DUBLIN, Ireland, August 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vm7cw6/food_safety) has announced the addition of the "Food Safety Testing Market - Global Trends Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.
Food Safety Testing Market Is Projected To Increase At A CAGR Of 7.2% By 2018
Food safety testing concerns the testing of food products to ensure absence of contaminants that are responsible for food-borne illness, toxicity or poisoning. This report explicitly describes the global food safety testing market in terms of contaminants such as pathogens, toxins, pesticides, genetically modified organisms, food allergens, chemical residues, etc.; food types such as meat and poultry products, dairy products, processed foods, fruits and vegetables, cereals, food additives, etc.; technologies such as traditional and rapid testing methods; and geographic regions.
Consumption of contaminated foodstuff leads to outbreaks of food-borne illness and poisoning. Contamination of food can occur due to exposure to contaminated equipments or raw materials, contaminated water, improper handling, and inefficient treatment. Regulatory bodies have been implementing food safety regulations to manufacture safe food using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Good Agriculture Practices (GAP), and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) systems. These regulations specify testing of food materials and food manufacturing processes at every stage, to prevent food contamination and outbreaks of food-borne poisoning. Worldwide implementation of these food safety regulations has been driving the food safety testing market.
The global food safety testing market is projected to grow from $9,262.3 million in 2012 to $14,030.2 million by 2018. In 2012, North America dominated the food safety testing market. The regulatory bodies in North America have been strictly supervising the implementation of HACCP system by food manufacturers. The food safety concern among consumers has also been increasing due to media influence. In 2012, the U.S. food safety testing market was largest due to stringent regulations such as zero tolerance policy for listeria contamination. The cost, in terms of recall and storage of contaminated products, has cemented the need for testing during each stage of production, thereby driving the food safety testing market.
The rapid technology market to detect the presence of contaminants has been increasing owing to the fact that they are a time-saving and cost-effective method as compared to traditional culturing and enrichment methods.
'Food Safety Testing Market - Global Trends Forecast to 2018' provides a complete breakdown of the market by contaminants (Pathogen, GMO, Toxin, Pesticide, Others), technology (Traditional & Rapid), food types (Meat & Poultry, Dairy, Fruit & Vegetable, Processed Food, Others) and geographic region. The result is an unparallelled and valuable source of direction for anyone involved in the food safety testing industry.
