Food Safety Testing Services Market: Growth Drivers

Rapidly expanding food industry to deliver a high growth rate

The global food safety testing services market is expected to witness a high growth rate owing to the rapid expansion of the food industry. The increasing population and subsequent rise in food products have resulted in higher undertakings of food safety testing. New food and beverages cannot be launched into the commercial industry without undergoing standardized testing procedures and obtaining necessary certificates indicating that the food is safe for consumption and does not contain harmful components. For instance, the European market is governed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) which works toward providing independent scientific evidence and risk assessment that are used for defining food safety standards in the region.

Similarly, other regions have specific governing bodies that work in tandem with international food standards. Food producers and sellers are constantly trying to enter new markets or tap into new consumer segments with the help of quick new product launches in terms of either an innovative product vertical or product portfolio expansion of an existing range. For instance, in April 2023, General Mills, manufacturer of the famous chocolate Kit Kat, announced it would launch its Kit Kat cereal in the US market after making a mark in European territories. The increase in partnerships between food producers has resulted in higher innovation rates further fueling the demand for food safety testing services.

Increasing incidents of food product recalls after health concerns generate more consumers

In recent times, there have been several incidents related to food and beverages being recalled from shelves after registering claims related to health concerns. In June 2023, the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) analyzed samples of spices exported from India including Everest Sambhar Masala, Everest Garam Masala, and Maggi Masala ae Magic. The results showed that these spices contained Salmonella and were not labeled for distribution in the US. In February 2023, more than 400 prepared food items were recalled due to concerns over listeria, a dangerous bacteria. The products were marked with labels ‘sell through’ or ‘fresh through’. Such incidents are expected to help the global market grow further.

Food Safety Testing Services Market: Restraints

Lack of strict implementation policies and uncoordinated approach toward food safety testing may restrict market expansion

The food safety testing services industry may not reach its true potential owing to the lack of strict implementation policies in emerging economies. Apart from developing guidelines, there is a need for stricter rules that ensure food companies adhere to safety standards. However, the food industry is highly fragmented with multiple local or unregistered producers of food items. These companies may end up not adopting food quality and safety management guidelines and may continue to operate under the radar due to the absence of a coordinated approach in dealing with such players. The risk of contamination is higher in countries with poor food quality testing regulations and facilities.

Food Safety Testing Services Market: Opportunities

Rising number of new food testing facilities to create growth opportunities

The global food safety testing services market growth trend is expected to be reshaped owing to the quickly changing ecosystem of new and advanced food safety testing facilities. The increasing food transactions and rising number of players have resulted in greater demand for efficient facilities that can tackle modern food testing problems resulting in higher investments toward testing facilities equipped with all the essential tools. For instance, in July 2023, Spectacular Labs Inc., a leading provider of next-generation rapid pathogen testing, announced its plan to showcase a novel and game-changing technology at the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) 2023 Annual Meeting. The technology developed by Spectacular Labs will allow companies operating in the food & beverages (F&B) industry to test for pathogens on-site without hassle. It will also help testing laboratories operational scalability at cost-effective rates. In Nagaland, an Indian state, the Health & Family Welfare Department launched two new ‘Modified Food Safety on Wheels’ under the Food Safety Project scheme. The primary goal of these units is to test surveillance samples and train or create awareness among food business operators along with educating consumers about the importance of food safety.

Food Safety Testing Services Market: Challenges

High cost of testing devices, services, and rapid technical evolution to challenge market growth

The devices and equipment used by food safety testing service providers are expensive, especially tools that are used for specific testing. On the other hand, companies providing these services have added costs which means higher expenses for food companies. Moreover, the changing risk factors leading to food contamination with the detection of new contaminants, bacteria, and chemical composition require the testing technology to constantly evolve making it difficult for service providers to remain updated with modern systems.

Food Safety Testing Services Market: Segmentation

The global food safety testing services market is segmented based on target, food, technology, and region.

Based on target, the global market segments are mycotoxin, pathogens, heavy metals, allergens, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and others. In 2022, the demand for pathogen target testing services since the most frequently and widely tested contaminants are dangerous pathogens such as Listeria, E. coli, and Salmonella. Consuming products infected are known to cause serious illnesses in animals and humans. On the other hand, E. coli infection can lead to food poisoning. In the US, more than 73000 illnesses caused by E. coli are registered every year.

Based on food, the food safety testing services industry segments are cereals & grains, meat, poultry, & seafood, fruits & vegetables, processed food, dairy products, and others.

Based on technology, the food safety testing services industry is divided into chromatography & spectrometry, traditional testing, and rapid testing. In 2022, the chromatography & spectrometry segment was the leading revenue generator due to the extensive application of these technologies to test several food contaminants. During the forecast period, demand for rapid testing including polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) are likely to register the highest CAGR since they provide quick results and are effective in detecting the presence of key unwanted components. As per official data, over 15000 new food products are launched every year.
