Food Safety Testing Market Size Worth $ 40.91 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 7.3%

The global Food Safety Testing market size is expected to reach USD 40.91 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Food Safety Testing Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Test (Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) Testing, Residues & Contamiation Testing, Microbiological Testing, Allergen Testing, Chemical & Nutritional Testing, Others); By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Stringent regulations imposed by local governments and concerned authorities, driven by the increasing threat of widespread foodborne infections and food adulteration, have spurred the growth of food safety testing. The market has witnessed a surge in demand for testing allergens, particularly in response to consumers' growing intolerance to substances like gluten and dairy. Manufacturers globally are introducing allergy-free products, rigorously tested for allergens and trace particles in both packaged and processed food items. Additionally, chemical testing in organic products is gaining traction, with companies conducting thorough testing to ensure compliance with the regulatory standards of various countries. For instance, the European Union maintains a comprehensive list of over 500 chemicals and hazardous compounds that must be eliminated from organic products destined for European countries.

The escalating demand for high-quality food in recent decades is driven by increasing consumer awareness regarding food quality, as well as considerations related to health and the environment. To ensure food safety, quality, and proper labeling, regulatory bodies like the Codex Alimentarius Commission are implementing and monitoring standards through effective food control activities. In countries like the United States and several other developed nations, government approval is required for food additives, including preservatives, emulsifiers, and colors, before they can be used in foods. Producers must submit scientific data verifying the safety of these additives, with laws and regulations establishing safety guidelines that encompass various toxicities, such as carcinogenicity and effects on digestion. Title 21, Part 170 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations defines a drug as safe when there is "an assurance that the material is not dangerous within the intended conditions and restrictions." Once a food component is deemed safe and approved, it can be utilized in diverse food applications.
