Food Safety Testing Market: Drivers & Challenge

Market Driver:

  • Stringent Food Safety Regulations

Increased outbreaks of foodborne diseases across the globe, various regulatory bodies are implementing stringent food safety regulations to support the demand for food safety testing. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2019, almost 1 in 10 persons become ill because of eating contaminated food, and over 420,000 people die every year as a result of food-borne diseases, resulting in the loss of 33 million healthy life years. Factors such as growing complexity in the food supply chain, instances of adulteration, and lack of adoption of proper hygiene and sanitation have increased the instance of contamination of food products resulting in the outbreak of illness and poisoning in humans. This has caused severe concern among producers, end consumers, and regulatory authorities. Owing to these concerns stringent food safety regulations have been imposed by various bodies such as Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ISO, FSSAI, and amongst others. Thus, growing concern regarding the outbreak of foodborne diseases has lead to stringent food safety regulations by various food authorizes, which is further expected to drive the food safety testing market growth.

Market Challenge:

  • Limited Supporting Infrastructure in Developing Countries

The food processing industry in developing countries is dominated by small-scale regional players and is highly fragmented. In countries such as Cuba, Ethiopia, and Bangladesh lack the basic supporting infrastructure required for setting up of testing laboratories. Moreover, such countries do not have adequate frameworks for food safety testing due to various constraints such as economic instability, limited awareness, and lack of government support. Thus, limited supporting infrastructure in developing countries has expected to hinder the growth of the food safety testing market during the forecasted period.
