Pathogens testing dominated the market in 2016
In developing and under-developed countries, pathogens are major causes of foodborne illnesses and death whereas in developed countries, millions of cases of infectious gastrointestinal diseases are reported each year due to foodborne pathogens, costing billions of dollars in medical care and lost productivity. Traditional methods, which have been widely used in pathogen testing of food, are very time consuming and take as high as 7 to 8 days to provide the results due to which this segment dominated the market in 2016.
PCR-based segment projected to grow at the highest CAGR, by technology, from 2017 to 2022
PCR is the dominant rapid test technology applied in food testing; the market for the same is projected to grow at a significant rate in the next five years. The market for PCR-based technology in rapid test is growing due to the automated, faster, and accurate results with low level of detection.
Meat & seafood products segment projected to grow at the highest CAGR, by food tested, from 2017 to 2022
Meat & seafood products are tested by means of rapid test technologies for various contaminants. Meat speciation testing, in its different forms, is a routine practice conducted to safeguard consumer interest and health, especially against malpractices such as adulterations. This segment is expected to grow at a high rate primarily due to increasing stringency of regulations for meat products along with increasing cases of contaminated meat.
Significant growth for rapid test is observed in the Asia-Pacific region
The requirement for rapid test has grown in the region in recent years, owing to an increase in consumer awareness in the Asia-Pacific region regarding the safety of food products. The growth in this market is fueled by the economic development in countries such as China and India. Food safety procedure compliance in Europe (a major importer) is severe, and in order to hold the food trade, Chinese food producers have to comply with the food standards and regulations. China is a potential market for rapid test due to various factors such as unhygienic food practices, human negligence, regulatory violations, and fraudulent practices growing incidences of foodborne illness due to contaminated food.
