The food diagnostic market refers to the testing of food, which requires different sampling equipment to check the consumables that bacteria contaminate them or not. The food diagnostic used to identify the pathogens that can cause chronic health diseases.
The global food diagnostic market expected to spur market value with USD 25.8 billion with anticipating CAGR in the forecast period from 2020-2027. The driving force behind this market’s growth is mainly due to the increased incidence of foodborne diseases, the globalization of the food trade, and the increased demand for efficient, reliable, and real-time food testing.
Food safety problems are emerging one after another, and food diagnostic has ushered in rapid development. In recent years, food safety has become the focus of national and social concern, and the demands of manufacturers and consumers for food safety have increased significantly. It mainly owes to the increasing number of foodborne disease cases caused by the outbreak of food contamination incidents, and the growing demand from consumers for better quality and safer food has led to the continuous expansion of food diagnostic market.
Additionally, the growth of the food safety testing market has been affected by the rise in traded foods and the increasing seriousness of illegal activities such as food scandals, counterfeiting, and adulteration. As food crosses borders, it is often difficult for regulatory authorities to trace adulterated ingredients and protect the food supply chain. Food ingredients most at risk of contamination include milk, olive oil, honey, fish, coffee, juice, tea, and spices such as saffron and black pepper.
Moreover, food pollution will have a significant impact on consumers’ health, and food safety problems are more serious, making food pathogen testing more and more needed. Therefore, the food safety diagnostic market has significant growth potential in the next few years.
Furthermore, due to trade and domestic demand, the demand for meat and poultry is expected to grow at a significant rate in the next few years. Meat and poultry products often expose various disadvantages, such as deterioration. Therefore, it expected that the safety testing of meat and poultry products would grow at a significant rate in the forecast period.
With the gradual opening of the market, the reform of state-owned institutions accelerates, and the merger and integration of private enterprises expected to develop rapidly in the future. The company’s existing food testing laboratory can provide customers with nutrition labels, genetic testing, food additives, heavy metal and trace element microorganisms, food packaging materials, isotopes, health food raw materials, and helps in creating awareness among consumers.
The rapid, sensitive, and accurate instrument analysis characteristics are more evident in a new era of development and introduction of computer technology. The combination of multiple technologies makes instrument analysis more widely used, actively promoting the growth of the food diagnostic market, and making food analysis positive.
Based on the type, the global food diagnostic market segment into Systems, Consumables. Consumable part dominates the largest segment in the global food diagnostic market. It is mainly owing to the consumable, which used to test by food diagnostic equipment. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) equipment used for testing consumable to check microbial analysis and pathogen testing. Therefore, consumable contributes to the largest share in the global food diagnostic market.
Based on the systems, the global food diagnostic market bifurcated into Hybridization-based, Chromatography-based, Spectrometry-based, Immunoassay-based, Biosensors, Testing kits, Others. The Hybridization-based segment dominates the market share for the global food diagnostic market. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and microarray systems have become powerful tools for food analysis due to their high analytical accuracy, user-friendly procedures, and accurate output of food diagnostics. Also, hybridization-based systems are the preferred diagnostic system for detecting and quantifying foodborne pathogens. The system can also use to identify mutations in food pathogens that cause chronic infections. Therefore, the hybrid-based system helps in detecting food contaminants and further promotes the growth of the food diagnostic market.
Based on the consumables, the global food diagnostic classified into Reagents, Test accessories, Disinfectants, Others. The reagents segment will capture the largest share in the global food diagnostic market. The diagnostic reagents such as qPCR are reliable and provide performance to deliver sensitive and accurate results while testing food samples. It is easy to use, cost-effective, and provide excellent quality. Therefore, reagents used to detect the contamination in food to maintain the quality and safety of the food.
Based on the type of test, the global food diagnostic market bifurcated into safety, control. The safety type of test segment accounts for the highest share in the global food diagnostic market. It is mainly owing to the emerging public health concern and food toxicity due to increasing food adulteration. Thus, it raises the concern for the food sector, and the presence of food contamination can lead to food illness, which can cause severe health problems. Thus, safety type of tests is significant for testing for global food diagnostic market.
Based on geography, the global food diagnostic market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. Europe is the world’s fastest-growing food diagnostic market, accounting for the largest share in the global market. It mainly due to maintaining food standards and protecting consumer health and ensuring the quality of the food supply chain. Thus, in turn, further promotes the growth of the European food diagnostic market.
Companies such as Actiw Oy, GEBHARDT Fördertechnik GmbH, HAVER & BOECKER OHG, and ATLS Ltd, Joloda International Ltd., C&D Skilled Robotics, Inc., and VDL Systems B.V. among others are key players in the global food diagnostic market.
