The food allergen testing market was valued at US$ 592.39 million in 2018 and is projected to reach US$ 1,198.53 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2019 to 2027.

Food allergens are naturally present proteins in foods or ingredients that cause abnormal immune response. It is caused when the human immune system wrongly recognizes these proteins in food as harmful. The most common food allergens reported around the globe include eggs, seafood, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, wheat, tree nuts, Brazil nuts, pine nuts, cashews, pistachios, and walnuts. As food allergens represent an ever-increasing risk for people with allergies, it is critical for food producers to conduct routine tests for the potential presence of allergens in their food products. Food allergen testing helps verify if raw materials and the final food product are free of unwanted food allergens. Food industries commonly use Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) to detect allergens in food products as it is an easy and less time-consuming technique; moreover, the assay is highly sensitive, cost-effective, reliable, and accurate. ELISA is successfully used to detect allergens in milk and milk products, meat and meat products, fish and fish products, nuts, soybean, and nut-based products, and fruit juices and their ingredients, among others.

The COVID-19 pandemic originated in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, and since then, it has spread around the globe at a fast pace. The US, Russia, India, Italy, China, Spain, France and Germany are among the worst-affected countries in terms confirmed cases and reported deaths, as of June 2020. The pandemic has affected economies and industries due to imposed lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Food &beverages is one of the world’s major industries suffering serious disruptions such as supply chain breaks, technology events cancellations, and office shutdowns as a result of this outbreak. The global Food Allergen Testing Market economic collapse due to COVID-19 is also limiting the demand for food allergen testing due to shutting down of factories andsuspended production due to obstacles in supply chains.

Market Insights

Growing International Trade of Food and Food Ingredients

Rapid growth in the food & beverages industry as well as increasing international trade of food and food ingredients provide opportunities for the growth of the key players operating in the food allergen testing market. The food and food ingredients imported in North America, Europe, and the Middle East are strictly checked against quality and labeling standards. Therefore, the food and beverage manufacturers exporting their products in countries in these regionsneed to follow stringent food safety and labeling regulations, which further raises the necessity for food allergen testing. The world has seen an overall increase in food demand due to increases in population, urbanization, and higher purchasing power, coupled with a shift in dietary preferences. Countries such as India, Japan, Australia, Brazil, and Mexico have well-established food industries, and the food produced in these countries is mainly exported in countries such as the US, Germany, France, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. The food producers are focusing on increasing the overall export to earn greater profits. Various types of food and food ingredients such as dairy, seafood, eggs, fruit and vegetables, luxury foods, organic food, meat, packaged food, condiments, and cereal-based products are exported globally.

Source Insights

The food allergen testing market, based on source, is segmented into Peanut and Soy, Wheat, Milk, Egg, Tree Nuts, Seafood, and Others. In 2018, the milk segment accounted for the largest share of the market. The largest share of the milk segment is primarily attributed to the increasing incidence of food allergies caused by milk in regions such as North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Lactose intolerance is a digestive disorder caused by the inability to digest lactose, which is the main carbohydrate found in dairy products.Therefore, people suffering from lactose intolerance avoid milk and dairy products. Allergy to cow milk is the most common food allergy in infants and young children. ~2.5% of children below 3 years of age are allergic to milk. An increasing number of people suffering from lactose intolerance worldwide is boosting the growth of the food allergen testing market for the milk segment.

Technology Insights

The food allergen testing market, based on technology, is segmented into PCR-based, immunoassay-based/ELISA, and other tests/techniques.Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technique widely used to quickly make millions to billions of copies of a definite DNA sample, permitting scientists to take a very small sample of DNA and intensify it to a large enough amount to study in detail. PCR was invented in 1984 by the American biochemist Kary Mullis at Cetus Corporation. It is important to much of genetic testing, including examination of ancient samples of DNA and identification of infectious agents. Among others, immunoassay based/elisa is the most commonly used and popular methodology for the routine monitoring of allergens owing to its high precision, sensitivity and good potential for standardization. Elisa is also the leading protocol for most commercial kits intended for quantitating low levels of food allergens in food ingredients along with processed and prepared foods and beverages. Consequently, there is an increasing demand for analytical strategies which are used outside the laboratory environment to assess the quality and safety of foods on-site.

Food Tested Insights

Bakery products and confectionery, infant food, processed food, dairy products and alternatives, seafood and meat products, and other foods are susceptible to cause allergies. Additionally, the degrading quality of animal feed gives rise to the possibility of meat causing allergies in humans. Although the food &beverages industry is witnessing rise in demand for animal feed additives capable of improving the quality of feed, the food intolerance testing market yet holds strong position owing to ameliorate allergies caused by meat.
