Advance testing kits and devices help in providing fast, convenient, accurate, and sensitive food safety analysis.

Global COVID-19 Impact on Food Safety Testing Market Insights 

The global COVID-19 impact on the food safety testing market has the potential to grow with USD 13.2 billion with propelling CAGR in the forecast period from 2020-2021. The factors that are driving the market demand for global food safety testing with ongoing COVID-19 are propelling the demand for processed food and thus, increasing the need for safety and testing of food.

Food safety issues involve the essential lives of people in all countries. The increasing number of food-borne disease cases caused by the outbreak of food pollution incidents always alert governments and other food testing parties so that they increase the detection of food safety, adopt intelligent practices and actively monitor the instrument to work.

Moreover, with the development of the internet industry and the rapid rise of mobile communication technology, it has laid a rigid foundation for the development of food safety big data industry. Food safety testing instruments have developed rapidly, and some advanced techniques have continuously penetrated the field of food analysis and become an essential pillar of modern food analysis.

Keeping all workers in the supply chains and food production healthy and safe is critical to avoid food shortages. To balance the dangerous situation, need to maintain the safety and integrity of the food supply chain, support international trade, food safety regulators need to prioritize critically essential services during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. To facilitate this, WHO and FAO have developed guidelines for food safety authorities, and FAO has provided policy guidance for food safety and food security measures in the light of the pandemic and ensure and maintain access to safe food.

Therefore, to avoid the potential risk of a food crisis, quick steps are taking care to protect the most vulnerable groups, ensure the regular operation of the global food supply chain, and reduce the impact of the epidemic on the entire food system.

Growth Driver

Rising Consumer Concern

The outbreak of coronavirus is not only impacting the consumer lifestyle but also increases the risk of the virus spreading as everything is coming from outside. Thus, the food industry and supply chain are affected as consumers are concerned about the security and safety of the food product. Therefore, the market for food testing and measure is bolstering the market value to provide safe and healthy to the consumers.

Adoption of Testing Technologies

The rise in the food security testing market is propelling the market need for the adoption of various testing technologies. This technology enables testing the virus on food and enhances the function and operations of the supply chain of the food industry.

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The world is facing an unprecedented threat caused by the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus (also known as the COVID-19 virus). Countries are adopting the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) to maintain the distance between people as one of the ways to reduce the spread of disease. Many food industry workers do not have the opportunity to work from home and must continue to work in their usual workplace. Prolong the health and safety of all workers in the food production and supply chain is crucial in the current epidemic prevention and control. Maintaining the circulation of food in the food supply chain is an essential function for which all stakeholders in the supply chain must contribute. Thus, it also requires maintaining consumer trust and confidence in food safety and availability.

The food industry establishes a food safety management system (FSMS) based on the principles of hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) to manage food safety risks and prevent food contamination. To maintain the sanitation of food processing environments are the foundation of the food safety management system of food enterprises, including proper hygiene practices, cleanliness, and hygiene, etc. to prevent food contamination.

As biotechnology has widely used in food inspection, which not only improves the accuracy of food inspection but also expands the new direction of food inspection, significantly improving the safety of food. DNA-based testing technology refers to molecular biology techniques for detecting the most common pathogens in food. Use of chips and instruments, this technology provides the most straightforward, fast, and reliable solutions. The food safety test chip is an innovative product based on DNA gene technology. It can detect common microorganisms or nucleic acids in many different food substrates using special reagents and instruments.

By Targets Tested Segmental Analysis

Based on the targets tested, the global COVID-19 impact on the food safety testing market classified into Pathogen, GMO, Allergen, and Mycotoxin. The pathogen segment is estimated to dominate the maximum share of the food safety testing market in the forecast period. With the increasing development of the food industry and changes in consumer consumption habits, the requirements for food hygiene and food safety are becoming higher and higher. Due to environmental and climate influences, food-borne pathogens contaminate foods and cause more and more diseases. Therefore, the need for testing pathogens and modern analytic instruments and technologies developed to detect pathogens on food and improves the safety and security of food.

By Region Segmental Analysis

Based on geography, the global COVID-19 impact on the food safety testing market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America region is capturing the largest market share of the global food safety testing market. It is mainly owing to the stringent rules, regulations, and technologies that are used to test the safety of food products. Moreover, massive investment in R&D, test kits, and laboratories are made to ensure processed food safety testing in the North American region.
