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.
A few key players operating in the global food safety testing market are SGS SA, Eurofins Scientific, Intertek Group Plc, TÜV SÜD, AES Laboratories Pvt. Ltd., TÜV NORD GROUP., Bureau Veritas, ALS Limited, NEOGEN Corporation, and AsureQuality.
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.
