Title: Global Food Pathogen Testing Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Type (E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter and Others), by Application (Meat and Poultry, Fish and Seafood, Dairy, Cereals and Grains and Others), and by Technology (Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), Immunoassay based, Chromatography, Biosensors, Agar Culturing),Forecast Period (2023-2030).
The global food pathogen testing market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.2% during the Forecast Period (2023-2030). due to globalization of food trade, rising incidences of foodborne disease outbreaks, consumer awareness, government initiatives to maintain food hygiene, and advancement in modern testing technology. Globalization of the supply chain has led to the rapid international dispersal of foods. Consequently, pathogens can be inadvertently introduced in new geographical areas. Travelers and immigrants may be exposed to unfamiliar foodborne hazards in new area, which can be life-threatening for the individual.
The global food pathogen testing market is segmented by the type, application, and technology. Based on the type, the market is sub-segmented into e. coli, salmonella, listeria, campylobacter and others. Based on the application, the market is sub-segmented into meat and poultry, fish and seafood, dairy, cereals and grains and others. Further, based on technology, the market is sub-segmented into PCR, immunoassay based, chromatography, biosensors, and agar culturing. Among the type, the e. coli sub-segment is anticipated to hold a considerable share of the market. Countries such as US are witnessing an increase in E. coli outbreaks. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, in August 2022, around 37 cases of E. coli were reported in four U.S. states and were linked to burgers or sandwiches with romaine lettuce at Wendy's food chains. Efforts to eliminate the cases of such outbreak would foster the market growth.
Among the application, the dairy sub-segment is expected to hold a considerable share of the food pathogen testing market. The presence of foodborne pathogens in milk is caused by direct contact with contaminated sources, such as milk containers in dairy farms and an infected animal's excrement. Inadequate milk pasteurization is another important source of pathogenic presence in milk. Furthermore, some bacteria, like as Listeria, can survive post-pasteurization procedures, resulting in product contamination. Because unpasteurized milk is utilized in cheese production, tainted dairy products may be consumed by a sizable portion of the population. Unpasteurized milk consumption and unsanitary dairy product handling have raised demand for dairy product testing, which is expected to greatly expand the food pathogen testing market. Diseases such as zoonosis infections commonly associated with the consumption of milk and milk products are tuberculosis, brucellosis, leptospirosis, salmonellosis and listeriosis. It is a contagious disease that can be passed from vertebrate animals to humans.
The global food pathogen testing market is further segmented based on geography including North America (the US, and Canada), Europe (UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, France, and the Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (India, China, Japan, South Korea, and Rest of Asia), and the Rest of the World (the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Among these, North America is anticipated to hold a prominent share of the market across the globe, owing to the rising occurrence of foodborne diseases in the region. Moreover, the presence of prominent players in region and on-going research activities for the development of more accurate and less time-consuming tests are likely to support the steady growth of the regional market.
Foodborne diseases pose a significant threat to densely populated countries such as India and China in the Asia-Pacific region, which happens to be the fastest-growing market for food pathogen testing. The growth can be attributed to the increasing focus on compliance with safety standards, high-volume food trade within the region, and the strict safety regulations followed by developed economies worldwide. The increasing export of agricultural products within the region can rise the foodborne illnesses and consequently, health risks posed by microbial pathogens in food. According to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Asia-Pacific region has a poor track record when it comes to preventing foodborne illnesses, resulting in the deaths of 225,000 people each year, poor hygiene and mishandling are among the main culprits. Exposure to the elements such as of street food and fresh produce that is left out for hours in open air markets and in hot climates. Undercooking of food and lack of proper refrigeration also contribute to food that becomes unfit to eat. In economic terms, the World Bank estimates that, globally, each year unsafe food causes losses of $ 95 billion in low-and middle-income countries alone.
The major companies serving the Food Pathogen Testing market include: Agilent Technologies, Inc., Microbac Laboratories, Inc., ALS Limited, AsureQuality Ltd., BIOMERIEUX, Merieux NutriSciences Corporation, Neogen Corporation, Romer Labs Division Holding. and others. The market players are considerably contributing to the market growth by the adoption of various strategies including mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations, funding, and new product launches, to stay competitive in the market.
