DUBLIN, July 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "GMO Testing Market by Trait (Stacked, Herbicide Tolerance, Insect Resistance), Technology (Polymerase Chain Reaction, Immunoassay), Crop Tested, Processed Food Tested, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report to their offering.
The market for GMO testing has grown exponentially in the last few years. The market size is projected to reach USD 2.34 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of around 8.2% from 2017 to 2022
Both, developed and developing countries have been targeted for this industry as the consumer concerns toward GMOs have been revolutionizing the GMO testing technology. Need to ensure sufficient nutrition, evolution in farming technology, labeling mandates in several countries, diverse GM processed food production, and high investments in biotech R&D have been driving the market for GMO testing.
The GMO testing market, on the basis of trait, is segmented into stacked, herbicide tolerance, and insect resistance. The stacked trait testing market accounted for the largest in 2016, and is projected to be the fastest-growing in GM testing for crops and foods due to the increase in R&D innovations and multiplicity of different traits in one crop or food. Also, the expenses and the procedure associated with the testing stacked trait are higher.
North America is projected to be the fastest-growing region for GM food safety testing, as it is the largest GM crops producing country, along with the need to comply with the GMO labeling regulations from importing countries.
The active U.S. players in this market are Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.), Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Mérieux NutriSciences Corporation (U.S.), EMSL Analytical Inc. (U.S.), Microbac Laboratories, Inc. (U.S.), Genetic ID NA, Inc. (U.S.), and OMIC USA Inc. (U.S.)
