According to a new market research report “Food Safety Testing Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Contaminant (Pathogens, Pesticides, Toxins, GMOs, and Others), Technology (Traditional and Rapid), and Food Type (Meat, Poultry, and Seafood Products; Dairy Products; Cereals and Grains; Processed Food; Fruits and Vegetables; and Others)” published by TheInsightPartners, the Food Safety Testing market size is projected to grow from US$ 20,733.4 million in 2021 to US$ 34,142.5 million by 2028, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.4% during the forecast period.

Food safety testing is a scientific analysis of a food product and its contents to find information about various characteristics such as physiochemical properties, composition, and structure. The information is used to determine the safety of the product for consumption. The rising prevalence of foodborne illnesses demands food safety testing for all food and beverage products to prevent health hazards, which boosts the growth of the food safety testing market.

As per the data published by the World Health Organization (WHO), the consumption of unsafe food causes 420,000 deaths and 600 million cases of foodborne diseases worldwide each year. Foodborne diseases are preventable; hence, numerous organizations and governments lead coordinated actions to build resilient and robust food safety systems across multiple industries. Moreover, a 2018 World Bank report estimated that the economic burden through a total loss of productivity faced due to foodborne illnesses was estimated to be US$ 95.2 billion per year. Therefore, the food safety testing market is witnessing growth due to consumer awareness regarding food safety and government efforts to prevent foodborne illnesses.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Food Safety Testing Market

Consumer awareness is one of the major drivers of the food safety testing market across the world. The COVID-19 outbreak positively impacted the market as consumers and governments are focused on the safety and hygiene of products meant for consumption. All food & beverages sectors face challenges amid the outbreak as the SARS-CoV-2 is highly infectious and could possibly travel through food surfaces. Meat and poultry processing facilities faced distinctive challenges with respect to virus transmission as workers in several facilities across the world were infected. For instance, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services reported in July 2020 that 239 facilities in 23 states fell subject to COVID-19 infection. The total reported cases were 16,233, with 86 related deaths. Moreover, in November 2020, China reported that a frozen pork knuckle sample imported in China had triggered a new COVID-19 case in the country. Such cases of COVID-19 infections in the food industry have created apprehensions among consumers and governments, which propelled the demand for food safety testing to mitigate health risks.

Emergence of Foodborne Illness Outbreaks

Foodborne illnesses are toxic or infectious. They can be caused by the chemical substances, parasites, viruses entering the body through contaminated water or food. Foodborne pathogens can cause debilitating infections, such as meningitis or severe diarrhea. In some cases chemical contamination can cause long-term diseases, such as cancer, or short-term illness, such as acute poisoning. A few examples of unsafe food are raw shellfish containing marine biotoxins, vegetables and fruits contaminated with feces, and uncooked foods of animal origin. E. Coli, campylobacter, and salmonella are among the most common foodborne pathogens that affect millions of people worldwide annually and result in fatal or severe outcomes. A few symptoms of foodborne illnesses are diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, headache, and fever.

Moreover, listeria infection leads to death of newborn babies or miscarriages in pregnant women. Although the chances of this disease are relatively low, the fatality of listeria makes it one of the most serious foodborne infections. Vibrio cholera infects people through contaminated food or water. Its symptoms may include severe dehydration, profuse watery diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and could possibly result in death. Various types of seafood, millet gruel, vegetables, and rice have been implicated in cholera outbreaks. Therefore, the demand for food safety testing is increasing to prevent the incidence of foodborne illnesses.
