprouting (e.g., potatoes) and to delay fruit ripening to extend the life of the fruit.

Sterilisation – Irradiation can be used to sterilise foods, which can then be processed without refrigeration for years. In hospitals, sterilised foods are beneficial to patients with highly compromised immune systems, such as those suffering from AIDS or undergoing chemotherapy. Irradiated foods are subjected to significantly higher levels of care than foods licensed for general consumption.

Future Developments in Irradiation

Combinations of irradiation methods and other food preservation strategies are expected to become more popular in the coming years. Combinations of technologies can reduce the amount of energy or dosage levels while still killing bacteria and spoilage microbes, leading to improved final product quality. Synergistic effects of combinations of altered atmosphere packaging, freezing, refrigeration, and heating with irradiation are promising, as is the use of edible coatings and natural antimicrobials in conjunction with irradiation.

Global Food Irradiation Market: Segmentation

The gamma radiation section continues to be favoured in terms of source. This technique is very successful due to its increased protection, effectiveness and accuracy in detecting and removing contaminants in foodstuffs. Although future growth seems stagnant in the short term due to the COVID-19 pandemic due to limited testing, the segment is expected to pick up pace after 2021 with the continuation of on-site work arrangements. Gamma irradiation is very common in the treatment of exotic fruits and vegetables.

Food companies are increasingly considering using ozone treatment to treat a wide variety of foods, from fruits and vegetables to herbs, spices, and meat. Ozone is considered as a substitute to chlorine sanitizers as an eco-friendly disinfectant. Ozone-enriched water kills bacteria as efficiently as chlorine and removes the need for sanitization workers to manage, mix, or disposal of harsh chemicals. Furthermore, since ozone quickly converts to oxygen, it leaves no residue when it gets in contact.

Global Food Irradiation Market: Regional Analysis

By Geography, the food irradiation market is segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East and Africa.

In Asia Pacific, the food irradiation market will continue to rise as a result of the rapidly expanding demand for processed foods and clean label coupled with growing population. India and China are expected to pivot the growth of the country.

Strong regulatory restrictions on food safety requirements and enforcement implemented by the U.S. FDA promote the development of the food irradiation industry throughout North America. The FDA has authorized a number of irradiation foods in the U.S., including pork and beef, crustaceans (e.g., shrimp, crab, and lobster), spinach and lettuce, fresh fruits and vegetables, poultry, sprouting seeds such as alfalfa sprouts, shellfish-molluscan (e.g., clams, oysters, scallops, and mussels), shell eggs, seasonings and spices.
